Zoey Deutch loved to make her own clothes when she was in school.

The Zombieland: Double Tap actress revealed in an interview with her stylist Elizabeth Stewart for The Hollywood Reporter that she was very experimental with her style when she growing up and would get creative with her old clothes to make new outfits because she wanted to look like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

“I love thrift shopping and making my own stuff and I was much more out there with it,” she shared. “I would like cut denim pants into like skirts ’cause I wanted to match Mary-Kate and Ashley and then I’d wear like lace thigh-highs (boots) and it, urgh, yeah, not good.”

While the 25-year-old describes her off-duty style as a mix between “grandma chic”, “Amish prairie girl” and a power-dressing lawyer, she is often seen in gorgeous gowns on the red carpet.

Stewart, who also works with the likes of Julia Roberts, Jessica Chastain, and Cate Blanchett, considers the plunging yellow Fendi jumpsuit Deutch wore to the Golden Globes in January to be one of her favourite looks of the past year.

“We were deciding between red or orange or yellow and I went with the yellow,” the star said of the hue, while Stewart added, “The yellow was, to me, the magic touch.”

Zoey also shared that she was uncertain about wearing the Harry Winston diamond and sapphire necklace because it cost $3.6 million (£3 million).

“She had to convince me about the necklace ’cause it was very expensive,” she explained, before adding she got to keep the jumpsuit.

Alexa Chung urges shoppers to buy vintage clothing

Alexa Chung has urged shoppers to ditch fast fashion and invest in vintage clothes instead.

The model and designer, who is currently co-hosting the new Netflix series Next In Fashion with Queer Eye stylist Tan France, is adamant it is still possible to follow current trends without buying from brands that mass produce items.

“Loads of fashion ideas or trends are regurgitated from the past so you could just buy vintage things,” the 36-year-old told BBC Radio 1’s Newsbeat. “They’re readily available, easy and cheap – about three things I’m wearing now are vintage. ”

Alexa also has her own eponymous clothing line, which she was keen to make available to hire for those who would not be able to afford to buy her pieces off the rack.

“It’s something celebrities have the luxury of doing because they borrow from a fashion house and then they send it back and they’re just wearing it for one event,” she explained. “Sharing clothes is such a brilliant idea because it’s true that you might want something special for one occasion, but you don’t want to keep it in your wardrobe.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the TV presenter shared her excitement over Next In Fashion, insisting the programme gives up and coming designers a chance to shine.

“It’s quite typical that you can be one of the most talented people at a company but you’re not necessarily the name of the house. This show gives them a chance if they want to start their own brand and really drive their business forward,” Alexa shared.

Alexa and Tan will serve as both co-hosts and judges on Next In Fashion, as they critique the contestants’ offerings alongside famous faces including designer Tommy Hilfiger, model Adriana Lima, and celebrity stylist Elizabeth Stewart.

The winner will be awarded a $250,000 (£191,500) cash prize, as well as the chance to create a range for Net-a-Porter.

Alexa Chung and Tan France will co-host a new fashion series heading to Netflix.

The model and designer has teamed up with the much-loved Queer Eye stylist to find the next big name in fashion on their new show, Next In Fashion.

According to Harper’s Bazaar, the duo will front the high-stakes competition series, in which 18 designers face challenges focusing on a different trend or design style that has influenced the way we dress.

The contestants, who have already worked for major fashion brands and celebrities, will compete head-to-head, and the lucky winner will receive $250,000 and the opportunity to debut their collection with luxury retailer Net-a-Porter.

The 10-episode long series will also feature stylist Elizabeth Stewart and director of fashion partnerships at Instagram Eva Chen as judges, with additional guest judges to be announced at a later date.

France, who is releasing his new memoir Naturally Tan in June, took to Instagram to share the exciting news.

“ANNOUNCEMENT!! Beyond excited to host Netflix’s first fashion show @nextinfashion with the one and only, my new work wife, @alexachung. Coming soon!” he wrote alongside a snap of him with Chung.

Chung, who has been busy working on her eponymous fashion brand, shared her glee at working with the Queer Eye star.

“Netflix and chill? Incredibly excited to be hosting Netflix’s first fashion show @nextinfashion alongside my new husband @tanfrance Coming soon! Yeah I like to tuck I got a tucking problem,” she wrote, referencing France’s love for tucking in shirts on his makeover show.

Lady Gaga’s stylists Tom Eerebout and Sandra Amador have landed the top spot on The Hollywood Reporter’s 25 Most Powerful Stylists list for 2019.

