Project Runway: All Stars Season 2 — Meet the 13 Designers Cast
Will Wendy Pepper change her strategy from evil to … less evil? Will Joshua McKinley tell someone new to take a nap? Will Suede Baum still speak in third person? Will Andrae Gonzalo and Tim Gunn continue having fake date nights at Red Lobster?
We may never know about that last one, but Andrae and company (minus Tim, sob!) are in the new cast of Project Runway: All Stars Season 2, which will premiere Thursday, October 25 on Lifetime, the week after the Project Runway Season 10 finale.
Supermodel Carolyn Murphy will replace Angela Lindvall as host. Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman will return as judges, with Joanna Coles continuing as mentor/official cross between David Bowie and Tilda Swinton.
The celebrity guest judges will include Katie Holmes — who shot her stint just a couple of days after the news broke that she had filed for divorce from Tom Cruise — plus Kylie Minogue, Stacy Keibler, Liv Tyler, Gretchen Mol, Diane von Furstenberg, Jason Wu, Margherita Missoni, Charlotte Ronson, Rafe Totengco, Elie Tahari, Tavi Gevinson and cameo appearances by Karl Lagerfeld and the House of Valentino.
According to a Lifetime press release, the winner of All Stars Season 2 will have the chance to create a custom-branded capsule collection for Nine West, and will be awarded a cash prize of $150,000, a sewing and embroidery studio provided by Brother Sewing and Embroidery, an all-expenses paid trip around the world to attend fashion weeks in cities such as Paris, London, Milan and Tokyo courtesy of Laura Mercier and a technology suite/office space from HP and Intel to bring the designer’s creativity to life and run his or her business. The winner will also receive a fashion spread in Marie Claire magazine and a position with the publication as Contributing Editor for one year.
Mondo Guerra won Season 1. Who will win All Stars Season 2? That one’s less obvious, but we’ll guess … Uli! The Season 3 runner-up deserves more love. Who will win PR Season 10? For that one, we’ll guess Christopher Palu.
