Industry Insider: Penny Lovell

These days, pushing the sartorial envelope on the red carpet while also remaining appropriate and unforgettably chic is no easy task, yet stylist Penny Lovell seems to nail an elegantly edgy look on each of her star clients, every single time.

The British born, Los Angeles-based Power Stylist (she was named to The Hollywood Reporter’s Top 25 Power Stylists for the past two years), started her career styling magazine editorials and upon working with Keira Knightly on a photo shoot, promptly began dressing the actress for her numerous appearances.

Years later, she has added Anne Hathaway, Rose Byrne, Taylor Schilling, Bella Heathcote and Olivia Cooke to her client roster, bringing her impressive aesthetic (who can forget the immaculate white Elie Saab jumpsuit Byrne wore to the 2012 SAG awards that cemented her as a style setter?), to every event she is tasked with creating a look for.

Here, Lovell shares her Insider perspective on this Sunday’s Emmys, plus the celebrities she is looking forward to seeing hit the red carpet this awards season.

Beladora: Who are you dressing for the Emmys this year? And what is your general approach to the Emmys as opposed to other awards shows?

Penny Lovell: I’m dressing Taylor Schilling. The Emmys is great fun, it’s usually very hot in September and since the date is just after vacation season, everyone feels more relaxed than the awards shows later on. My approach is the same as with all shows though, which is just to make sure the ladies feel and look great on the day.

B: Have you always loved jewelry and accessories? What was your first experience realizing they could really change an entire outfit?

PL: I love jewelry. It’s game changing. A simple look can have a totally different feel depending on how you accessorize. It can go from edgy to pretty in a second. I can easily spend as much time looking for jewelry as I do for the dress.
