The new season of “Project Runway All Stars” is getting a visit from rock royalty: Legendary Blondie singer Debbie Harry will appear on the Lifetime competition as the first guest judge of Season 3. The returning designers will compete to create a look that honors Harry’s musical legacy, taking inspiration from her music and punk-rock aesthetic.
Harry’s visit coincides with the 40th anniversary of Blondie in 2014, but celebrations are kicking off early as Harry introduces the new track “Sugar on the Side,” which will be released on the “PRAS” Twitter account during the episode. Blondie was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006.
The new season of “PR: AS” will include three winners who are returning to defend their titles — Jeffrey Sebelia, Season 3, Irina Shabayeva, Season 6, and Seth Aaron Henderson, Season 7. Their competitors come from Seasons 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, and 11. The new “PRAS” host is Alyssa Milano, who will be joined by Zanna Roberts Rassi, senior fashion editor at Marie Claire magazine, and returning judges Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman.
“Project Runway All Stars” Season 3 premieres Thursday (Oct. 24) at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
