THR Ranks Hollywood's 25 Most Powerful Stylists
WHY SHE MATTERS
Pole puts Keira Knightley in truly high-fashion looks that are hard to pull off yet, in the stylist’s able hands, look effortless. She has the vision and the clout to put new and unknown designers on the map.
HER TOP LOOK
Pretty much every outfit from the couture-packed Anna Karenina worldwide premieres and press tour, including Chanel, Valentino and Elie Saab. Pole does have special affection for the mint-green embroidered dress (with pockets) that Erdem custom-designed for Knightley to wear to the film’s Los Angeles opening. “Keira looked beautiful and felt comfortable wearing it -- the ultimate feat,” says Pole.
LABELS SHE LOVES
Pole tends to favor new talent; her current obsession is London-based Simone Rocha. She’s also a fan of designers that perfectly balance “modernity and femininity,” such as Christopher Kane and Balenciaga, but declares that Celine is her “ultimate addiction.”
BEYOND THE RED CARPET
The Brit, who studied at Central Saint Martins and worked at magazines before becoming a stylist, continues to collaborate with British Harper’s Bazaar and a few international editions of Vogue.
