Nicole Richie Joins "Fashion Star"

She's one of Hollywood's most style-savvy ladies, and now Nicole Richie is taking her style sense to NBC's new reality series "Fashion Star," where she'll help mentor aspiring fashion icons.

The 29-year-old, who serves as creative director to her Winter Kate line, will join alongside menswear designer designer John Varvatos and singer-turned-fashion-mogul Jessica Simpson as celeb mentors, while supermodel Elle MacPherson will helm the chic new show as host.

"Jessica, Nicole, John and Elle make the most exciting team we have ever worked with on a reality television show and we are thrilled to feature such an extraordinary group of mentors and designers," said "Fashion Star" executive producer, Ben Silverman.

The reality competition, made up of weekly challenges, will offer its up-and-coming fashionistas a chance at a multi-million dollar contract to help launch their very own brand.
