Fashion icon Diane von Furstenberg has a new reality show in the works. And while few details have been revealed about the upcoming series, including its to-be-announced name, a newly released casting call for it has us simply referring to it as Christmas Come Fucking Early.
Bypassing the overdone premises of America's Next Top Model and Project Runway, von Furstenberg's new show will be a "transformational docu-series for the millennial fashionista." In other words, a reality show about the makings (and probably dramatized breakings) of a DVF brand ambassador.
The show, which is set to shoot for two months in the spring of next year (according to Fashionista), will follow eight "smart and driven fashionista[s] who appear to be 20-25" as they experience the inner workings of one of the biggest names in fashion. This could potentially include: traveling to various fashion destinations, attending shows and store openings, crying about how their childhood dream was to work in fashion, crying about how hard it is to actually work fashion, and possibly some full-blown cat fighting (fingers crossed).
It should be noted that in order to apply, applicants don't necessarily have to be between the ages of 20 and 25, they just have to look it (sorry, Courtney Stodden). Also, like many things reality TV, formal education is not necessary but a sense of style and a strong interest in fashion is a must. To apply, check out the casting call below.
