In addition to being the style director of Marie Claire, a judge on Project Runway, and an adviser for Moda Operandi, Nina Garcia has signed on as J.C. Penney's  "Style Voice and fashion collection curator," according to her website. This means she'll help the retailer's merchandise and design teams figure out what's trendy, as well as drum up publicity through social media and public appearances. The announcement was surely pegged to all the fuss over Project Runway's season 10 premiere (tonight!).
