Champions of Fashion
THE 2018 INSTYLE AWARDS WILL HONOR THE TRUE LEGENDS OF THE RED CARPET ON OCTOBER 22 IN LOS ANGELES.
ICON JULIA ROBERTS
Does anyone better illustrate that your best accessory is a smile? Roberts looks equally at ease in a T-shirt or a structured gown. “Her style is off the cuff and full of joie de vivre,” says stylist Elizabeth Stewart.
DESIGNER CLARE WAIGHT KELLER
There’s no denying Givenchy’s artistic director really killed it this year, from couture to the royal wedding. “I don’t think I’ve ever been more happy to work on so many different things,” she says.
STYLE STAR YARA SHAHIDI
Since her breakout success on Black-ish and Grown-ish, Shahidi has followed a motto that speaks to a new, outspoken generation: “Wearing color gives you confidence. You have no choice but to own your space.”
STYLIST ELIZABETH STEWART
These fashion eyes see all—for Cate Blanchett, Viola Davis, and Julia Roberts. “I like to channel each client’s individual style,” she says, “and make sure I stay very true to them.”
HAIRSTYLIST CHRIS MCMILLAN
Few artists can aspire to create just one style as iconic as the Rachel, let alone so many memorable looks (for Jennifer Aniston, Miley Cyrus, Kate Hudson, and Michelle Williams).
VOICE OF STYLE KARLA WELCH
Welch creates indelible impressions while also bringing critical issues to the forefront: “Speaking up is something I’ve done my whole life,” she says. “I feel an obligation to influence for good.”
MAKEUP ARTIST JAMES KALIARDOS
Little wonder that Rihanna trusts Kaliardos to be Fenty Beauty’s resident makeup artist. His light touch has made him the go-to guy for Kirsten Dunst and Anne Hathaway too.
