#18 Tiina Laakkonen

The insanely talented Tiina Laakkonen has had some truly incredible opportunities and big breaks throughout her styling career. The fashion maven started out her journey as an intern at the most respected haute couture house in the world. While other aspiring fashion starlets ran the halls of their local Macy's and Forever 21, Tiina was interacting with the elite crowd of fashion experts at the always posh, Chanel. That's right, Chanel. As in the greatest internship a girl could possibly dream of. For three ridiculously amazing years Tiina worked under the legendary Karl Lagerfeld.

She even worked at the world renowned Lanvin for a short time. Jealous yet? Tiina's first break into the life of a stylist came while working for British Vogue. She was given the opportunity to style her first shoot and the rest is fash history.
Tiina's most recent work is styling the incredibly beautiful Nicole Farhi Spring/Summer 2011 ad campaign. She was also the fashion editor and stylist for Monique Lhuillier's Fall/Winter 2011 runway show. If you're not already dying to be in her shoes for a day, she also has a never ending list of styling credits in Vogue China and The New York Times Magazine.

Tiina is without a doubt a high fashion stylist with an eye like no other. Her print work styling is beyond uh-mazing, her journey from intern to runway defines ambitious, and her resume speaks volumes for her fashion genius. She also styled the beyond major doll like photo shoot with little country Princess, Taylor Swift for The NY Times Magazine and has been a long time stylist for the always classic, Carrie Mulligan.

Check out some of her incredible work below. There's so many amazing pictures, it was so hard to pick my favorites. Enjoy.
