Calling all Project Runway super fans and lovers of fashion: style mogul Jessica Simpson is ready to debut her latest venture, a fashion-focused reality show! The show, called Fashion Star, and slated to air this fall on NBC, is a design competition that will award a multimillion dollar contract to the winner to start his or her own brand. Although three of the original producers from Project Runway are involved, Jessica’s show is different from Heidi Klum’s version. Rather than host or judge, Jess will actually mentor each fledgling designer as they navigate through tricky challenges, creative roadblocks and edge-of-their-seats elimination rounds. We absolutely adore Jessica, and can’t wait to set our DVRs to record this inevitable hit once the weather cools off! Keep reading for more details about Ms. Simpson’s latest project, and even steal a few design tips from the fashion powerhouse herself!
Now that Fashion Star is officially on the fall schedule, and with a rumored wedding date of 11/11/11, it looks like our favorite blonde bombshell has a super busy few months ahead! We couldn’t be more thrilled for Jess, since she’s been one of our biggest sources of fashion inspiration for women of all shapes and sizes for years. We love her larger-than-life Texas confidence, and her ability to use her harshest critics as fuel to run her empire. We think she’s a wonderful “girl power” role model for young women everywhere, and it doesn’t hurt that she designs (and wears!) some of the hottest heels on the market!
To inject a little Jessica-inspired style into your own wardrobe this summer, remember the cardinal rules of a blonde bombshell: balance your leggy looks with a modest top, and always wear your highest heels. Jessica manages to make Daisy Duke-like denim look fresh with platform heels, so steal a little inspiration from her wardrobe in anticipation of her upcoming hit show!
Are you as excited for Fashion Star as we are? Do you think you’ll tune in this fall?
