NBC's long touted Fashion Star kicked off last week and let's just say that the production was....interesting. This is no Project Runway. The flashing lights, loud pop music, smoke and an American Idol-like set are just the start. With the tag line of "watch it today, wear it tomorrow", this program focuses more on wearable fashion with an an eye towards immediate retail.
Host Elle Macpherson is teamed up with celebrity mentors Jessica Simpson, John Varavatos and Nicole Richie. But the real decision makers are the the three buyers from Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy's and H&M. We're giving this show a chance and will be hosting a live party for tonight's episode. If you plan on checking it out, come join us! It's kind of frenetic, but definitely a new spin on a much overdone genre.The show starts at 10:00 p.m. and we will open the party room around 9:45 p.m.
