‘Project Runway All Stars’ poll results: Stanley Hudson deserves to win season 6, according to fans
The final three contestants in season six of “Project Runway All Stars” are pretty evenly matched. Fabio Costa, Stanley Hudson and Anthony Williams all won multiple design challenges over the course of the season. And they all received more high scores than low scores from the judges. But who deserves to win? We polled “Runway” fans, and though it was a close call, Hudson is our readers’ choice to take home the title. Scroll down for our complete results.

Hudson was picked by a leading 42% of respondents, which is impressive given that his journey almost ended in episode two, “Damsels in Distress,” in which he finished in the judges’ bottom two. Kelly Dempsey went home instead that week, so who knows — maybe she would have ended up in the finale if she were the one who had been spared at that pivotal moment.

Given that early struggle, we weren’t

‘Project Runway All Stars’ finalist Stanley Hudson on ‘the pressure to stand out’ & what he should have done differently [Exclusive Interview]
“Project Runway All Stars” ends its sixth season on Thursday, April 5, with Stanley Hudson among the final three contestants alongside Fabio Costa and Anthony Williams. Hudson previously competed in season 11 of the original “Project Runway” series in 2013, finishing third. But that was an all-teams season, so his stint on “All Stars” this year was his first time competing on his own. Going solo has worked out pretty well for him, though: he won three design challenges over the course of the season, more than any other contestant. So in anticipation of the finale, we asked him to reflect on the season, how he rebounded after a close brush with elimination early on, and what, if anything, he would do differently if he had the chance. Read our exclusive interview below.

‘Project Runway All Stars’ elimination predictions: Will Ken Laurence go home in episode 12 right after winning a challenge?
You’d think winning a design challenge on “Project Runway All Stars” would be a good thing, but it might also be the kiss of death in the late episodes of season six. Edmond Newton won episode 10, “Rock Your Face Off,” only to be eliminated the very next week in episode 11, “Nina’s Crushing It.” Will the same fate befall Ken Laurence? He won the “Crushing It” challenge, but now he’s predicted for elimination in episode 12, “History in the Making.”

Laurence gets leading odds of 21/20, which translates to a 48.84% chance of elimination, so really it could go either way. Those odds are based on the combined predictions of “Project Runway” fans we poll every week for their picks in our predictions center. So why would we think the judges would send him home so soon after winning his second challenge of the season (he also won “Perfect Pairings” jointly with Fabio Costa)? Well,

‘Project Runway All Stars’: Helen Castillo is the last woman standing in season 6, so can she win or will she be next to go?
Helen Castillo is the last woman standing in season six of “Project Runway All Stars.” Is there a chance she could win the whole competition, or is she doomed to be eliminated just like every other woman on the show?

The season started with 16 contestants: 9 women and 7 men. After 8 episodes the show is down to 1 woman and 6 men. Carlos Casanova was eliminated in the season premiere episode, but then the women were picked off one-by-one: Kelly Dempsey in “Damsels in Distress,” then Ari South and Melissa Fleis in “Perfect Pairings,” Candice Cuoco in “Balls Out,” Amanda Valentine in “Fashion’s New Superheroes,” Char Glover in “Thrown for a Loop by Betty Boop,” Kimberly Goldson in “A Kick in the Astro” and Merline Labissiere in “Mizrahi Madness.”

‘Project Runway All Stars’: Is Stanley Hudson the new season 6 front-runner after winning 3 design challenges?

‘Project Runway All Stars’: Is Stanley Hudson the new season 6 front-runner after winning 3 design challenges?
Early on in season six of “Project Runway All Stars” it looked like Stanley Hudson might be in trouble. In just the second challenge of the season, “Damsels in Distress,” he barely escaped elimination after landing in the judges’ bottom-two. But since then his designs have taken off. In episode eight, “Mizrahi Madness,” he won the challenge to design a colorful party look inspired by judge Isaac Mizrahi‘s work. That was his third victory, which is more than any other contestant this season so far. Is he the new front-runner to win?

Not according to our predictions. We poll “Project Runway” fans every week to let us know who they think will win the competition, who will be eliminated and more. Based on their combined forecasts Hudson has moved up significantly over the weeks, but so far only into third place where he gets 6/1 odds to win the entire competition.

‘Project Runway All Stars’ recap: What happened when the designers descended into ‘Mizrahi Madness’ [Updating Live]
After starting with 16 contestants, season 6 of “Project Runway All Stars” was down to 8 going into episode 8, “Mizrahi Madness.” So the stakes were twice as high, and the designers needed to work twice as hard to win the judges’ approval. Who won the design challenge, who was eliminated, and who do you think will win the season when all is said and done? Scroll down for our live, minute-by-minute report of episode eight as it happens.

