After much hype, Tyra Banks’ new reality show, Stylista, finally premiered this week on the CW. The show features eleven slightly more stylish Anne Hathaways who must bend over backwards to win the approval of a Meryl Streep-like Anne Slowey, ala the Devil Wears Prada. And for what? The winner gets the coveted position of Junior Editor at Elle magazine — a role that we never saw prior on the masthead…`
We’re hoping the competitions get a little more cutthroat, relevant, and entertaining, because we really didn’t see a reason for any of the contestants to go home after last night’s “layout” challenge, and we think Anne’s elimination catch-phrase of “You’re not the right fit,” belongs on a show about making shoes instead of working for a fashion magazine. Nonetheless, we’ll be tuning in next week to find out who gets sent to the hospital after crumbling under the pressure to impress scary Slowey!
