Today Show: Nicole Richie Fashion Star Review
Nicole Richie must have loved working on Fashion Star last season because she is back again in season two as one of three celebrity fashion mentors to the fashion designers competing to have their designs in big name stores around the country.
Richie said she worked with the producers and the other judges in between seasons to change a few things about the show, one such issue – being spread too thin when it comes to mentors and designers. Richie felt she didn’t have enough time with the designers last season so this season the three mentors each get a group of designers to work with. Even with the new dynamic of teams, Richie said it isn’t that competitive between the judges. She even said she asks them for advice from time to time while on the show.
Richie, who said the show has already by shot, said there is a lot of talent in the designers on the show. The only word she could use to explain how great the show is going to be this season is “amazing,” but she wouldn’t give away any spoilers. The only hint at what could come this season came when Richie said the designers get very competitive with each other, and being the self-proclaimed fan of drama that she is, Richie is always trying to get the best gossip.
Today Show: Nicole Richie Gets Fashion Inspiration From Music
Nicole Richie told the Today Show when she is designing clothes, she gets her inspiration from music.

She also tries to get her customers to stop buying into trends as well, telling them to find inspiration for clothing in everything and not from other people. She tells them to know what makes you feel good.
“Fashion is the ultimate self expression,” she told the Today Show.
