Project Runway All Stars is returning to Lifetime with some fan favorites…and not so favorites!  There will be cat suits and cat fights, mark my words.  Thirteen past designers will be back to compete for the reward that eluded them their first go-round.  Each of the nine past seasons are represented except for season 4, but the majority of players are from the more recent seasons. 

Iconic fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi returns to judge alongside the gorgeous Georgina Chapman who is the co-founder of Marchesa.  Supermodel Carolyn Murphy (who is as intelligent as she is beautiful–her bio?  Whoa!) will take over this season's hosting duties.  Joanna Coles, former editor-in-chief of Marie Claire/just named editor-in-chief of Cosmo, resumes her role as all-star mentor.  I like Joanna, but I sure do miss Tim Gunn when he's gone!

Well we are almost to the end of the road with the most ridiculous season of Project Runway ever as the final five remain! This challenge determined which designers will be designing a collection for fashion week and who will be going home to wallow in despair while STILL designing a collection for fashion week, albeit forfeiting the $100,000 grand and the Piperlime endorsement.

Eyebrows McSequins decides to start his day off right with a steaming hot cup of bitch café as he rants about how Anya doesn’t deserve to be here and calling her out on her inability to thread a sewing needle. While I don’t disagree, no one is calling McSequins out on his complete inability to edit. Oh wait…

HBIC Heidi Klum informs the designers they will be meeting the delightful, yet clearly over it, Tim Gunn on Governors Island for the details on the challenge. There, Tim informs the designers that Governors Island will serve as inspiration for a thee-look mini collection that features a variety of looks (i.e. can’t be three cocktail dresses). The designers are given 1 hour, a map, and a golf cart (is this Amazing Race or PR?) to explore the island and sketch. I kept waiting for a golf cart accident, but it didn’t happen.

Can we all have a moment for Eyebrows McSequins Palm Beach on Crack Bermuda shorts? Oooohhh…lordy. That print!

On last night’s episode of Project Runway, the designers repeated the same challenge from the week before – except this time they got to use real models – and most of the looks STILL didn’t improve! Ok, just kidding – last week they weren’t supposed to be recreating bad 70’s Halloween costumes, they just all did, incidentally. BUT last night the challenge was to look to the past. Also, I’m just gonna put this out there – the winner and the loser essentially made the same thing…

Tim Gunn meets the designers in the workroom where he is standing with Heather Archibald, Head Apparel Designer for Piperlime.com. I don’t know if you were aware, based on the fact that they repeat it over and over, but Piperlime provides all the accessories for the show. The challenge is actually to make a sophisticated seventies INSPIRED (not recreated) look. And it has to be separates. The winning design will be produced and sold on – guess where? Piperlime!

On last night’s episode of Project Runway the designers made men’s wear for up and coming rock group, The Sheepdogs. Unfortunately ¾ of the designers had never sewn or cut a pattern before, let alone made men’s wear, and the other ¼ had only one concept of rock ‘n roll and that era ended before most of them were born!

Heidi Klum meets the designers on the runway and announces: “Image is everything!” before sending them on their way to meet Tim Gunn. When they arrive, Peter Butler, consulting stylist of Garnier is there with Tim. Apparently Garnier held a contest with Rolling Stone Magazine to find the next great, unsigned band. The winning band, The Sheepdogs, will be the models for this challenge and the designers have to help this band create a new image while also keeping it true to the musicians’ style. Did I mention they are ALL men?!

It’s the eighth episode of Project Runway, and sadly I am super over this season of catty queens, annoying team challenges, lack of ingenuity, and judges who are treating this like a popularity contest instead of a design competition. But with Tim Gunn as my lighthouse, I will carry on. This week’s episode was an unconventional model challenge and some of the designers displayed the charisma of the wad of tissues they were using to wipe their crying eyes after being told they had to dress *gasp* REAL WOMEN. Ugh. Fashion is just so not about people and their weird sticky-outy appendages! Boobs are the enemy of the effete gay-kind!

The designers meet Heidi Klum on the runway where she announces there will be no models for this challenge and a parade of men troop out. The designers have a series of strokes and Eyebrows McSequins gloats about how he actually does menswear?! Ummm… do most men want to wear manks with zippers and neon stripes!?

Heidi announces there will be no more immunity going forward, but since Anya won immunity last week, she gets to choose her man-model first. Then they draw names from the button bag. Joshua chooses Joshua and Olivier expresses his displeasure about fatties – fatties are allowed to exist, but not where fashion is concerned. The designers and their men meet Tim back at the workroom, where he reveals the challenge is actually to create a look for the men’s better halves – who will be serving as the models for this challenge with the men consulting on the designs!

It’s the seventh episode of what is officially the most boring crop of Project Runway designers – fashion wise – in the history of the show. Perhaps that’s just my opinion, but I’m the writer here, so I get to give it. Sadly in this episode there was a ticking time-bomb named Joshua and cursing is just soooo unattractive to him! It also included a lot of ugly prints, a lot of neon, and a completely befuddled fashion editor who broke her stone-cold b!tch face for a few obvious glares and shocked expression.

Things began with Joshua M waking up on the bitchy side of the bed! Heidi announces there will be another team challenge and everyone groans and wonders when the horror will cease. This time the designers must work in two teams of five to produce a cohesive collection of textiles they created on the HP Intel Touchsmart Pads. Each team must have five looks and three must incorporate the custom created textiles.

It’s the sixth episode of Project Runway, and mid-competition fatigue is starting to set in, causing some of the designers to simply lose their way and become over-whelmed by the challenges to the point of losing sight of their own aesthetic. Oh, and some of these jokers, like the ones who see themselves as “judges pets” are starting to let those egos out (here’s looking at you, Viktor!)

The episode begins with a sad shot of the girls’ apartment and there are only four girls remaining in the competition. Is it me or does it always seems to be the case that the girls sputter out earlier and then in the middle the boys fall down like dominoes? Of the four women remaining, Laura lets us know she doesn’t really care for Becky. Does anyone like this poor lady? It’s looking like no, despite the fact that she seems fairly inoffensive. Over in the boys’ apartment, Anthony Ryan informs us that he and the dreaded Bert have formed a tepid understanding and now get along.

First of all let me state: I heard the complaints loud and clear about not including the winning and auf-ing designers in the title of the post. So, never again – readers – never again. However, there will be spoilers in this post, because obviously it is a recap! Do not read to the end if you like suspense! In the words of the impenetrable Tim Gunn: “Carry on.”

Heading into the fifth episode of Project Runway, the designers are faced with an unconventional theme challenge. And you know what that means – a whole lotta fugly hot messes moseying down the runway hoping to slide under the radar as “not the worst” and one or two hopefuls vying for best of the worst. This is also about the time in the season when the designers are starting to get to know each other, and therefore dislike each other, so perfect time for a TEAM CHALLENGE!
