The results are in. Today, The Hollywood Reporter released its third annual list of Hollywood’s 25 Most Powerful Stylists. The winners include big names we’ve been hearing a lot about of late—Kate Young, who’s been whipping up a buzz with her new Target collection (and who styles Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, and Natalie Portman), came in at number four. Elizabeth Stewart, who chronicled her experience styling Amanda Seyfried, Jessica Chastain, Julia Roberts, and Cody Horn for the Golden Globes for Style.com, came in at number five. And Rachel Zoe, who styled Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence in their much-talked-about Oscar gowns, slid in at number three. Petra Flannery, who styles Emma Stone, Zoe Saldana, and Megan Fox, was this year’s runner-up. And the big winner is (drumroll, please) Leslie Fremar, who styles discerning stars like Julianne Moore, Charlize Theron, and Jennifer Connelly. A surprise on the list was designer (and Mick Jagger’s girlfriend) L’Wren Scott, who came in at number sixteen for dressing Nicole Kidman.
Zoe Saldana has a talent for rocking runway looks on the red carpet (the pastel brocade Prabal Gurung pantsuit she wore to the designer’s Fall 2012 show and the Givenchy Couture white dress she donned at the 2012 SAG Awards come to mind). But the actress has a knack for putting together laid-back (but no less chic) everyday outfits, too. She was recently snapped in L.A. wearing Diane von Furstenberg cargo pants, a classic white T-shirt, and a Gentsco baseball cap. Get her look with the essentials below.

Katherine Hooker and the Duchess of Cambridge share more than a first name; the stylish Londoners have mastered the distinction between conservative and commonplace—expert tailoring. Though the designer’s following truly exploded after Kate Middleton landed on best-dressed lists wearing the designer’s widely popular Buxton and Contrast coats, to her credit, the U.K.-based design veteran had cultivated quite a respectable clientele prior to that (aside from Middleton, she counts Yoko Ono, Meryl Streep, and Zoe Saldana as A-list fans). Luckily for stateside coveteurs of Hooker’s line, she’s brought her New York pop-up shop back to Soho for its third season (it’s her only bricks-and-mortar presence outside of London), where they can buy pieces from her ready-to-wear line (Fall ’12 and Spring ’13) or make use of her made-to-order services.
“[Kate] is an absolutely lovely person, and she’s got great style,” Hooker tells Style.com of her royal fan. “She’s had a very positive impact and is a fantastic person to have on all sides affecting [our growth].” Growth, indeed. Over a decade ago, Hooker traveled to India in hopes of replicating a beloved vintage jacket; 20 attempts and six silhouettes later, she returned to England with a newfound fashion addiction. Nowadays, her offerings include menswear, waistcoats, and accessories—particularly, a hot-off-the-press Harvey messenger bag. Though Ms. Middleton hasn’t placed her requests for next season, we can already see her in numbers like the Cain blazer and matching pencil skirt. We’d suggest you place your order now. The designer is set to expand her U.S. presence in the near future, starting with a New York showroom. Here, a first look at her Spring ’13 collection.
The Katherine Hooker pop-up shop, open through October 14, is located at 436 Broadway, NYC.
