We're less than a month away from the series premiere of Elle's fashion-assistant reality show, Stylista. The CW has decided to tantalize us by releasing the names and stats of the contestants on the show. They range in age from 22 to 28 and in occupation from "China Military Analyst" to "Legal Secretary at Kirkland and Ellis LLP." And then there's Cologne.
Hometown: Newport Beach, CA
Current Location: New York, NY
Occupation: Recent college graduate with dreams of starting own clothing company “Oh de Cologne,” getting novel published and modeling. Thesis is on Fashion
Fashion Icons/Designers: Sienna Miller, Edie Sedgwick, Kate Bosworth, Twiggy
YES. Oh, he sounds so spiffy we're already bouncing in our seats. And what, pray tell, did Cologne and Johanna, the 28-year-old China military analyst, leave it all behind for? The grand prize, of course.
The grand prize includes a paid editorial position at Elle magazine, a paid lease on a great apartment in Manhattan, and a clothing allowance at H&M, all for one year, valued at $100,000.
They forgot to mention the incomparable glamour.
