The mark of a true stylist is the ability to make a person look and feel beautiful, without appearing to be too contrived or overly 'made-up'. With a keen eye for style, a lot of creativity, and healthy dose of resourcefulness, Monica Rose is one of the hottest celebrity stylists who manages to do just that. Rose describes styling as something that "always came very naturally to me." Her innate talent for effortlessly creating a stylish ensemble is evident based on the chic looks she creates for clients, who include the Kardashian clan and the ladies of the E! Network’s Daily 10, Debbie Matenopolous and Catt Sadler. I must admit, my addiction to 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' has less to do with delving into the tripple K lives, and more to do with delving into the inner sanctum of their closets. Their looks are so sleek, yet casual, and evoke a sort of everyday elegance that can inspire even the most fashion shy among us to add some glam to our wardrobes.
In May 2009, Rose launched her blog http://monicarosestylist.blogspot.com/ which she created "to show aspiring stylists what I do on various assignments." An invaluable style resource for novice stylists and industry veterans alike, Rose's blog documents her fabulous career, which includes consultation with her clients, prep work, and final outfit tweaks for red carpet events, photo shoots and television shows. Also included on her blog's guide to style are Rose's visions, fashion finds, and style inspirations. I am an avid reader of her blog and have been inspired to the point of sleepless nights and website stalking for one of many cute outfits featured on her site.
Monica Rose is definitely one to watch. From selecting fashion forward pieces, to scouting out the best (and sometimes very affordable) stores, to creating signature looks that exude style and sophistication, Monica's savvy-chic approach to styling will, no doubt, keep her in high demand for many years to come. While I love reading her blog daily for the latest in trends and stylish creations, I'd much rather see Ms. Rose in action, say, in the form of a reality show- La Vie(w) en Rose? How's that for a title? What say you?
