Contestants Endure Stereotypical Magazine Editor Stares On Stylista
October 24, 2008
Last night, Stylista premiered on the CW where the contestants compete for a junior editor spot at Elle magazine. In order to achieve that, they will live together, sleep in bunk beds (or on the couch as resident evil girl Megan decided to do), avoid sabotage, endure challenges that would make any temp quit, and see if they can make a good impression on Devil Wears Prada-esque Anne Slowey, the Fashion News Editor of Elle.
This show is so over the top, it's hilarious. The contestants' fashion choices are so funny, I almost dropped a glass of wine on the floor watching them. But what makes this a great show is the portrayal of the Elle staff with their withering stares and lack of smiling. When Anne was judging the first challenge where the contestants had to make her breakfast, they were so scared of Anne you could actually hear the trays rattling as she walked by.
I do enjoy Anne’s wardrobe, though. She had on a YSL necklace with a cluster of stars that I thought was great for her, but a little much for most of us. I would suggest stealing her style with this Graduated Star Bead Necklace ($15) or this Gold and Silver Star Necklace ($38).
