Runway Rundown: The Finale Runway Looks From Season 2 Of Project Runway All Stars!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It’s been almost a week since the season finale of Project Runway All Stars, where Season 9 designer & fan favorite, Anthony Ryan Auld, was crowned the winner, ahead of Uli Herzner & Emilio Sosa. Even though Uli was my personal favorite, I was very happy to see Anthony Ryan receive the accolade that he deserves. Courtesy of My Lifetime, I’m sharing a gallery of the final runway, featuring Anthony Ryan’s “Fine Line” looks first, followed by Emilio’s “Urban Plantation,” & lastly with Uli’s “Winter Wonderland.” This was one of the most exciting episodes of the season & I loved watching judges model Carolyn Murphy, Marchesa co-founder & designer Georgina Chapman, & American icon Isaac Mizrahi, sit with guest judges actress Liv Tyler & Missoni heir, Margherita Missoni.

Watch This Style: Project Runway All Stars Season 2: Graffiti Chic Runway Looks!

After season 10 of Project Runway ended, it only took a week to quell my creative competition show juices for when the second season of Project Runway All Stars returned & I’ve been happy to see some old favorites (Uli HerznerAnthony Ryan Auld) return to the workroom to reclaim victory.  Last week’s episode 3, “Up Your Aerosol” aired & I found myself excited to see the designers working with graffiti artists to create their own prints & designs looks accordingly.  Having worked in the boroughs of New York & seen the graffiti-ridden streets of Italy, I was interested in seeing the two art forms collide on te runway.

The winning look belonged to Emilio Sosa, & unfortunately, Suede‘s dotted disaster sent him home.  For more angles & closeup details on these looks, head over to My Lifetime. Check out the images above to see the designers’ handiwork & share which look is your favorite.  Which designer are you following this season? Happy Styling!

Cover Craze: Single Lady Katie Holmes Sizzles on Elle!

The gossip columns were on overload this past week when actress Katie Holmes announced to the public that she was divorcing husband of five years, Tom Cruise.  However, it’s clear that the world is on Katie’s side, especially since she looks better than ever on the August 2012 cover of Elle & isn’t letting anyone or anything get in the way of her independence. 

That’s to Facebook updates, I learned that the Dawson’s Creek star even made an appearance as a guest judge during a taping last week for the latest season of Project Runway: All Stars. I haven’t received my issue of this magazine yet, but when I saw these images circulating online- clad with blunt bangs, menswear-inspiration, & the long-missed glitz & glamour that the star hasn’t revealed in a long time- I knew I had to share them with readers.  What do you think of this next chapter for Katie? Are you for or against the split?

Watch This Style: Project Runway: All Stars Promo, Starring Mondo Guerra!

For those of you who don’t watch Project Runway– first of all, shame on you & secondly, I am super psyched about the latest installment of the show, featuring an all-star competition.  I was very disappointed when Mondo Guerra, Season 8 finalist, didn’t win, but at least we can seem him design again on the new Project Runway: All Stars, starting on January 5th on Lifetime.

This is a short promo ad that I found on YouTube. Aside from winner Leanne Marshall from Season 5 & of course the hilarious combination of Christian Siriano & Chris March from Season 4, Mondo is one of my favorite designers.  Also, I included the runway show from Mondo’s final collection during Season 8, full of bold prints, playful color, & sassy style! Happy Holidays & Happy Styling!
