Elaine Welteroth gives the tulle skirt a facelift with her latest on-camera look.

The journalist turned television personality returns to the cast of the hit fashion design competition show “Project Runway” as a judge. For the season 19 premiere episode yesterday, Welteroth wore a bright and voluminous dress that speaks to the current trends in fashion. The ensemble consisted of a red crop top that incorporated a poofy shoulder and a red billowing tiered tulle skirt.

When it came down to the shoes, Welteroth wore a pair of sleek black suede pointed-toe boots, which helped to elevate the chic moment.

Welteroth’s fashion tastes are very fashion-forward and edgy, seeing as though she was the editor-In-chief of Teen Vogue in 2017. Riddled through her Instagram feed are pictures of her wearing silhouettes like tailored suiting, easy dresses, fun swimsuits and printed separates. For shoes, Welteroth dabbles in sharp knee-high boots, breezy sandals and festive pumps.

The contestant pool of the Bravo series consists of up-and-coming designers who all come from diverse backgrounds, including: Anna Yinan Zhou, Sabrina Spanta, Zayden Skipper, Chasity Sereal, Aaron Michael, Shantall Lacayo, Katie Kortman, Kristina Kharlashkina, Bones Jones, Prajjé Oscar Jean-Baptiste, Meg Ferguson, Coral Castillo, Caycee Black, Kenneth Barlis, Darren Apolonio and Octavio Aguilar. As seen on last night’s episode, the first contestant eliminated was Caycee Black.

The beloved judges of the series, Brandon Maxwell and Nina Garcia also returned. Christian Siriano made a comeback as the host and mentor.

Last year’s winner for season 18, Geoffrey Mac, has gone on to create and open his eponymous label.
