You might wonder where a celebrity got a hat, a shoe or a dress. But where did that celebrity get it. And by it we mean that thing – the unmistakable gravitas that’s an amalgamation of good fashion, good marketing and talent (sometimes). According to Tyrone Edwards, a panelist from the show Celebrity Style Story (Season 2 premieres August 31 on E! at 10:30 p.m. ET)it’s something celebs grow into. It can also require one good stylist, but not an overly eager one. The show itself, for the unfamiliar, is a panel discussion about a celebrity’s fashion choices. Sound familiar?

Tyrone Edwards believes this red Calvin Klein dress worn in 2012 to the Academy Awards was JLaw’s style turning point.

When we asked Edwards about the show, and its obvious comparison to the show Fashion Police, he was quick to remind us they are not the same show. “I feel like Fashion Police is more critical and almost more mean, catty and what-not,” he tells us. “We’re sort of looking at the facts — if you wear this haute couture gown, is it event-appropriate, is it timeless?”

And because the show chronicles a star’s trajectory from humble beginnings to today, there’s less of that feeling of “attacking” celebrities like you might find on other shows. There are opinions, sure, but since there’s a lot of ground to cover, it doesn’t feel mean-spirited. “We’re not talking about rules – these are considerations,” Edwards adds.

consideration

To give you an idea of what a consideration might be, we refer you to this gem from our conversation with Edwards: “I honestly believe that no one at a certain level should wear a kitten heel or white leather boots. Leave those for the children,” Edwards tells us. There isn’t a rule in place, like “don’t wear white boots after Labour Day,” because it’s merely a personal consideration. (And something for you to consider.) And really, Edwards doesn’t even care if you do wear white boots or kitten heels, because these considerations are merely his own thoughts when it comes to fashion and you can honestly take ’em or leave ’em.

And that’s what makes this show kind of real. Edwards and his panel’s “considerations” are akin to what you’d say among your friends. In a way, it’s like inviting pals to your house after finding a mysterious box in your attic. Once you’ve opened the trove, you comb through the old photographs and determine where it all went wrong (or right). It’s exactly like that, except memory lane is every style moment a celebrity has ever made.

You can catch the show on Mondays at 10:30 p.m. on E!. And we highly recommend it, because one of Edwards’ favourite style moments in history is Barbra Streisand wearing Arnold Scaasi in 1968 at the Oscars. And, well, it’s Barbra, and we wouldn’t trust anyone who hated that look. (Or her.)
