Fashion Star: Tickets to NBC’s new fashion show with Elle Macpherson, Jessica Simpson and more!

If you have ever wanted to attend a real runway show with celebrities, this is your chance… tickets are FREE.

Elle Macpherson is bringing the glitz and glam of fashion to NBC PRIME TIME television. Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie, and John Varvatos have been named as the show’s celebrity mentors!!

All across America, students, soccer moms, accountants, and people from all walks of life are sewing in their basements, selling jewelry at small town conventions and creating incredible works of fashion. And even though they all may come from different walks of life, they all share the same burning desire… to be discovered and expose their designs and creations on a national level, and most importantly, to see their dreams become a reality.

This show will inspire them to do just that. In this new competition series, Elle Macpherson – model, successful businesswoman, and an icon in the fashion world – is searching for the next big fashion star. In every episode, designers will be faced with challenges specifically crafted to further develop their fashion lines. With the help and guidance of Elle, they will present their new creations to a team of buyers and expert designers who will ultimately decide who stays and who goes each week. In the final episode, only one designer will be crowned the winner and their collection will be showcased in several major department stores across the nation for all of America to buy.

L ast Comic Standing brings up the rear on our list of favorites. It was a big favorite of ours in the first two years, but last year they seem to be stretching the fabric of humor. Last year was a disaster, with promising talent after promising talent ignored while boring acts were consistently chosen by the judges who appeared to never laugh as they picked the people they wished to torture us with. There was one true talent in the group, Lavelle Crawford, and he made it to the finals with such hysterical lines as “Why are you breathing that heavy?” “So I can live!! What Kind of Stupid Question is That?” And did he win? No. It was a joke. I guess that is appropriate for a Comedy show though.

Funny KuThis year, they have stepped it up.  The talent appears to be much better, but the recent elimination of Esther Ku tells me that the biggest reason someone does not win in this show, and in many other reality shows involving performances, is he or she had to go first.  The last performance always always seems to garner the most votes.  And the first elimination show of this season was no exception, the first act went home while the final act garnered the most votes, when there was little difference in the quality of the performances.  In fact, I laughed more at the first.  But people’s memories are short, and that is why, as Alonzo Bodden said, we invented instant replay, “Because we can’t remember something we just saw five seconds ago.”

The show should also have more performance competition and less hype.  Allowing the contestants to vote off other contestants forcing them to go into elimination just makes it mean spirited.  I would rather see more of a face off of the talents like on American Idol.  And the viewing audience does not get to vote at all.  They leave it to the live audience, perhaps leaving their viewers a bit detached.

That said, winners like Josh Blue, Alonzo Bodden and Dat Phan have made me laugh more at a television comic than even the professionals making millions touring.  There are times I am nearly in tears laughing at this show.  So, if they continue to step up the talent, and the judges can continue to pick winners like they did this year, this could move up on our list.
