I just saw the commercial for Project Runway All-Stars (and I think I might be the only person who still watches this series) and I literally went nuts seeing Austin Scarlett, Michael Costello and Mondo again. Also, for ratings and more controversial comparisons, Project Runway has also brought back Kenley Collins, who famously ripped off designs of famous brands (Alexander McQueen wedding gown anyone? Erin Fetherson painted prints?) and claimed she had no idea that "her" designs were so similar. Whatever honey, you were the Queen Copycat and therefore, deserved to get your bags packed. Wonder who's lookbooks are on the brain when designing this season. I cannot wait to see what they all bring to the table and how the stakes are higher since the competition is so great. Anyways, I will be blogging along to new episodes and hopefully this All-Star group will be worth watching, again.
Left, Alexander McQueen. Right, Kenley Collins "original" design. Yeah, ok.
Left, Balenciaga. Right, another Kenley Collins "original".
