Louise Roe cried when she found out got the job as host of 'Fashion Star'.

The 31-year-old star was thrilled to land a role on the NBC series alongside mentors Nicole Richie, Jessica Simpson and John Varvatos because it incorporates all of her favourite things.

Speaking at the Simply Stylist Los Angeles fashion panel, Louise told BANG Showbiz: ''When I found out I got the 'Fashion Star' job I cried. Nicole, Jessica and John are so nice, they were so welcoming.

''It's such an exciting show to be a part of and it brings together all of my favourite parts of my career. I love that the clothes are fashionable and affordable and I think that's something that makes us different from other shows.''

While Louise feels lucky to have landed the 'Fashion Star' gig, she admitted to having a tough time at the beginning of her career, in particular when she was sent to interview supermodel Linda Evangelista.

She said: ''Linda Evangelista was terrifying, she was my first interview. It was fun though, she warmed up to me in the end. My advice to anyone starting out is just fake it 'til you make it. It's like trying to get into a club in LA, act like you belong.''

Louise was joined by fellow panellists Whitney Port, Brad Goreski, Melissa Magsaysay and Jacqueline Rezak at the Simply Stylist event which was hosted by E! News anchor Catt Sadler.
