Angela Lindvall To Host New 'Project Runway All Stars'
UPDATE: Angela Lindvall has been confirmed as host of "Project Runway All Stars," writes People.
Also at the helm will be Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman of Marchesa acting as judges, with editor-in-chief of Marie Claire Joanna Coles acting as the show's mentor à la Tim Gunn.
The "All Star" contestants have also been announced and they include Austin Scarlett, Kathleen "Sweet P" Vaughn and last season's runner-up Mondo Guerra, reports the Hollywood Reporter. The 13 contestants will compete for, among other things, a designer’s boutique in Neiman Marcus stores and a feature spread and one-year assignment as guest editor for Marie Claire.
PREVIOUSLY: After rumors circulated that "Project Runway" was saying auf wiedersehen to iconic host Heidi Klum, a new tidbit has surfaced: Angela Lindvall may take a Klum-like turn as host to the reality show's new spin-off, "Project Runway All Stars."
The confusion stems from Heidi's removal from "All Stars," which Rumorfix reported she was initially set to host. But due to salary disputes, a rep from Project Runway said, "There will be a new host and there will be new judges, which we will release later."
Later might be now, as Modelinia has reported that model Angela Lindvall may be at the helm of "All Stars."
Speculation began when the 32-year-old Victoria's Secret Angel blogged on Thursday, "Getting close to the end of my NYC trip! I'll be able to announce my project very soon."
Rumorfix also wrote on Thursday that "a new supermodel has been hired to replace" Heidi as host of the spin-off, which will include eight episodes featuring fan favorites from previous "Project Runway" seasons.
Then again, Miranda Kerr might also be in the running: the Aussie model and new mom was seen meeting with Harvey Weinstein, "Project Runway"'s executive producer.
Stay tuned...for more rumors.
