Candids: Nobu, June 29 2011

Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson ducked into their car after a date at Nobu in LA last night. The twosome are hitting up the hot spots this week, including an evening at the Ivy on the Shore on Tuesday. Jessica is two weeks away from her 31st birthday, so we’ll see if she has another big adventure planned after last year’s luxurious European yacht trip to celebrate the big 3-0. That vacation was one of her first public outings with Eric, and it’s been a landmark year for the couple who are currently planning their wedding. Jessica is also working on her many projects, including a return to TV with Fashion Star this Fall.

Showing off her tanned and toned legs, Jessica Simpson was spotted out and about in Santa Monica, California last night (June 28).

Joined by some friends, the 30-year-old bride-to-be hit up The Ivy At The Shore restaurant for dinner where fiancé Eric Johnson met up with her.

After the meal, Jessica hopped into an SUV limousine by mistake and had to stop the car in the middle of the road to jump out and get into Eric’s Range Rover.

NBC Names Jessica Simpson as Mentor of New Reality Competition

NBC announced today that musician, entertainer and fashion designer Jessica Simpson will serve as a celebrity mentor on “Fashion Star,” the new reality competition series that will search for the next big brand in fashion with host Elle Macpherson, world-famous super-model icon, actress and businesswoman.

The announcement was made today by Paul Telegdy, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, NBC and Universal Media Studios.

“NBC is delighted to work with singer, designer, actress and pop culture icon Jessica Simpson,” said Telegdy. “With an almost billion dollar lifestyle brand under her belt she is sure to be an excellent mentor to our up-and-coming designers.”

“Jessica Simpson has built an incredible fashion business and is a perfect mentor to our aspiring designers,” said Ben Silverman, CEO and founder of Electus. “She will complement the buyers, Elle Macpherson and amazing format.”

Multi-media studio Electus, an operating business of IAC (Nasdaq: IACI), 5X5 Media and The Magical Elves (Emmy Award winners for “Top Chef” and the original producers of “Project Runway”) are the producers of “Fashion Star.” The series is designed not only to groom and discover America’s next popular brand, but through an exciting new format twist, it will allow viewers at home to buy the winning designs each week. The show will target real-time consumer feedback and interactivity and will span all categories of fashion from suits and dresses to lingerie, denim, bathing suits, accessories and more.

Simpson has taken the music, entertainment and fashion industries by storm. She has seven Billboard Top 40 hits and has starred in such feature films as “The Dukes of Hazzard,” “Employee of the Month” and “Blonde Ambition.” Simpson has also starred in the iconic hit reality series “Newlyweds” for MTV and her own VH1 docu-series, “The Price of Beauty.” She has guest-starred in such series as “Entourage” and “That ’70s Show.” In addition, Simpson has created a fashion empire with her Jessica Simpson Collection. The eponymous line boasts 22 product categories including shoes, handbags, jewelry, sunglasses and perfume.

The series will give 14 unknown designers the chance to win a multi-million dollar contract to launch their lines in three of America’s largest retailers. Each week, the show will kick off with an exhilarating fashion show unlike anything seen before featuring musical performances, dancers, and models in front of a live studio audience. Every fashion show will be built around a weekly challenge that is designed to further develop and expand the designer’s brand.

Buyers from each of the retailers will serve as the judges, making on-the-spot decisions as they bid against each other, dipping into their own wallets to purchase the work of these up-and-coming designers each week. These items will shape the future of their respective stores and create the next big trends for consumers. At the end of each episode, America will have the chance to immediately purchase the winning designs showcased on the episode that week. What viewers see on TV that night will be on the streets and in stores the very next day. With just a single trip down the runway, “Fashion Star” will change the lives and fortunes of these aspiring designers forever.

The show is hosted and executive-produced by one of the world’s most famous fashion icons, Macpherson. She best embodies the role of what it means to be a smart, savvy and creative business woman as she is also the founder of a series of internationally successful, U.K.-based business ventures including Elle Macpherson Intimates, a lingerie line celebrating its 20th year, and “The Body”, a line of skin-care products. The Australian-born Macpherson became one of the world’s top fashion models and was named as one of People magazine’s “Most Beautiful People.”

