Jessica Simpson All Set To Find Next Fashion Star
The fashion designers on Fashion Star have to prove their mettle in the world of retails and get the thumbs up from retails giants such as MACy's, Saks Fifth Avenue and H&M. After each runway walk, the retail representatives either give an amount that they're prepared to offer, in dollars, or they say "no offer." According to NY Times, one of the highlights of the show is listening to the store's reps lending a touch of practicality to the proceedings, such as "looks good on a runway, but my customers' vision is limited by the confines of a store." Fashion Star focuses on the runway and the outcomes of the dealings with the retail heads, rather than the sewing-room dramas of Project Runway but appears to have been well-received for that difference.The necessary celebrity element of the show is provided by the presence of Nicole Richie and Jessica Simpson who, in the eyes of the NY Times, provide "on target" advice to the designers, defying the stereotype they may have cultivated for themselves as being "less than intellectual." Elle Macphesron also hosts, though she's on screen less than Richie and Simpson.
