Whether or not you love Jessica Simpson, there's no denying that the girl's got staying power. Simpson is slated to return to TV for NBC's Fashion Star, a new Project Runway-esque series that pits 14 designers against each other for a chance to create their own brands. Each week the contestants will present their latest looks at a fashion show, and those of us watching at home will actually have the chance to buy the clothes. (Let's face it, we've all shouted "I want that!" at our TVs during Project Runway at least once.)
The show will be hosted by Elle Macpherson while Jessica Simpson will serve as the celebrity mentor (The "Tim Gunn" if you will). Simpson's launched a number of successful clothing lines, so she's got the cred, but really I'm just hoping the pop star can bring some of that Newlyweds entertainment value back to the small screen. Are you looking forward to a new fashion-centric series? And how do you feel about Simpson taking another crack at reality TV?
