ShinyStyle poll: are you watching Stylista

Looks like Anne Slowey doesn’t have quite Heidi’s appeal. The Elle fashion news director’s fashion reality show Stylista isn’t exactly raking in the ratings.

It’s coming out below Gossip Girl, which we expected because nothing’s as good as Gossip Girl for your fashion fix. But it’s even below the new 90210.

The competition to become the next Elle editorial assistant attracts 1.97 million viewers a week, compared to similarly-themed Project Runway’s 3 mill a week – on cable, no less.

So, we were wondering, are you watching Stylista?

Preview the CW’s ‘Stylista’ and spot the Devil Wears Prada mimicks

By Andrea Kiliany Thatcher on June 18th, 2008

Could the CW have choreographed “Stylista” to be a any more like “The Devil Wears Prada?” Why Anne Slowey, Elle’s fashion news director, would agree to be portrayed as the evil editrix we go from loving to hate to just plan pitying and reviling is questionable, but I guess it’s just TV and hopefully not real.

“Stylista” hopefuls tremble in presence of Miranda Priestly – er, Anne Slowey

By Andrea Kiliany Thatcher on May 15th, 2008

Fresh from the Tyra Banks factory of reality shows (read about the ANTM finale here), comes “Stylista,” a show which pits budding fashion mag lackeys against each other to win a coveted position as Fashion News Director Anne Slowey’s assistant.

Clips have become available for us to have our first sneaky peek and it looks so ridic it might actually be good…

To view more clips (and find out our thoughts on them), see below the jump…

America’s Next Top Fashion Journalist

By Andrea Thatcher on January 31st, 2008


We don’t know if we can take any more Tyra Banks. Particularly after realizing how hard it is to find a normal, attractive picture of her for this post – one where she doesn’t have a hairstyle that looks like origami or is trying to look super fierce. But … we digress.

What we can take – and gladly – is a show that focuses on fashion journalism. Banks and Ken Mok, producers of “America’s Next Top Model”, are reportedly working on a new show for the CW where contestants compete for a job at Elle. (Next concern: can we take any more Elle?)

Elle directors Joe Zee and Anne Slowey would judge the would-be journalistas. Since this is the CW, we don’t expect much serious reporting. But we’ve enjoyed other faux-reality glimpses behind the glossies like The Hills and Miss Seventeen, so we would be happy to integrate this into our non-scripted television schedule
