‘Project Runway’ To Return with an All-Star Edition

heidi_project_runway.jpgDo you miss the old Project Runway contestants as much as I do? Do you begrudgingly watch the new episodes and complain that they don’t sew like they did in the old days like so many old fogies when it comes to 70s rock or hipsters when it comes to, well, anything? Well, Lifetime is answering our prayers. They’re planning an actual Project Runway All-Stars series. Unlike the two-hour competition we saw in 2009, which crowned Daniel Vosvick — don’t you just love him? — as the champion of designer champions, this All-Star show will run for eight episodes.

There’s no date for the series because it’s still in the works, so we’ll have to suffer through a season of newbies this summer on Lifetime while we wait. But just the thought of casting an All-Star series is so exciting. Can we bring back scary Wendy Pepper or hipsterific Alison Kelly? Clearly, Austin Scarlett needs to get in on this action. Who knows which former contestants Lifetime will decide to bring back, but if they get the right folks, this could be an explosive, fantastic show.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
