Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Styled by June is relatively mild but does include typical reality show bickering, including some bleeped language ("f--k" and "s--t"). Expect occasional social drinking and sexual innuendo, too. The show's main focus is on revamping celebrity images and style, so consumerism and designer fashion are major themes. June is a powerful businesswoman who seems compassionate and highly competent.
What's the story?
Celebrity stylist June Ambrose dresses stars for the red carpet and beyond. Along the way, she revamps the public's perceptions of these celebs -- from Mischa Barton to Miami rap artist Trina -- and also tries to provide retail therapy. At her side are her trusty assistants, Eli Wasserman, Rachel Heller, and Tukie Bambumba.
Is it any good?
Ambrose is a compelling character and a great role model for girls interested in business and fashion. As a major force in the world of style, she's a self-made woman whose 20-year career speaks for itself. STYLED BY JUNE offers a thorough look at the ins and outs of her daily responsibilities as a celebrity stylist.
That said, Styled by June indulges in many of the same tired reality show shenanigans we're all more than used to by now: melodramatic bickering, inflated problems, and unbelievable conversations all vie for camera time. June also fancies herself a therapist of a sort and occasionally talks celebs down from fits of fame and fashion anxiety. But when the show sticks to the details of Ambrose's job and focuses less on the celebrity angle, it's fun eye candy.
