Sky Living have announced the title and more details of the fashion show that Nicola has been working on with Henry Holland and Rihanna. It will be called ‘Styled To Rock‘.
Stylist Lysa Cooper completes line-up on our new fashion show.
Sky Living proudly confirms the final co-host who will complete the trio of mentors in Styled To Rock, the ambitious and much-anticipated new fashion series, executive-produced by style icon Rihanna.
With the panel of mentors personally hand-picked by Rihanna herself, Lysa Cooper has styled some of the superstar’s most striking and most talked about outfits and has worked closely with her for numerous years.
Lysa joins fashion designer Henry Holland and Girls Aloud’s Nicola Roberts, who created her own Dainty Doll make-up range, to co-host Styled To Rock, the new fashion project premiering this Summer exclusively on Sky Living.
Styled To Rock will celebrate the extraordinary talent and creativity in the British fashion scene, and search for the next generation of raw, undiscovered fashion designers. Over ten weeks twelve unknown designers personally selected by Rihanna, will be challenged by the mentors to create outfits for a string of A-list music artists to wear for a variety of occasions, including stage, shoots, high-profile events and more.
The show will ultimately recognise the increasing influence popstars have on mainstream fashion trends and provide an enviable springboard for the aspiring designer’s future fashion career.
Sky customers will be able to enjoy the series exclusively on Sky Living HD later this summer.
Nicola is set to host a brand new fashion show on Sky Living that will be looking for up and coming designers to get a foot in the door of the fashion world!
The finalists will be given the chance to explode into the fashion world by designing outfits for some of the biggest, most fashion forward stars in showbusiness, whilst working alongside some of the most respected names in the fashion world.

Sarah Harding joins Sky Living HD’s hit reality show Dating In The Dark for an all-new third series. We sat down with the Girls Aloud star to get her views on the show that takes blind dating to new extremes…
How did you get involved with Dating In The Dark?
In America they have their own presenter, so the producers wanted to make a bigger package here and asked if I was interested. I’d seen it and thought it’d be fun – it’s a much more interesting way of getting to know someone and it goes to show how shallow people really are. You get people who act like they’re married off, and then you get to the end of the show at the light reveal and they’re like “Oh…”.
Do you think people became less fixated on looks by the end of the show?
No. As soon as the lights came on people freaked out because the other person was the complete
opposite of what they’d expected. That day was always the weirdest because everyone was freaking out – like “Oh my god I thought she had dark hair; I told you I don’t like blondes!”.
Did you get annoyed by people’s reactions?
A few times I’d tell the boys “Don’t be so shallow!” One of them was like “I was expecting Miss England,
but I got Miss Salford.” They’re so picky and I’d say “What’s wrong with you, she’s gorgeous!” That’s why
they wanted me to get involved I think, because they knew I’d give the contestants a grilling. I think it’s
really funny – it’s great entertainment and I think it’s a reality check for them.
Are you normally a bit of a matchmaker?
I tell you what, I’ve become a real agony aunt since getting engaged and doing the show. I’m great at
giving advice, but I’m s**t at taking it!
