'Project Runway All Stars': Angela Lindvall to Host; Isaac Mizrahi, Georgina Chapman Will Serve as Judges
Marie Claire editor Joanna Coles will serve as mentor to 13 past runners-up, including fan favorites Mondo Guerra and Austin Scarlett.
Model and actress Angela Lindvall will host Lifetime’s Project Runway All Stars, with fashion designers Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman as judges and Marie Claire editor-in-chief Joanna Coles in the Tim Gunn mentor role.
All Stars was announced earlier this year along with a Project Runway accessories spinoff. Lifetime mounted the two-hour special All Star Challenge in 2009, which featured eight past designers and core Runway cast Heidi Klum, Michael Kors, Nina Garcia and Gunn.
All Stars is a series spinoff; Lifetime has ordered 12 one-hour episodes for debut later this year.
Mondo Guerra -- a fan favorite and last season’s runner-up -- and season one standout Austin Scarlett are among the 13 designers who will compete for an even bigger prize.
Guerra lost to Gretchen Jones in a controversial final vote that had Klum facing off against Garcia and Kors. Scarlett starred in his own Lifetime series last year with fellow Runway alum Santino Rice.
Additional All Stars designers are Kara Janx (season two, fourth place), Elisa Jimenez (season four, 10th place), Rami Kashou (season four, runner-up), Sweet P/Kathleen Vaughn (season four, fifth place), Jerell Scott (season five, fourth place), Kenley Collins (season five, second runner-up), Gordana Gehlhausen (season six, fourth place), Anthony Williams (season seven, fifth place), Mila Hermanovski (season seven, second runner-up), April Johnston (season eight, fifth place) and Michael Costello (season eight, fourth place).
The prize includes $100,000 in cash from L’Oreal Paris, a designer’s boutique in Neiman Marcus stores, $100,000 worth of technology and office space from HP & Intel, a feature spread and one-year assignment as guest editor for Marie Claire and a sewing and embroidery studio provided by Brother International.
