Nicole Richie attends NBC Universal’s summer press day held at The Langham Huntington on Wednesday (April 18) in Pasadena, Calif.
The 30-year-old designer, joined by fellow Fashion Star mentor John Varvatos, promoted their reality competition, while Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton talked to reporters about The Voice.
“I am here to hold their hands and go through the journey with them and encourage them to be themselves and listen to buyers,” Nicole told Zap2It about helping aspiring designers on the show.
“I understand there is a difference between being an artist and being a businessperson,” she added, “and pushing them to express their individuality as a designer and make that transition from designer to building a brand.”
FYI: Nicole paired her Winter Kate leather laser cut top with Helmut Lang pants. She accessorized with jewelry and shoes both by House of Harlow 1960.
