BEHIND ALL THE GREAT STYLING


"The term stylist didn't come into vogue until mid 1990s", stated in Forbes.
Hollywood actresses and singers couldn't live without their stylist. They don't need a magic wounds, they need a magic hand of their stylist. To be recognized and to have their own signature style, stylists help their artists to be confident when they go on the red carpet. Recently, The Hollywood Reporter made a full spread of 25 most powerful stylist.

Kate Young

If her first word was 'shoe' it is obvious that she was born to be in the fashion world. 
Not to outdone Prabal Gurung but Kate Young is going to debut her own clothing line for Target in April 14 '13. Her collection for Target is perfect for spring, from clothes to accessories, and also strapy sandals!
She was named #1 powerful stylist by The Hollywood Reporter in 2012 and staying in top 5, this year she is in #4. Working with the greatest actresses in Hollywood such as Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, and Natalie Portman (she has been working with Portman for 10 years and still counting)!
She absolutely made her mark in the fashion industry when she started her career in Vogue, where many people can only dream of. Assisting Anna Wintour and styled the very first Teen Vogue cover.
Knowing her magical hands, a lot of designers work with her for their fashion shows, Derek Lam, Jason Wu for his Target collection (not only that, Young started styling his shows 6 years ago until now!), Nina Ricci, and Naeem Khan.
 Her ability to maintain great relationship with her clients help her to where she is now, besides from her hard work.
She is one of my biggest inspiration! Check out her Q&A on the New York Times Magz

Who are your favorite designers and why?
I love Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy — he’s so talented and so cool. I really love Erdem in London; he’s like the Jason Wu of Europe. He designs really beautiful, hopeful clothes. And I really like Phoebe Philo at Céline.

How would you describe your personal style?
Edgy classics. One time in New York Magazine I described it as ‘Mommy drinks.’ Maybe it’s not as funny now that I have kids, but still true. 

What should every woman have in her closet?
One dress that makes you feel good. It would be easy to say something in particular, like a little black dress, but that’s not right for everybody. If you’re a potter and you live in Woodstock, a black dress is dumb. I think everyone should have one outfit that they feel their best in.

Leslie Fremar



She said it herself, that her inspirations comes from Bloggers!!! Coming out as #1 most powerful stylist Fremar began her career as Anna Wintour assistant at the American Vogue. She made more than one iconic looks on the red carpet and style Hollywood actresses such as Julianne Moore and Charlize Theron.
 She was born in Toronto Canada, and finishes her University in Ontario then spent a year in FIT New York.

She has been using the brand Fruit of the Loom since high school and in 2011 she got the opportunity to create a collection of her own. The t-shirts, and tanks tops can be found in Bloomingdale's shelves across the United States.

Check out her interview while she was putting Monique on Reese Witherspoon, one of her client.

Why are most t-shirts so expensive these days?
Probably because they believe it will make them seem more desirable—and designer. But I don't agree!

What is your favorite way to wear these?
I love wearing the tanks under a blazer, and I wear the t-shirt with jeans or a skirt. The racerback is my version of the men's ribbed tank. I wear it under almost anything! 

She started with these three options but now she added long sleeves shirts, a few dresses, and leggings to her collection. Which will be available online this April!

Imagine you work with AH-MAZING fashion icons in the world, but for Zangardi (right) and Haenn  (left) they don't have to imagine it anymore. It's their job to style Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Ciara, Shakira, Gwen Stefani, Lily Collins, and another sizzling hot mama, Sofia Vergara. They recently talk about their favorite Jimmy Choos on E!.
Landing in number 8 on The Hollywood Reporter most powerful stylist, they have their fine jewellery line that were seen on Lopez, and Rihanna

Check on their interview, HERE

Q. What are your high street favourites for a day time look?
A. We love For Love & Lemons’ edgy, boho vibe. Paprika, TFNC and Rare London also have some pieces which will instantly transform your day time look – all you need to do is mix them into your existing wardrobe. The collections are really affordable too – plus you won’t see anyone else wearing them!

Right now, it’s all about the subtle edginess. If you’re into this then you’ll  also love the Mynita bracelets (think tiny gold skulls and studded leather wrap bracelets), or  Lexx Perry’s brightly coloured studded cuffs, all available at Souqfashion.com.

We also love over-sized kimonos which look great when paired with distressed denim and black ankle booties (we’re excited to see Siwy denim in stock at Souq Fashion).  Also, if you like a peplum, Renee London has a cool assortment of peplum looks – try a peplum skirt with your business shirt for an up to date day time look.  We love the color blocking and bold twists in this collection.

Paper Crown by Lauren Conrad is perfect for injecting a little Hollywood glamour into your look. We’ll take pieces from Paper Crown and mix them with edgy accessories or leather pants for a glamorous, yet rocker look.

And another interview HERE when they were both in Cannes, France styling Rachel McAdams in red lace and nude tulle Marchesa gown!
