Celebrities are constantly under a watchful eye, and the pressure to look perfect weighs heavy on their shoulders. That is why they turn to one of the most helpful people in their entourage: the Hollywood Stylist.
Emma Stone has been voted the most fashionable woman of 2012 by Vogue and InStyle magazines. Whenever she makes an appearance, whether on the street or on the red carpet, she always looks fantastic. So the question is: How does she do it?
Emma Stone’s secret is Hollywood Stylist Petra Flannery, a San Franciscan with classic yet bold taste. She is known to be a risk taker, because she sets herself as a trendsetter, not a trend follower.
Petra Flannery actually started her career at Elite Models as an agent. She would take care of the models, of booking editorials and of handling the photographers. That gave her a unique perspective on the fashion industry, and she progressively developed her personal style and vision throughout those years. Eventually, she became the Hollywood Stylist that we now know as the one successfully styling not only Emma Stone, but also Mila Kunis, Zoe Saldana, Taylor Swift and Megan Fox, just to name a few.
What she does best is establishing the personal style of the client and working from there. After all, her client list involves very different people: from innocent to sexy to trendy to fashion forward. It is very important to her to maintain who they are in her work, and that is what has made her famous.
So what does Petra Flannery recommend us for our own style endeavours?
At the end of the day, don’t be afraid to try things on, because the worse that can happen is that is doesn't look good, which isn't irreversible. Simply develop your style by staying true to yourself.
