Ellen: Jessica Simpson Fashion Star
Fashion mogul Jessica Simpson is taking a stand for women in her new reality series Fashion Star, which premieres March 14 2012 on NBC.
When an Australian contestant said he wouldn’t take women’s advice about men’s fashion, Jessica took him to task.
Jessica Simpson Fashion Star NBC Reality Show
The show is searching for up and coming fashion designers. Buyers from Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, and H&M can purchase the designs. If a store buys it on the show, it will be in stores the next day. That is a good idea, actually, and it’ll be interesting to see if that works out for stores and the show itself.
“It’s like unfolding a magazine and watching it,” Jessica Simpson said. The show was shot last summer, which explains why Jessica doesn’t look as pregnant as she does now.
You can see Jessica Simpson as one of the celebrity mentors, along with host Elle McPherson, on NBC’s new reality competition, Fashion Star, airing Tuesday nights on NBC.

Jessica said she has 24 categories in her fashion line and made over $1 billion in 2011. “You’ve got to be so proud that you’re able to succeed,” Ellen said.
Jessica explained the philosophy that drives her.
“It is great, because I feel like I can dress women all across the world, all shape and sizes,” she said. “We all want to look great. Everybody deserves to look great, and I’ve really been able to do that with the Jessica Simpson Collection.”
Jessica Simpson Maternity & Baby Lines
She hasn’t settled on the right designs for a maternity collection, but designs are in the works. There is a baby collection forthcoming as well.
