Have a great weekend and enjoy your Spring Break if you live in the Northern Hemisphere. Hope the Fall isn’t too harsh if you’re in the south. Such a wide, great world, isn’t it?!



Jessica Simpson’s feet are closer to the ground these days. The pregnant designer and Fashion Star mentor, 32, has eschewed her beloved high heels as her second pregnancy progresses — and apparently she needs practice! “Practicing walking in flats around my house,” Simpson tweeted late Friday, March 29, with an accompanying picture.

“Jessica is no longer wearing heels,” a source told Us Weekly about two weeks ago. “Her feet are swollen and hurt, and high heels hurt her back.”

Expecting a son this time around with fiance Eric Johnson, Simpson made a similar, necessary sacrifice during her first pregnancy with daughter Maxwell Drew, nearly 11 months.




Jessica, kindly share once again baby Fashionista, Maxwell with us and how her VERY hard work paid off when she fit into her gown two months after she set that goal for herlsef. Yeah, weight watchers!!!

This week’s challenge is to design a piece for summer.

Nearly 2 million dollars of clothes have been sold so far this season
First we go to the design room. Each team will have a theme. Now each group will work as a team and pick a theme.
Now John’s team decides on the Tropical Vacation theme, Team Jessica picks the pool party theme. Leaving Team Nicole with Summer in the City Theme John says this is the hardest challenge, they must overcome their team differences. Nicole wants to make sure her team will work together. Jessica’s team is thinking of doing a maxi-dress. Hunter would like it to have a lot of bright colors, and Jessica agrees. Team Nicole is doing a summer suit, Priscilla is using the same fabric in which Joanna is using for her skirt. Joanna is dissapointed because her team members don’t connect with her.

John’s team chooses a distinct group of 4 different colors for each team member to use. Cassandra is attempting to do a tie-dye maxi dress. Amber is doing pants, one leg tie-dye and one leg neon. John is not a fan of the drawstring he finds them clumsy. He calls her youthful but he says she is still a good designer. Jessica is very confidant with her team because her boys are Jersey boys. We return to Joanna and her jumpsuit but Nicole is assuming the other designers are OK with this. Daniel then rants on and says how dissapointed he and Priscilla are with her. Johana then leaves her team alone to guy buy new fabric.

Tensions rise after the commercial break 15 minutes till buying time.

Daniel ponders how Johana changing things will effect her team. They then confront Johana and realize there is nothing they can really do. Hunter hates here dress. Garrett and Jesse Ray are there to support her. Clam-digger pants are being made by Brandon. John Varvatos would rather it be turned to a short. Brandon is thinking that he better listen to John for once. Hunter thinks her romper looks like a Prom Dress so she is changing her idea. Amber loves her pants and says they are perfect for vacation. Cassandra says Amber really has nothing special. Amber would like Cassandra to confront her and she complained to Silvia about that. Cassandra awkwardly comes over to listen in on the conversation and apologizes to Amber after a brief argument.

The First fashion show is coming up and a reminder that whatever is bought will be put immediately on sale at the end of the show is the store which bought the piece.
