The Hollywood Reporter is launching their inaugural designer A-List issue. Inside, they talk about influencers who rank as the top 25 red carpet designers. In our opinion, they got it exactly right. From classics like Christian Dior and Oscar de la Renta to relative newcomers including Prabal Gurung and Jenny Packham, THR talks to the designers on the showstopping gowns, walking red carpet events and the gorgeous women who inspire them.

Hitting newstands Septemer 29, you’ll get a peek into the world of these billion-dollar brands. Highlights in the issue include Francisco Costa reflecting on dressing Lupita Nyong’o, what makes Giorgio Armani’s gowns perfect, and the designers’ take on how the red carpet influences their business.
