You can’t scroll through Instagram, flick through a magazine, or turn on the TV without seeing the work of Monica Rose. The LA based stylist is responsible for dressing the entire Kardashian family, and subsequently has become one of the most influential people in fashion.
Any star worth their salt hires the help of a stylist to create their red carpet looks (and often their entire wardrobe), and celeb stylists have always had power, but not since Rachel Zoe has one stylist ruled the roost.
Here’s what we know about Monica…
She met Kim before she hit the big time
Monica first worked with Kim way back in 2007 when she was shooting her first ever magazine cover. The pair hit it off and continued to work together, and the rest they say is history.
Monica now styles the whole Kardashian clan
Monica creates the looks for all five of the sisters (and Kris), helping them to define their own unique styles and make the most of their different body shapes. A big part of Monica’s work has been styling the tonnes of outfit changes needed when filming, Keeping Up With Kardashians, and she’s even been responsible for dressing the family for those infamous Christmas cards.
She also helps them out with a whole variety of their personal projects
> Kylie’s latest Puma campaign was styled by Monica
She was involved in styling Kylie’s recent puma campaign, has helped Khloe dress for her new talkshow, Kocktails with Khloe and has played a big part in defining Kendall’s off-duty look.
She has a very specific aesthetic
While she mixes it up for each client, her go-to look is very much 90s inspired with a preference for a neutral colour pallete. She’s a big fan of luxe sportswear, bodycon pieces and the statement coat.
It’s not just the Kardashians who’ve had the Monica Rose treatment
Monica has styled Gigi and Bella Hadid, Chanel Iman and Jenifer Lopez to name a few. Her most recent recruit is new kid on the block , Kaia Crawford (yep, that’s Cindy’s 14 year old daughter), who she dressed for Coachella.
Chrissy Teigan was styled by Monica her throughout her pregnancy
Monica is the one responsible for Chrissy’s amazing pregnancy wardrobe. This woman knows a thing or two about dressing a bump, and Monica was a guest at Chrissy’s McDonald’s themed baby shower.
Jen Atkin is her BFF
Monica and celeb hairstylist Jen Atkin are pretty inseparable if Instagram is anything to go by. The Kardashian glam squad have to stick together, right?!
Her kids are adorable
The mum of two regularly shares snaps of her gorgeous kids. Their Halloween costumes are TOO cute. #family goals.
