A reality rivalry series extending to an employment opportunity at a style magazine? Truly? What, was half-interest in a buggy-whip production line inaccessible? In any case, assuming that projecting is a large portion of the fight in the unscripted universe, this blend of “Task Runway” and “The Apprentice: Devil Wears Prada Edition” benefits from its decision of busybody competitors, from the ruined rich young lady to the heavy lady to the enthusiastic diva with hurling cleavage. Think of them as the redeeming quality to the CW’s most recent “America’s Next Top Model” buddy whose idea is in any case, as, so last year.Eleven wannabes strive for a lesser supervisor spot at Elle magazine, which accompanies a dress stipend and a Manhattan condo. Fortunately, the central participants immediately disdain one another, or if nothing else are savvy to the point of realizing they’ll get more broadcast appointment assuming they act that way. Tears stream so openly one feelings of trepidation the competitors are trying out for a spin-off of “The Hills.”
The Elle editors who will decide the candidates’ destiny, as well, have obviously read up for their jobs, playing the “Prada”- esque, peer down-the-nose routine as far as possible. The tasks (or difficulties, on the off chance that you like) used to assess the players and get rid of them astutely tap into two disciplines — both design and news-casting, accepting anyone is keen on that old dinosaur.
The up-and-comers, for instance, should initially plan their own suitable “look,” then, at that point, sort out a method for introducing it that would be fitting to run inside the pages of the magazine. Get ready for faint applause and a lot of shriveling gazes that would do Meryl Streep and Stanley Tucci glad.
Considering that the show comes from the “Top Model” group, the smooth embellishments and creation style shouldn’t be totally astonishing; still, this sort is so packed the present moment (Bravo’s “Runway” knockoffs alone are essentially staggering over one another) that the possibilities appear to be intrinsically restricted.
Toss a bouquet, then, at that point, stringently to the projecting people for the grouping of types they’ve gathered. Past that, “Stylista” qualifies as savage, to get maker Tyra Banks’ diction, just in its undaunted obligation to duplicating the standard, worn out models.
