WHY SHE MATTERS
She continues to dress some of the town’s most savvy actresses, including Penelope Cruz and Tina Fey, while putting new talent on fashion’s radar.

HER NEW GETS
“Alison Brie and Greta Gerwig were New Year’s presents — I started working with them in December,” says Ehrlich, who also joined forces with The Wolf of Wall Street Australian actress Robbie at that time. “The first thing she did was offer me a beer,” recalls Robbie. “I love working with Mama C.”
HER TOP LOOK
Robbie’s Gucci gown featuring emerald-colored gems at the Globes (No. 18) made several best-dressed lists and marked the pair’s first red carpet. Says Ehrlich: “The look was modern Hollywood glam. Sexy, but not over-the-top, and Margot loved it.”
Ehrlich, who dressed Robbie and longtime client Cruz for this year’s ceremony, creates mood boards — inspired by past and present designers’ collections — for clients to get their creative energy going. “For Penelope, we wanted a romantic, glamorous feel while maintaining her modern elegance,” says Ehrlich, who commissioned Giambattista Valli to create Cruz’s blush-hued couture gown (No. 19).
LABELS SHE LOVES
Antonio Berardi, Giambattista Valli, Oscar de la Renta, Roksanda Ilincic and “anything from the new Chanel Dallas collection,” says Ehrlich.
