Another new host for Project Runway All-Stars: Alyssa Milano

Lifetime will air a third season of Project Runway All Stars, and it has a new host yet again: Alyssa Milano, who just released the most most educational and politically aware sex tape ever.

There’s also a new mentor: Joanna Coles is out and Marie Claire’s Zanna Roberts Rassi is in. Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman return as judges, along with guests including Nick Cannon, Bar Refaeli, Abigail Breslin, Gayle King, Nate Berkus, Michael Urie, Christian Siriano, Anya Ayoung-Chee, Mondo Guerra, Anthony Ryan Auld, and Kristin Chenoweth. Also appearing in some way: Marge Simpson.

The 11 returning designers include Mychael Knight, Seth Aaron Henderson, Korto Momolu, and Jeffrey Sebelia.
