For more than 20 years Marge Simpson has worn the same outfit – strapless green dress, red pearls, and matching flats – but the animated housewife is getting all dolled up on tonight’s Project Runway All Stars.
The seven remaining contestants on the fashion reality series are tasked with creating a new frock for Marge to wear for a night out on the town with her longtime love Homer. The big reveal will happen on tonight’s All Stars and the winning design will also appear on a future episode of The Simpsons.
“Normally I have one simple fashion philosophy. Find a dress that looks good on you and wear it every day for the rest of your life,” Marge jokes before instructing the designers to create a frock in any color but green. “Also, there might be some snuggling after dinner, so Homer requests that the dress be easy enough to remove after he’s had several glasses of wine and a secret six pack of beer.”
Marge will be joined by special guests Abigail Breslin, Anthony Ryan (All Stars season 2 winner), and Alice+Olivia designer Stacey Bendet. In honor of the occasion, host Alyssa Milano, mentor Zanna Roberts Rassi, and judges Georgina Chapman and Isaac Mizrahi got the cartoon treatment. (See the photo above.)

Project Runway All Stars airs tonight at 9/8 c on Lifetime.
