Rihanna in NY
News just in; Rihanna’s fashion/reality show/competition is set to have a new lease of life – this time over the pond in the good ol’ US of A. Remember the one? With her British chums Henry Holland and Nicola Roberts of Girls Aloud . . . ? The whole idea was that wannabe fashion designers applied to be on the show and then got to compete in rounds such as; design a look for Mr Kanye West (sure he’s worn much much worse in his time than a mere fashion student’s handiwork. Only joking Kanye!)
According to The Cut blog, the show is coming to the Style Network in the U.S. for its second season - supposedly to start as soon as later this year. Last week, Rihanna announced that Get Lucky Adonis, Pharrell Williams, would be joining her as a mentor; now model and muse of Alexander Wang, Erin Wasson will also be joining the line-up.
Rihanna’s been more than busy of late, what with touring, her second collection for River Island as well as getting changed for the paps into a never-repeating round of faaaaa-bulous outfits. Erin Wasson should know a thing or two about the design process as well as Riri; she has collaborated with Zadig & Voltaire, and RVCA as well as heading her her own brand of hippie-chic jewellery called Low Luv.
Sounds like they’ll be aiming to give Tyra Banks a run for her money . . .
