Rihanna is set to produce and appear on a fashion reality show “Styled to Rock” in the UK.
"I've always loved fashion," Rihanna says in the trailer of Styled to Rock, in which the fashion icon alongside her stylist Lysa Cooper and a panel of judges will watch and mentor twelve up and coming designers and stylists as they compete for their debut in the fashion industry.
The contestants handpicked by Rihanna will have the opportunity to design outfits for A-list celebrities every week, according to Vibe.

The panel includes fashion designer Henry Holland and Nicola Roberts of pop girl group Girls Aloud.
“Tasking Nicola with fronting the search, Rihanna will be heavily responsible for casting and will be involved in editing post-production,” the reality show’s website stated.
"Fashion has helped shape me into the artist that I am today,” said Rihanna.
The “We Found Love” singer is expected to temporarily live in the UK for filming.
"I have been very fortunate to work with some truly amazing designers and stylists throughout my career, and they have been instrumental in making sure my creative vision reaches the stage," Rihanna said in a press release.
"I am excited to follow the journey of our aspiring contestants and see how their individuality influences their efforts during the course of the show."
"I love both Rihanna's music and her style,” Nicola said.
“I love that she isn't afraid to try new things. Her style is personal and that's something I'm a fan of. You can see a genuine love for fashion in her. She is definitely one of my style icons."
The ultimate task for the winner of “Styled to Rock” is “to design a unique stage outfit for one of Rihanna's major live performances,” according to the website.
Styled to Rock will premiere on Sky Living HD in August.
