Houston, TX (PRWEB) August 07, 2012
The scope of reality television covers topics ranging from coupledom to crime, and in between these contrasts of love and war await an array of programs dedicated to the world of popular fashion. Every year, hopefuls intent on creating the next line of popular designer handbags or models vying for the chance to promote the latest trends by top designers Chanel or Gucci find a home on reality television. Today, Rodeo Drive Resale, online retailer of fashion designers Louis Vuitton, Hermes and more, takes a look at three shows packed with personality and luxury style.
1) Class Is In Session: On August 24, former Fendi and Yves Saint Laurent model Tyra Banks will premiere the 19th season of the popular series, America’s Next Top Model. The show, in which women compete for a chance at entering the modeling industry, is getting a fresh spin, as America's Next Top Model: College Edition will feature participants who have enrolled or completed some form of advanced education. In addition, the show will be more interactive, as fans of the show will be able to vote on their favorite model through social media.
2) Get Ready To Rock: Across the pond, Styled to Rock hits UK television later this month. The 10-part series, executive-produced by pop star Rihanna, chronicles a group of young British designers competing for a chance to create a stage outfit for 24-year-old singer. “I’ve always loved fashion,” Rihanna confessed in the show’s debut trailer. “Fashion has helped shape me into the artist that I am today.” The “Umbrella” singer will also offer nuggets of advice along the way, and will be joined on camera by Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts, British designer Henry Holland and stylist Lysa Cooper, who will serve as mentors to the 12 competitors.
3) There’s No Place Like Home: Returning to television on October 9 is House of Style, the popular fashion series which first premiered on MTV in 1989. During its 11-year run, the show highlighted notable designers such as Marc Jacobs, Chanel and Betsey Johnson as well as young stars that would go on to be major Hollywood players including Will Smith and Winona Ryder. Though the show has been gone for quite some time (it ended in 2000), it returned for a single episode in 2009, and MTV promises its 2012 reboot will offer viewers even more Style than its predecessor. “The idea of the new House of Style is that it runs on all of our platforms. MTV is a fully multi-media company. You'll see it on television, on the web, on our aps,” said Dave Sirulnick from MTV. “Not a lot of people are looking to consume 20-minute television shows on their phones. At least not yet. We want to make it really accessible for our audiences. Pieces will get windowed on to television, with the notion of the ability to a longer form programming style. The documentary is a long form piece.”
As Top Model unveils its latest season, Rihanna lends her talents to the small screen, and MTV revives one of its more popular shows among fashion lovers, fans of reality television should rest assured that, no matter which program they choose, they will be watching in style.
