  1. 75
    The show is a lot of fun. Like playing dress-up when you were a kid--and about as realistic.
  2. 75
    Still, like the second season of “Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style,” which is airing now on Bravo, this show may work for you if you’re looking for a turn-off-your-brain escape.
  3. Stylista, which begins on Wednesday on CW, is selling itself as “The Devil Wears Prada” in reality-television form. But it may even surpass its predecessor as a treatise on the empty ambition and distaste for civility that girds so much of Seventh Avenue.
  4. 60
    Stylista is--what is the phrase?--like a little tick that you want to flick off, but it's no worse than other reality games that have come before and will come after.
  5. A competition to find a junior editor for Elle magazine, where Slowey is fashion news editor, differs from a two-hour drama in enough ways so the TV show doesn't have quite the same charm. It's fun. Just not as much.
  6. Except in the decorative details, it is exactly the same as every other gimme-a-job reality show ever made, with the contestants all banged up in a fancy dormitory from which they disappear one by one after themed weekly challenges.
  7. 25
    Gratuitously cruel and mind-numbingly dull, Stylista pretends to be "fashion forward" while it apes everything that has gone before.
