Prevously on Project Runway All Stars- Season 2, Episode 1

Previously on Project Runway All Stars, several designers from past seasons returned to New York City in order to battle it out to become the #1 Season 2 all star designer and walk away with fabulous prizes- including a spread in "Marie Claire" magazine, the position as a contributing editor at the title for one year, an all-expense paid trip to Fashion Weeks around the world, a HP Intel technology suite for one year, a complete Brothers sewing studio and $150,000 in cash. This year the designers are:

Wendy "freaking" Pepper (season one, second runner up)
Andrae Gonzolo (season two)
Uli Herzner (season three, first runner up)
Kayne Gillaspie (season three)
Suede (season five)
Althea Harper (season six, first runner up)
Emilio Sosa (season seven, first runner up)
Peach Carr (season eight)
Cassanova (season eight)
Ivy Higa (season eight)
Anthony Ryan Auld (season nine)
Laura Kathleen (season nine)
Joshua McKinley (season nine, first runner up)

First the designers first challenge, the designers were split up into two teams and each team had to pick an attitude to base their group collections on. There is no immunity in the all stars season, and one designer from the winning collection would be the winner, and a designer from the loosing collection would be out. Lets take a look at their designs:

Team Confident consisted of Wendy, Uli, Kayne, Althea, Ivy and Anthony Ryan and they were the clear winners of this challenge. I liked their decision to add black lace into their designs, but I felt like Wendy Pepper's dress and Kayne's outfit didn't belong. In the end, the judges were torn between awarding the win to Ivy or Anthony Ryan, but awarded the win to Anthony Ryan for his surprise lace back despite their complains on the ill fitting crotch on his pants.

Team Bold- consisted of Laura, Emilio, Joshua, Cassanova, Andrae, Suede, and Peach. Team Bold had some great ideas as evidenced by stellar looks from Laura Kathleen and Emilio, but the team was dragged down by the sum of it's lackluster looks from Andrae (what is it?), Suede (it looked very juvenile and holly-hobby) and Peach who were in the bottom. After deliberations the judges decided that although the judges loved Peach's personality, they could overlook the poor fit and construction of her dress. Peach was out.

I felt like Ivy's suit was far superior to Anthony Ryan's ill fitting pants outfit and deserved the win, but I agreed with the judges decision to kick off Peach. Based off of the first episode, I am cheering on Ivy, Emilio and Laura for the top 3. Did you catch the premiere of Project Runway All Stars? What did you think of the judges decisions? Let me know in the comments below.
