TV Tonight: Stylista

Maybe it's a little bit of wish fulfillment or just my journalist nerdiness coming out, but I'll watch pretty much any show having to do with work at a newspaper or magazine. So when I first heard about Stylista, the new Tyra Banks-produced reality show that premieres on the CW tonight, I had a sense it might be right up my alley.

Stylista pits 11 aspiring magazine editors against each other as they perform various assistant tasks (think The Devil Wears Prada) and editorial assignments under the withering glare of Anne Slowey, a high-ranking Elle fashion editor. (Serious Project Runway fans may remember her as a guest judge in the early seasons.) In one episode, the wannabe editors have to give their personal style a makeover and then create a magazine page about it; in another, they're sent to Chinatown to find and write about a hidden gem.

I watched the first two episodes, and while Stylista follows the predictable format of today's ubiquitous "11 aspiring [insert profession here] compete at [insert tasks here]" shows, it's delightfully catty and pretty darn fun to watch. And if ever there was proof that casting is everything in the reality world, Stylista's it; by about 10 minutes into the first episode, I'd vowed to keep watching at least until my love-to-hate-her villain of choice is eliminated.

Do you think you'll give Stylista a shot? To watch a preview, just

I was sooo looking forward to this show... I want to write for a fashion mag like Elle one day, but this show was complete crap. It was sooooooooooo bad! Anne Slowey couldn't even walk in those heels she was wearing. Was it supposed to be SOO campy? It was awful. Truly awful.

i think that i'll watch it - eventually. it's probably going to go on my DVR since it's really not something that i can't live without - but i do love shows like this. i watched Fashionista on Bravo or We or Oxygen or whatever network it was on, so i'm kind of drawn to the sound of this one.
