Now this is what having A List friends is all about. If you’re one of the biggest pop stars in the world and decide to executive produce a fashion programme about wannabe British designers then you’d no doubt start pulling in a few favours with some famous mates. Which is exactly what Rihanna’s done with her new Sky Living HD show, Styled To Rock.
Not only does she have Nicola Roberts, designer Henry Holland and stylist Lysa Cooper helping her out as judges and mentors, but each episode will star a different celebrity.
And the list is pretty damn impressive. Taking centre stage in their respective episodes will be: Cheryl Cole, Katy Perry, The Scissor Sisters, Pixie Lott, Rizzle Kicks, Tinchy Stryder, Little Mix, Little Boots and of course Rihanna herself.
And if that’s not eyebrow-raising enough, Calvin Harris has created and produced the music for the show while celebrity hairdresser Nicky Clarke and his minions will be creating the overall looks for the designer to showcase their outfits each week.
We’re guessing the Celebrity Big Brother producers will be wiping their sweaty top lips right about now.
The guest celeb’s job will be to challenge the 12 contestants to design a bespoke and innovative stage outfit for them to wear at a variety of important occasions, including live performances, shoots and red-carpet events. The terrified designers will have the help and support of Nicola, Henry and Lysa, which will either reassure them or scare them into slavering speechlessness. We’re hoping for the latter.
The finale will see the winner designing an outfit for Rihanna to wear at her biggest live London gig.
The series lasts for 10 weeks and will be on Sky Living HD from 14 August. Have a look at the trailer below. We’ll DEFINITELY be watching. Will you?
