Watercooler: Fashion Star or Hot Mess?

Jessica Simpson, John Varvatos, Nicole Richie

Oh dear. To quote a real fashion star, that is a lot of look. And honestly, Nicole Richie deserves better. Who ever imagined you'd hear that some day?!

Last night, NBC's design competition, Fashion Star, returned for week two and once we got past the sight of Jessica Simpson's ginormous bra-monsters trying to eat their way up her neckline, we were struck by all the excessive business going on. An overly loud audience. Runway shows that look like a theme-park concert mated with a Eastern European beauty pageant. Backstage footage. Confessional interviews. Judges comments. Buyers bidding.

Fashion Star: It's Not Just About the Fashion – It's Also About the Shopping!

Nicole Richie, John Varvatos, Elle Macpherson, Jessica Simpson

At first glance, NBC's upcoming Fashion Star may sound like a knockoff of Lifetime's Project Runway and Bravo's The Fashion Show. But executive producers, including original Runway co-creator Jane Lipsitz, insist Fashion Star goes one step further.
