As much as we like to give actresses all the credit (and blame) for their red carpet hits and misses, we do know that most of them get more than a little (paid) help from their friends. And while some stylists are certainly famous in their own right (Rachel Zoe and Brad Goreski come to mind), most tend to keep things a little more behind-the-scenes. Last year, the Hollywood Reporter dubbed Zoe Hollywood’s Most Powerful Stylist — and now she’s too big of a brand to even be considered. Which means there’s a big spot left at the top of that list.
This year, the top honor went to Kate Young, who most famously styled Michelle Williams and Natalie Portman onto many a best dressed list. Rounding out the top five were:
#2: Leslie Fremar, who styles Charlize Theron and Reese Witherspoon
#3: Petra Flannery (Emma Stone, Zoe Saldana)
#4: Elizabeth Stewart (Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence, Viola Davis)
#5: Kemal Harris and Karla Wench (Hailee Steinfeld, Stacey Kiebler).
