She’s The Mastermind responsible for the success of the A-list influencers from the fashion and celebrity scene. The Los Angeles-based stylist is super glamorous in every occasion: her style can be described as a ‘model off duty’ James Bond Girl. Even the simple looks she styles have a special ‘glamazon’ sophisticated charm. Meet the woman behind all your favorite celebrity street style moments.
Monica Rose is a very busy woman. She is the longtime stylist behind the Kardashian family’s style, but you can see her work in thousands of red carpet appearances and paparazzi photos: Rose’s client list includes the Who’s Who of “It” girls including Gigi and Bella Hadid, Chrissy Teigen and Chanel Iman. Whether it’s Kendall Jenner’s airport ensembles, or Gigi Hadid’s head-to-toe adidas or tomboyish turn in bomber jackets, she gives her clients a sexy, chic, and effortless -‘cool girl’ vibes.
Although each member of her A-list has her own personal style, Rose’s influence is easy to spot: ’90s-inspired, neutral color palette, monochromatic looks in white, tan, black, grey and red, plus signature pieces like the long dramatic coat, cropped top, leather and suede and glamorous jewelry. “The challenge is keeping everyone’s individuality intact while dressing each person for her body type and personality. I want to do the opposite of what’s expected since I am styling so many girls.”
Monica has the ability to make a person look and feel beautiful, without appearing to be too contrived or overly ‘made-up’. Her trademark characteristic is confidence.
Red carpet outfits, everyday looks, airport styles, holiday wardrobes… She makes the designer calls and presents the looks for every occasion. So if you though Kendall Jenner’s aesthetic street style was as casual as they make you think, with those crop tops, trench coats and loose trousers, you’re wrong. Behind every single detail of the look you’ll find the creative mind of Monica talking to every designer to make her client the most fashionable girl on earth, even if she’s just going to grab a coffee at LA’s Alfred Coffee. She also helped put Kylie Jenner into pencil skirts and collaborated on her recent new Puma ad campaign.
Monica is currently outfitting the most-photographed women in the world, and just like everything the Kardashians/Hadids wear, women everywhere want to copy it, elevating Monica to a celebrity status. “It’s flattering. I don’t pay attention until I get all these emails or get tagged on Instagram with young girls sending me ‘inspired by Monica Rose’ outfits.”
