Icing the rich and famous means dominating the Industry’s lights and cameras with pure fire. The dream job of many fashion gurus and Machiavellis of the world actually requires distinct flare, bound with risk taking and persistent dedication. What do they look for when dressing our favorite performers for mega-events? Celebrity stylist Ilaria Urbinati has done just that, producing some incredible looking stars of the century. In an Interview with Beldora, she speaks about the art of dressing some of the industry’s leading men, and the finishing touches uses to produce that 24k magic air. Beginning with peaking chains, masculine rings and watches- “she is all for the look and incorporates them in each of her ensembles.”
When you think about it, it wouldn’t make sense seeing a celebrity dress in a button down, with an exposed décolleté and nothing framing it. Highlighting exposed areas of the body is a small yet necessary function that Celebrity stylist serve. Jewelry of course amplifies fashion, but it also symbolizes more than that. We know someone is married based on where they wear a ring, and immediately assume how much wealth someone has based on the quality. The latter, applies to men just as much as it does to women.
For men, it is a symbol of strength and power. It’s one of the most common pieces seen on hip hop artists for the reason of illustrating power players. In Urban culture, layered chains, complimented with a diamond encrusted pendant, is recognized as a level of stature in the industry. When Drake released his OVO album, he celebrated his success with a Diamond studded owl pendant-made from over a kilo of gold. He took to Instagram with a video post of the owl’s incredible detail, receiving over 2 million views.Un-traditional jewelry, has actually become the new norm, re-defining the term and allowing celebrity stylists to go bigger and bolder than they had before. Women have hopped on this train too, maybe not with diamond pendants, but in the past century we have seen a shift in premiere trends. This has become prominent in diamond ring sizes, bracelets, even necklaces. Cardi B rolls up on the scene consistently, in a Gucci Link chain and matching bracelet, showing she can play with the big boys in the industry.
