In the March issue of The Hollywood Reporter, we get a glimpse of The 25 Most Powerful Stylists in Hollywood by Carol McColgin. This is the magazine’s seventh annual list. You really don’t think of stylists as artists, but when you see their clients and the looks they create, well let’s just say they create a work of art.

Shadow Spotlight: Coco Chanel

March 13 / 17 Hello! Change of plans for Shadow Spotlight. In honor of Women’s History Month, the spotlight falls on Coco Chanel. The women before us have carved a path in many areas and Chanel carved her path in fashion. She made history in fashion. Chanel continues to this day to inspire what fashion is. Found a short documentary and a two-part 1969 interview with the woman herself. I hope it will give a glimpse of who Coco was as a fashion designer and a woman who wasn’t afraid to put her own stamp in the world.             The interview is in French. All you have to do is click on the cc button on the lower right-hand corner. Then click settings, go to auto-translate, click English and there you go.                                                 featured image: Philippine Tatler, Pinterest, cbys.tk, & The Red List

Shadow Spotlight: Pat McGrath

Feb. 13 / 17 Hey there! A new week and there is a lot to cover, so let’s get started. Pat McGrath is this month’s Shadow Spotlight and perfect for Black History Month in fashion. Vogue magazine has called this makeup guru the most influential makeup artist in the world and she deserves that right. Born in Northampton, England to a Jamaican immigrant mother, McGrath always had a love for fashion and makeup. That credit goes to her mom. Known for her colorful and out of this world makeup looks, McGrath is the one designers call for when fashion week comes. McGrath had no formal training in either fashion or make-up. The closest to training was the completion of an art foundation course at a college in Northampton. In the early 1990’s her career breakthrough came when she worked with then fashion editor of i-D magazine, Edward Enninful. She has worked with photographers such as Steven Meisel, Paolo Roversi, Helmut Newton, and Peter Lindbergh. Designers such as Prada, Miu Miu, Comme des Garcons, Dolce & Gabbana, Jil Sander, John …

Wednesday Scene: Liz Claiborne Design Scholarship Award

Jan. 25 / 17 Hello, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything in fashion. I’m always searching or researching for any signs that might peak the interests of those who love fashion. I always think that fashion is another form of art and creativity. This right here is a great opportunity to get your foot in the door of fashion. The Liz Claiborne Design Scholarship Award is here. From what I read, this is for full-time, third-year undergraduate students in good academic standing with an accredited American college or university. To know more, keep reading…… from the council of fashion designers of america website “As a designer, Ms. Claiborne did not care to be considered a trendsetter. She placed practical concerns over the glamour of the catwalks and the prestige of designer prices. Her arrival as a fashion brand was well-timed, catching the beginning of a great change in American society as women headed to the workplace in large numbers.” – Eric Wilson, New York Times, 2007   In 2009, the Council of Fashion Designers …
