We all know that behind every well-dressed celebrity is a celebrity stylist who is working behind the scenes artistically to create the perfect looks. These stylists do a lot more than style celebrities, they introduce the world to novel styling, up-and-coming designers and they are the driving force behind some of the coolest fashion trends that we’ve gotten to see.
A celebrity stylist doesn’t just style their clients when there is a red carpet event or some huge social function. They also attend to the wardrobe needs of their celebrity clients even when they are off-duty. Since the celebrity’s lifestyle is always caught on camera, many celebrities also use their stylists for their casual looks. Many of the styles that we love are carefully planned out by someone whose main aim is to make the celebrity stand out enough to get the attention of fashion-forward on-lookers like us and to get the whole world’s attention on their clients.
