does this work?

' Work with the current active cell.
    Dim currentCell As Excel.Range = Me.Application.ActiveCell

'create a style on thw workbook
Dim style As Excel.Style = Globals.ThisWorkbook.Styles.Add("NewStyle")
'assign the style of cell to the style created
style = currentCell.Style

now you can reference the "style" on any other cell.
from another part in code
' Work with the current active cell.
    Dim currentCell As Excel.Range = Me.Application.ActiveCell
currentCell.Style = "NewStyle"
