Anthony Williams was crowned the winner of Project Runway All Stars' sixth season during Thursday night's finale on Lifetime.

Anthony, a Birmingham, AL native who currently resides in Atlanta, GA, defeated fellow designers Stanley Hudson and Fabio Costa for the win.

Anthony, known for his glamorous designs and charming personality, made the biggest impression on Project Runway All Stars judges Alyssa Milano, Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman, as well as guest judges Catherine Zeta-Jones and Zac Posen during the finale.

For winning the latest season of Project Runway All Stars, Anthony will receive $100,000; a fashion spread in Marie Claire magazine and a position as contributing editor for one year; a complete sewing studio; a trip to London, England; and skincare, makeup, accessories and styling services to enhance his next collection.

Before competing on Season 6 of All Stars, Anthony found fame when he chose to appear on Season 7 of Project Runway. After finishing in fifth place that season, he returned for Season 1 of Project Runway All Stars and placed ninth.

The third time was clearly the charm for Anthony, who participated in his first finale of the franchise -- and created his first full collection -- for Season 6, which he remarkably ended up winning.

Anthony believes his greatest strengths as a designer are his precision and flawless execution, and he told Lifetime before competing on this season, "My aesthetic has changed since I made a choice to get from behind the sewing machine and take my inspiration in from the world around me."

In the finale, Anthony, Stanley and Fabio only had five days to create and execute a seven-piece collection designed to make their own mark in American fashion history.

The designers were instructed to utilize their own signature technique and channel a visit to the Smithsonian National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C. into their creative designs.

Anthony's winning collection was a blend of dramatic and classic pieces, both glamorous yet edgy. Anthony said he came up with the idea for his collection by daydreaming about what would happen if "Audrey Hepburn lived long enough to become Rihanna."

The contestants this season were guided and mentored by Marie Claire Editor-in-Chief Anne Fulenwider.
