Meet Your 'Stylista' Fashionistas

If one reality star has her way, you'll soon be wearing "Oh de Cologne."

A 22-year-old college grad named Cologne is just one of the 11 hopefuls who are vying to win the coveted position of Junior Editor at Elle magazine on the reality competion show "Stylista," which premieres on The CW on Wednesday, Oct. 22 at 9 pm ET/PT.

Giving Cologne a run for her money are Dyshaun, who lists Mary-Kate Olsen as one of his fashion icons, and Johanna, a China military analyst. Each week the "Stylista" participants will compete against each other to do an assistant task and a fashion editorial assignment in order to impress Fashion News Director and Elle Accessories Editor Anne Slowey and Creative Director Joe Zee from Elle magazine.

One by one, the wannabes will be eliminated until the last fashionista standing will nab the job, a paid lease on a Manhattan apartment and a clothing allowance at H&M, all for one year.
