Last night was the premeir of Fashion Star.  It appears to be off to a good start.  The news and blogosphere appear to be a buzz.  For those of you that have not yet heard about this new fashion TV show, you here is a brief summary about Fashion Star.

"Fashion Star” is a 10 episode primetime television series hosted and executive produced by supermodel Elle Macpherson who has also appeared in past H&M advertising campaigns. Fourteen hopeful fashion designers will compete to sell their clothes every week to a buyers’ judging panel composed of three retailers, H&M, Macy’s, and Saks Fifth Avenue. H&M’s Nicole Christie sits on the panel with her trained eye searching for garments that match the profile of the H&M customer and fit into the latest trends in stores. Mentors, Nicole Richie, Jessica Simpson and American Fashion designer John Varvatos, will advise each competitor through the challenges.