Fashion designers featured on the show will include everyone from the stay-at-home mom who makes her own clothes to sell at the local flea market, to the recent Parsons School of Design graduate who just landed his or her first job at Marc Jacobs. All the contestants will be put to the test to see how they react in a variety of real-world scenarios to determine who has the vision and desire to build a fashion empire and achieve their dream. With top experts as their guides and mentors throughout the process, designers will have to be as adept in the business of fashion as they are in their creativity as it’s up to them to make their brand a national reality.

In the end, one designer will successfully combine fashion and business to become the next “Fashion Star” and will receive the prize of a lifetime – an exclusive capsule line in each of the three largest retailers in the country.

“Fashion Star” is created by E.J. Johnston and James Deutch of the Global Fashion Association, Rick Ringbakk of Emmy Award-winning 5×5 Media (“Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution”) and Ben Silverman (“The Biggest Loser,” “The Office,” “The Tudors”).

The show is executive-produced by Silverman of Electus, Jane Lipsitz & Dan Cutforth of The Magical Elves, Ringbakk of 5×5 Media (a full-service production company in an overall production and distribution agreement within the Electus studio system), Macpherson, and Johnston & Deutch of Global Fashion Association. Electus/Engine Distribution will retain all international distribution rights.

  • Jessica Simpson joins NBC’s ‘Fashion Star’

    Jessica Simpson is taking on the role of mentor to aspiring designers for a new NBC reality series. The network said Monday that Simpson will help guide contestants in the series “Fashion Star” as they compete for a multimillion-dollar contract to launch their own brand.

    Elle McPherson will host the show, which NBC promises to be a “true spectacle” taped in front of a studio audience and featuring music, dancers and models along with weekly challenges for the contestants. Simpson, 30, (“The Dukes of Hazzard,” TV’s “The Price of Beauty”) is a fashion mogul as well as entertainer, with a line that carries her name and includes 22 product categories.

    “NBC is delighted to work with singer, designer, actress and pop culture icon Jessica Simpson,” said Paul Telegdy, NBC and Universal Media Studios executive vice president. “With an almost billion-dollar lifestyle brand under her belt she is sure to be an excellent mentor to our up-and-coming designers.”

    The contestant who best combines fashion and business gets a contract to launch a line with three major retailers, which are yet to be announced. Buyers from each chain will serve as judges, keeping contestants in the competition by buying their designs.

    Viewers won’t have to wait to shop for what they see: Each week’s winning design in categories ranging from suits to lingerie to accessories will be available for immediate online purchase.

    Producers of “Fashion Star” include former NBC executive Ben Silverman, and Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz of Magical Elves, original producers of “Project Runway.”

    “Project Runway,” hosted by Heidi Klum, was a hit for NBC Universal’s Bravo channel before a legal clash ended with the series moving to Lifetime.

    The debut date for “Fashion Star” was not announced.

  • Jessica Cuddles Up to Eric as They Return Home to LA

    Jessica Simpson stuck close to her fiancé, Eric Johnson, yesterday when they arrived at LAX. The duo were fresh off a weekend mingling with some of his old friends at his 10-year college reunion at Yale. The gathering brought out Eric’s classmate Cash Warren, who attended with his wife, Jessica Alba, and their daughter Honor. The two Jessicas got decked out to see the sights of New Haven, CT, which included a playing field for Simpson and her former football star man Eric. Their trip to Connecticut came after a few days in NYC. Jessica and Eric were in the Big Apple with her sister Ashlee, starting to work on their upcoming fashion line for tweens.


    The Two Jessica’s Go East Coast Cool

    At first glance this might not seem like anything out of the ordinary. But a closer look reveals Jessica Simpson and Jessica Alba right there in the mix snapping photos all over Yale University’s campus in Connecticut.

    The unlikely pals, seen in the most unlikely of places, have their respective beaus to thank for bringing them together as both Eric Johnson and Cash Warren gradated ten years earlier and were back in town for the reunion. Jess—as in Alba—showed off her growing baby bump in a boho chic skirt and leather vest. While the other Jess plodded along in super high heeled sandals and super short red shorts.



    Looks Jessica and Eric were up to mischief on their trip to Yale!

    Anyone snuck onto the 50 yd line of the Yale Bowl recently?….I haven’t….
