She’s credited with reintroducing the original It girl- Sienna Miller- on to the scene for the second time. She’s also responsible for the serious swooning we’ve been doing over Selena Gomez, Rachel Weisz and Dakota Johnson. The name on everyone’s lips? Stylist Kate Young. Her approach to celebrity styling is hipper than your average; don’t expect the pretty floral frock and court shoe formula. And definitely forget the ol’ body-con tactic in order to attract column inches – that’s definitely not cool enough for this highly sought- after Brooklyn-based insider.
Selena Gomez ditching her Disney Princess vibes and developing a signature of monochrome power dressing? That’s Kate. Rachel Weisz knocking the socks off an entire nation in Alexander McQueen when accompanying her beau Daniel Craig to the Bond premiere in London last week? Kate again. Sienna’s successful transition from boho queen to slick Céline and Gucci-clad purist both on and off her recent Burnt film promo trail? Bingo!
Kate, who has also dressed Natalie Portman, Michelle Williams and Elizabeth Olsen, jumped into action with Sienna’s major Miu Miu moment at the Golden Globes earlier this year, seguing beautifully into a series of knockout ensembles during Cannes Film Festival.
She has an impressive back catalogue of excellent red-carpet spots (remember Michelle Williams at the 2006 Oscars in yellow Vera Wang?) and is a constant presence on The Hollywood Reporter’s definitive annual top 25 Power Stylists list, but with two of the best British ladies now on her roster, it looks like Kate the Great is set to take on the UK.
