Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Styled to Rock is a reality competition featuring designers creating edgy, iconic looks for popular singers. There's lots of fashion talk, but the focus is equally on styling an artist's image as on designing and sewing. It contains some occasional rough vocabulary and a few stress-induced arguments among designers. There are references to the Billionaire Boys Club clothing line, and the Los Angeles-based Michael Levine fabric store is featured. Teen fashion and music lovers will be able to handle it, but it's not meant for younger tweens.
Is It Any Good?
Styled to Rock offers some unique insight into what it takes to be a designer for musical artists, including being able to understand the aesthetic of the artist while recognizing that an artist's look must match her or his sound. Designers also must be able to blend the world of fashion and music to create iconic looks that are part costume and part trendsetting.
It's entertaining, but much of the show revolves around the opportunity to work with famous celebs and land a job with Rihanna's team -- a position that's touted as being more valuable than the cash prize. But the focus also is on showcasing undiscovered talent. The result is a show that will appeal to teens and adults who find fashion and celebrity entertaining.
