No more anonymous celebrity stylists! 3 names to know in 2023

Celebrity stylists are often the unsung heroes. Their work for celebrity clients is often photographed and broadcast around the world—via red carpet appearances, magazine spreads, concerts, etc.—but rarely their names. They are still a bunch of invisible hands in a way. Because, of course, many people remember the moment when Timothée Chalamet went shirtless at the Oscars, or Doja Cat’s exhilarating experimental looks at Paris Fashion Week. But how many can name the stylist partially responsible for the viral ensemble? (For the record, Erin Walsh and Brett Alan Watson, respectively.) This paradox feels especially odd, thanks to social media, where a celebrity’s style is seen and picked by many — and, most of the time, it triggers cultural dominance trend. (See: The recent rise of opera gloves as casual wear.)

In fact, the tension created by working in such a high-profile job in a low-key public capacity is at the root of the famous “image designer” News of Law Roach’s retirement announcement. In an interview with Lindsey Peoples Wagner of The Cut2022, the year-old looks The division cited a range of reasons for his retirement, including burnout, demanding clients and a janitor. A palpable sense of overwork and underestimation emerged during the hour-long interview. “I just feel like sometimes I deserve more care,” the sizzling creative once said. Roach is not alone. Talking to GQ, Hollywood stylists recently recounted stories of mounting demands and stressors on their shows; stylist Kara Adds Welch, “I think the biggest challenge is too many people and too few looks.”

Celebrity stylists—both established and upcoming—seem early deserve their roses. To highlight the stylist’s vital contribution to the modern world of fashion, Vogue has brought together three fast-rising names – Felicity Kay, Marissa Pelly , Enrique Melendez- and learn more about their approach within the industry.

Kay, who has worked with It boy actors like Kit Connor and Paul Mescal, cites an interest in “going post-sexist in fashion.” Mescal’s move to womenswear-first brands such as Simone Rocha articulates this effort. Pelly, the rapper Ice Spice’s stylist, has her sights set on a somewhat new mix of “iconic luxury brands” and “fashion niche brands.”
