15 Celeb Fashion Stylists You Need To Start Following On Instagram Right Now
C'mon, they deserve a follow after making your fave celebs looks so stylish.
We have to admit that celebs scrub up rather well on the red carpet and no, it’s not down to a panic splurge on ASOS but actually the carefully thought-out creation of a stylist working their absolute butt off behind the scenes.
We should also admit that we spend far too long keeping tabs on what our fave stars are doing and wearing, so why don’t we know the fashion gurus behind their infamous looks?
Watch! Love Island's Alex and Olivia take on the girlfriend does my make up challenge with hilarious results...
These style maestros have an eye for what's hot and what's not, so they're the stepping stone to landing the celebs on the best dressed lists the morning after the (very glam) night before.
And for that, they deserve a medal... or at least a follow on Insta.
1. Monica Rose - @monicarosestyle
Who has she styled for? Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Chrissy Teigen, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, Gigi Hadid, Chanel Iman, Behati Prinsloo.
Remember Kendall’s sparkly Paris Hilton-esque dress and Khloe's sexy gym shoot for Complex magazine? If you’ve been keeping up with the Kardashians (sorry), you’ll know that Monica Rose used to be the longtime styling brains behind the majority of the Kardashian/Jenner clan.
It was all fun and games until it was reported that Khloe K had parted ways with the superstar stylist a few months ago. We're not sure about the ins and outs of the feud but we still think Monica is a must follow.
2. Law Roach - @luxurylaw
Who has he styled for? Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, Zendaya, Kylie Jenner, Celine Dion, Jessie J, Ruby Rose, Isabella Moner, Tom Holland, Camila Cabello.
The America's Next Top Model judge previously styled Ariana on her Dangerous Woman tour and dresses his client Zendaya who always looks uh-mazing. She must trust him too, as he's the creative director of her shoe and clothing line 'Daya by Zendaya'.
3. Karla Welch - @karlawelchstylist
Who has she styled for? Hailee Steinfeld, Lorde, Karlie Kloss, Justin Bieber, Pink, Camila Cabello.
When she's not prepping Lorde for a talk show appearance and Camila Cabello for a performance all in one weekend, she's dressing Bieber up in something fancy: "Anytime I put Justin in a suit, it gets a lot of attention." Basically, Beliebers are a big fan of Karla Welch.
4. Mel Ottenberg - @melzy917
Who has he styled for? Rihanna, Lady Gaga.
When you're the person who puts together RiRi's red carpet ensembles (including that completely sheer crystal dress at the C.F.D.A. Awards in 2014), you've pretty much made it in life. Throw in styling all of Britney Spears’s backup dancers’ costumes at the 'Slave 4 U' performance with the snake at the VMAs and our minds are blown by this guy.
5. Simone Harouche - @simoneharouche
Who has she styled for? Kim Kardashian, Gigi Hadid, Miley Cyrus, Nicole Richie, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez.
As well as being close friends with Kim K, Simone has a power house of celeb clients and even owns a line of vintage and leather handbags.
6. Kate Young - @kateyoung
Who has she styled for? Dakota Johnson, Selena Gomez, Margot Robbie, Sienna Miller, Natalie Portman, Angel Candices, Lily Aldridge.
She was the brains behind SelGo's orange dress at the 13 Reasons Why premiere and Margot Robbie’s Suicide Squad tour wardrobe. Say. No. More.
7. Marni Senofonte - @Marnixmarni
Who has she styled for? Beyonce, Kendall Jenner, P.Diddy, Jay Z, Blue Ivy, and even Barbie.
Marni was the style mastermind behind Bey's Lemonade visual album (so she's already a genius), as well as her 2016 Super Bowl half time performance and pregnancy photo shoot. No wonder Kendall snapped her up!
8. Ilaria Urbaniati - @ilariaurbinati
Who has she styled for? Nina Dobrev, Ryan Reynolds, Shailene Woodley, Zooey Deshancel, Kristen Stewart, Bradley Cooper, Dylan Minette, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans.
An in-demand stylist to some of the best-dressed men in the fashion game.
9. Jill Jacobs - @missjilljacobs
Who has she styled for? Khloe Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Jasmine Sanders, Adwoa Aboah.
After working as the assistant to stylist Monica Rose, Jill has now taken over Kylie's wardrobe and is responsible for upping her style game over the past few months.
Yep, she styled Miss Jenner for her Terry Richardson calendar, and channelled Barbie vibes in that shoot for Flaunt Magazine. We get the feeling we’ll be seeing a lot more from her…
10. Petra Flannery - @petraflannery
Who has she styled for? Emilia Clarke, Carey Mulligan, Emma Stone, Amy Adams, Reese Witherspoon, Zoe Saldana, Daisy Ridley, Andrew Garfield.
She's the stylist to La La Land’s golden girl, Emma Stone, so an obviously memorable moment was the Givenchy beached fringe dress in which she wrote on her Instagram, "A magical moment — Emma being the first Oscar winner to wear Givenchy since Audrey Hepburn". The Alexander McQueen unicorn gown Margot Robbie wore for Suicide Squad was also one of her faves.
11. Joseph Cassell - @josephcassell1
Who has he styled for? Taylor Swift, Gigi Hadid, Camila Cabello, Olivia Holt, Kendall Jenner, Beyonce.
Joseph was responsible for Tay's appearance at the VMAs with her Bad Blood squad, all the looks in her “Blank Space” music video as well as *that* pink skirt and orange crop top by Versace that sent the internet a little bit wild.
12. Jason Rembert - @jasonrembert
Who has he styled for? Rita Ora, Zayn Malik? Vanessa Hudgens, KJ Apa.
He's the guy who has carefuly crafted every look of Zayn's since his 1D days, and for that we thank him dearly.
13. Brandon Maxwell - @brandonmaxwell
Who has he styled for? Lady Gaga
As well as having his own SS18 collection, Brandon is the brains behind Gaga's daring outfits. The red gloves she wore with her Oscar dress inspired countless comments about their resemblance to rubber dishwashing gloves, but we'll forgive him as you can't fault Gaga's iconic style evolution.
14. Johnny Wujeck - @jwujek
Who has he styled for? Kim K, Chrissy Teigen, Amber Heard, Katy Perry, Kate Mara, Fifth Harmony, Rachel Bilson, Zac Efron.
Had Katy and Johnny never met, the world might not have seen Katy's memorable outfits like the popcorn dress or spinning bra. So we're glad they did.
15. Rebecca Corbin-Murray - @rebeccacorbinmurray
Who has she styled for? Emma Watson, Lily James, Sophie Turner, Vanessa Kirby, Kaya Scho, Jenna Coleman.
While knowing how to rock a selfie herself, Rebecca is into sustainable fashion including using recycled polyester from used plastic bottles for Emma Watson's Beauty & The Beast press tour. Pretty cool, huh?
