  1. Gretchen says:

    I’m excited for the Runway All-Stars! Love that they are doing a full season and not just one episode as before. It would be fun if they did one with all the winners competing. Imagine Gretchen or Irina vs. Jeffrey and Jay :)

  2. Josh says:

    I’ll watch when Kenley is gone. What an awful, awful person she is.

  3. Sam says:

    MONDO! I hope this is sweet redemption for the Gretchen fiasco. I also hope there will be another original season by late 2011. This won’t get in the way of season 10, will it?

  4. Laurel says:

    I have always wanted Bravo to do a Project Runway All Stars !
    I wish that they could of used the original Judges along with Tim Gunn as mentor.
    What’s Project Runway with out TIM GUNN !?
    And I really don’t like Mizrahi all that much.

  5. Roxie says:

    I will watch Project Runway All-Stars but I don’t really like how they are having a new host, mentor and judges. It won’t really feel like Project Runway to me without Heidi and Tim. But I am excited to see these contestants competing again, since I liked many of them. Kenley doesn’t bother me as much as she does other people. I actually hated Gretchen from Series 8 more than I hated her, and unlike Gretchen, I think that Kenley actually has some designing talent. But I know they are also bringing her back in hopes that she will create drama. It will be interesting to see how her and Michael Costello interact with everyone else and if they are being drama queens. It is also tough to call who will win since many of these designers are very talented. I think Austin and Mondo will go far, since I think they are two of the strongest designers on this list, but it’s hard to tell what will happen with everyone else. I am mostly happy with the contestants, but I would have liked to have seen Santino Rice, Laura Bennett and Chris March come back for this competition as well. I do realize though that maybe they weren’t available or were uninterested.

  6. Louie says:

    Isaac Mizrahi?
    Does this mean that Bravo’s “Fashion House” is a complete wash-out now (like it wasn’t before)?

  7. Juan says:

    I am glad that Lifetime is doing a spin-off of Project Runway aptly titled Mondo Guerra’s Victory Parade.

    Oh wait, Project Runway All-Stars?
    With Kenley, Gordana,… Elisa… Austin..?
    What about Chris March or Emilio Sosa? Or anyone from Season 3 (the best season in my opinion)Laura? Kayne? Anyone?

  8. raelee514 says:

    No Tim Gunn on Project Runaway All Stars? That feels wrong. Sniffle.

    But yay Austin and Mondo, that is awesome. Also I love Sweet Pea.

  9. Jenny says:

    Interesting mix of designers. But seriously how is going to be Project Runway without Tim and Heidi. Don’t mind no Nina or Michael. Still not over the Gretchen fiasco and the last episode. Time for a change there. I like that is does contain no winners. But would love to see a mini season of just winners.

  10. Not Daniel says:

    No Tim Gunn = no sale

  11. these comments are so lame says:

    seriously… have any of you seen the international versions? No Tim or Heidi on those and they are just as good. And besides, they are archtypes who are not impossible to replace.
