Our own Jeannie Mai is counting down to the premiere of Fashion Star, NBC’s new competition series that gives viewers the chance to follow the journey of fashion designers as they make their stylish dreams come true. We chatted with Jeannie about her work as Digital Correspondent for the show…
Fashion Star premieres tonight! Are you stoked?
I’m very excited to have all my friends from How Do I Look? follow along this other dimension of fashion and really be involved. Gone are the days when you have to fly to New York, Paris or London to see runway-worthy styles up close; now you get to be a part of the action. I can’t wait to start this journey!
Tell us about the show.
The world has never seen a reality competition like this before. Not only are you seeing renowned names like Nicole Richie and Jessica Simpson guide these designers, you’re also seeing dreams come true for the lucky contestants. Instead of just having one winner at the end, a number of designers are highlighted and placed into stores and into the lives of many women. That’s pretty big. You have a connection to the success, you feel like you helped to make it happen.
