Video of the Week #4: Inside the Mind of Brad Goreski

I have to admit right from the beginning that I’m not the biggest fan of Brad Goreski’s personal style because it’s a tad outlandish to my liking and not quite approachable. However, I LOVE his flamboyance and sense of humor. Also, don’t you agree that Jessica Alba is a well-dressed celebrity in Hollywood? I stumbled upon this video the other day on youtube, which is entertaining and informative at the same time. Brad did a surprisingly good job of self-promoting and explaining to us what exactly a (celebrity) stylish does. Which, I think, is necessary because it’s time more light should be shed on the world of celebrity stylists so we can give credit to where it’s due. I mean, c’mon, how many of us look at Anna Hathaway on any red-carpet and instantly think “oh, Rachel Zoe strikes it again?” I used to not particularly favor celebrities who enlist the help of stylists as it just doesn’t accurately represent their sense of style, which in some cases is downright horrifying. I still don’t like it very much, but now that I got the big picture of how interconnected the fashion industry and the show business are, I think yes it’s definitely better if celebrities show up presentable and all the better if fabulously dressed whether they dress themselves or have someone assist them. Just like any other client-oriented service out there, when their clients land on the worst-dressed lists, stylists will take the brunt of the blame in the most public way so if you ask me, I’d say it’s definitely not the easiest job in the world. Additionally, Brad touched on the relationships between stylists, designers and PR agencies, and it seems like there’s quite a lot of hustling involved. So, be prepared. Now, go grab your latte and enjoy 15 minutes of Brad’s fabulousness.
