Joanna Coles to Mentor for ‘Project Runway’ Spinoff

Joanna Coles, Editor-in-Chief of Marie Claire, will serve as a mentor to contestants on the upcoming “Project Runway” spinoff, “Project Runway All Stars.” According to People, the contestants are all people who have appeared on “Project Runway” before, but still haven’t hit it big in the fashion world.

Coles will be dishing out advice to the designers, much like Tim Gunn does for “Project Runway.” The winner of the show will see even more of Coles, because along with cash prizes, they get a spread in Marie Claire and will guest edit an issue.

Let’s hope Coles is working on a catch phrase as good as Gunn’s “Make it work,” because otherwise we might not watch. Okay, we’re probably (definitely) not going to watch it anyway, we’re just trying to be nice.
