Rihanna is taking her TV show Styled To Rock to the US.
The We Found Love singer starred in Sky Living's UK version of the show earlier this year, in which aspiring designers were tasked with creating outfits for various celebrities.
Rihanna is now taking the show Stateside to the Style channel, where she will appear in and executive produce 10 hour-long episodes, the Hollywood Reporter revealed.
Salaam Coleman Smith, Style Media president said: "Rihanna is a trailblazer, a trendsetter and the epitome of style. She has a powerful and unique point-of-view that transcends every aspect of pop culture, including fashion, and is a leading creative force...
"Styled To Rock and Style's new partnership with Rihanna will reinvent the fashion competition genre, fuelling our viewers' insatiable appetite for all things style."
Fashion experts will mentor the competitors and big-name guests will help pick the winners of each challenge.
On the UK show, which had Nicola Roberts and Henry Holland as mentors/judges, winner Zainab Vandu-Chikolo got to see Rihanna wearing her creation as she performed at the Wireless Festival in London's Hyde Park.
