7 Celebrity Stylists to Follow this Awards Season

Los Angeles, CA, EUA

(Thank God!) 2021 Awards-Season is officially open, the red carpet fever is back, and although it still virtual, the Hollywood stars glamour is finding a way back into the spotlight. 

I've personally, always been fascinated about the actresses's stunning gowns and the perfectly groomed actors. But how it all come together so good that it becomes a fashion trend? Who choses the dress, contact the designer? How the makeup is going to look like, the hair style, the jewelry? If you start to question it you will see, getting ready for an Oscars night is not that simple and easy. 


2021 (Virtual) Red Carpet Season is open!

The responsible for the magic? The Celebrity Stylist. Still little known, the profession has gained more recognition in recent years and, especially in 2020, when the rare moments of behind-the-scenes and pre-carpet prep started to be shared all over social media. 

And for the International Women's Day, we have compiled a list of the top 7 female celebrity stylists in Hollywood. Who are behind the most notable outfits of our favorite movie stars and who deserves your follow on Instagram now: 

Elizabeth Stewart @elizabethstewart1

The LA-based stylist is responsible for the perfect look of some of the most prestigious actors in the industry like Amanda Seyfried, Rebel Wilson, Zoey Deutch and Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot. Plus, she’s the one to blame about the Viola Davis (most commented) gown at the last Golden Globes. And on Stewart’s IG you will find a lot of good and fun behind-the-scenes moments staring our divas: Cate Blanchett and eternal pretty woman, Julia Roberts

Today, her celebrity clientele includes Star Wars actress, Daisy Ridley, Elle and Dakota Fanning, Mark Ruffalo, Ryan Gosling, Brie Larson, Evan Rachel Wood, Chris Hemsworth, Michelle Pfeiffer and yes, she dressed Jodie Foster in (that “comfy at home” pajama style) Prada for the Golden Globes too.

Ilaria Urbinati @ilariaurbinati

Have you ever had the curiosity to know who’s behind Hollywood's best-dressed men? Her name is Ilaria Urbinati (yes, a woman!) and she is one of the greatest in the business - being featured on The Hollywood Reporter’s “Most Powerful Stylists” list six years in a row! 
Urbinati clients have included Dwayne Johnson, Armie Hammer, Chris Evans, Donald Glover, Rami Malek, Tom Hiddleston, Bradley Cooper and Riz Ahmed. And besides dressing up these gorgeous superstars, the stylist has created a men's lifestyle site: Leo. Named after her son, the project (that came into life during and as result of pandemic times) encompasses fashion, culture, food, booze, travel, fitness and sports.
