celebrity stylists

Awards season is fast-approaching, and we are restlessly anticipating the serious fashion that usually follows in its wake. Even when the year’s films have failed to satisfy (lack of racial diversity, failing the Bechdel test. It’s not that hard, you guys), the red carpet is always worth paying attention to: that’s largely thanks to a select handful of super-stylists, some of whose client lists read like a casting director’s dream. If you get fatigued clicking through tons of sartorial misses to get to a single hit, do yourself a favour and follow these stylists on Instagram for the cream of the red carpet crop:
