Who dresses who: meet the other power stylists

The Guardian - Weekend - - Experience -

Karla Welch

The Cana­dian’s client list in­cludes Lorde ( be­low), Amandla Sten­berg, Elis­a­beth Moss and Katy Perry as well as, more sur­pris­ingly, Justin Bieber. Al­though her per­sonal style is low-key (she has de­scribed her­self as a “Celin “Ce­line wo­man”, of the Phoeb Phoebe Philo mould) it is t the big fash­ion­care ca­reer-shap­ing “m “mo­ments” w which Welch is m most known for. Sh She has been cre cred­ited with cat cat­a­pult­ing Ruth Neg Negga to bestdr dressed sta­tus via some cus­tom­made Louis Vuit­ton.

Ilaria Urbinati

One of Hol­ly­wood’s top men’s stylist, Urbinati has dressed Ar­mie Ham­mer in Gucci ci tuxes, Sacha Baron Co­hen in Paul Smith suits, and Rami Malek in Givenchy leather jack­ets. Other big­name clients in­clude Bradley Cooper, Dwayne “The Rock” John­son and Tom Hid­dle­ston.

But she is per­haps best known for her re­cent work with Don­ald Glover, dress­ing him in Gucci suits (above), from brown v vel­vet to thick pin­stripe. Urbinati is big o on what she calls “a “ag­gres­sive styling” –b – bold colours, print prints (see The Rock in a H Hawai­ian shirt) and jew­ellery. je

Leith CClark

This Lo Lon­don­based, Cana­dian stylist’s name has be­come a by­word for the ro­man­tic look – think Keira Knightly in floaty Chanel cou­ture (right) or Er­dem dresses; flo­rals, lace and long hem­lines. Clark (a former house­mate of Alexa Chung) most re­cently worked with Bat­sheva, fash­ion’s favourite new dress brand (known for remixed prairie dresses in­spired by Ortho­dox Ju­daism). She is also the foundered­i­tor of Vi­o­let, a fash­ion mag­a­zine which aims to rep­re­sent di­verse women of all ages.

Marni Seno­fonte Most fa­mous for shap­ing the Bey­oncé Lemon­ade al­bum look (and that iconic preg­nancy shoot), Seno­fonte works with mu­si­cians from Lau­ryn Hill to Diddy. She is branch­ing out, re­cently tak­ing on Kendall Jen­ner as a client (her sis­ter Kim Kar­dashian is an old friend).

Seno­fonte’s aes­thetic is high-oc­tane and at­ten­tion-wielding – think Bey­oncé’s Michael Jack­son-in­spired leather mil­i­tary jacket with fish­nets for the Black Pan­ther Su­per Bowl owl per­for­mance, or the un­miss­able yel­low Cavalli dress (right) she wore for the Hold Up video.
