Rihanna has signed on to star in Styled to Rock, a new Style Network reality competition that challenges designers to create outfits for a group of celebrities, Reuters reports. The series is an offshoot of a British show with the same name, which Rihanna appeared on over the summer

Premiering in the second half of 2013, Rihanna will handpick 12 up-and-coming designers who will dress a different guest celebrity on each episode, with the guest helping to determine who stays and who goes home.

"Fashion has always played an integral part in my life and career," said Rihanna in a statement. "I am so excited to partner with Style Network and share my creative insight with these 12 designers and give them this opportunity to showcase their work." 

While Rihanna will also act as executive producer, there's no word yet on who will host the show or which fashion experts will guide the contestants.