Isaac Mizrahi is a judge on “All Stars,” but in “Madness” he was also the contestants’ inspiration. The designers had to create colorful party looks inspired by a Mizrahi exhibit, so they not only had to win his approval, they had to try to live up to his work. And joining the panel to evaluate those party designs was another legend of the fashion industry, 86-year-old supermodel Carmen Dell’Orefice.

‘Project Runway All Stars’: Anthony Williams has an advantage as the only designer left without a low score

‘Project Runway All Stars’: Anthony Williams has an advantage as the only designer left without a low score
Anthony Williams is starting to look unstoppable in season six of “Project Runway All Stars.” Based on the combined predictions of the “Runway” fans we poll every week, Williams gets leading odds of 21/20 to win the season. And since consistency is key in this design competition, it gives Williams a crucial leg up that he’s the last contestant remaining who hasn’t received a single low score from the judges.

Going into the most recent episode, “A Kick in the Astro,” Williams hadn’t designed a single look that put him in the judges’ bottom three, and neither had his rivals Joshua McKinley, Fabio Costa or Kimberly Goldson. But that avant garde challenge changed that completely. Goldson was eliminated, while McKinley and Costa joined her among the judges’ least favorite looks. And not only did Williams avoid the judges’ ire, he also got high marks for the challenge. That

‘Project Runway All Stars’ recap: An avant garde challenge gave the designers ‘A Kick in the Astro’ [Updating Live]
Two weeks after the elimination of Char Glover from “Project Runway All Stars” in the unique, cartoon-inspired challenge “Thrown for a Loop by Betty Boop,” the fashion design spin-off returned with its seventh episode of season six, “A Kick in the Astro.” And if the designers thought their distressed challenge and unconventional-materials challenge were tough, this time around they had to go for broke and unleash their unbridled creativity in an avant garde challenge judged by guest stars RuPaul Charles and Jesse Tyler Ferguson. So who thought outside of the box and who got, well, a swift kick in the astro? Scroll down for our complete minute-by-minute recap.

There were nine competitors left going into this week’s “Astro”-nomical event. Of those only Fabio Costa had won multiple previous challenges: he came out on top in “Perfect Pairings” (with Ken Laurence) and “Fashion’s New Superheroes.” Merline Labissiere won

‘Project Runway All Stars’ predictions: Will Merline Labissiere be out, or out of this world in episode 7?
Merline Labissiere has had a number of close calls this season on “Project Runway All Stars” already. She actually won the very first challenge of the season, impressing the judges with her autumn design in the opening team challenge. Then she got a high score in week two, “Damsels in Distress.” But she spent three of the next four weeks in the bottom three, and two of those times she was in the bottom two and just barely avoided elimination. Will she dodge yet another bullet?

Every week we poll “Project Runway” fans for their expert predictions, and this week they still say Stanley Hudson will be on the chopping block, as they did when we checked in on our predictions this time last week. He gets leading odds of 27/10 based on those combined predictions, which translates to a 27.21% chance of being sent home. Of course, that means there’s

‘Project Runway All Stars’ recap: The designers were ‘Thrown for a Loop by Betty Boop’ [Updating Live]
“Project Runway All Stars” season six was down to its top 10 contestants in episode six, “Thrown for a Loop by Betty Boop,” a unique design challenge in which the classic cartoon character, created in the 1930s, tasked the designers with creating young, chic Hollywood looks. So who slayed, who stayed, and who was eliminated? Scroll down for our live, minute-by-minute recap of all the developments as they happened.

Last week’s episode, “Fashion’s New Superheroes,” upended the competition when it ended with the surprise elimination of Amanda Valentine. Leading into that episode Amanda had been the front-runner to win the season according to the users we’ve polled every week for their picks. On top of that she was the fifth woman in a row to get the boot in a season that has also seen the male designers win every design challenge except the first.

‘Project Runway All Stars’ elimination predictions: Will Helen Castillo be the 6th woman in a row to be sent home?
Will Helen Castillo be eliminated from “Project Runway All Stars” in episode six? That’s what the “Runway” fans we’ve polled are predicting. This is actually the second week in a row our users have forecast her downfall, but she advanced safely through episode five, “Fashion’s New Superheroes,” despite getting on the judges’ — and her fellow contestants’ — bad side the week before in “Balls Out.” If her luck does run out in tonight’s episode she’ll be the sixth woman in a row to get her walking papers.

As of this writing Castillo leads our predictions with odds of 5/4, which translates to a 44.25% chance of elimination. In addition to her low score and controversial behavior in “Balls Out,” she also had a low score in the first episode when her team of “All Stars” veterans lost the season-opening team challenge. As yet she hasn’t gotten a

‘Project Runway All Stars’: Why are the women dropping like flies in season 6?
Season six of “Project Runway All Stars” is ostensibly a battle between veterans who have appeared on “All Stars” before and rookies who are competing in this spin-off series for the first time. However, after five weeks of competition we’ve seen a different competitive split: between men and women. And it’s not looking good for the women so far. The female designers have been dropping like flies.

