Get ready to work on that smize because America's Next Top Model is coming back this fall on VH1 with a new host and panel of judges.

The Viacom-owned cable network announced Friday that its reincarnation of ANTM will be hosted by pop star Rita Ora, with Paper Magazine chief creative officer Drew Elliott, supermodel Ashley Graham, and Zendaya and Celine Dion's stylist Law Roach as judges.

Roach has had quite a year so far. He recently started styling Dion, who has been ruling the street-style scene, and launched a fashion-forward, affordable shoe line called Daya with Zendaya.

Graham also has much to celebrate this year. The body-positive advocate was featured on Forbes' 30 Under 30 list, landed several major magazine covers (Cosmopolitan, MaximSports Illustrated), released her swimwear collaboration with Swimsuitsforall and starred in her first-ever music video for DNCE's "Toothbrush."

Ora and Elliott are no strangers to the fashion and beauty world, either. Ora, who is styled by Jason Rembert, has collaborated with Adidas and serves as an ambassador of Rimmel London. Elliott was the mastermind behind the social content strategy of Kim Kardashian's Paper magazine cover that was designed to #breaktheinternet.

A premiere date has yet to be announced for the 23rd season of America's Next Top Model.

Though Tyra Banks won't be back as the show's host, she will exec produce the new version of the reality competition show with original exec producer Ken Mok. You'll be missed, Tyra (and TYRA MAIL!).