The duo was behind Gaga’s showstopping looks for the press tour of A Star is Born, and then all through awards season, which saw her pick up an Oscar, Golden Globe, and BAFTA for the film’s song Shallow, and an acting gong at the Critics’ Choice Awards.

Crowning the pink feathered Valentino haute couture dress Gaga wore to the Venice Film Festival as the last year’s top style moment, Sandra recalled: “It was the first premiere, so all the elements – the grandeur of Venice, the thunderstorm, the introduction of Lady Gaga and this campaign – were cinematic.”

Tom and Sandra are now gearing up to dress the singer/actress for the Met Gala in May.

The second-place spot went to Ilaria Urbinati, who has won praise for her work with Rami Malek, Armie Hammer, Bradley Cooper, Donald Glover, John Krasinski, Chris Evans, and Dwayne Johnson.

Talking about the recent awards season, which saw Rami go home with a clutch of Best Actor gongs, including the Academy Award, Ilaria said it can be a tough task avoiding repetition.

“You get to a point (where) you’re literally running out of clothes,” she shared. “We ended up doing a lot of custom looks.”

Gemma Chan’s stylist Rebecca Corbin-Murray came in bronze. Rebecca also dresses Lily James, but it’s her work with Crazy Rich Asians star Gemma that has propelled her into the spotlight.

Elizabeth Stewart, who works with Julia Roberts, Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Viola Davis, Gal Gadot, and Jessica Chastain, came in fourth, while Petra Flannery, the go-to stylist for Emma Stone, Amy Adams, and Emilia Clarke, rounded out the top five.

Julia Roberts has found a “dream girlfriend” in stylist Elizabeth Stewart.

The actress credits the fashion visionary for her flawless red carpet style and reveals she can rely on her when it comes to relieving the stress of having to pick out outfits for events.

“Elizabeth is like the dream girlfriend who builds a closet around your trip and (says), ‘Oh, this is what you can wear to lunch, and then when you work that evening, you can wear this, and then, you can change into these shoes’. It’s a dream scenario,” she tells The Hollywood Reporter.

Stewart is behind some of the star’s most famous looks, including the vintage black and white Valentino dress Julia wore to the 2001 Academy Awards, when she picked up the Best Actress Oscar for her role in Erin Brockovich.

“It takes a village,” she shares. “This woman is tireless in her efforts to make me look like I am effortless.”

The interview with Roberts is part of the publication’s 25 Most Powerful Stylists in Hollywood issue, which also features Emily Blunt and her stylist Jessica Paster.

In a sit down for the feature, Blunt recalls Paster’s influence on her love of self expression through fashion.

“I do really love red carpets because they’re full of fantasia and it’s so not what I wear every day, and so I think she’s taught me a great deal about boldness and it can bring out an element of yourself you didn’t quite know was there, and I think then the dress never wears you,” Blunt shares. “You’re always comfortable.”

Rebel Wilson dazzled in custom Givenchy at 2018 InStyle Awards on Monday night (22Oct18).

The comedy star led a parade of celebrities at the Getty Center in Los Angeles and stood out in a black lace Givenchy dress designed for her by artistic director Clare Waight Keller.

In a chat with People.com, the Pitch Perfect actress explained that her garment was particularly special because it is the first custom piece Clare has overseen since creating Meghan, Duchess of Sussex’s wedding gown back in May.

“I think the last big couture piece that Clare Waight Keller did was Meghan Markle’s wedding dress,” the 38-year-old explained to the publication. “And now she’s making me a dress so that’s kind of amazing just in and of itself. But then factor in the fact that it’s Givenchy – an amazing Paris fashion house – I’m a bit shocked how it all happened but really grateful. I think it’s a really cool move that they’re being inclusive with someone like me.”

During the ceremony, Rebel took to the stage to present her stylist Elizabeth Stewart, who also works with Julia Roberts, Cate Blanchett, Gal Gadot, Viola Davis, Jessica Chastain and Sandra Bullock, with the Stylist of the Year Award.

“Tonight I had the honour of presenting the Stylist of the Year Award to my brilliant stylist @elizabethstewart1 x even though she styles all the cool chicks like Julia, Cate, Gal, Viola, Jessica, Sandra…somehow this cool chick has time for me!” Rebel wrote alongside a photo of herself with Elizabeth at the bash. “Congrats Elizabeth, you deserve all the trophies! You’re so creative, talented, generous and kind!”

Other stars to get dressed up for the event included Storm Reid, who sported a black sequin Preen number, and Lea Michele, who opted for a David Koma slip dress.

