The Hollywood Reporter has joined forces with luxury lifestyle brand Jimmy Choo to honor the 25 most powerful stylists in Hollywood.
To coincide with THR’s second annual list, the duo will co-host the inaugural 25 Most Powerful Stylists luncheon on March 14 in Los Angeles.
“This group of visionaries has an incredible influence on every look we see come down the red carpet,” says THR Editorial Director Janice Min. “We are thrilled to be recognizing them with the ultimate glamour partner, Jimmy Choo.”
The emergence of power stylist has been the culmination in recent years of the non-stop coverage of celebrity fashion. The dominated awards press has shifted from the even itself to the event of the red carpet dress. Designers and luxury brands understand that the stylist has the power to create headlines and the stylists featured on this list are the ultimate power brokers. Last year, Rachel Zoe topped THR’s list as the ultimate Hollywood tastemaker, followed by Kate Young and Petra Flannery, styling the likes of Natalie Portman and Emma Stone, respectively.
“Jimmy Choo has long been associated with red carpet dressing, and it is a privilege along with THR, to honor the stylists who have created some of the most memorable fashion moments for the brand,” says Dana Gers, SVP Global Communications, Jimmy Choo.
THR's annual 25 Most Powerful Stylists List ranks the most influential stylists working in Hollywood according to award show red carpet hits, number of nominees dressed, breakout style stars made and stylist’s personal brand building initiatives.
