Rihanna to Star in U.K. Reality Series ‘Styled to Rock’ — Watch Preview (VIDEO)

Rihanna is about to experience her own British invasion when she executive produces and appears in the new U.K. fashion reality-competition series Styled to Rock, in which she will help mentor and guide up-and-coming designers.

The series will launch in August, and will run for 10 weeks on Sky Living HD. Along for the ride: Rihanna’s stylist, Lisa Cooper; fashion designer Henry Holland; and Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts.

In a preview clip released Thursday, fans are able to get a closer look at how things will run down — specifically Rihanna’s role on the series as it moves toward the big payoff: designing an outfit for one of the Grammy-winning artist’s live performances.

“I’ve always loved fashion,” she says in the clip. “Fashion has helped shape me into the artist that I am today.”

No word on whether Styled to Rock will make its way to America.

Following a recent visit and performance across the pond, Rihanna, 24, traveled back to her native country of Barbados to attend the wake of her grandmother. (More details here.)
