If Rihanna can do nothing else, she can dress with the best. From show-stopping gowns on the red carpet to her everyday lounge wear, she is undoubtedly a style icon. Landing a fashion reality series was only a matter of time.
The “We Found Love” singer has just inked a deal with Sky Living HD in the U.K. to executive produce and appear in a “Project Runway”-esque reality show. She and Nicola Roberts, of London’s Girls Aloud, will host the competition searching for Britain’s most talented undiscovered designers.
Rihanna tells Sky Living:
“I’ve always had a great love of fashion. It’s a constant source of inspiration in my life, and is a big reason why I’ve grown into the person and artist I am today. I have been very fortunate to work with some truly amazing designers and stylists throughout my career, and they have been instrumental in making sure my creative vision reaches the stage. I am excited to follow the journey of our aspiring contestants and see how their individuality influences their efforts during the course of the show.”
Over 10 weeks, Rihanna and Roberts will challenge contestants to create one-of-a-kind outfits for musicians and celebrities. The ultimate prize is the opportunity to design a stage outfit for Rihanna to perform in during the Wireless Festival at London’s Hyde Park in July.
The show is yet to be titled, but is expected to premiere this summer in the UK.
