Rihanna is turning from chart-topper to TV executive with a new show to find a top fashion designer.
The What's My Name singer will produce and appear in the unnamed show, the winner of which will create an outfit for her headline appearance at this summer's Wireless Festival in London.
Girls Aloud star Nicola Roberts - who has previously launched her own make-up range - will front the series, to be screened by Sky Living.
Promising designers will be challenged over the course of 10 weeks to create outfits for musicians and celebrities.
The channel said: "The chance to dress one of the world's most famous women for an event that will attract worldwide coverage is the perfect springboard for the aspiring designer's future fashion career."
Rihanna said: "I am excited to follow the journey of our aspiring contestants and see how their individuality influences their efforts during the course of the show."
