My Newest TV Addiction: Fashion Star

I'll admit, I can get sucked into TV shows really easily - whether it be reality, dramas, or competitive shows, when I start watching a TV show, I just can't stop. That being said, I'm officially addicted to NBC's newest reality show - Fashion Star. It's sort of like an updated, new, and fresh take on Project Runway. 

Fourteen designers create a new piece each week in three different variations (mostly just color differences), and three different buyers - one from H&M, Macy's and Saks Fifth Avenue - decide if they want to buy the designer's pieces. If they do, then those designs can be bought the next days in that store. If a store buys your design, you're safe for the week. If not, you're up for elimination. The judges are allowed to save one person from the bottom three, and the buyers decide which of the bottom two goes home. Sort of hard to explain through text, but if you see the show, it's a lot more understandable. 

The show is hosted by Elle Macpherson, and three judges, Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie, and John Varvatos, serve as mentors for the designers and comment on the final products. Even though the show has only aired two episodes so far, the piece that Saks bought last week is already sold out!

I already have two favorite designers too - Sarah Parrott & Orly Shany. Sarah's designs from the past two weeks were both bought by H&M. I'm in love with the Bright Blue Backless Dress and the Tuxedo Trousers, and with a thrifty price of $19.95, I'm dying to get my hands on both! Orly Shany's Zip Mini Skirt was bought by Sak's and was so unique and innovative! I was shocked when her design from last night wasn't bought by anyone. It was a convertible dress that could be totally transformed. 

I can't wait to see the rest of the season, and hopefully buy some of these amazing pieces! If you want to check out Fashion Star, tune into NBC on Tuesday nights at 10/9c.

Do you watch Fashion Star? Have you bought any of these pieces? Who are your favorite designers? 

***Update: 03/23: I went and bought the blue dress from H&M! There were only two left when I got there, but luckily one of them was in my size :)

  13. Not gunna lie -- I am not the biggest fan of the show and am greatly disappointed.. I want to see just clothes, no backup dancers and effects. I love Elle, Nicole, and the buyers.. But this show just isn't working for me. xx
