eslie Fremar, who is also responsible for the red carpet style of Julianne Moore, Reese Witherspoon and Scarlett Johansson topped a list by the Hollywood Reporter.

Behind every seemingly effortless red carpet moment, lies a team of unseen preeners, from make-up artists and hair stylists to posture coaches (we're not kidding) and perhaps most importantly, wardrobe stylist.

For three years now, The Hollywood Reporter , the American weekly entertainment magazine, has been putting the spotlight on Tinseltown's taste-makers with its annual Stylists Issue. In the latest issue, Jennifer Lopez, Zoe Saldana, Taylor Swift and Julianne Moore can be seen posing alongside the person they trust the most to ensure they look nothing short of fabulous in the spotlight, across four covers.


In THR's view, New York-based Leslie Fremar is. Topping the publication's 25 Most Powerful Stylists List, Fremar is described as having a 'near-flawless red-carpet track record' and a 'fiercely loyal A-list clientele and long-term working relationships with some of the fashion industry's most sought-after designers' (Raf Simons of Dior gets a firm name-check). She travels twice a month Los Angeles for her clients, who include Julianne Moore, Charlize Theron, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Connelly.


"I stick to my instincts, and if something gets me really excited when I see it initially, I know it's going to be a home run," explains Fremar in the interview.


Hot on Fremar's heels at number two is Petra Flannery, who somehow juggles not making her starlets Emma Stone, Mila Kunis and Zoe Saldana look like clones; ranked in third position is stylist-turned-designer Rachel Zoe, she of the fondness for huge sunglasses and dressing Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Hudson.
