Nicole is set to be a mentor along with Jessica Simpson, rather than a judge, on NBC’s upcoming show “Fashion Star,” hosted by Australian model Elle Macpherson. “Fashion Star” will give 14 unknown designers the chance to win a multi-million dollar prize to launch their lines in three of America’s largest retailers, which sounds super exciting!
Nicole Richie is getting her own TV judging role on NBC’s upcoming “Fashion Star.” Sources said Richie, who founded clothing and accessories lines Winter Kate and House of Harlow 1960, will join show mentor Jessica Simpson and host Elle Macpherson on the program, where aspiring designers compete for a multimillion-dollar contract for their line to be carried at major retailers. The show, created by former NBC exec Ben Silverman’s development company, Electus, doesn’t have an air date yet. An NBC rep had no comment.
Nicole tweeted saying:
So excited to be a part of @NBCFashionStar and to join my fellow mentors John Varvatos and @jessicasimpson http://ow.ly/5zn7t
