Who dresses the stars in Hollywood?
From Julia Robert to Madonna via Scarlett Johansson, who decides which outfits the stars will wear on the red carpet? No, it’s not the celebrities themselves but stylists who know exactly which outfit will cause a sensation.
Although we like to think that the Hollywood stars tread the red carpet in incredible dresses that they themselves have selected, the reality is quite different. Each celebrity worthy of the name has indeed a team of stylists behind her who composes their evening outfits, from pumps to the minaudière through the princess dress. Without these experts, the looks of Julia Roberts, Charlize Theron or Julianne Moore may be less incredible than they are at each ceremony.
The importance of these dressers is such that each year, the Hollywood Reporter establishes the ranking of the 25 most influential stylists among celebrities. But we’re going to talk about only three stylists who can represent what can be called a sense of Hollywood.
1. Leslie Fremar, the most essential
She is one of Hollywood’s most sought-after fashion gurus. Among the clients of Leslie Fremar are Charlize Theron, Julianne Moore, Scarlett Johansson and Reese Witherspoon whose dress at the last Oscars ceremony has been engraved in our memories.
2. Petra Flannery, the coolest
Petra Flannery dresses that cool girls – Zoe Saldana, Claire Danes, Mila Kunis – for their appearances on red carpet, combining classic elegance and edgy touches. She had the great idea to bring this Lanvin suit to Emma Stone during the last Golden Globes.
3. Kate Young, the red carpet superwoman
Kate Young is the stylist who chained the most beautiful red carpet looks by dressing including Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz or Natalie Portman. Not hesitating to parry the stars of flamboyant red dresses, it has allowed Jemima Kirke to stand out at the last CFDA Awards.
Hopefully this article can enlighten you on who is behind the scenes of Hollywood fashion grandeur.
