She came, she saw, she slayed. It’s just that simple.
Or is it?
Lots of people see red carpet outfits and assume that a stylist sat at every NYFW show and maybe some international ones too, watching intently, taking note of all the pieces with potential. Only to pull out these notes as reference once a client has a big event to attend.
But I contest that styling, at it’s best, is more of an art form. Maybe even a science if you will. It involves knowing your client, and combining clothes, makeup, hair, and accessories to communicate a message. Fashion is art, obviously. But the art of styling comes in when stylists are able to tell stories with their work, making what they do believable on the people who wear it.
