Celebrities, Check. Fashion, Check. Multi-million dollar prize, CHECK. With all of those factors rolled into one, who wouldn’t want to check out NBC’s newest reality show, Fashion Star? Supermodel host Elle Macpherson will guide 14 unknown designers trying to make it in the cut throat world of fashion. But how can you really go wrong with mentors like Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie and John Varvatos, right? Each celebrity will serve as a mentor, as well as potentially save a designer from the chopping block if their designs aren’t sold by the end of the week.
I know you’re asking how is this different from any other fashion design show. First of all, each week starts off with a fashion show that will include musical performance, dance and models in front of a live audience. Plus, every week features a new design challenge. At the end of each episode, each designer will have a chance to sell their designs to three of the top retailers in the business. Representatives from Macy’s, H&M and Saks Fifth Avenue will be vying for their designs. And the best part about it? You can buy those same designs that you love the very next day! For all you fashionistas out there, this is the show for you. Fashion Star airs Tuesday nights at 10/9c and will be a sure fire success. Make sure to check it out!
