SF's own Elena Slivnyak finished a respectable third in last night's finale of "Project Runway's All Stars." Slivnyak first participated in the original "Project Runway" in the show's 10th season, finishing 6th out of 16 (and dubbed the "fan favorite"), after which Lady Gaga wore one of her designs. Slivnyak describes herself as a "black sheep" for choosing SF over NYC for her design career. But the location doesn't appear to be holding her back. [NBC]
