Jessica Simpson and Nicole Richie made an appearance at NBC's Winter TCA Tour on Friday in Pasadena, and the ladies chatted about their new competition series, Fashion Star. The starlets (along with designer John Varvatos), will serve as celebrity mentors to promising designers, and supermodel Elle MacPherson will host the show.

Jessica covered up her bulging baby bump in a green Roberto Cavalli number, while Nicole showed off her slim figure in a Chloe dress. Naturally, she wore her own House of Harlow 1960 jewelry, and while she looks picture perfect here, she recently revealed that she's quite challenged when it comes to getting red carpet ready. I actually dont know how to put on makeup at all, she recently told InStyle. I have to get it done every time I want to wear makeup. I do not know how to wear it at all. Its so bad. I dont even own it. I only own under-eye concealer, Maybelline mascara, and an eyelash curler.

We'd never have known!
