Jessica Simpson has said that serving as a mentor on NBC’s Fashion Star is a “dream come true”.
The singer, actress and designer will mentor alongside Nicole Richie and John Varvatos in the Elle Macpherson-produced competition, which sees 14 designers hoping to land a multi-million dollar prize to launch their designs at one of America’s top retailers.
Simpson said: “To work with these designers one on one and bring out the best in them is a dream come true for me. I’m here to make people believe in themselves or if they’re a little too confident, bring them down a bit!
“I just want to be able to give them the best advice that I have.”
Watch Jessica Simpson talk about Fashion Star below:
Each episode of Fashion Star will begin with a fashion show based around a weekly challenge, where the retailers will be able to bid on designs that they want to buy and exclusively carry in their stores.
Designers who do not sell any designs that week could face elimination, although the celebrity mentors will have the chance to save one designer.
Viewers will be able to buy the winning designs as soon as each episode ends.
Fashion Star premieres Tuesday, February 13 at 9.30/8.30c on NBC
