|Kate Young ( First place honors 2012)|
Hollywood’s top stylists gathered yesterday for the initial 25 Most Powerful Stylists Luncheon, co-hosted by The Hollywood Reporter and Jimmy Choo. Last year’s top three stylists on the list were fashion powerhouses Rachel Zoe who took the first place honors, Kate Young, and Petra Flannery. THR unveiled that Young, whose clients include Michelle Williams, Natalie Portman, and Rachel Weisz, has come out on top this year. Zoe was excused from this year’s list because “her success has been so beyond what anyone thought a stylist could achieve,” according to THR. Leslie Fremar, stylist to the likes of Charlize Theron and Reese Witherspoon, came in a close second, and Flannery, who dresses Emma Stone, Zoe Saldana, and Mila Kunis (among others), nabbed the number three spot.
