Have you ever wondered how celebs end up choosing what to wear to those big award shows and movie premieres? Well, for the most part, you should praise (or blame) their stylist.The latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter features the 25 Most Powerful Stylists, photographed with some of their famous celeb clients, and I am both fascinated and obsessed.

Not surprisingly, the top stylists like Leslie Fremar (clients: Julianne Moore, Charlize Theron, Scarlett Johansson), Petra Flannery (clients: Emma Stone, Zoe Saldana, Mila Kunis, Megan Fox, Claire Danes), Rachel Zoe (clients: Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Hudson), Kate Young (Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, Natalie Portman), and Elizabeth Stewart (clients: Jessica Chastain, Amanda Seyfried, Cate Blanchett, Frieda Pinto) all have lengthy roasters of A-list celebs eager to be dressed by these talented and savvy pros.

For me, however, this year’s Most Awesome Stylist Award (just made it up) goes to Erin Walsh (#9 on the list), who dressed Kerry Washington on this year’s award and premiere circuit – hitting it out of the ballpark with every single outfit. “I feel like Erin and I are fashion twins that were separated at birth. We definitely like to think outside the box,” shared Washington with the magazine.

This article did make me wonder what those “uber-stylish” celebs would wear without the help of their trusted stylists. Would Cate Blanchett wear socks and sandals? Would Zoe Saldana wear leggings as pants? Can you imagine? The horror!

Independent Spirit Awards 2013: Green with Envy

kerry-washington-giambattista-valli-spirit-awards-2013

Even though Indie Spirit Awards are the last award stop before the Oscars, both Kerry Washington and Zoe Saldana brought their A-game to the pink carpet. Kerry in a beautiful Giambattista Valli Couture floral dress, matching shoes, and lovely fresh makeup, looked super radiant. For someone who’s mostly on TV these days, Kerry sure does have a great stylist with access to beautiful clothes. I’ve been loving her red carpet choices lately, and can’t wait to see what she wears this Sunday.

Zoe Saldana also wore green, but instead of floral, she went for a chic wide-striped Dolce & Gabbana dress. And though I would probably add some statement earrings or a necklace to this look, I think those white pumps were a pretty kick-ass accessory.

What do you think of Kerry’s and Zoe’s looks? Which leading lady wore green best? Share in the comments.

The Met’s Costume Institute Gala 2010: Best

Wow, with the exception of Coco Rocha’s Zac Posen aqua-delic gown, my other Best Dressed picks are all solids. Oh my! And while I do believe that it’s best to be brave for an event like the Met’s Gala, I cannot help but be drawn and inspired by these ladies (and gentleman). It is my Best Dressed list, after all, so please don’t hate me too much if we don’t see eye to eye.

Rocha’s Zac Posen gown is absolutely beautiful! I think it was a brave pick and I love Coco for it! My all-time fave Diane Kruger in Calvin Klein and her cute boyfriend Joshua Jackson both sizzled on the red carpet, and though her dress is very similar to the one Ashley Olsen wore last year, I think Diane makes it look fresh for 2010 with her minimalistic hair and accessories.

Kerry Washington in Thakoon for Gap looked red-hot, while Rachel Weisz in custom Oscar de la Renta looked so pretty and radiant – I had to include her in the lineup! And finally, Zoe…looking statuesque and gorgeous in her one-shouldered Calvin Klein gown – simplicity never looked better.

Do you agree with my picks? Do you think they are too safe? Sound off in the comments. Next up – the bold and the brave of the Met’s 2010 Gala!

Style Fille: Zoe Saldana

Ahh, Zoe! She always looks elegant with just the right amount of edge in her outfits! Love this Lanvin dress, love the color on her, and also love the leopard print clutch she chose to go with her dress. Unfussy hairdo completes her simple, yet striking ensemble. Wish I could just slink into a Lanvin piece for a night…so feminine, so beautiful…so unattainable at the moment. Le sigh.

Oscars 2010: Best Dressed

Ruffles, and Notten, and Kruger, oh my! It wasn’t too tough to choose my fave four ladies on the Oscars red carpet last night, since so many actresses opted for pretty, but safe gowns, that only elicited a reaction of “meh” from me and my. Not so with these four ladies. My favorite of the night was Vera Farmiga’s ruffly fuchsia frock. Ruffles are tricky, and not everyone can pull them off without looking overpowered, but Farmiga managed to look fresh, stunning, and definitely not safe or meh. Finally, someone with a bit of imagination and guts on the red carpet!

The same can be said about Maggie Gyllenhaal. The aquatic print, the streamlined cut, the pink lips – it all adds up to an outfit that could look all sots of bad on a wrong person, but on Maggie it’s perfection (if only slightly too wrinkled for my taste). I loved her Dries Van Notten abstract print dress the moment I saw it!

It took me a bit longer to love Diane Kruger’s Chanel Haute Couture pick. The midsection ruffles appeared to look distracting at first, but the confidence with which she wore it, and the gorgeous back of her dress, made me love it the more I saw it! I’ve mentioned before that Diane doesn’t have a stylist, and on this occasion (as with many others), I fully support her gown choice! Plus, Lucky Magazine, reported that Kruger did her own makeup for the big night! How cool is that? I think she did a great job!

My final best dressed pick is Zoe Saldana. Saldana’s Golden Globes dress was not a safe choice, and neither is her Oscars Givenchy gown. It’s pouffy, with a bejeweled bodice, and with what looks like pom-poms all over the train of her skirt, but the color looks fantastic with her complexion, the “pom-poms” look fun and intricate, and I happen to love the blingy neckline. It’s fun to look at, and I am sure it was fun to wear!
