Nicki Minaj isn’t going to be the only hip-pop diva with a spot on reality television; Rihanna has landed a lil gig of her own.
Earlier in the year we reported that Rihanna was working on a reality television series in the UK, but it turns out the public isn’t as RiRi crazy in the UK as we are across the pond – because the show didn’t do as well as anticipated.
But that’s all good, because Rihanna and the show Styled To Rock are coming to a Style Network near us. The show formula will follow the same one it did in the UK. Rihanna will put her Heidi Klum hat on (a la Project Runway) and choose 12 up-and-coming designers to create pieces for some of her A-list celebrity friends.
The official press release reads as follows:
“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’.”
That Rihanna reign really won’t let up.
