When she’s not working with big names like Lupita Nyong’o, Jennifer Hudson, and Hilary Swank, celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger also divulges her fashion expertise in our Ask a Stylist column. From the best places to source vintage to the secret to finding your most flattering jeans, come back each week for a professional’s perspective.
>People often ask me how I became a celebrity stylist. The answer is simple, I combined my love for fashion with my love for celebrities. And how awesome does it sound to dress your favorite celebrities? Although I love being a celebrity stylist, the fashion industry is no joke. There’s always a new trend or fashion show to keep up with while making sure I know the latest It designs. With that said, most of my time is spent ordering clothing so I have a variety of options to pick from. I am basically a FedEx shipping department 80% of the job. Once I’ve received my purchases, I’m on my way to my client’s home. It’s definitely hard trying to predict whether my client will like what I’ve brought for them, and the reality is it’s a lot less glamorous.
