Our Favorite Looks from The Hollywood Reporter's Top 5 Most Powerful Stylists


As much as we'd like to believe Hollywood's elite struts onto the red carpet looking fabulous thanks to their own innate style prowess, these A-listers have a whole team backing their every gown, heel, and minaudière. Without these teams, and namely, the stylists leading the charge, our favorite celebs would look a little less perfect at every awards show.

Yesterday, The Hollywood Reporter released its annual list of the industry's 25 Most Powerful Stylists, all with rolodexes bursting with Hollywood's biggest and brightest stars. We've taken a look at this year's top five stylists and chosen our favorite looks they've put together throughout this awards season.

#1: Leslie Fremar
The look: Julianne Moore at the 2012 Emmys, in Dior Couture

This year's top stylist guru is Leslie Fremar, whose near-perfect red carpet record has garnered fiercely loyal A-list clientele, such as Charlize Theron, Reese Witherspoon, and Scarlett Johansson. Julianne Moore's canary yellow Dior Couture look at the 2012 Emmys rocked the red carpet and beautifully brought out her signature red locks. We credit this look as one of Fremar's best.

#2: Petra Flannery
The look: Claire Danes at the 2013 Golden Globes, in Atelier Versace

Petra Flannery dresses perpetually cool girls — Zoe Saldana, Emma Stone, and Mila Kunis — for their biggest red carpet events, channeling classic vibes while also incorporating elements that have a little edge. This red-hot Atelier Versace gown on Claire Danes for the 2013 Golden Globes looked smoking with her coloring and her post-pregnancy bod.

#3: Rachel Zoe
The look: Jennifer Lawrence at the 2013 Oscars, in Dior Haute Couture

Rachel Zoe has ranked highly on THL's Most Powerful Stylists list for years, and there's a reason she remains on top. Zoe may have become a celebrity in her own right, but let's not forget the styling chops that got her to where she is today. Words don't exist that appropriately describe how much we love everything about J-Law, especially her in this Dior Haute Couture gown at the 2013 Oscars.

#4: Kate Young
The look: Michelle Williams at the Oz the Great and Powerful premiere, in Prada

Stylist superwoman Kate Young earned the list's coveted #1 spot the last two years for dressing Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, and Natalie Portman in some of Hollywood's most elegant looks. This year coming in at #4, Young outfitted Williams, here in an elegant and whimsy Prada gown on a wildly busy tour for Oz, while also prepping a soon-to-launch Target line.

#5: Elizabeth Stewart
The look: Amanda Seyfried at the 2013 SAG Awards, in Zac Posen

Known for outfitting red carpet regulars like Jessica Chastain, Julia Roberts, and Cate Blanchett, Elizabeth Stewart relies on labels such as Alexander McQueen, Givenchy, and Prabal Gurung to hit her looks out of the park. We all know that Amanda Seyfried's style is the perfect mix of flirty and sophisticated, and we saw it exemplified here at the 2013 SAG Awards when she wore this Zac Posen gown with a statement Lorraine Schwartz necklace.
