Project Runway All Stars
In fashion, you're either in or you're out. On reality TV, you're on or you're off. But, in the case of 13 Project Runway veterans, you're back for an all-star season.
Lifetime on Monday announced the show's alumni who'll again compete in the game of sewing, cutting and crying in Project Runway All Stars. The 12-episode series will feature an entirely different administrative lineup than its source show (now in its ninth season). Supermodel Angela Lindvall is taking over Heidi Klum's role as host. Marie Claire Editor-in-Chief Joanna Coles will mentor the all-stars, a la Tim Gunn. Isaac Mizrahi, who headed Bravo's The Fashion Show, will sit on the judging panel alongside fellow designer Georgina Chapman.

Unfortunately, no one from the highly entertaining third season (the show's arguable peak) could make it. And what about Andrae? What happened to Andrae?
These contestants will compete for a grand prize of a designer's boutique in select Neiman Marcus locations and on the store's website, $100,000 in "technology and office space," $100,000 in cash, a sewing and embroidery studio, a spread in and a gig as a guest editor for Marie Claire magazine.
Project Runway returns to Lifetime
Project Runway All Stars is scheduled to debut later this year. A firm premiere date wasn't announced.
