This is just what the name implies: On Fridays, I ask someone interesting a question and request that she/he respond in 50 words or less.
Or somewhere in the ballpark of 50 words. That’s why there’s an “-ish.” I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but this site isn’t exactly a bastion of rigidity.
My guest this week is Heather Campbell-Green, the founder and editorial director of CelebrityStyleGuide.com, which she launched in 2005. Dedicated to celebrity style and fashion, clothes, and accessories, the site taps into her network of designers and costumers from TV shows and movies as well as agents, assistants, stylists, and even the celebrities themselves to find out what the stars are wearing and where you can get it.
Consider my Jon Cryer game about to be upped.
(Someone once told me I look like him. I’ve been processing that for the better part of the 2000s.)
Fortunately, Celebrity Style Guide covers people much more fashionable than me and Jon Cryer. And double fortunately, Heather, whom you can find on Twitter as @CelebStyleGuide, was kind enough to answer multiple questions.
What inspired you to start Celebrity Style Guide, and to what do you attribute its staying power?
I’ve always loved fashion seen on TV, and an obsession started in 2004 with Jennifer Aniston on Friends. I developed a friendship with the costumer and got the scoop on what Rachel wore. It was my husband’s idea to start the site, and he built it. It’s remained popular because it’s accurate and updated daily.
Do you have a sense of which celebrities’ looks are most frequently shopped through Celebrity Style Guide?
Fans definitely like the fashion seen on TV. A close second is what the celebrities wear in their everyday lives.
If you could have unlimited access to any three celebrities’ wardrobes for your personal style needs, whom would you choose and why?
Hilary Duff, I love her laid-back California style that is always put together beautifully.
Lauren Conrad, she inspires my “going out” and “date night” style.
Victoria Beckham … enough said.
OK, so maybe I look a little like Jon Cryer:
Is that so bad? He seems like a pretty good dude. You people are vultures.
Huge thanks to Heather for stopping by this week and for being the personal stylist none of us ever had.
