Ellen Degeneres Hits the Runway (PHOTOS)

No longer an American Idol judge, Ellen Degeneres added runway model to her resume Thursday night in New York City, strutting her stuff on the catwalk to close flashy designer Richie Rich’s show.

Just when the Fashion Week crowd expected Rich to emerge from backstage for a round of applause, Ellen appeared in a silvery suit and itty bitty top hat, taking a spin on the runway on her own and then once more with the designer himself.
