HER NEW GETS
“It was a crazy year — eight of my clients had films that were nominated [throughout awards season], and four of those were individual nominations,” says Urbinati, who nearly tripled her client roster. She started working with Reynolds in the summer while he was promoting The Croods and teamed with James Marsden in August on Lee Daniels’ The Butler. Modern Family‘s Burrell called on Urbinati for September’s Emmys; Juliette Lewis (August: Osage County), Steve Coogan (Philomena) and Forte (Nebraska) soon followed. Urbinati most recently teamed with Theo James for his Divergent press.
HER TOP LOOK
Urbinati loves the black crystal-encrusted Jenny Packham turtleneck dress that she put on The Vampire Diaries actress Dobrev for the People’s Choice Awards (No. 29). “Nina ended up flying in the day of the event,” says Urbinati. “Luckily, I had tailored it just in case, and it was ready to go.”
Sewing Masters of Sex actress Caplan into her art deco-inspired Emilio Pucci gown as she headed out the door to the Globes. “Not my favorite thing to do, but the beading was so heavy that the sleeves had to be sewn on to the dress. I have no idea how she got out of it at the end of the night,” says Urbinati.
BEYOND THE RED CARPET
Urbinati styles front-row VIPs for Tommy Hilfiger’s fashion shows, plus any celebrities attending his events in New York or Los Angeles.
