The Best-Kept Red Carpet Secrets — Straight From 2 Celebrity Stylists
When a celebrity shows up to a red carpet event looking beautiful, we know that didn't all happen miraculously. Behind the scenes, it takes a village of makeup artists, hair experts, and celebrity stylists pulling gowns, shoes, and jewels to get to that final point. The journey, for some stylists, starts months in advance in the search for the perfect gown. Some fashion houses, like Givenchy, only dress one major star for an event (Meryl Streep received that honor in 2017 for the Golden Globes), so you can imagine the pressure stylists face when tracking down that "It" dress.
Instead of guessing what the life of a celebrity stylist is like though, we went straight to the source for answers. We tapped Hollywood power players Elizabeth Stewart and Micaela Erlanger for their insider celebrity styling secrets. Stewart (who dresses the likes of Viola Davis) and Erlanger (who works with Diane Kruger and Meryl Streep) both have a personal approach to tackling fashion dilemmas for clients, and they shared some fun insights with us. The next time you see a celebrity on the red carpet, you'll know exactly how everything was pulled off.
