A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

Styled by June underscores the idea that taking a thoughtful approach to a problem ensures success. There's quite a bit of celebrity worship here, though, plus some typical reality show bickering.

Positive Role Models & Representations

June Ambrose presents herself as a driven, thoughtful, and kind person. She's intuitive about her clients' needs and tackles problems with gusto.

Violence

Arguments and catty conversations between assistants.

Sex

Some clothing is revealing or suggestive. Occasional innuendo (i.e. "My nipples are getting hard!" to express excitement).

Language

Fully bleeped swear words including "s--t" and "f--k." Words like "pissed" are audible.

Consumerism

Ambrose's job is to revamp her celebrity clients' image, which involves dressing them in designer fashions, many of which are named on the show.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Some social drinking, but not to excess.

What 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.
