Celebrity Style Story – TV Review

On Sunday, July 1 at 10:30 p.m. E! is launching a new celebrity fashion meets biography series called Celebrity Style Story. Each week a new celebrity’s fashion is┬ádissected by a panel of experts, chronologically revealing all of their hits, misses and memorable moments in their career.

The expert panel includes Joe Zee (Creative Director of Elle, who recently shared some style tips with us), Elle Canada’s Editor-in-Chief, Noreen Flanagan, Canadian fashion designers David Dixon, Shawn Hewson and Lucian Matis (read about his summer must haves), and celebrity hairstylist Matthew Collins.

In the premiere episode, the panel focuses on the multi-talented Jennifer Lopez, who got her start as a “Fly Girl” on In Living Color and now is a judge on American Idol. A decent portion of the episode addressed her famous low-cut green Versace dress, which makes sense since it’s what put her on the fashion map, as well as the famous pink engagement ring Ben Affleck gave her, but we felt they missed out on some of her music video fashions (velour tracksuit, anyone?) and hair (no real mention of those highlights that had every dark haired teen running to their hairdresser with a picture of J. Lo).

Those who don’t know much about a celebrity’s early career in the spotlight or would rather learn about a star via their style, this is a show for you. Other stars who are going to be featured on the series? Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, Angelina Jolie, Beyonce, Sarah Jessica Parker, Justin Bieber and many more.
