Fashion Star


Have you guys heard of the new show, Fashion Star? I know, I know. I thought the same thing when I first heard about it. ANOTHER fashion reality show? Really? There are just SO many as it is!

But when I saw Jessica Simpson (one of the judges) on Ellen a few weeks ago promoting the show, I found myself really interested in its premise. The show consists of a group of up-and-coming designers trying to make it big in the fashion industry. But what makes it different from other shows is that besides the judges, there are also three buyers from Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, and H&M.

Each episode, the designer actually creates a few looks and premieres each look on the runway. Each judge then gives input and advice, and then the buyers bid on looks that they like. The looks go to the store with the highest bid, and the clothing is on sale online that night and in stores the very next day! Very cool!

There have been a lot of looks that I have LOVED, but no one has bid on. Here are some of my favorite looks that did get bids:

Neon color-blocking jersey dress at Saks

Cuffed pleated satin shorts in floral at Macy’s

Turquoise Dress at H&M (the back is cut-out, but you can’t see it here!)

Plaid ankle-cropped pants at Saks

The only downside to the show is that most of the looks are sold out in less than 24 hours! Also, if Saks wins a bid, I automatically know I’m not going to be able to afford it! But it’s really fun to watch an innovative fashion show where the looks are immediately available.

Have y’all heard of this show? What are your thoughts?
