    WHY THEY MATTER

    In addition to working with Jennifer Lopez and Gwen Stefani on red carpets, music videos, commercials and editorial, the duo also dresses TV’s most dangerous curves: Sofia Vergara’s and (new client alert) Kim Kardashian’s.

    THEIR NEW GETS

    Zangardi and Haenn, who met while working at MTV in New York in 2000, had an extraordinarily busy 2012. They started working with Stefani and No Doubt last spring and put together all of the band’s reunion tour looks, also styling the always trend-setting singer for the red carpet. The duo began working with Modern Family’s Vergara for awards season -- in addition to styling her Pepsi and CoverGirl ads. They’re responsible for Shakira’s upcoming wardrobe on The Voice, and they very recently landed E!’s most famous Kardashian (and her baby bump). “We’ve only dressed Kim for one event so far, but we’re really excited for this upcoming year with her,” says Haenn.

    THEIR TOP LOOK

    Lopez turned heads as only she can do in a sexy nude Zuhair Murad gown with embroidered white sequins at the Golden Globes. “The dress just fit her perfectly, and it was a great combination of modern and old Hollywood,” says Haenn. “It looks like a complicated dress, but it was very easy for her to wear.”

    MEGAWATT MOMENTS

    “We like to go big or go home when it comes to our diamonds!” says Zangardi. Vergara dazzled in $8 million worth of Lorraine Schwartz jewels at the Globes, while Lopez rocked in $5 million worth of Norman Silverman jewels at the Grammys. “Jennifer wore a 50-carat diamond ring on American Idol last year, and the ring sold the following day to someone who was watching,” he adds.

    BEYOND THE RED CARPET

    They’re creative consultants for Lopez’s new perfume, Forever Glowing (her 19th fragrance), as well as her line for Kohl’s that includes everything from apparel to accessories to home goods to swimwear and luggage. Zangardi and Haenn also have dabbled in design, creating an “I Love Me” ring exclusively for L.A.’s Maxfield boutique that was spotted on Lopez, Stefani and Rihanna, and they’re developing a line of fine jewelry that’s slated to come out this year.
