June Ambrose Makes ‘25 Most Powerful Stylists in Hollywood’ List

March 10th, 2011

All that power.

It’s no secret that stylist hold an insane amount of power over what we think about their celebrity clients. Take an artist like Rihanna for instance: sure we love her music, but a huge part of her appeal is the trend setting styles she’s snapped in on the streets and stage alike and she, like many other entertainers, don’t come up with these outfits on her own. The Hollywood Reporter gave nod to the fashion mavens that sift through racks to find the hottest looks that make us ohh and ahh on the red carpet and in paparazzi shots for their first ever “25 Most Powerful Stylists in Hollywood” List.

Rachel Zoe topped the list at #1, and yes, Rihanna’s style team Rob Zangardi & Mariel Haenn also made the list at #15 for keeping the Loud singer’s look fresh and also creating looks for stars like Willow Smith and Jennifer Lopez that keep us buzzing, but we were also excited to see vetran stylist June Ambrose being recognized for making the industry that much more fly.

The only African-American stylist on the list, Ambrose has worked with everyone from Jay-Z, Diddy and Mariah Carey and has lended her sartorial direction to completely revamp the looks of newer starlets like Chrisette Michele (where do you think the singer got the turban inspiration from?) and Jasmine Sullivan. Ambrose also has a book, “Effortless Style,” under her belt, has hosted an array of fashion segments for VH1, MTV, and “The View,” and is reportedly fronting her own reality show for VH1 in the future

For now, you can get your fill of the super-stylist through her YouTube videos and Twitter page (@juneAmbrose) where she spills daily “chai tea”–or fashiondish–on her latest style finds, behind the scenes scoops from her celebrity shoots, her own looks and outfit credits, and how she juggles the job with being a mom. No doubt, Ambrose is in a perfect position to ascend from the #23 spot closer to the top of this list in years to come. Congrats!
