The actress who is launching her own clothing line this year has a say in determining which designer of season 7 should go home first.
Nicole Richie will be one of the guest judges in the new season of "Project Runway" when it returns to Lifetime on January 14 at 10/9c. The first look of her sitting on the panel, joining Michael Kors and Nina Garcia, has been teased through an exclusive clip from E! Online.
Host Heidi Klum introduces the competing designers to the judges one by one and gets to Nicole who was still blonde. The seventh season of the show was indeed taped late last year because the sixth season was still on air following a dispute between Lifetime and Bravo TV.
Nicole herself is keen on fashion, having a clothing line called Winter Kate which will soon launch a new collection in Spring. "With every year I always try and learn something new and grow gracefully, and that's just kind of my rule for every year," she said last week in Las Vegas.
Regarding what to expect from Winter Kate, Nicole said, "I just like to throw something on and have it be comfortable but have it look good at the same time. That was really what I was aiming for." She additionally has a shoe line coming out this year.
Beside the fashion, Nicole Richie will keep herself busy with a new TV show for ABC. "I am creating a half hour scripted comedy for ABC in which I will be starring in, as well as producing," the actress who hailed from "The Simple Life" said last month.
