Joining fellow fashionista Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie is set to offer up some of her design expertise as a celebrity mentor on NBC's Fashion Star.

Nicole has her own clothing line, Winter Kate (her daughter Harlow's two middle names), so she certainly brings experience to the program.

Elle MacPherson will handle hosting duties on Fashion Star.

Fashion Star is slated to debut later this year.

"Jessica, Nicole, John and Elle make the most exciting team we have ever worked with on a reality TV show and we are thrilled to feature such an extraordinary group of mentors and designers," executive producer Ben Silverman said.

Although she helms a fashion empire of sorts, mom of two Richie says her own personal style is much less thought out than you'd think.

Sometimes last year's fashion can be this year's, too. Nicole Richie wore her very own Winter Kate design on New Year's Eve one year ago, as seen below.

Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo, meanwhile, donned the very same thing just last weekend to ring in the new year. It certainly worked both times!

Who wore it better, though? That's for your votes to decide ...

Nicole Richie is known for her boho-chic style and her Hollywood pedigree - and with fans like Madonna wearing her House of Harlow 1960 jewelry line, her design career couldn’t be hotter. But it's about to get hotter still.

Hotter in a cute, maternal kind of way.

Pregnant with her second child (daughter Harlow Madden is 19 months old), the star has signed on to create (and model) a line of maternity clothes with Nicole's signature flair for A Pea in the Pod, a higher-end maternity fashion line.

Richie said that a collaboration was an easy call since “Pea in the Pod is such a known company for pregnant women. They carry great lines, and so when they asked me to create a line for them, I was really excited and eager to do it.”

Nicole Richie brings her unique style to the world of maternity clothes.

Being pregnant herself means Nicole is considerate of her customers: “You feel like you have to change your whole wardrobe - the last thing a woman wants to go through. So I really tried to make this line to get women excited.”

Nicole admits she doesn’t always wear maternity clothes, but thinks the pregnant form should be flaunted: “I think the pregnant body is beautiful, and I think you should show it off,” citing her jean cutoffs as a go-to this pregnancy.
