Rihanna to Star in U.S. Version of ‘Styled to Rock’ Series
After conquering the music and film worlds in 2012, it looks as if Rihanna wants to tackle the reality-TV business. The ‘Diamonds’ singer is bringing her U.K.-based fashion reality show ‘Styled to Rock‘ to the Style Network next year.
The show was a huge success in the U.K. when it aired on the Sky Living HD network back in August. Now RiRi wants to see how U.S. audiences will react to the program.
The 10-episode series, which is scheduled to air in 2013, will feature Rihanna judging 12 aspiring designers who will perform weekly tasks on designing a special outfit for an A-List celebrity. At the end of ten weeks, one designer will be chosen the winner.
In a statement (via Deadline), Rihanna said, “Fashion has always played an integral part in my life and career. 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.”
Budding designers must go to the Style Network and fill out an application before the Jan. 23 deadline. Afterward, Rihanna will handpick the 12 people from the pool of applicants for the show.
“Rihanna is a trailblazer, a trendsetter and the epitome of style. She has a powerful and unique point-of-view that transcends every aspect of pop culture, including fashion, and is a leading creative force,” said Style Media’s president, Salaam Coleman Smith.
