The 30-year-old presenter made the difficult decision to leave the programme after an outraged public deemed Giuliana Rancic’s comments about Zendaya’s dreadlocked hair at the Oscars racist.

But she has finally moved on from the scandal by landing a new gig on a whole new series.

“I'm so excited to finally announce that I've joined the incredible #ProjectRunwayJunior family! We just had the best first day ever!” Kelly wrote on her Instagram account Thursday in a caption attached a photo of herself posing alongside co-judges Christian Siriano, Aya Kanai and the show’s host Hannah Davis.

Project Runway Junior is a spin-off of the hit fashion reality TV competition Project Runway. The Junior series will showcase the talents of very young designers who range between the ages of 14 and 17.

The latest TV show was greenlit in June and is set to debut this fall. Project Runway Junior came about after Project Runway anchor Heidi Klum expressed interest in a youth-oriented version of the programme due to inspiration from her own children.

Even though Kelly has previously admitted leaving her post at Fashion Police was a challenge, the star said she enjoyed every moment she spent under the tutelage of her former co-host Joan Rivers, a comedic entertainment icon who passed away in September 2014.

“I will always, always love, love, love the time I spent working with Joan [Rivers] and George [Kotsiopoulos] and [Joan’s daughter] Melissa," Kelly told People magazine. "They're the most incredible people. They're still part of my family."
