It was such an honor to receive an email asking if I’d like to write about stylist to the stars and interior designer, Estee Stanley. YES, PLEASE!
I’ve admired Estee’s style for years since seeing her work in Domino and Glamour Magazine. I think Estee’s deserves a decent amount of credit for making this new generation of decor that is modern, fun, livable and a bit bohemian. Estee’s stylish looks have roots in Hollywood with more than 15 years as a celebrated fashion stylist to the stars.
Once her clients recognized Estee could style so much more than looks for the red carpet… her interior design career was born. Estee was kind enough to answer the pressing questions from a girl always looking for some serious life + style. Thank you Estee!

You style the A-List in Hollywood… give us 2 tricks for always being camera ready?
I live for nipple covers. I use them the most and they’re genius for the red carpet. I also love Cosabella g-strings with the mesh front – it’s like wearing nothing underneath.
Sun or Snow?
Both!! Snow is great because I don’t ski so I get to relax in the lodge. Sun too though – nothing is more amazing to me than laying on the beach and getting sun kissed!
1 essential item to pack for a snow vacation?
Sorel boots are great because they keep you so warm, even if you’re wearing a t-shirt.
1 essential item to pack for a sun vacation?
I can’t live without a huge pair of Oliver Peoples sunglasses.
