When Lifetime said that a set of all-star designers will compete in the special edition of "Project Runway", it didn't mention the plan to have a big star coming as a guest. Considered as a fashion icon, Nicole Kidman reportedly will pay the show a visit to help the contestants with their challenges.
"Project Runway: All Star Challenge" is developed as a warm-up episode for the show's season 6 which premiere has long been denied from being aired. Designers who had competed in the previous seasons are brought back to get a second shot at winning $100,000 cash prize. There is no elaborate detail about what Nicole will do there other than the report from Access Hollywood that she will "help set up one of the challenges" for the eight designers.
"Project Runway: All-Star Challenge" will premiere Thursday, August 20, at 8/7c. The sixth season airs immediately after, followed by a companion series called "Models of the Runway" that "give fans a behind-the-scenes look at the reality competition - from the models' perspective."
