Fashion reality show alumni often fall into two categories: those who make it in the industry and those who don’t. Fashion Star winner Kara Laricks falls into the former, and this afternoon, she showed her spring 2013 collection in an industrial space inside Pier 57.
In a surprising turn of events, it’s been revealed that the second season of Fashion Star will go on without two of its biggest names.
The first episode of NBC’s Fashion Star aired last night and if today’s sales are anything to go by, it’s off to a great start. Not only did all three retailers — Saks, Macy’s, and H&M, purchase items from the designers, but at least one of the winning looks sold out in under an hour.
Last night, before setting off for our second Black Keys concert in as many days, we stopped by Anna Wintour‘s least favorite restaurant, Miss Lily’s, for some pre-dinner drinks celebrating tonight’s premiere of NBC’s fashion-reality-competition show, Fashion Star. While there, we talked to Glamour editor in chief Cindi Leive and celeb-cum-designer Nicole Richie about their experiences on the show.
Note to future reality show contestants: insulting a judge is never a good idea. An even worse idea? Insulting a judge because she’s female and doesn’t “understand what’s going on what right now” in menswear.
Just because she’s pregnant does’t mean Jessica Simpson is going to swaddle around in muumuus and oversize sweaters. In fact, the singer/designer/actress/business lady says that she hasn’t bought a single piece of maternity clothing during her pregnancy — and she doesn’t intend to.
Ever since it was first announced, NBC’s Fashion Star has faced consistent comparisons to that other fashion designer competition show, Project Runway. But while the general premise is the same, host Elle Macpherson has maintained that “Fashion Star” was focusing much more on mass appeal than artistic design — and nothing makes that more clear than the choice of judges.
Nicole Richie is heading back to reality TV But don’t worry, the former Simple Life star will not be teaming up with frenemy Paris Hilton to tour middle America again. Instead, she’ll be mentoring contestants on the upcoming NBC reality show Fashion Star.
From what we’ve learned about NBC’s new fashion reality show, Fashion Star, the one that’s supposed to be entirely different from Project Runway, the entire thing sounds just like Project Runway. A boring version of Project Runway, but Project Runway nonetheless.
NBC revealed today that speculation about its new fashion reality show wasn’t all that speculative. Ben Silverman, who brought us The Biggest Loser and The Office, says the network is moving forward with Fashion Star, a Project Runway-esque show that will try to find the next big designer dying to break out of obscurity.
