Top Five Black Stylists To Follow for Oscars Red Carpet Looks
This years Oscars red carpet promised to add more diversity, and a new wave of style-makers is stepping into the fashion spotlight. These are Five examples of Black Stylists that are making their clients Shine like Diamonds this Sunday night.
Client: Angela Bassett
There are very few actors that do it for me and Angela Bassett is one of them. Her swag says it all. The way every garment that she dawns, either in her foyer before the black car comes, or on the red carpet of another award show nomination; just makes me tingle in all the right places. She is styled exclusively by Jennifer Austin, a Redondo Beach, self-proclaimed “Cali Girl” who could play Angela as a body double.
Client: Michael B. Jordan
When dressing Michael B. Jordan for the Academy Awards, Ade knew she wanted him to stand out by expressing his own personal style. “My job is really to make sure that he’s comfortable is what he’s wearing and too.”
Client: Ava DuVerney, Taraji P. Henson, Yara Shahidi
Jason is really killing the game in styling black influencers. Most of his clients are photographed continuously on daily rotations. Especially during awards season, Jason I’m sure is planning some spectacular and classically shimmering for Ava on the Oscar’s red carpet.
Client: Zendaya, Mary J Blige
Zendaya just landed an Ambassadorship with Lancome
Wayman + Micah
Client: Regina King, Tessa Thompson
When it comes to defining red-carpet moments for Oscar nominees Regina King, it’s all about feeling good for Wayman + Micah, the dynamic duo who have made dramatic and stunning red carpet statements with their client list which includes Regina King, Essence Black Women in Hollywood Awards honoree, KiKi Layne, Tessa Thompson and Forest Whitaker.
