Gilt Groupe’s Celebrity Stylist Series starts Friday

January 28, 2011 |  8:00 am


Celebrity stylists are still all the rage. Everyone either has a stylist or wants to be one (a place called the School of Style just opened in L.A and N.Y. for wannabe stylists to learn some tricks of the trade). And labels like Theory have put stylists front and center, leveraging the brand with notable stylist names for ad campaigns and look books.

The reach and influence of celebrity stylists show no signs of stopping. Case in point: Gilt Groupe’s new feature called Celebrity Style Series, which starts Friday at 9 a.m. PST. The website has tapped several celeb stylists to conceptualize their own theme for a sale and style on 7-9 looks from various vendors to sell online for 36 hours (the duration all Gilt sales generally last).

The first stylist up is Lee Harris, best known for dressing Drew Barrymore in glam, but more often offbeat ensembles.  He also shares his styling tips, wardrobe essentials and what makes a successful red carpet moment, as seen in the video above.

A new celebrity stylist will appear with a sale the last Friday of each month. So watch for your favorite image maker to appear on screen soon -– with a slew of clothes to sell at sample sale prices, natch.
