BRAVO MEDIA PREMIERES "STYLED TO ROCK" WITH EXECUTIVE PRODUCER ROBYN "RIHANNA" FENTY AND CELEBRITY MENTOR PHARRELL WILLIAMS OCTOBER 25 AT 8PM ET/PT

New Reality Competition Series Features Celebrity Guests: Kid Cudi, Miley Cyrus, Carly Rae Jepsen, Khloé Kardashian, Kylie Minogue, Kelly Osbourne, The Band Perry, Naya Rivera, Big Sean, Nervo and Ne-Yo

NEW YORK - September 30, 2013 - Bravo Media combines its passion points of Fashion and Pop Culture in "Styled to Rock," executive produced by multi-Grammy Award winner and fashion icon Rihanna, premiering Friday, October 25 at 8pm ET/PT. This new reality competition series gives 12 up-and-coming designers, hand-picked by the superstar herself, the opportunity to become America's next trendsetting designer. Grammy Award-winning music producer Pharrell Williams, international model Erin Wasson and Rihanna's personal stylist, Mel Ottenberg will mentor these contestants as they push their creative boundaries to the max. Each week, the designers will be presented with a different challenge, each aimed at creating a new look to define the celebrity guest's image, and in turn battle it out in the sewing room. However, only half of the contestants selected by the mentors will get to showcase their new design for the client and have a shot at winning. The other half will be placed up for elimination. The stakes are high because the grand prize is life-changing: $100,000 cash, a fashion feature in Glamour magazine and the chance to become the next member of Rihanna's design team.

Her low-key and free-spirited sense of style has inspired many, and Erin served as muse, and then stylist, for CFDA Award winner and designer Alexander Wang.
