She seems to really be loving her shorter hair!

Vanessa Hudgens took her boyfriend Austin Butler to the John Varvatos Style & Substance party in New York City Tuesday night.

The starlet could have easily passed as Johnny Depp's daughter in an all-black ensemble, turquoise jewelry, wide-brimmed hat and Chanel flap bag.

Vanessa's look is a little over styled, but is still very "her".

What do U think??? Too much or just right???

We know you missed Fashion Star, but don’t worry, it’s back!

NBC announced will premiere Friday, March 8 in the 8 p.m. time slot.

They must be taking tips from Tyra!

The returning mentors will still be Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie and John Varvatos while Louise Roe plays hostess.

This season, the contestants will be able to launch a multimillion dollar line at Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue and Express, but not H&M like the first season.

NBC hopes the new changes and the move from Tuesday to Friday night will bring in more than the 4.8 million viewers that tuned in last season.

We hope they're right!

Will U be watching???

Elle Macpherson's star has fallen from Fashion Star!

The Body will no longer be the hostess with the mostess for NBC's fashion competition show when it returns for its second season.

Even though Elle is out as hostess, she says she'll still be very involved with the show as executive producer:

"I have been involved with Fashion Star from the beginning, and am very proud to see it come to life, not only in America but globally. The show is in great hands, and although I will not be hosting this season, I will still be very involved [and] will be reviewing the format for the upcoming season."

Also not returning for the second season? Co-sponsor H&M. According to sources the fast fashion chain decided the reality show was no longer "a good fit".

Despite all the changes, mentors Jessica Simpson, John Varvatos and Nicole Richie are still on board, at least for now.

Thoughts???

Kara Laricks!

The 38-year-old designer from NYC beat out the competition, Nzimiro Oputa and Ronnie Escalante, and was crowned the winner of the first season of NBC's Fashion Star.

Each of her collections were sold for $2 million to H&M, Macy's, and Saks Fifth Avenue.

She later expressed her excitement, saying:

"I feel so overwhelmed. I don't know what to say. I'm so thrilled… at the opportunity to keep going and keep designing. This is so exciting, so thrilling!"

Mentor Nicole Richie told the final three contestants:

"I have such a deep amount of respect for all three of you, and you should be extremely proud of where you are tonight."

While a tearful Jessica Simpson, and fellow mentor, said:

"Each and every one of you, the people that you are and what you represent, you've inspired me to be better."

So inspiring! Way to go, Kara! Congratulations… You deserve this!
