The Hollywood Reporter Releases 25 Most Powerful Stylists Of 2014

Meet Lupita Nyong’o’s Stylist And The Rest Of Hollywood’s Power Stylists of 2014


Behind every fabulous red carpet star like Lupita Nyong’o is an equally fabulous stylist (in her case Micaela Erlanger) whose invaluable guidance allows them to stand out from the crowd. Now, thanks to The Hollywood Reporter‘s 25 Most Powerful Stylists List, which hits newsstands today and is available on the web here, fashion lovers everywhere will have the chance to get to know the names and faces that make Hollywood’s best-dressed stars look so damn good.

The list is an annual compilation that ranks influential Hollywood stylists based on factors such as their “their red carpet showing, the awards shows nominees they have dressed, new styles they’ve innovated, and the development of their own personal brands.” It also offers up valuable info on the stylists in detailed bios, a peek at some of their A-list clients, favorite labels, and shopable looks.

Let’s take Lupita’s stylist Micaela Erlanger, for instance. From checking out Micaela’s page on the list, we learned that it was Michelle Dockery of “Downton Abbey”–Micaela’s first major client–who recommened Lupita seek out Micaela as a stylist during their time working together on the film “Non-Stop.” Michelle told Lupita, “When you’re ready, I have the perfect stylist for you.” And boy, was she right. Micaela first worked with Lupita for TIFF, where she styled her in the white and gold Prada gown seen here, and as Micaela told THR, “The rest is history.”

To celebrate the stylists and their sartorial successes of the past year, The Hollywood Reporter and Jimmy Choo are co-hosting their third-annual 25 Most Powerful Stylists Luncheon today in West Hollywood at the Soho House. Wish we could be there!

      Lupita just ain’t mainstream is probably what you mean, but she is very attractive. It isn’t hype.

  • smh

    don’t know why i expected to see some black folk stylin’ especially on a black woman with an afro…. wishful thinking i suppose. Hollywood is mostly white so you gonna have mostly white stylists’

      Maybe the black stylists were trying to push a texturizer or weaves on her!
