Esteemed art adviser Greenberg Jeanne Rohatyn won’t be the only fashion plate on Bravo’s new reality competition series, “Work of Art.” The show’s host, model-actress China Chow, had wardrobe working overtime to source a steady stream of fashion-forward, not-ready-for-prime time getups.

“The idea was to wear things that made sense for what the contestants’ assignment was that week, thought that didn’t always work out,” says the 36-year-old, who managed to squeeze a staggering 21 costume changes into 10 episodes.

Unsurprisingly, the network had an opinion about Chow’s clothes as well. “I asked for wardrobe approval in my contract but didn’t get it,” says the host, who had to get each ensemble OK’d by the show’s producers before arriving on set. “But I totally understand because what if I was a bit of a nut and showed up one day with a giant Dr. Suess hat?”
