Have you met Monica Rose? It’s time to get to know this stylist a little better! By now, she’s become one of the most sought-out celebrity stylists in L.A. thanks to a client roster that includes some of the ubiquitous and influential stars in Hollywood — i.e. Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, Chrissy Teigen, Gigi Hadid, Kaia Gerber and more — who all trust and rely on her for Rose’s signature brand of sexy, cool looks.
Now she’s telling us exactly how she does it. In this week’s issue of PEOPLE, Rose, 35, takes us inside her Los Angeles studio and gives us the scoop on her career and her clientele. “I could never have imagined this life in a million years,” she tells PeopleStyle.
So what are the tricks she uses for her clients’ style? Watch the video above for her dish on some of her favorite looks ever. Some of the highlights are below.
The daring look: The nude Balmain skirt, top and bodysuit was actually toned down from the original totally sheer look. Says Rose, “I thought since it was for Ellen and since it was daytime, we had to add a slip on it and not make it so sexy, so ‘night.’”
Her style mantra for Khloe: When it comes to Khloe’s current style, it’s all about body-con. “I’ve worked with Khloe now for nine years and I’ve seen her go through so many different [phases],” says Rose. “She’s worked so hard to get to where she is with her body. I just want to put her in everything tight. I just want to show how hard she’s worked for that body, good for her! Every single time we’re in a fitting I have to have my seamstress with me to measure her waist because she’s losing so much weight. She’s so into this ‘revenge’ body. She’s just amazing.”
