Your style guy's got the scoop

It’s the finale! Will your predictions come true? Who will win Project Runway All Stars? Read on as your resident style guy takes you behind the scenes of the final episode. Ladies, grab a cocktail and strut down the runway with me.

This is it — I’ve been counting down this moment for weeks. Who will it be? My projected winner, Mondo? The fun loving, Michael? Or the uber-dramatic, Austin? His upcoming wedding dress could just take the entire competition. (Clearly, you can tell how excited I am about this episode.)

The designers had four days to complete an entire collection. While this sounds crazy to the average person, these guys are All Stars! I know they will all design something spectacular.

The episode began on judgment day. (So basically nerve-wracking from the beginning.) The guys headed straight to Gotham Hall, where they would be showing the collection, and had about two hours to put the finishing touches on their designs. My favorite part? Austin frantically running around like a chicken with his head cut off trying to finish his designs.

When Joanna went backstage as the show was going to start, you could see the look of horror on her face when Austin was still trying to finish his collection seconds before he was supposed to send models down the runway. However, the best Joanna moment of the episode? When she lint rolled Mondo right before the show. Awkward? Yes. Funny? Definitely yes.

Runway reactions

Here it is! The final runway show!

Austin's Project Runway All Stars finale look

Austin

His collection was called "Austin Scarlett." (Clever…) The designs were the essence of feminine power with leather jumpsuits, pink blouses, floor-length dresses and a stunning and dramatic wedding gown. The model literally looked like she was wearing a flower with that final look. Really beautiful.

Mondo's Project Runway All Stars finale look

Mondo

This show screamed eclectic '60s mod chic with graphics, mini dresses, high-waisted pants, gray tops and black and white dresses. His finale dress was mind-blowing with the red and black floor-length metallic gown. Die for it.

Michael's Project Runway All Stars finale look

Michael

Safari heaven. I felt like I was in a jungle and then off to Miami with the exotic prints, tight dresses, shorts, flowy tops and the finale white, Grecian gown.

The winner of Project Runway All Stars? Mondo! Woohoo! Just as I predicted! His consistency, attention to detail and stunning designs make him a true All Star.

Thanks for joining me on this fabulous runway experience!

Xo,

Your Resident Style Guy
