Nicole Richie linked up with her fellow Fashion Star mentor John Varvatos at the H&M on Fifth Avenue in NYC last night. The duo were on hand to celebrate the first season of their show, though fellow Fashion Star personality Jessica Simpson couldn't be on hand. Jessica is awaiting the birth of her first child, a daughter, with fiancé Eric Johnson. Yesterday also brought a new installment of the program. Nicole was excited to find out what fans made of the latest developments and tweeted, "West Coast, can't wait to read your reactions to tonight's episode of Fashion Star." Nicole and John met up with her brother-in-law, DJ Josh Madden, inside the bash. Last week, Nicole and John were together as well on the West Coast. They went to Pasadena for NBC's Summer press event, where they chatted up the reality design competition even more.
