ARE THEY THE RIGHT FIT? ELEVEN FASHION STYLISTAS COMPETE FOR A HIGHLY-COVETED POSITION AT ELLE MAGAZINE

(Burbank, CA) The CW takes the fashion world by storm with new series “Stylista,” which premieres Wednesday, October 22 at 9:00 p.m. ET. Eleven determined fashionistas vie to prove themselves to Fashion News Director and Elle Accessories Editor Anne Slowey and Creative Director Joe Zee from Elle magazine. Each week, the contestants compete against each other by completing an assistant task and a fashion editorial assignment until only one is left standing to be the new Junior Editor at Elle magazine.

Each episode, in consultation with Joe, Anne fires one person, until the last assistant standing gets promoted to the coveted real-life job opportunity. 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.
