Stylista


Photo credit: The CW

I've heard lots of buzz these days about Tyra Banks' new reality show, Stylista, which will be airing this fall on the CW. It's a show with 11 aspiring fashion magazine editors competing for a position at Elle magazine. The winner also recieves a paid lease on a great apartment in Manhattan and $100,000 to buy clothes at H&M.

Each week there will be two challenges and the contestant that doesn't measure up will be elimanated or "fired" by Anne Slowey, the fashion news director of Elle, who is also their mentor.

From many sources, I've heard lots of critiscm about the show, but I'm looking forward to seeing what it's like. It sounds a lot like The Apprentice, which is one of my favorite shows, except Stylista is about fashion. I really can't wait!

100K at H&M? The winner will be shopping for years!!! wow
I am also looking forward to the show!

The Clothes Horse said...

This would be amazing, except that Tyra Banks is involved. Too bad they have to spend the money at H&M. I love H&M, but if I had a 100,000 it would be spent elsewhere!

SKYLA said...

I would love to see this too. I hope it comes to the UK.

Alice said...

I looking forward to the show! The idea sounds great. I'm sure in Italy we hardly ever have a reality kind of.

I'm interested in checking it out, too. If should be entertaining.

Karissa said...

I hope that Manhatten apartment is as large as it is great -- with $100,000 at H&M, the winner will be buying A LOT of clothes. The show sounds very "Devil Wears Prada." Can't wait!

Fashion Tidbits said...

oh, so it was Tyra Banks' idea, i see

Jello on Springs said...

I'll probably tune in, even though it is a tyra banks inspired idea...i dunno what it is about her, she's like a food allergy. You know you're not supposed to have shrimp, peanuts, or whatever you might be allergic to but you eat it anyways. But i agree with the clothes horse, they should just give them 100,000 to shop wherever they want.

Jello on Springs said...

oh and i'd love to trade links with you =]

Meg said...

I was wary as soon as you said Tyra Banks, who I cannot stand. Also, $100000 at H&M? I'd find it hard spending over £200 at H&M! However, if it's causing contraversy, it's probably vaguely interesting =)

KiKi said...

that is my dream job but replace elle with british vogue!

millicent said...

thank you! i love writing, and i'd love to exchange links with you =)

the new show sounds interesting, and that's a mighty huge prize. i doubt i'll watch it tho, i've never really been into those apprentice-type shows.

Cait said...

Thanks for the note. That would be great to link.

I was so wondering about this show you mentioned. I was so afraid Project Runway was going to the CW. Thanks for clearing that up.

Cupcakes and Cashmere said...

Wow, that will be such a fun show! Can you even imagine the bitchiness that will ensue? Additionally, I wonder what kind of big bucks Elle has paid over to CW to be featured in all of their shows!

Margherita. said...

I always secretly love Tyra, and bad reality TV. So I can't wait!

vogued out!!! said...

Despite all the negative criticism about the show I'm still very elated to see the show.

Imelda Matt said...

i read about this a while ago and I don't give a f**k what the word is...the more fashion related TV the more I'll be glued to box (which means nights in a saving money...LOL).

hannah said...

that looks really interesting. i will watch if tyra isnt actually on camera.

She's Dressing Up said...

Thats a lot of money just on H&M!! Im deffo excited for this show!

Good Girl Gone Shopping said...

Now that sounds like a Reality TV show right up my alley...go Tyra, you power house you.

(...I added you to my "Fabulous Blogs")

kim said...

I believe that one of the candidates was a fashion blogger? The show isn't on cable here. $100000 is way to much to spend in H&M (though I love their stuff)
