Her Instagram page is packed with close to 3,000 posts, boasting a following of 80,000.

All of the above statistics mean that Cristina's dressed list boasts of celebrity clientele that includes names such as Penelope Cruz, Tina Fey, Anna Kendrick, Allison Williams, Amy Adams, Margot Robbie, Priyanka Chopra, Brie Larson, Lena Dunham, and Julia Louis Dreyfus.

Elizabeth Stewart refers to herself merely as a celebrity stylist living in Los Angeles! And that is the truth—because Stewart has catered to the fashion needs and styling of Hollywood A-listers such as Cate Blanchett, Julia Roberts, Amanda Seyfried, Jessica Chastain, and Viola Davis for years.

Elizabeth’s M.O, which could be yours, by the way, is this: She never forces her clients into anything. They have to love it, just as she likes it for it to stick! Elizabeth’s other style centers on paying attention to underpinnings and tailoring once the client selects the right dress.

Monica Rose is one of the most famous fashion stylists on Instagram, and one of the most influential you’ll find around, and for many good reasons.
