Louise Roe hosts NBC's reality competition series "Fashion Star."
As a television presenter and fashion journalist, Roe hosts "Plain Jane," her makeover show which airs on MTV International. Each episode, Roe guides a shy "wallflower" through the daunting gauntlet of fashion, make-up and dating skills, and helps her overcome her biggest fears. The show currently airs in 66 countries around the globe.
Roe co-anchored ABC's live pre-Oscars show this past spring and also co-hosted E! News' live coverage of the Royal Wedding. In addition, for the second year in a row, she anchored MTV International's red carpet coverage of the Movie Awards, VMAs and EMAs. Roe also fronts MTV's "Bullied," which is a national campaign to stop bullying in schools across the globe.
Roe currently pens a monthly style column for Men's Health and a travel column for Huffington Post. She designs a successful collection of shoes, jewelry and handbags for European retailer Stylistpick and has a namesake clothing line for retail giant HSN.
Additional television appearances include MTV's "The City," where she was a regular cast member, E! Entertainment's "Fashion Police," "Live from the Oscars" and the dating show "Perfect Catch." She has also performed makeovers as a guest on the network's "Chelsea Lately."
Born in the U.K. but based in L.A., Roe presented BBC's long-standing style series "The Clothes Show" before moving stateside. She has fronted campaigns as the face of Italian fashion label Hogan and Adidas, in addition to being featured as a guest host or judge on Britain's "Next Top Model," "The Nate Berkus Show," "GMTV," "Project Catwalk," Style Network's "How Do I Look," "10 Things I Hate About Me" and "Make Me a Supermodel." Roe has written for Elle, Vogue.com, InStyle, Glamour and Cosmopolitan magazine.
She also volunteers for charities Dress for Success and Riding for the Disabled, and she is an honorary fellow at Southampton's Solent University where she lectures fashion students twice a year. Roe has worked alongside many brands as consultant or ambassador, including Range Rover, Macy's, Sears, Marks & Spencer, Gap's Piperlime, Bebe, Alfa Romeo and Littlewoods (the U.K.'s third largest online retailer).
