Fashion Star is an American reality television series on NBC, created by Rick Ringbakk which focuses on fashion design and is hosted by Louise Roe. It was hosted by Elle Macpherson in the first season. The contestants compete with each other to create the best clothes and are restricted in time, materials and theme. Their designs are judged, and one or more designers are eliminated each week. On May 11, 2012, NBC renewed Fashion Star for a second season. Season 2 premiered Friday, March 8, 2013. On July 27, 2013, NBC canceled Fashion Star after two seasons.

    It is a smartly conceived look at the populist side of fashion.

    There's a germ of a good idea in the massively overproduced Fashion Star.

    Fashion Star's debut lasts 90 minutes but feels as though it's about five hours.

    This possibly could work, and isn't entirely unwatchable.

    The show moves along with the dull, humming smoothness of commerce. [19 Mar 2012, p.42]

    The real stars are the designers, and it's an eclectic bunch, some already working in the industry, others who dream to.

    If you can see the forest through the trees, it's good, wearable fashion that's the real "fashion star" on this show, and it gives viewers an unusual glimpse into the world of retail despite all the superfluous hoopla.

    Absent from this show are the ridiculous clothes that look like they belong on clowns and strippers. In their place are serious, wearable clothes that are, for the most part, so beautiful, so well-tailored and so, yes, sellable, that you'll want to buy them right up.

    It's a unique concept [public can purchase online that night or the next day], although that's where Fashion Star's originality ends.

    The glossy you-won't-see-this-on-cable production values support a relatively straightforward competition structure, whittling down 14 contestants until a single winner emerges.

    Fashion Star is a skimpy little show. You might buy something in the evening, but beware those morning-after regrets.

    Viewers barely get to understand the challenge before the designers' clothing is revealed in a gaudy runway show, featuring flashing neon lights and blaring music that are the opposite of stylish.

    [Fashion Star falls] in to the same X Factor trap by amping up a tried-and-true format at every conceivable turn until the final product has all the subtlety of a Victoria's Secret runway show.

    Fashion Star remains a cool idea. But its execution and formatting need work.

  • David Hinckley

    In an attempt to distinguish itself from a dozen previous TV fashion competitions, which is not a bad goal, Fashion Star ends up feeling overly complicated and a little cluttered.
