We have discussed extensively on this site how clothes, style, and fashion are part of the work of Hollywood. Extensively. The Hollywood Reporter now publishes an annual Power Stylists list, featuring celebrities and their stylists, and how they put together looks to promote their projects, highlighting the hard work of the stylists, the thought that goes into a press tour wardrobe, or a television character’s clothes, and how a celebrity’s style strategy can lead to more work, particularly for women – and in securing the kind of work that results directly from their clothing, it allows them more freedom to wait for and choose the kind of acting or producing or directing work that they feel most strongly about. Full Story

You probably don’t know Mary Halsey by name. You probably have seen the video of her rapping to Missy Elliott’s “Work It.” I’ve tried to do this song at karaoke and it is HARD.
