Fashionista.com: Post-Monica Rose, who’s dressing the most-watched celebrity family?
It’s been less than six months since word got out that stylist Monica Rose had split from the Kardashian-Jenner family. The celebrity stylist had been working with many of the famous sisters for nearly a decade, shaping a signature aesthetic of ’90s-style cutout minidresses and chokers for the social media generation.
But now that both parties have moved on to other sartorial pastures, it’s time to take a look at what Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Kendall and Kylie have been wearing for their subsequent sartorial evolution — and who, exactly, are the stylists behind it all.
Read on to learn more about the ladies responsible for outfitting the most-watched-and-followed celebrity family.
Jill Jacobs, stylist to Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian
If you’re tuning in to “Life of Kylie,” you may have caught a glimpse of the youngest Jenner’s stylist Jill Jacobs. She assisted Rose before taking on the sole role of styling Jenner in 2016. Jacobs hails from a small town in Oregon and moved to Los Angeles to study at FIDM while juggling an internship with Revolve. The online retailer eventually gave Jacobs a full-time gig as a junior stylist, which soon turned into a head-stylist position until she was running all of women’s merchandising on Revolve’s website. After, she went on to do in-house styling and merchandising for brands like Kelly Wearstler and Monrow, in addition to styling magazine editorials on the side. But it was personal styling and shopping that Jacobs realized she loved the most. “I decided to focus on that route,” Jacobs tells Fashionista. “All in all, about eight years later, here I am.”
Though Jacobs has had her fair share of highs and lows, she considers working with Kylie one of the big breaks for her career.
“With Kylie, it’s definitely a collaboration,” says Jacobs.
“She has such great style and such a keen eye on her own. I always like to bring a lot of cool things to work with to the table — finding emerging designers or the dopest of the new that’s out. We definitely do a lot of looks, and we’re always looking for different and fresh pieces.”
In addition to Jenner, Jacobs also works with Khloe Kardashian, Jasmine Sanders and makeup artist-turned-influencer Desi Perkins. While her clients are almost always in the spotlight, Jacobs says she does more styling for personal appearances rather than the red carpet.
“You’re making sure everything is on point from every angle,” says Jacobs on the styling process.
When she’s coming up with street style looks, it’s much more effortless, and her go-to styling tip lately has been a “monochromatic vibe,” whether it’s all-black, denim-on-denim or different tones of one color. “I feel like that always reads really well,” says Jacobs. “You can never go wrong. I tend to be more minimal on accessories, too, like layers of dainty jewelry or a statement earring.”
Currently, Jacobs is hard at work prepping for a slew of Fashion Month appearances, which means we just might see Kylie and Khloe very soon at New York Fashion Week. (I hope to see KOKO soon)!!!!
