As hard as it is to get by without Heidi, Nina, and Tim, Project Runway: All Stars always helps to fill the perfectly designed hole in our hearts during breaks between Project Runway seasons. And if you’ve enjoyed the past few years of the flagship show, you’re in luck: The cast of All Stars season 4 of is heavy on designers from Runway’s past few seasons.
The most notable designers include Chris March of season 4—recently picked by EW as the best season in Runway history—Jay Sario of season 7, and two past winners: Michelle Lesniak of season 11 and Dmitry Sholokhov of season 10. Hoping for at least one win is Kate Pankoke, who is getting her third chance to prove herself on the runway; she originally appeared in season 11, then was brought back for season 12 by a fan vote. Here are the rest of the competitors, grouped by season:
Fabio Costa, Gunnar Deatherage, and Sonjia Williams
Samantha Black, Benjamin Mach, and Patricia Michaels
Helen Castillo, Justin LeBlanc, and Alexandria von Bromssen
14 designers will return for redemption when All Stars premieres Oct. 30 on Lifetime, alongside host Alyssa Milano, judges Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman, and mentor Zanna Roberts Rassi. Guest judges this season include Orange Is the New Black’s Laverne Cox, singer Nicole Scherzinger, and, er… Snooki and JWoww.
