Celebrities tend to be pretty well-dressed on the red carpet. But, unlike us, they don't achieve their fabulousness with a quick browse online or trip to Topshop.

Behind every headline-grabbing look is a visionary stylist (and probably an army of interns) who made it all happen.

In celebration of these innovators - red carpet royalty, really - and the upcoming awards season, we've gathered the best to add to your Instagram feed right now.

Clients: Margot Robbie, Michelle Williams, Natalie Portman, Selena Gomez, Sienna Miller, Dakota Johnson

Is there anyone Kate Young doesn't style? Err, basically, no. The Brooklyn-based stylist has a taste for colour when dressing her clients, and is responsible for many of the stand-out celebrity looks of the last 12 months.

Margot Robbie's epic Suicide Squad tour wardrobe? All her. Sienna Miller in feather Mix Mix? Her again. Selena Gomez in that elegant red Prada ball gowns at the AMAs? Yep, Kate Young again.

With a client list like her, she'll be super busy over awards season, so make sure to follow her on Instagram.

Rebecca Corbin-Murray

The Hostess with the Mostess... @lilyjamesofficial Such a fabulous, fun party celebrating your gorgeous campaign!! ✨💥💃🏻🍾

A post shared by Rebecca Corbin-Murray (@rebeccacorbinmurray) on

Clients: Emma Watson, Lily James, Sophie Turner, Jenna Coleman

While she often works with actresses who got their big breaks on successful television shows (Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner and Downton Abbey alumna Lily James, to cite a few examples), Rebecca Corbin-Murray is strictly about making women look like total movie stars.


As well as giving great selfie, she's all about celebrating each of her clients and capturing the manic moments just before an awards ceremony commences.

Elizabeth Stewart

Emmys2014! #juliaroberts❤️@sergenormant @engelman&co @genevieveherr

A post shared by Elizabeth Stewart 🐯🎈🈹🍸 (@elizabethstewart1) on


Clients: Julia Roberts, Jessica Chastain, Amanda Seiyfreid, Cate Blanchett

Definitely winning the award for Most Selfies Taken With Celebrities, Elizabeth Stewart is best known for styling A-listers Julia Roberts, Cate Blanchett and Jessica Chastain.

Elizabeth Saltzman

Clients: Saoirse Ronan, Gwyneth Paltrow

She counts Gwyneth Paltrow as not just a client but also a friend, so it's fair to say Saltzman is kind of a big deal. She's the woman responsible for the gorgeous emerald green Calvin Klein gown worn by Saoirse Ronan for the 2016 Oscars too, and we LOVED that dress.

Leslie Fremar

Love this girl @nicolaannepeltz 📷by @willpeltz #loveblondie

A post shared by Lesliefremar (@lesliefremar) on


Clients: Charlize Theron, Julianne Moore, Reese Witherspoon

Leslie Fremar is the go-to red carpet stylist for highest-octane glamour.

A given really, considering her biggest clients include Oscar-wining actresses Charlize Theron, Reese Witherspoon and Julianne Moore.

Rob Zangardi & Mariel Haenn

In the colorful world of @AOL...

A post shared by Lily Collins (@lilyjcollins) on

Clients: Lily Collins, Hailee Steinfeld, Jessica Biel, Cara Delevingne

You may not have heard of this styling duo, but we assure you they're worth a follow. Why? Because they're behind the red carpet style of the angelic Lily Collins, the beautiful Jessica Biel and the Golden Globe nominee-cum-singer Hailed Steinfeld.

Karla Welch

Our minimally dysfunctional awards season family. #teammeganegga

A post shared by Karla Welch (@karlawelchstylist) on


Clients: Ruth Negga, Katy Perry

Ruth Negga is pretty new on our red carpet radar, and we'd been wondering who was behind the beautiful looks (like this Valentino gown) she's been wearing of late - and the answer is Karla Welch.

Petra Flannery

La-La-Voom #EmmaStone #LaLaLand #CriticsChoice Hair: @mararoszak Makeup: @rachel_goodwin

A post shared by Petra Flannery (@petraflannery) on


Clients: Emma Stone, Zoe Saldana, Amy Adams, Emilia Clarke

If you're anything like us and have a serious soft spot for Emma Stone - and can't bear that she isn't on social media - then you need to follow Petra Flannery. As Stone's stylist, she regularly posts behind-the-scenes snaps of the La La Land actress as she heads out to an event. She's also the woman behind Amy Adams and Zoe Saldana's glam looks, so will be very busy this season.

Micaela Erlanger

#TBT that time we went to Paris...#miucciaforever #pfw #lupita #houseoferlanger 😘🙏🏻🗼

A post shared by Micaela Erlanger (@micaelaerlanger) on

Clients: Naomi Harris, Lupita Nyong'o, Meryl Streep

After the 2015 Oscars, Lupita Nyong'o's $150,000 custom-made Calvin Klein gown was stolen from her hotel room - and then returned.

If anything, this is proof that Micaela Erlanger puts people in clothes so good they get stolen.

Also a stylist to Star Wars lead John Boyega and Oscar-winner Jared Leto, her feed features them looking their sharpest, selfies with Lupita and multiple shots of the cutest dog ever.

Jessica Paster


Clients: Emily Blunt, Olivia Munn, Chrissy Teigen

As well as having the best Instagram handle of the bunch, veteran stylist Jessica Paster also finds time to have Emily Blunt and Miranda Kerr as clients.

If you're into precious gems and huge bunches of flowers her account is the one for you.

Samantha McMillen

Cleints: Elle Fanning

Law Roach

Crazy eyes.... 👀👀👀 But those check bones popping. And I'm with the girls.....lol

A post shared by Law Roach (@luxurylaw) on

Clients: Celine Dion, Zendaya Coleman

You may have noticed Céline Dion looking particularly stylish as of late, but who's the guy behind the looks?

None other than Law Roach.

He also styles ELLE faves Zendaya and Skai Jackson, so Céline has definitely got herself a keeper.

Leith Clark

We did a diary of last night's Chanel fine jewellery dinner. Link in bio 💎 @voguemagazine @chanel

A post shared by Leith Clark (@leithclark) on

Clients: Felicity Jones, Keira Knightley

Leith Clark is Style Director at Large of Harper's Bazaar, stylist to Keira Knightley and, more recently Felicity Jones, founder of Lula magazine, Editor-in-Chief of The Violet Book and a new mum. So, she's pretty busy.

In spite of this, her Instagram is a serene dream complete with a candid of Kirsten Dunst and cute baby shots galore.

Cristina Ehrlich

Clients: Brie Larson, Anna Kendrick, Allison Williams

With a diverse client list from TV favourites Allison Williams and Uzo Aduba to Oscar-winner Brie Larson, Cristina Ehrlich is a very busy stylist.

She only posts the most beautiful close-ups and is perhaps the Shoe Queen of the lot.
