#NewSeries: @Rihanna Brings “Styled to Rock” Reality Show to @StyleNetwork
Rihanna, no doubt, is extremely talented! Most of us know her music well, and of course, she’s a style icon. She is now going to dabble in reality television…again.
Styled to Rock will be a fashion reality series that stars Rihanna and is also produced by the Bajan beauty. It will be shown on the Style Network and it premiers sometime in 2013.
You may have heard of this show before because Rihanna kicked it off with the same concept in the UK this year, but the ratings weren’t as good as expected which caused its cancellation. Honestly, I was surprised to hear this. Hopefully, bringing her television talents across the pond to the US will help.
The press release stated: “Rihanna will personally select the 12 designers who will compete for the coveted opportunity to dress some of the biggest names in entertainment. To help the designers reach their ultimate artistic potential, Rihanna will enlist the guidance of top experts from the fashion industry to serve as mentors. Each week, challenges will push the designers to their creative limits when they are tasked with styling an A-list star. Each week’s celebrity guest will determine which designer best achieves their vision – and advances to the next week of competition. Faced with the threat of elimination, the remaining designers must meet with the mentors to discuss where they fell short and ultimately who will be sent home. In the end, one designer will be named the winner of “Styled to Rock.”
Sounds like this show will be similar to television network Lifetime’s and previously Bravo’s Project Runway, which is a major hit by the way and has ran ten seasons and is currently running its second all-star season.
“Fashion has always played an integral part in my life and career,” said Rihanna. “I am so excited to partner with Style Network and share my creative insight with these 12 designers and give them this opportunity to showcase their work.”
I personally will be watching. Hope you guys will as well!
