Forget wedding planning. SI Swimsuit cover model Hannah Davis has a much more pressing task on her hands as judge of Lifetime's newest show Project Runway Junior, which debuts tonight at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The show follows 12 designers, ages 13 to 17, as they vie for a scholarship to the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles, a feature in Seventeen magazine, a home sewing and crafting studio and a $25,000 cash prize.

Hannah will be joined at the judging table by Kelly Osbourne, designer Christian Siriano and executive fashion editor at Cosmopolitan and Seventeen Magazine Aya Kanai​. The contestants will be mentored by Project Runway’s Tim Gunn. The show will receive a huge boost on the Dec. 10 episode, when First Lady Michelle Obama will make a special video appearance.

Hannah has served as guest judge on Project Runway, so she's no stranger to the franchise. But critiquing teenagers can be a bit tricky. In a video for Access Hollywood Live, Hannah spoke about the difficulty of criticizing kids "I want each kid to have the right opportunity to get further in the competition so I felt that I really had to be honest with them. And I wanted them to get better and learn and evolve as a designer on the show."

And who better to teach them then our cover model?
