What is appropriate power dressing in the C-suite and on the red carpet? Seven fashion experts debate: "What you wear changes your ability to level up." Getting dressed for work in Hollywood has come a long way since the "power suit," a term inspired by the look that Giorgio Armani created for Richard Gere in 1980's American Gigolo.
There’s no denying that stylists are major power players in the red-carpet game; they determine which designer dresses end up on which celebrities.

For its 30th anniversary, BCBG Max Azria is heightening its profile by appointing stylist Kate Young as creative consultant and tapping Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to appear in its spring 2019 campaign.

Young, who signed not long after Marquee Brands took control of BCBG, is working alongside creative director Bernd Kroeber, who worked with Joyce Azria as part of BCBGeneration team.
