Amber Valletta's styling career spans 30 years of iconic fashion

Amber Valletta is prone to sighing and saying an emotional “ohh” when faced with images from her early modeling career. Like her cover for

Vogue February 90 issue, this is her A “first” cover made by a magazine. “I was with my best friend Shalom,” she quickly remembered. (This won’t be the first or last reference to her modeling idol bff, aka “Miss Playful,” and the other half who make up the “Shalamber” moniker.) Another “Ooh!” when she was on Jil Sander’s She blurted out when she saw a picture of herself on the runway at the fall 90 show. “I love working with her,” Valletta explained. “She was just such an interesting, powerful woman. Ahead of her time.”

As Valletta relives different moments in her life, she is keen to offer Short anecdotes from many different industry luminaries I have worked with; from photographer Peter Lindbergh (“Peter really allows me to express myself, so if I’m feeling strong or moody, he lets me be that guy”); to Karl Lagerfeld ( “I just thought Karl was so amazing and funny and witty…he knew it all”); kicked off Tom Ford’s legendary Gucci Fall 1995 show (“He gave us sex back, I think we’re in ’90s”). She also revealed her “difficult shoot” co-star, her own son Auden, who was a few months old. “He really didn’t want to be a model … he wanted to walk around the house,” she added with a laugh. From wearing the

Versace dresses “before” J.Lo, to embodying the essence of Alber Elbaz as she closes Spring AZ’s factory show tribute to the designer whose personal fashion story is deeply intertwined with the history of fashion over the past three decades. She ends her “Life in Looks” tour saying, “I hope we can continue this book, and maybe we have more chapters ahead of us.” So do we. Click the link to view her full story.
