Now that the awards season is over and the best dressed (and worst dressed for that matter) have been crowned, it's time to give credit where credit is truly due: To the stars' stylists. The men and women behind all the jaw-dropping gowns and accessories we've spent the last two plus months talking about.

First to do so is The Hollywood Reporter. The publication made its own list of the top 25 most powerful fashion gurus. Here are the big five:

Cate Blanchett, Julia Roberts, Sandra Bullock, Oscars 2014

1. Elizabeth Stewart: She dressed three Best Actress nominees (Cate Blanchett, Julia Roberts and Sandra Bullock) at this year Oscars—how could she not be number one?

2. Petra Flannery: Sure, she kept Amy Adams on our best dressed lists all award season long but it should be noted that she also continues to take fashion risks (that always pay off) with red carpet favorites Emma Stone and Claire Danes too.

3. Micaela Erlanger: What a year! The stylist is having a breakout moment thanks to her top client, Lupita Nyong'o. Oh, and Michelle Dockery and Olivia Munn aren't looking too shabby either.

4. Karla Welch and Kemal Harris: The 2014 Golden Globes must have been a nuts for the duo who dressed Olivia Wilde, Robin Wright, and Amy Poehler. (and the co-host had three costume changes!)

5. Leslie Fremar: Not only does she have two Oscar winners (Charlize Theron and Reese Witherspoon) as clients but she also gets to play dress up with Scarlett Johansson and Julianne Moore. Doesn't get more A-list than that!

So where is Rachel Zoe? Not to worry she, of course, made the list, just outside the top five. And following her there are tons more names include Naomi Watts' stylist Jeanann Williams and Kerry Washington's stylist Erin Walsh.

What are your thoughts on the list? Do you agree with the top five?
