It’s that time of the year again! As the dust of the latest award show season settles, The Hollywood Reporter has once again compiled a list of Hollywood’s Most Powerful Stylists. If you ask me, this year, there was only one – Lupita Nyongo’s stylist Micaela Erlanger (third on HR’s list) killed it every single time, elevating her newcomer client’s profile and turning her into a style star. While Lupita Nyongo’s acting chops are obviously Oscar-worthy, it’s her impeccable style (as well as her stylist’s ability to score some major MAJOR brand names) is what a lot of people will remember about Lupita’s breakout year. There was that striking Ralph Lauren red cape, and the custom-made princess-perfect Prada at the Oscars, but in between, there was also a slew of memorable, stylish, bold, and interesting choices that both Nyong’o and Erlanger should feel really proud about. Those two are clearly at the top of their game, and are definitely the ones to watch!
Apart from Lupita and Micaela, The Hollywood Reporter profiled Kristen Stewart’s stylist Tara Swennen, the Fanning sisters’ stylist Samantha McMillen, Cate “the Great” Blanchett’s stylist Elizabeth Stewart, among others. As always, this is a fascinating read for those interested in the crazy game that is celebrity fashion. If you’re curious whether your favourite actress (or actor) dresses her/himself, then head on over to The Hollywood Reporter’s site for the full list.
