Nicole Richie Joins Reality Show “Fashion Star” as Mentor
“Fashion Star” brings more famous names to the table.
Nicole Richie will be back on the reality tv world again, as she has been signed to join NBC’s new reality competition show “Fashion Star.”
The former “Simple Life” star will follow the footsteps of previously announced talent Jessica Simpson and Elle Macpherson—plus newly announced talent, designer John Varvatos.
29-year-old Richie will serve as mentor to the 14 contestants, who are vying for the grand prize of multimillion-dollar contracts with three major American retailers.
“NBC could not have asked for better additions to the celebrity mentors than John Varvatos, one of the most well-known menswear designers in the nation, and international style icon and creative director Nicole Richie,” said NBC exec Paul Telegdy.
He also added, “Both are trendsetters and tastemakers and their design skills and expertise will be invaluable to our contestants on the series.”
In our opinion, as a person who’s already familiar with reality shows, and also a designer herself (for the “Winter Kate” labels), Richie is very suitable for the job.
Good luck on the new gig, Nic!
