By now, most of us know celebrity stylists are responsible for the flawlessly stylish looks we see on some of our favorite leading ladies. But if you think outfitting a star only involves picking a pretty dress, think again! The Hollywood Reporter has just released its third annual 25 Most Powerful Stylists issue, and in addition to boosting their clients' careers (campaign deals tend to roll in when your name is synonymous with style), these sartorial whizzes are landing some pretty lucrative deals of their own.
Take Leslie Fremar, who tops this list and graces one of THR's four covers alongside client Julianne Moore. Just last week, we learned she's gearing up to launch a denim line with stylish star Charlize Theron. And coming in at No. 4, stylist Kate Young has created a capsule collection for Target that's due to come out this spring. Not too shabby, huh?
And these stylists tend to get pretty chummy with the gals they style, too. We caught up with Petra Flannery—who ranks as the second most influential stylist this year—at the THR and Jimmy Choo luncheon celebrating the issue on Monday afternoon, and she gushed about client and cover girl costar, Zoe Saldana.
"Highest moments [of my career] are getting to work with the people I do, especially Zoe, and to have a cover with her this year means so much because there is a true friendship there," she told us.
And it looks like Saldana feels the same way about her go-to stylist.
"I am so proud of her because I could never take credit for what I do," she shared with us at the luncheon. "We shop together, we travel together, we work together. It is always a collaboration; sometimes I lead and sometimes she leads the ship. I love it; I am skipping to the studio everyday. It is fun."
