Project Runway All Stars - Who Are You Rooting For?

Thirteen veteran designers, who were sent home early from their seasons of Project Runway, faced off on Thursday's premiere of Project Runway: All Stars, hoping for a chance to win a prize package worth nearly $500,000.

For their first challenge, the all-stars were each given $100 to shop at a 99-cent store and had to compile an outfit from their purchases.

In the top were season 5's Jerell Scott, who used scarves and placemats to make a dress, and season 8 runner-up Mondo Guerra, who opted for trash bags and electrical tape.

But judges Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman were most impressed with season 4 runner-up Rami Kashou's dress, which was constructed from laundry bags, Christmas tinsel and other household materials. He won the first round of competition.

Season 4's Kathleen "Sweet P" Vaughn, who used washcloths for her design, and Season 6's Gordana Gehlhausen, whose look was criticized for being unfocused, found themselves in the bottom. But the first all-star sent home was Rami's castmate, Elisa Jimenez, who gave a rambling explanation of her ensemble.

Now that only 12 all-stars remain, for whom are you rooting? Sound off in the comments below.
