Meet Tinseltown's Most Powerful Trendsetters, The Star Stylists

Remember the days when stylists were known only by those within the industry? A teensy credit next to their sartorial handiwork was the most you'd hear about them. But, those days of the anonymous wardrobe gurus are gone: Hit or miss, we can't watch a red carpet now without wondering who's responsible for the look.
Chalk it up to Rachel Zoe's Bravo fame, or the marketable collections from Jeanne Yang, Cher Coulter, and Kate Young, but there's no shortage of high-wattage stylists shining the spotlight on themselves. It's come to the point where these ladies don't just dress the A-listers: They cut two rungs above the rest, designing alongside and becoming BFFs with their clients. So, The Hollywood Reporter's third annual Stylists Issue focuses on the facts, narrowing down Tinseltown's most influential closet curators. The numero uno title for 2013 went to Leslie Fremar, who graces one of the four current covers and has dressed the likes of Julianne Moore, Charlize Theron, and Reese Witherspoon. Rounding out the top five are Petra Flannery (style whiz to Zoe Saldana, Emma Stone, and Mila Kunis), Ms. Zoe, Ms. Young, and Elizabeth Stewart.
