A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The series shows some of the challenges that come with trying to build a career in the fashion styling business, but there's a big focus on dramatic personal relationships. The importance of having professional and personal supportive relationships is also highlighted.
Positive Role Models
Brad and Gary are in a supportive, loving relationship. References are made about Rachel Zoe's public accusations about Brad's business ethics, but the issue isn't really addressed.
Violence & Scariness

Products & Purchases

Publications like US Weekly, Details, and Paper Magazine and online shopping sites like Gilt Groupe are featured. Apple computers, Skippy peanut butter, and other logos are sometimes visible but aren't prominently displayed. L.A. businesses and venues like Physique 57 are sometimes shown.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Drinking (wine, champagne, cocktail) is visible over meals and at social functions.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this fashion reality show spin-off has lots of strong language (the strongest is bleeped) and sexual innuendo (including some crude references). There are also lots of references to designers like Ralph Lauren, Versace, Prada, etc.; fashion and tabloid magazines; and online shopping resources like the Gilt Group. The star's relationship with his same-sex partner is also central to the show. Drinking (wine, champagne, cocktails) is visible over meals and during social functions. Brief references are made to conflicts between Goreski and Rachel Zoe, but this isn't discussed in detail.
Is It Any Good?
The series offers a personal and voyeuristic look at the work that goes into building a name for yourself in fashion styling. It highlights how working in the fashion industry requires a business sense as much as it does a knowledge of designers and trends. It also underscores how someone who has years of experience in the business still has to work hard and take risks in order to be successful on his or her own.
Like most series of this kind, the show has its fair share of relationship conflict, as well as lots of promotional references. But unlike The Rachel Zoe Project, the series is more about building a business than promoting a fashion line. Goreski's colorful personality (and his outfits) make the show fun, too. If you're looking for some lighthearted fashionista drama, this show will probably fit the bill.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