Tracee Ellis Ross wore a Giambattista Valli Couture dress with Irene Neuwirth jewellery, Busy Philipps chose an Off-White ensemble and Miranda Kerr stepped out in a gold sequin Tom Ford minidress and black Chanel coat.

But style star Elizabeth and Oscar-winning actress Julia made a real sartorial statement by posing together in matching lilac Givenchy suits, Jacquie Aiche necklaces and Clergerie shoes.

Julia was presented with the Style Icon Award, Clare received Fashion Designer of the Year, Jeff Goldblum took home Man of Style, stylist Karla Welch was named Voice of Style and actress Constance Wu was awarded Badass Woman.

In addition, Jennifer Aniston’s hairstylist Chris McMillan was honoured with Hairstylist of the Year and James Kaliardos won Make-up Artist of the Year.

Julia Roberts became a style icon at 22

Julia Roberts credits her 22-year-old self for giving her the courage to make bold fashion choices early in her career.

The actress was presented with the 2018 Style Icon Award during the InStyle Awards on Monday (22Oct18), and while accepting the honour, she thanked her team – and her younger self.

Roberts revealed she was unfamiliar with the process of working with a stylist when she started out, so she selected items on her own.

“If I were to take any credit, I would thank 22-year-old version of me, who wore, ad nauseam, a sort-of-like high-ranking naval jacket that I found at a vintage store with inexplicable black-and-white horizontal striped leggings and thought I was fantastic,” she shared. “For that girl, I thank you.”

The star also noted she isn’t a fan of shopping for clothing and instead relies on stylist Elizabeth Stewart to select her looks.

“When you’re popular and tall, you just have these incredibly smart people to your house with racks of stunning things… This award is for being good at saying, ‘Oh, I think that, that one’,” she joked.

“I went from pointing at the right stuff. That’s honestly the whole thing. I never go shopping. I just said I wanted to wear these shoes and that makes me somehow great in a very pretend way.”

Roberts decided to copy her stylist Stewart’s look for the event as they both sported similar Givenchy suits.

“It’s not often that we get to go to something together, and I said, ‘You know, because we do look alike…, what if we wore, like, a similar… Let’s wear the same thing,” she told InStyle ahead of the ceremony. “That could be fun.”

Stewart was also honoured during the ceremony, receiving the Stylist of the Year Award.

It was a big night for ’90s icons, with Jennifer Aniston also taking the stage to pay tribute to the stylist behind her famous Friends haircut, 25 years after the look had fans rushing to salons to look just like her character, Rachel Green.

The actress presented Chris McMillan with the Hairstylist of the Year Award during the ceremony and recalled the history of their friendship, which began on the set of the hit sitcom in 1994.

“I am here tonight because I get to talk about my dearest friend, my brother from another mother, my husband that will never marry me because he’s gay, but maybe – there have been movies about that – Chris McMillan,” Aniston joked. “I just have a few things to say about you: You’re one of the most passionate and kind human beings that I’ve had the good fortune of getting to know and I get to call you my family. I feel blessed every day for that. We’re going on almost 25 years together, which is shocking to me.”

Cate Blanchett’s stylist discusses star’s Cannes wardrobe

Cate Blanchett’s stylist Elizabeth Stewart describes dressing the star for the Cannes Film Festival as “an opportunity to tell a story”.

For the 2018 film extravaganza, which kicked off last Tuesday (08May18), Australian actress Cate is acting as the Cannes jury president, so will be snapped even more than usual as she attends countless events.

Super stylist Elizabeth is on hand to make sure she always stuns, with the 49-year-old already modelling pieces by Mary Katrantzou and a black lace Armani Prive she previously wore to the 2014 Golden Globes.

“It’s an opportunity to tell a story,” Elizabeth enthused to The Hollywood Reporter. “Back (in 2006 when she first worked with Cate and Cannes) it was just, ‘I love this dress!’ Now, I know how to strategise.”

For last year’s festival, Elizabeth styled Jessica Chastain when she sat on the jury, so knew exactly what was needed when it came to Cate’s Cannes looks.

“Jessica was photographed every minute of every day, so for Cate, we’re working on day looks, looks for jury photo calls, dinners and red carpet events, probably about 20 looks in all,” she added.

As well as recycling looks, Cate and Elizabeth are also working with emerging designers to ensure they have “a chance in a super-crowded field”.

And the pair have been paying particular attention to brands which share their eco-friendly approach to fashion.

“I recently had lunch with the young designer Esteban Cortazar, who is using mushroom leather and looking at how to get silk from spider webs. Designers are thinking about this stuff now and it matters to them. Our choices are reflective of things people are talking about,” she stated.

The 2018 Cannes Film Festival runs until 19 May.
