I first saw a picture of Kate Young about two years ago, ripped from a magazine, wearing a white lace dress, a black cropped blazer with 3/4-length sleeves, black tights and chunky black wedges. Plus, of course, her signature, platinum blonde hair.
Sometime after that, I did a Google search on her and found an interview she did for NY Mag. Since then, she has gone on to style celebrities like Michelle Williams, Natalie Portman and more.
For a perfect example of her styling sensibilities, she dressed Michelle Williams in that Oscars dress – the gorgeous, marigold Vera Wang Dress, paired with the red lipstick and antique necklace. A dress that will go down in Oscars history.
Accompanying the article was the third picture above, of Kate Young in a fantastic leopard fur coat, wedges with socks (!) and jeans. Kate wears a great mix of modern basics and vintage. Her hair keeps her looking fresh and cute. This is a favourite outfit of mine that I go back to time and time again.
Another favourite: the first picture above. I love the long, grey sweater over what appears to be a frilly, white dress. I always admire people who can pair a simple piece with something different, such as a vintage dress, and create a look that is totally modern and hip.
Some of Kate Young’s favourite things, taken from this Vanity Fair article:
Underwear: Andres Sarda.
