It looks like Bravo is ready to have another go at a fashion competition show! Having launched (and lost) the hit series Project Runway, here’s hoping Bravo can recreate the magic this time around. And, signs point to success given the star-studded cast of mentors and celebrity guests.
Tune in for the premiere on Friday, October 25 at 8pm.
Styled to Rock is executive-produced by none other than Rihanna, the multi-Grammy Award winner and fashion icon. But, there’s more: Grammy Award-winning music producer Pharrell Williams, international model Erin Wasson and Rihanna’s personal stylist, Mel Ottenberg will mentor the contestants and the celebrity guest list includes Miley Cyrus, Carly Rae Jepsen, Khloé Kardashian, Kylie Minogue, Kelly Osbourne, Kid Cudi, The Band Perry, Big Sean, Nervo and Ne-Yo.
Here’s how it works:
This new reality competition series gives 12 up-and-coming designers, hand-picked by Rihanna herself, the opportunity to become America’s next trendsetting designer. Each week, the designers will be presented with a different challenge, each aimed at creating a new look to define the celebrity guest’s image, and in turn battle it out in the sewing room. However, only half of the contestants selected by the mentors will get to showcase their new design for the client and have a shot at winning. The other half will be placed up for elimination. The stakes are high because the grand prize is life-changing: $100,000 cash, a fashion feature in Glamour magazine and the chance to become the next member of Rihanna’s design team.
