Miss Piggy and Pharrell Williams are among the guest judges announced for the upcoming Project Runway: All Stars, which premieres November 3 on Lifetime. They will join previously rumoured guest judge Miranda Kerr in appearing on the new Lifetime design competition, which welcomes back 13 of the most memorable Project Runway designers for a second run. Designers Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman will judge the designs, while Marie Claire’s editor-in-chef Joanna Coles will serve as mentor and model Angela Lindvall will host.
Project Runway’s returning designers were announced back in August and include last season’s Mondo Guerra, Michael Costello and April Johnston. Austin Scarlett (season 1), Kara Janx (season 2), Elisa Jimenez (season 4), Rami Kashou (season 4), Kathleen Vaughn (season 4), Jerell Scott (season 5), Kenley Collins (season 5), Gordana Gehlhausen (season 6), Anthony Williams (season 7) and Mila Hermanovski (season 7) will also appear. Prizes on offer for the winner include an exclusive designer’s boutique in Neiman Marcus, a one-year guest editor role with Marie Claire and a feature spread in the magazine, and $100,000 from L’Oreal Paris.
Companion series Project Accessory, hosted by Molly Sims, will premiere immediately after Project Runway: All Stars. The spinoff show features 12 designers competing to create the best accessories, including jewellery, bags, belts, shoes and headpieces, in order to impress judges Kenneth Cole and InStyle’s editor Ariel Foxman. Guest judges for Project Accessory will include actress Debra Messing and Fashion Police regular Kelly Osbourne, with the prizes featuring $100,000 from eBay Fashion to start their own line and a feature spread in InStyle. Project Runway: All Stars premieres Thursday, November 3 at 9pm ET/PT on Lifetime.
