Have we mentioned that we are obsessed with Rihanna? Her I-don’t-give-an-eff attitude and looks have clearly won a warm place in our hearts but it looks like her edgy style has also earned her admiration from the Brits. The U.K. is welcoming Rihanna with open arms, and an opportunity to produce and star on an upcoming fashion reality competition series called “Styled to Rock.” This career move seems like the next natural step for RiRi — as she already is stylin’ and rockin’, duh. And who wouldn’t want to be able to watch her do her thang on a more regular basis? With Sky Living HD so kindly offering this experience to London, we may all have to start to seriously consider making more frequent trips to England.
The only doubt we have regarding this new gig as an official fashion mentor (let’s be real, we’ve been taking unofficial fashion tips from this celeb for awhile) is that the new series seems quite similar to NBC’s “Fashion Star” and evokes some, “been there, done that” sentiments. Pop singer turned fashion mentor appears to follow in the footsteps of Jessica Simpson, who is a judge on “Fashion Star.” While Jessica’s style is way more, well, subdued in comparison to Rihanna’s aesthetic choices, she has built a billion-dollar fashion empire and we gotta say, her shoe line is pretty damn cute. On the other hand, we anticipate that Rihanna will offer some pretty respectable pointers to her mentees. So, who would you rather learn the business of fashion design from? (Disclaimer: The winner of “Styled to Rock” gets to design an outfit for one of Rihanna’s live performances!)
