#12 Estee Stanley

Celebrity stylist to the stars Estee Stanley comes in at number 12 on the Hollywood Reporters top 25 stylist list. With over 15 years of styling experience under her belt, Estee Stanly is considered a veteran in the industry. This insanely talented stylist has had the amazing opportunity of working with some seriously fashion forward clients, including Jessica Biel, Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz, Mandy Moore, Sophia Vergara, Jennifer Aniston and style icons Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. Not only does she have a distinguished eye for fashion, but she is also quite the interior designer. She's also put her styling skills to work on some of her client's homes. Her interior design work has been featured in Los Angeles Confidential, Domino, and Glamour Magazine. 

Estee works as a team with the always fabulous stylist Christina Ehrlich. Together they started a high-end clothing line called, Miss Davenporte.” Word on the boulevard is that when the Simple Life star Nicole Richie left style goddess Rachel Zoe, she turned to Christina and Estee to handle her fashion demands.

When asked about her long working relationship with "The Row" designers, Mary Kate and Ashley, Estee dished to Stylist.com “I started working with them when they were 16 or 17, so they were really, really young. Now I work on and off with them, mostly Ashley. They'd probably kill me, but I want to say they were dressed as twins when they showed up at the first shoot. Maybe not twins, but very similar. I definitely think their style has emerged.” I’m completely obsessed with the Olsen twins style so it's super exciting to discover the genius behind their wardrobe.

The style veteran's favorite designers to pull from are Giambattista Valli and Oscar de la Renta, two must-haves for clients Lea Michele and Jessica Biel. Estee likes to create memorable and unexpected moments on the red carpet, which is why she tends to dress the Glee starlet in statement dresses that one would normally expect to be see on an older client. It's these brilliant touches and meticulous attention to detail, that has landed Estee’s clients on the best dressed list for years.

When asked to share an everyday styling tip, Estee revealed to Stylist.com, “It's about versatile pieces and key pieces. Don't buy crazy, trendy things you're only going to wear once. Buy things you will consistently wear, invest in better pieces, and throw things in your bag like heels that can take it to evening.” When it comes to dressing Hollywood, Estee is at the top of her game. Lea Michele's most recent fashion moments have been faint worthy and it's nice to see the spotlight drift to the genius that helped create the look, especially when she's as fabulous as Estee Stanley. Below are some of her credits and client work. Which is your favorite?

Something Extra: Estee Stanley tied the knot last year at the Cicada Restaurant inside the Oviatt Building here in LA. And half of Hollywood was at the wedding, including Tobey Maguire, Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel, and even Goldie Hawn. Clients Mary Kate and Ashley were even her bridesmaids. Below are pictures of the bride to be and bridesmaids running through the streets with mask on to hide from the paparazzi. Can you spot the Olsen’s?
