A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
There's a lot of competition and rivalry here, but the series does underscore the importance of professionalism and other skills necessary in the styling field.
Positive Role Models
The featured stylists were chosen based on their talent, but some of them demonstrate sneaky behavior, including one assistant who underhandedly gets special clothes for a client. Other assistants crack under pressure and/or have problems with job expectations.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
Stylists choose clothes designed to make their clients look "sexy" at award shows and publicity events, etc. The assistants, models, and clients are occasionally seen standing in their underwear.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this fashion-centric reality series about up-and-coming junior stylists features some catty, sneaky behavior as the stylists vie for a prized contract with an L.A. agency. But the cast members also learn lessons about professionalism, working with clients, and dealing with pressure. Expect some salty language (though words like "f--k" and s--t" are bleeped) and occasional drinking, plust lots of references to/appearances by fashion brands like Betsey Johnson and magazines like Vogue.
Is It Any Good?
Styl'd offers an interesting look at what goes into helping celebrities create an image and/or dress for the media. It also has some important lessons about professionalism, company loyalty, and demonstrating proper "settiquette" (appropriate behavior on a set or at a client's home). Overall the content is pretty mild, but you should still expect some of the signature drama and catty behavior that these types of reality shows are known for. Still, fashion-loving teens will probably enjoy the show's focus on clothes -- as well as the parade of celebrities who wear them.
Did we miss something on diversity?
