About Project Runway All Stars Season 2
They’re back (again) and ready to win — with a vengeance! Thirteen talented designers from past seasons of the Emmy® Award-nominated "Project Runway" return to the workroom for another shot at being the last designer standing on the runway in the second season of Lifetime’s "Project Runway All Stars," premiering Thursday, October 25, at 9pm ET/PT. Featuring new host supermodel Carolyn Murphy, these designers will have to prove to judges Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman and mentor Joanna Coles, former Editor-in-Chief of Marie Claire that they have what it takes to win "Project Runway All Stars." The second season of the hit series will also include top name celebrity guest judges, including Katie Holmes, Kylie Minogue, Stacy Keibler, Liv Tyler and Gretchen Mol as well as respected fashion luminaries such as Diane von Furstenberg, Jason Wu, Margherita Missoni, Charlotte Ronson, Rafe Totengco and Elie Tahari plus fashion blogging sensation Tavi Gevinson and cameo appearances by Karl Lagerfeld and the House of Valentino.
The competition will be as fierce as ever, as these "Project Runway" fan favorites must once again prove they still have the talent, innovation and creativity that made them a household name. With the biggest prize package in "Runway" history, bragging rights and the chance for redemption all on the line, who will have what it takes to impress this panel of judges and finally take home fashion’s top prize?
