The Project Runway All Stars judges continued their adoration of Anthony Ryan Auld last week, awarding him his fifth win. So, yeah, the Season 9 alum definitely made the finals.
Joining Anthony are Uli Herzner (Season 3) and Emilio Sosa (Season 7), who have both won two challenges this season. (Trivia: Did you notice that Emilio's model is Aminat Ayinde, who took third on America's Next Top Model Cycle 12?)
Uli got her spot after a last minute fashion battle on the runway with Joshua McKinley (Season 9). The judges had trouble figuring out which designer should head to the finals, since they had issues with both Paris-inspired couture gowns. But it seems like they were always looking for reasons to oust Joshua so the final three could be Anthony, Emilio, and Uli. Still, that's a pretty good final three, no?
We were Team Uli before All Stars even premiered, and she’s done us proud all season. Her Uli 2.0 designs are fresh and recognizable as Uli while being completely different from what she was doing back on Season 3.
(Besides, if Anya can win Season 9 for designing resort-wear similar to what Uli used to do, Uli should win All Stars for evolving her style.)
The judges love AR — who has been consistently strong, and was robbed with an early departure on Season 9 — so it's looking like All Stars is his season to lose. But anything can happen. The All Stars finale airs January 17, with Liv Tyler and Margherita Missoni as guest judges.
Who will follow Mondo Guerra as the next All Stars winner? Who do you think will win and who is your choice to win?
