Tue, June 14, 2011 10:14am EDT by 3 Comments

Jessica Simpson is expanding her fashion empire to TV—and moving in on Tim Gunn‘s territory!

The singer-actress-fashion designer, 30, has been tapped by NBC to serve as the “celebrity mentor” on its upcoming reality TV series Fashion Star,  in which a group of 14 designers compete to create and launch their own clothing collection.

Supermodel Elle Macpherson will host and executive produce the show, which has no debut date yet.

Jessica’s past reality TV show credits include 2005’s The Newlyweds, which is widely credited for putting strain on her marriage to ex-husband Nick Lachey, and VH1’s The Price of Beauty, which aired last year.

Paul Telegdy, NBC Universal’s Executive Vice President of Alternative Programming, said of Simpson, “With an almost billion dollar lifestyle brand under her belt she is sure to be an excellent mentor to our up-and-coming designers.”

And Ben Silverman, the head of Fashion Star‘s studio Electus, adds “Jessica Simpson has built an incredible fashion business and is a perfect mentor to our aspiring designers. She will complement the buyers, Elle Macpherson and amazing format.”

That’s not even her body, you can totally tell by the lighting, and the way that her head is just a touch too big for her frame that she’s been photoshopped.
