Chances are, you don’t know Kate Young per se. But you definitely know her work. Not only does Young style fashion powerhouses like Natalie Portman and Michelle Williams, the icy blonde with a fondness for red lipstick also styles the looks coming down the runways at Jason Wu fashion shows. (That’s her photographed with him below.)
This year, Young was named one of tinseltown’s Most Powerful Stylists by the Hollywood Reporter. And she’s just landed a high profile gig as the editor-at-large for Macy’s INC, styling looks for the brand’s ads. (She’s wearing INC pieces in that photo to the left.)
As part of her new Macy’s gig, Young has been doing lots of interviews. But she isn’t trying to be the next Rachel Zoe.
“I don’t really want to be a super public person,” Young tells New York Magazine. “I don’t want a reality show. I’m not an actress and I don’t think I have the kind of personality that could carry a show, [although] I really admire the people who can.”
Young has just entered her busiest season of the year—Oscar season.
