I'm over the hills about the news that ex - The Hills and The City reality TV star, turned PR gal, turned fashion designer Whitney Port has just signed on to become one of the four judges on Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model! She and male model Tyson Beckford will replace Grace Woodward and Charley Speed and will team up with Elle Macpherson and Julien Macdonald on the judging panel. Rumour has it that Kelly Osbourne was the front-runner for the gig, but apparently, Whit won out. In a statement earlier this week she said,
"I am so excited to be joining Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model. I'm a huge fan of the show and am honoured to be in the company of the talented fellow judges and host, all fashion figures and designers I admire. As a designer and someone who loves fashion, this is a role I'm really looking forward to. Plus any chance to spend more time in the UK is an added bonus."
The next season of Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model will air on Sky Living this Summer. Will you be tuning in to watch Whitney, Tyson, Julien and Elle in action?

Whitney Port has been on our style radar for quite some time now — we love her effortless appeal and inventive mix-and-match skills — and even though the star of The Hills and The City is "relieved to not have to dress [up] for the cameras anymore," it doesn't mean she's slowing down. Whitney has been hard at work designing the Spring '12 collection for her line Whitney Eve and recently teamed up with Chandon and the National Breast Cancer Foundation for a night of fashion, sparkling wine, and charity on a gorgeous evening in Napa. We headed to Domaine Chandon to check out the Whitney Eve presentation and talk to the style star about her work with the NBCF, her design inspiration, and her plans for Fall dressing.
FabSugar: What inspired you to get involved with the National Breast Cancer Foundation?
Whitney Port: I have family members that have been affected by the disease, and I really want to stress the importance of early detection. It's so crucial to go out and get tested, because the earlier they find something, the better chances you have of survival.
FS: You've lived in NYC and Los Angeles — how do you differentiate East Coast vs. West Coast dressing?
WP: When I lived in New York, I was inspired to dress up a lot more, and look more sophisticated. But when I'm in LA, I prefer to keep things casual — most days when I go to the office I'm in cutoffs, a t-shirt, and Converse sneakers. I'm so relieved to not have to dress up for the camera anymore. It's fun to go out and do events and get dolled up, but most of the time I'm just at a bar with friends, totally dressed down.

Celebrities like Kelly Osbourne, Whitney Port, and Avril Lavigne were out and about in Los Angles the past two nights rocking really different asymmetrical-printed outfits. Kelly donned a busy dress to a screening of God Bless Ozzy Osbourne, Whit paired her bold shorts with a demure grey blouse, whilst Avril wore a printed black tee with black shorts and sexy skin-bearing tights. I think prints are fun when they are worn alone, but mixing and matching them gives me a bit of pause. Shop some fun printed separates below, and let me know which items you like best!
Later, Whitney made an appearance at the W South Beach — where the temperature and humidity was off the charts — for a Skintimate-sponsored afterparty that also feted Hoffman's collaboration with the brand. And on the subject of beating the heat, Whitney had a few anecdotes of her own to share. During the summertime, Whitney can't live without her Fresh High Noon bronzer, herbal mist spray by Finer Skin Institute, and CoverGirl lipstick. When it comes to those famous strands of hers, Whitney, who recently colored her hair a strawberry blond, admits she's open to changes. She said, "I'm loving my color now as it gets blonder from the sun, Who knows what I will do next. Suggestions?"
