WHY SHE MATTERS
THR‘s top stylist of 2012 might not have dressed as many awards contenders this year, with Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz on virtual red-carpet hiatus, but newer clients like Emilia Clarke find their every move obsessively observed by the fashion crowd.

HER NEW GET
Young started working with Clarke about a year ago; Chanel, Versace and Calvin Klein are just a few of the designers clamoring to dress the Game of Thrones actress. Her custom Calvin Klein Collection dress in bronze-rose at the SAG Awards was flawless thanks to its perfect fit (No. 24).
HER TOP LOOK
Young’s favorite look was Clarke’s custom black-and-white peplum gown by Proenza Schouler at the Globes. Also earning high marks were longtime client Portman’s Dior looks during the European premiere tour for Thor: The Dark World in the fall, especially the icy blue strapless gown she wore in Berlin (No. 25).
LABELS SHE LOVES
The Brooklyn-based stylist cites Givenchy, Dior and Saint Laurent. She has her eye on Isabel Marant’sBirkenstock sandals: “I’m obsessed. I can’t wait for New York City to warm up.”
BEYOND THE RED CARPET
Young is writing a style book for Assouline due in the fall.
