Reality Fix: Fashion Star “Pilot”
I watch way too much TV in general so I try to choose carefully when deciding what to add to my already (over)full schedule. I guess I have a weakness for reality fashion shows (well, some reality fashion shows), because I knew I was going to give Fashion Star a chance. I like the brands of all the mentors and the host. I like that we’re finally seeing a fashion show where commerce plays a major role - because, guess what, it does in real life. I like that the mentors are there for advice and to save someone the buyers put in the bottom 3 each week. I think where Nicholas Bowles really got into trouble this week was dissing and dimissing Jessica Simpson’s opinion. And every time he opened his mouth to ”explain,” it just got worse. The producers of this show picked these 3 mentors for a reason. I think they have a lot to teach these designers and if anyone thinks they’re too good to at least listen to their advice, they should get out of the fashion game now.
