Well, no one can say Hollywood had the same ol', same ol' this past year. Not long ago, few knew the names Brie Larson, Alicia Vikander, Saoirse Ronan, Daisy Ridley and Rami Malek. Today, they're among the hottest talent in the world thanks to a few Oscars, award noms, big movies and Emmy-winning TV shows. But the long march from oblivion to A-list isn't an individual journey. At every step of the way is a stylist who helps craft the look and story of each star. "I didn't know that much about the fashion world, so it's good to have somebody who understands what's going on," says Larson of Cristina Ehrlich (No. 2 on THR's list), who began dressing the indie breakout like she mattered in Chanel, Celine and Jason Wu, as her role in Room gained buzz, with the denouement a Gucci cobalt dress she wore to accept her best actress Oscar. Brooke Wall, CEO of The Wall Group, which was acquired by WME/IMG in July and reps 15 of the 25 stylists on 2016's list, says crisply, "There's a strategy behind every look." Mark Shapiro, WME/IMG's chief content officer, adds: "Perception is reality in this business. By pairing the right individuals in this always-on media environment, our stylists can change public opinion, attract opportunities and help their clients be the best versions of themselves."
