In 2004, celebrity stylist, host and fashion speaker Kalee studied for her Fashion BA Honours in Sussex. Since then it has been a non-stop whirl of fabulous frocks, stylish suits, adorable accessories and all things fashion and beyond!
Having worked in the industry for over ten years, our very own Sussex stylist divides her time between the glamorous celebrity filled Los Angeles and the more down-to-earth on-trend UK, working on feature films, TV, commercials, pop promos. and prominent magazine titles.
If you have ever watched online fashion programmes ‘themuse.tv’ and ‘Motel Rocks’, you’ll see our girl whizzing around stores such as H&M picking out the latest in trends and making them work for us ‘everyday people’ (sort of like having your own stylist without the price tag!) Having watched these myself and being an avid reader of her blog ‘The Style Hanger’, it’s easy to see how her warm personality, huge range of fashion knowledge and her friendly on the eye appearance (yes, damn it, this girl is also gorgeous) works for everyone from renowned celebrities to the more practical side ofthings. In collaboration with ‘Slendertone’, Kalee has given constructive and on-trend fashion tips through their social media sites on how to dress for various body shapes, where she manages to be a more approachable and younger ‘Trinny and Suzannah’ all rolled in to one!
Always with an eye on what’s happening on the current season catwalks “For this Spring/Summer collections I’m in love with the beautiful soft pastel suedes I saw at Chloe and the military detailing at the Marc Jacobs show” and the individual styles of celebrities “I love Olivia Polermo’s eclectic style. She has a great eye for mixing prints and she takes risks. She will always throw something unexpected into the mix and it works”. It’s this attention to detail and Kalee’s enthusiasm for all things fashion and beauty that keeps huge named brands such as ‘Rimmel London’ who she reports for direct from the runway at ‘London Fashion Week’ and ‘The Clothes Show Live’ coming back for more.
I asked our ‘finger-on-the pulse’ fashionista how she would describe style in a just a few words “I think it depends on age. I used to be all about bohemian with a rock and roll edge, yet over time I have been nodding to the more clean tailored pieces that you would expect to see on Gwyneth Paltrow. These days it’s all about the right fit”….and yes, I can see what she means, and it is this creative yet pragmatic handle on the fashion world that keeps Kalee one hot girl in demand.
