According to MTV Style, MEL OTTENBERG will join Pharrell Williams and model/designer Erin Wasson on Style Network’s new competition series, Styled to Rock, which debuted in the U.K. last year (12).
Rihanna, who will serve as executive producer of the show, says, “Mel and I have such a similar aesthetic. It’s as if he can read my mind sometimes. I love his attention to detail and all that he does for every look. He is more than a stylist. He is an artist.” As a leading stylist, Ottenberg has also reinvented Cate Blanchett, Chloe Sevigny and James Franco’s looks.
I believe this is a great move for Rihanna because the US version of her show will bring a heavy amount of publicity. Rihanna is a fashion Icon around the world, so the contestants that will get the opportunity to dress her and other famous fashion icon’s like Kanye West and Katy Perry, have the chance of a lifetime. There are a number of questions left unanswered by RiRi about the upcoming US version of that show, however with fashion experts Mel Ottenberg and Erin Wasson aboard we know for sure the show will be a hit.
