Image gurus responsible for the recent red carpet moments of a trio of top actresses discuss the looks that put them on the industry's map.
The longtime assistant of Leslie Fremar went out on her own in 2017, dressing Stranger Things' Sadie Sink, 15, in Jackie O-esque Miu Miu for the Globes ("I was inspired after binge-watching The Crown," Dickson says) and Scarlett Johansson, 33, in vintage Yves Saint Laurent for a New York gala. Dickson's styling must-haves? "Coffee, double-stick tape, a strong team and Y7 Yoga."
Karla Welch's former assistant got the biggest response to This Is Us' Mandy Moore, 33, in sweeping Rosie Assoulin at the Globes. "It was a Time's Up statement and also a nod to a strong, inspiring female designer," says Cloud, who started working with Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins, 46, this year.
"Spectacular jewelry is key, especially in the sea of black at the Globes," says Mukamal of Big Little Lies' Zoe Kravitz, 29, in jaw-dropping Lorraine Schwartz emerald earrings (105 carats!) with Yves Saint Laurent. The pair also topped best dressed lists with rainbow Dior at the Emmys. Says the stylist, "It was whimsical for us, but the fit and plunging back gave it the sexy-cool factor we favor."
