Serving as judges for the special are world renowned fashion designer Zac Posen, stylist/author June Ambrose, celebrity stylist Marni Senofonte and of course, Diddy himself.Proving anyone who joins his team should be able to withstand a fight to the fashion finish, Diddy will have the students compete in the fashion trials "Preserve The Sexy" where they will be given garments from the 1998 inaugural Sean John line and have to transform them into current ones that reflect today's style; "Dressing The Band" where they must create an outfit for one of the ladies from the Bad Boy recording group Danity Kane; and "Red Carpet Remix" where they are given a classic suit or dress and are enlisted to give the garment a major glam-up worthy of any red carpet event.Sean Combs, Peter Safran, Jacquelyn French and Brendan Sherman serve as executive producers of "If I Were King."
