CAST of Styl'D

Following on the heels of such shows as Glam God, The Rachel Zoe Project and Fashionista MTV has launched the next “I want to be a celebrity stylist when I grow up” TV show called Styl’D which premiered on Nov. 1st on MTV.

Five Junior Fashion Stylists have been selected to compete for a contract with the Margaret Maldonado Agency, one of North America’s most prominent agencies located in North Hollywood.  MMA represents some of the most sought after Wardrobe Stylists, Hair and Makeup Artists, Photographers and Fashion Designers.

Now let’s meet our cast of celebrity stylist wannabees in order of their current rankings:

1.  Tara –  The dark haired quirky one who works at Betsey Johnson in both the retail store and the LA showroom.  A 22 year old living in Orange County she is outspoken and idolizes Patti Smith, Courtney Love, and Axl Rose for their daring/dirty take on fashion.

2. Gary – Having studied fashion design at Parson’s and completed an internship at Men’s Vogue Gary has the knowledge to back up his innate sense of style.  Though often criticized for his “setiquette” by the senior stylists he has a vision and is focused on the task at hand.

3. Cody – Having a Mother who worked for Versace for 8 years among other fashion companies Cody was bred into the world of fashion.  He is the new kid on the block joining the cast in episode 2.  Despite his late arrival he is determined to show the senior stylists he is all work and here to win.

4.  Janna –  A student at Fashion Institute of Design and merchandising in Los Angeles she is the perky blonde valley girl who one day hopes to shop Rodeo Drive and leave her fashion moments at Forever 21 in the past.

5.  Brett – After accepting a styling gig for a musician following a photo shoot Brett was fired from the show.  He is now begging senior stylist Jen Rade to take him back.  With no formal training in styling this Kansas City  native makes ends meet working as a bartender.

Each week senior stylists Jen Rade, Julie Weiss and Eric Archibald take the junior stylists on a commercial or editorial shoot.  They hover and watch to see who has the qualities it takes to meet the physical and emotional challenges to be a superstar stylist.  The show is set to air eight episodes before the coveted contract is awarded but has already been moved out of primetime TV.

Do any of these young stylists have what it takes to be the next Rachel Zoe? For more information on the junior assistant program at MMA click here
