How did you first start working with Emily?
We met in a professional capacity while I was still a Fashion Editor at Vogue and really hit it off as we had a lot of stylistic similarities.
What’s the first step in the styling process?
It’s an on-going process! The second that shows are posted on Vogue Runway, I scour them and add to folders and moodboards that I have for each of my clients. My Vogue training has made me both methodical and practical as well as creative, so I always consider what is sartorially appropriate for the season, aesthetically consistent with our shared vision, and ever-evolving with what’s currently inspiring both myself and my clients.
How would you characterize Emily’s style?
Emily is an absolute unicorn in the way that she manages to be both remarkably relatable and incredibly fashion forward. Everything that she puts on looks instantly sexy and cool because of her innate sense of style—she has such a strong knowledge of fashion and education in art, but is also inherently a beach-babe from San Diego.
What about red carpet fashion did you feel needed to change?
I think that there was an attachment to brand-name that feels antiquated—it’s the stylist’s job to judge the quality and caliber of the pieces being used and this shouldn’t exclude younger brands. That being said, I do think that this is widely practiced and I have so much respect for all stylists—everyone’s unique approach is what keeps both the industry and the general audience on their toes!
Who are some of your favorite designers for Emily?
Some of my favorite looks have been with Prada, Altuzarra, Jacquemus, and Brock.
