Fear not, "Project Runway" fans. Should you suffer from withdrawals once Christopher wins this season (hopefully), Lifetime has you covered with another round of all-stars looking for their second shot at the being the best. The cast list has been announced, and it appears that a lot of strong personalities will be on hand to hopefully spice up the drama in the workroom, including someone that many have been hoping to see since the all-stars show was first introduced. Here is a look at some of the more promising additions.
Wendy Pepper (Season 1)The original villain from Season 1, Pepper was the person everyone loved to hate. She also caused plenty of outrage when she won the "Nancy O' Dell" challenge and moved on to Fashion Week over Austin Scarlett. Even if she has changed, the other designers better watch their back with this one.
Andrae Gonzalo (Seaon 2)This certainly will answer "Where's Andrae?" Sorry, we just had to. In any case, that one moment is synonymous with the show, but it would be nice to see Andrae rise above it and turn out some fantastic work.
Ivy Higa (Season 8)Though a competent designer, Ivy Higa will probably be remembered for picking on poor Michael Costello, who turned out more winning and memorable designs than she did. In fact, if she had not been so preoccupied with his stuff, she might have won a few more of her own. It will be interesting to see if Ivy will bring that same amount of harshness, or if she has mellowed out and will instead focus on creating fabulous clothes, which she is fully capable of.
Cassanova (Season 8)Though not the best designer in the world (his taste was often questionable), Season 8's Cassanova was certainly fun to watch. This time we hope he brings a more skilled eye to his designs, but to be quite honest, we just hope to hear him say "exactly" a few more times.
Joshua McKinley (Season 9)Though talented, McKinley could also be known as "Wendy Pepper-lite." Much like Ivy, if McKinley can reign in some of his trademark snark (though not too much, we hope) and focus on creating some great clothes, he might just end up winning the whole thing.
Here is the complete list of all-stars returning to "Project Runway": Wendy Pepper (Season 1); Andrae Gonzalo (Season 2); Uli Herzner and Kayne Gillaspie (Season 3); Suede Baum (Season 5); Althea Harper (Season 6); Emilio Sosa (Season 7); Ivy Higa, Cassanova, and Peach Carr (Season 8); and Laura Kathleen, Joshua McKinley, and Anthony Ryan Auld (Season 9).
