LA, CA, United States (Celebrity News Service) – NBC’s new show “Fashion Star” previously announced that Jessica Simpson and Elle Macpherson will part of the show as mentor and judge respectively. And now the station has announced that designer John Varvatos and Nicole Ritchie will be joining the show.

Paul Telegdy, NBC’s EVP of alternative programming is thrilled with the additions. He says, “NBC could not have asked for better additions to the celebrity mentors than John Varvatos, one of the most well-known menswear designers in the nation and international style icon and creative director, Nicole Richie.”
