Is Friday the new hot day to air fashion reality shows? This past season's America's Next Top Model aired every Friday at 8 p.m. on the CW—and just today NBC announced that Fashion Star will make its second series debut on March 8th, also at 8 p.m. Last season, Fashion Star aired on Tuesdays.
Anyhoo, Tuesday-Friday. The second season of Fashion Star will see the return of judges/mentors/peanut-gallery Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie, and John Varvatos along with "buyers" from Macy's, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Express. Notice anything missing? Ah yes, the H&M "buyer" (really: communications director) won't be back for season two. And supermodel Elle Macpherson, who hosted season one (and co-produces the series) will cede the spotlight to Brit Louise Roe.
Are you excited for the second season of Fashion Star? Did you watch season one? Tell us what you thought about it in the comments. We wonder how the producers will change up the show this time around.
