A reality TV show about fashion called Styled to Rock on the British network Sky Living isn’t exactly a failsafe idea. The idea’s practically all potential failures; it’s Project Runway with a dozen drawbacks. There’s one more major detail, though, that might entice a few more people: Rihanna’s involved. For ten weeks, contestants will compete for the chance to dress her at London’s Wireless Festival, and presumably some other presence in the fashion world besides one Rihanna costume at one show. (That costume, in case you’re curious, is here; the show’s pre-recorded, and the winner’s already been chosen.)
Still not enticing enough, (even) after that photo? Perhaps the lineup of musicians will get you to watch. A rundown, with what we imagine their role in the show will be:
Katy Perry: Will teach contestants how to wear a spinning peppermint bra without massacring their scalps or breaking their insurance policies.
Cheryl Cole: Will teach contestants how to “rock” a “distinctive” “look” with scare quotes.
The Saturdays: Will teach contestants how to accessorize with their packs of friends.
Little Mix: Will draw in X Factor fans, though slightly fewer than if they’d gotten One Direction instead. (They’re a living menswear blog! It could have happened!)
Pixie Lott: Will mention her upcoming single at least once per appearance.
Katy B: Will be awesome.
Little Boots: Will hopefully provide a runway walk to “Shake.”
Tinchy Stryder: Will have a presence that completely baffles people outside the UK and probably several inside.
Nicola Roberts: Will also be awesome. (And hey, she’s getting work!)
