    The go-to stylist for Hollywood’s young trendsetters, Flannery likes to take risks, which boost her clients’ visibility from up-and-coming to have-arrived. She did it for Stone at the 2011 Golden Globes when she complemented her platinum locks for The Amazing Spider-Man with a peach fitted Calvin Klein gown (“the first dress ever designed just for me,” says Stone).

    Flannery’s favorite recent moment: the plunging wine-colored chiffon custom Lanvin that Stone wore with an eagle belt to the Globes. “Much like her personality, Emma is very fun and quick-witted with fashion,” says Flannery.

    The stylist put Saldana on the fashion map at the 2010 Oscars with a purple ombre, frothy-trained Givenchy; the actress then wowed at the SAGs in a white Givenchy beaded couture dress worn over a simple tank.
