Model Tyson Beckford, above, supported designer and TV personality Whitney Port at her first solo show on Wednesday at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

The two will be co-judging the upcoming season of the competitive television series "Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model."

Fashion photographer, former model and "America's Next Top Model" judge Nigel Barker was also in attendance. Fashion public relations guru Kelly Cutrone, whose company People's Revolution was producing the show, will join Barker on the American version of the show next season.

Barker and Beckford, who is best-known for his work with Ralph Lauren, are no strangers to Fashion Week.

"I love the energy," Beckford said. "It's a chance to see new designers, new models, everyone's trying to make a name for themselves. Thats the exciting part."

As for his own wardrobe, the heartthrob is all about accessories.

He listed scarves, motorcycle jackets, athletic footwear, watches and belts among the top items found in his closet.
