Breaking News: The Cast of Project Runway All Stars Has Been Announced!

We interrupt this very fashionable Monday to let you know that the cast of Project Runway All Stars has been announced! For those of us who have watched the Emmy-nominated show for seasons, THIS is the one that brings back some of the most talented (and controversial) talents from seasons past!

The show will be hosted by fashion designing legend Isaac Mizrahi and fashion powerhouse designer Georgina Chapman of Marchesa. In Heidi’s place will be supermodel Angela Lindvall and serving in the mentor role will be Marie Claire Editor-in-Chief (and all-around cool woman extraordinaire) Joanna Coles. Contestants returning will be:

  • Austin Scarlett (New York) – Season One, Fourth Place
  • Kara Janx (New York) – Season Two, Fourth Place
  • Elisa Jimenez (New York) – Season Four, 10th Place
  • Rami Kashou (Los Angeles) – Season Four, Runner-up
  • Sweet P/Kathleen Vaughn (Pasadena, CA) – Season Four, Fifth Place
  • Jerell Scott (New York) – Season Five, Fourth Place
  • Kenley Collins (Brooklyn) – Season Five, Second Runner-up
  • Gordana Gehlhausen (San Diego) – Season Six, Fourth Place
  • Anthony Williams (Atlanta) – Season Seven, Fifth Place
  • Mila Hermanovski (Los Angeles) – Season Seven, Second Runner-up
  • April Johnston (Savannah, Georgia) – Season Eight, Fifth Place
  • Michael Costello (Palm Springs) – Season Eight, Fourth Place
  • Mondo Guerra (Denver) – Season Eight, Runner-up
The prizes for the season are evidently the most lucrative in PR history, with a designer suite in Neiman Marcus stores and on Neiman Marcus online, $100,000 cash from L’Oreal Paris, $100,000 in technology from Intel and HP to advance their business, a spread in Marie Claire AND a guest editor spot in the mag for a year (I would do it just for that) and a sewing and embroidery studio provided by Brother.
Whew! Sound like fun to you? It does to me! Lifetime has evidently ordered 12 episodes of the show and will announce when it will air soon. I’ll keep you posted but do tell, will you watch Project Runway All-Stars?
