Famous Fittings. This and next month, fashion designers based in New York, London, Milan and Paris will be showing next season's collections. Today, it's only fitting that we're launching our podcast with celebrity stylist and author of How To Accessorize: A Perfect Finish To Every Outfit, Micaela Erlanger. She shares all the details about path she's taken to land her coveted career. We talk internships, and recovering from mistakes. We go nitty gritty about what it takes to get noticed in a sometimes cut-throat industry. Micaela and Tamara discuss how being a stylist entails much more than picking out pretty party dresses. We discuss the strategy required to create visual images for her famous clients like Lupita Nyongo and Michelle Dockery. Micaela also gets candid about the sudden death of her long time friend, one time boss, and mentor: celebrity stylist + editor, Annabelle Tollman. She fills us in on the highs and lows of her glamorous and not always glamorous life, taking us on a ride through Paris, the red carpet, movie sets, and more. Micaela shares her wardrobe must-haves, ways to accessorize, and the tips and tricks for looking like you too, have a celebrity stylist on speed dial.
“I would say yes to any request from a client or a friend saying, ‘Hey, would you meet someone?’ You just don't know. You never know where an opportunity might lead you.” - Micaela Erlanger
"I love what I do, and I worked really hard to get to where I am, but it's a lot of work. It's grueling and sometimes truly back-breaking, but for me, it's much more than just picking out a pretty party dress. There really is a strategy behind it because I'm responsible for creating the image and the quote brand of my clients when they're out promoting their films or their work or whatever it might be on the red carpet." - Micaela Erlanger
