NBC’s upcoming design competition Fashion Star is groundbreaking in more ways than one: the winner will receive $6 million dollars worth of orders, the clothes will be available for purchase right after an episode airs, and…the judges stay up all night to mentor the fourteen contestants? Yeah, it happened, said celebrity design mentor Nicole Richie. See what she did about losing sleep for the sake of fashion!
Jessica Simpson, John Varvatos and Nicole Richie will be mentors and judges on the upcoming show, Fashion Star, but it isn’t your average design competition where the celebrities only step in for a few minutes of commentary.
Richie testified that she logged in quite a few overtime hours while filming the episodes.
“At times we were in the design studio working all through the night,” she said to WWD.
How did she stay awake? Forget the caffeine; Richie did it the only way a true fashionista would!
“I would find myself changing [outfits] over and over again to keep my energy up and feel inspired.”
Richie is incredibly excited about the show’s unique format.
“I am looking forward to having women and men across America not only getting to know these incredibly talented designers but also getting to buy their designs,” she said of the show. “It’s something that has never been done before.”
Fashion Star launches with a special two-hour premiere on Tuesday, March 13th at 9pm!
