When you are a celebrity, that too hailing from Hollywood, what you wear becomes a part of who you are. In an award show, in a meeting, in a party, on a stage or on a street, the frenzied paparazzi is always behind you, and you need to look no matter what. You have to be at your best. And for that you need help sometimes, or most of the times. So here are some people who help our favourite Hollywood celebrities, look their best every single time we see them.
Brandon Maxwell – Lady Gaga
Brandon Maxwell had a really great month, in March 2015. Not only did he make it onto The Hollywood Reporter’s list of the 25 most powerful stylists in Hollywood, but he’s also featured on the cover of the issue alongside client Lady Gaga. “With Lady Gaga, of course, you don’t really have to think about comfort,” says stylist Brandon Maxwell. “That’s not really the first thing that comes to her mind.”
Rushka Bergman- Michael Jackson
After meeting Michael Jackson on the set of his 2007 L’Uomo Vogue cover shoot with Bruce Weber, Bergman began to work as Jackson’s creative consultant and stylist, and the two became close friends. In addition to being his personal stylist, Bergman collaborated on his costumes for the This Is It concerts with haute couture designers Christophe Decarnin for Balmain.
Rachel Zoe- Jennifer Lawrence
A celebrity in her own right, Zoe boasts clients such as Hollywood’s most in-demand film actress, Jennifer Lawrence (who commands more than $10 million per Hunger Games movie and recently upped her Dior contract for another three years for a rumoured $15 million), and TV’s highest-paid actress, Sofia Vergara (who earned $30 million last year from Modern Family and endorsement deals with Cover Girl, Kmart and Diet Pepsi).
Elizabeth Stewart- Bullock, Roberts, Jessica Chastain, Amanda Seyfried
There’s power in numbers — and from the Cannes Film Festival to the Oscars, Stewart dressed ultra-A-listers Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock and Julia Roberts in 102 looks in total, with nary a fashion misstep.
PETRA FLANNERY-Adams, Danes, Stone, Sarah Paulson
She dressed two of this awards season’s majors: American Hustle‘s Amy Adams and Homeland‘s Claire Danes. But even with such high stakes, Flannery prefers not to play it safe, i.e., Emma Stone‘s love-it-or-hate-it Chanel separates at the Globes.
MICAELA ERLANGER- Nyong’o, Michelle Dockery, Olivia Munn
One Prada at a time, Erlanger took Hollywood newcomer Lupita Nyong’o from unknown actress to the one to watch on the red carpet — and landed her a major ad campaign with Miu along the way.
LESLIE FREMAR- Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon
Charlize, Reese, Julianne, Scarlett — she’s one of the few with enough first name-only clients to rival this year’s top stylist, Stewart. While Moore and Theron spent much of the year off the carpet, 2013′s most powerful stylist delivered high-impact looks with Witherspoon and Johansson.
JEANANN WILLIAMS- Naomi Watts, Liev Schreiber
With her eye for finding simple yet impactful dresses, she consistently delivers crowd-pleasing looks, including client (and sister-in-law) Naomi Watts‘ white, sparkly Calvin Klein at the Oscars.
ERIN WALSH- Kerry Washington, Sarah Jessica Parker, Maggie Gyllenhaal
“I love working with people who break the rules.”
Many of the stylists on THR‘s list are willing to take risks, but only Walsh has pushed the envelope with a pregnant client. Note Kerry Washington‘s baby bump-baring pink Prada crop top and high-waisted navy skirt at the SAG Awards (No. 20).
SOPHIE LOPEZ- Kate Hudson
A fresh entry on the Hollywood stylist scene, Lopez has made the most of her entrée by dressing Kate Hudson in a much- praised gown at Oscars 2014.
It’s all about the new and the different. Fashion is something all of us are affected by.
And the people who make our favourite stars look amazing and beautiful work really hard for it.