The season started with 16 designers overall: 7 men and 9 women. But the early results have been lopsided. Five out of six eliminations thus far have been women, while five of the six design challenge winners have been men. At least one of those eliminations was a surprise: Amanda Valentine was the front-runner to win the competition according to our racetrack odds going into “Fashion’s New Superheroes,” but she was eliminated, which 93% of our readers disagreed with. She followed Kelly Dempsey who

‘Project Runway All Stars’ winner predictions (week 6): Anthony Williams takes over the lead after Amanda’s ouster
There has been a big shakeup in our predictions for who will win season six of “Project Runway All Stars.” Every week we’ve polled fans for their picks, and based on their combined forecasts Amanda Valentine was the front-runner to take the title for the better part of a month. So it came as a shock when the judges eliminated her in the episode “Fashion’s New Superheroes,” ending her run in 11th place. Where has the momentum shifted since her ouster? To Anthony Williams, who has been consistent in impressing the judges all season.

As of this writing Williams leads our predictions with odds of 7/5. That translates to a 41.76% chance of victory, and it’s way up from last week when he placed third with 11/2 odds, or a 15% chance of winning. The season got off to a slow start for Williams when his team of veteran “All Stars

‘Project Runway All Stars’ outrage: Amanda Valentine should Not have been eliminated, according to fans
Our readers thought Amanda Valentine would go all the way in season six of “Project Runway All Stars.” She was the front-runner to win going into the February 1 episode, “Fashion’s New Superheroes,” so it took us by surprise at the end of the challenge when the judges sent her packing in 11th place. Fashion can be fickle like that, but did she really deserve to be eliminated for her design, a geometric dress in shades of pink inspired by female heroism? We asked our readers, and their answer was a resounding no.

So who deserved to get the boot? According to a whopping 77% of respondents, it should have been Merline Labissiere, who designed a square-shouldered look that was described as something out of “Star Trek” or “Star Wars.” It also featured elements the judges had already seen from her in previous challenges, so they weren’t impressed. But perhaps

‘Project Runway All Stars’ elimination predictions: Will Helen Castillo get on the judges’ bad side again in episode 5, or will Joshua McKinley?
Helen Castillo narrowly avoided elimination in episode four of “Project Runway All Stars.” Not only was her unconventional ball gown in “Balls Out” not to the judges’ liking, they also disapproved of how she handled her critiques, disparaging her fellow designers’ methods and style choices. That was the second time in four weeks that Castillo has had one of the lowest scoring looks in a design challenge, so she may have a target on her back going into episode five tonight. Our users think she’s out of second chances and will be eliminated. Do you agree?

Every week we poll “Runway” fans for their predictions, and as of this writing Castillo gets leading odds of 19/10, which translates to a 33.96% chance of elimination. But perhaps she’ll be scared straight by last week’s close call and step up with her next design. That’s what happened to Stanley Hudson.

‘Project Runway All Stars’: Helen Castillo was out of line when she dissed her fellow designers in ‘Balls Out,’ say our readers
“Project Runway All Stars” had its first big conflict of season six in episode four, “Balls Out,” when a high-pressure unconventional-materials challenge led designer Helen Castillo to lash out. While receiving negative critiques from the judges for her literal ball gown — she custom-made her own textile using a variety of balls — she decided to give some critiques of her own, commenting on the color palette and design methods of her opponents. Most of our readers we surveyed thought that was out of line. Scroll down for our complete poll results at the bottom of this post.

When we asked our readers about the incident 82% said Castillo should have just accepted the judges’ criticisms without throwing her fellow designers under the bus. The other 18% said she was right that her competitors took the easy way out by gluing their ball material to muslin forms. Did she really deserve to be in

‘Project Runway All Stars’ recap: The designers went ‘Balls Out’ for unconventional ball gowns [Updating Live]
It was only a matter of time before the designers on “Project Runway All Stars” were faced with a dreaded unconventional-materials challenge. On Thursday night, January 25, the remaining 12 competitors used a variety of balls to construct their own unique ball gowns. So who created the ballsiest looks, and who was told to take their ball and go home? Scroll down for our live, minute-by-minute recap of season six, episode four, “Balls Out.”

This week’s show followed an especially dramatic third episode, “Perfect Pairings,” in which the designers were teamed up to collaborate on looks inspired by food-and-wine pairings. There were two winners of that challenge: Fabio Costa and Ken Laurence. But that means there was also a losing team, Melissa Fleis and Ari South, and they were both sent home in a double elimination.

The team that narrowly avoided elimination was Candice Cuoco and Merline Labissiere. They struggled to
