Hollywood Reporter Names 25 Most Powerful Stylists List
About a year ago, Vergara’s team was on the hunt for someone who could confidently dress her voluptuous figure. Enter Waknin: “I do curvy women really well. I like women with women’s bodies. Most stylists don’t know how to deal with curves.”
Waknin put Vergara in a one-shoulder coral Vera Wang at the Emmys, a draped raspberry Marchesa at the SAGs and a showstopping midnight-blue Vera Wang fishtail gown at the Golden Globes. “That was a big, big hit for us,” says Waknin.
A former stylist for Maybelline, Apple, Revlon and Hanes TV commercials, Waknin segued into red-carpet styling with Eric Bana and Kevin Spacey. With her female clients, she’s known for her fit, starting with Berry’s iconic lavender Valentino dress in 1996 and most recently with Bullock’s Oscar gown, a blouse-top, sheath-bottom Marchesa.
