PRAS Update: 1 Down 12 to Go

Episode 1 winning look
The first episode of Project Runway All Stars has come and gone. The challenges started off with a groan of distaste as the designers learned that they would be working in teams right from the get go. Their goal was to design a cohesive collection that embodied an attitude that they as a team had to choose.  

We saw Team Bold and Team Confident. Both had good and bad looks but over all team Confident won. I liked more of their looks too, but to be honest nothing really wowed me. As the judges narrowed down the top and bottom designer I made my guess at who would be in and out. And I was correct. I've gotten pretty good at the guessing game after 10 regular seasons of the runway.

My favorite under dog Anthony Ryan won the first challenge, since his look was modern but still had an element of surprise to it. I thought it was OK, but as far as the top three go, I liked Casanova's dress more. I expected that Peach would be out early. The woman is a sweetheart, but she's a still a bit out leagued by some of these other designers. Plus someone has to be first to go home. She was cheerful about it though. She'll just go continue her work designing tennis wear.

Looks I liked:
Casanova's black leather and lace dress.
Wendy's little black dress.
