‘Project Runway All Stars’ poll: Who’s better, the rookies or the veterans?

Project Runway All Starsseason six divides the competition between veterans and rookies. The veterans competed on the original “Project Runway” series as well as a previous season of “All Stars.” The rookies, however, have only competed on the original series and never appeared on “All Stars” until now. One might think the veterans would have the upper hand since they have the benefit of experience, but after two weeks of competition the two groups seem evenly matched. What do you think? Scroll down to vote in our poll.

In the season premiere episode, the rookies and vets went head-to-head in a team challenge to design competing seasonal collections. The vets chose spring, leaving the rookies with the fall as their inspiration. A few of the vets were confident, even cocky, that they would win the challenge, but it didn’t work out that way. The rookies won, and Carlos Casanova was eliminated from the veterans’ team.

The rookies got off to a strong start, but in episode two, “Damsels in Distress,” the results were reversed. There were no teams this time — all the designers competed as individuals — but there was nevertheless a decisive split between the high scorers and low scorers when the competitors created distressed looks inspired by a post-apocalyptic scenario. Two of the three best designs came from veterans, including the winner Anthony Williams, while all three of the lowest scorers were rookies, with Kelly Dempsey sent home.

So the rookies and veterans have both been up one week, down another. There are 14 designers left — seven of each — so who do you think will do the best throughout the rest of the season? Will the veterans dominate from here on, or will the rookies be driven to push themselves harder? Vote below.
