After revealing back in July that supermodel Elle Macpherson would not return to host Season 2 of NBC’s reality design show Fashion Star, the network has announced Louise Roe as The Body’s replacement. The British television host is best known as the face of BBC’s The Clothes Show as well as for her appearances on E!’s Fashion Police and MTV’s The City. Macpherson will stay on as executive producer and told Deadline she is excited to welcome Louise to the cast: “I’m really excited by our choice of Louise as host for the second season,” she said. “I think her presence will energize and surprise.” Louise will guide budding designers and their mentors—Jessica Simpson, John Varvatos, and Nicole Richie—as they compete for the chance to sell their clothes to buyers from mega-retailers like Saks Fifth Avenue and Macy’s. It should be an exciting season!
