    It's hard to pin down why exactly we feel so at home with stylist Kate Young's work, from how she adds in her two cents on the runways at Jason Wu and Derek Lam to the editorials she's styled for Lula and Vogue to how she's responsible for some of our favorite red-carpet moments via Diane Kruger, Michelle Williams, and Natalie Portman. It's not hard because there's a lack of strong vision — it's just the opposite, actually. It's difficult because Young's style POV is wonderfully complex and nuanced: subtly sexy, strong but still tender, timeless without being boring, with a good bit of vintage thrown in for good measure. It's the kind of style that we love seeing on ourselves and other women, and we owe a lot of our sartorial sensibilities to Kate's career.

    The veteran stylist has had her fingers in nearly every aspect of fashion, from runways and red carpets to magazines and advertisements…and with her upcoming collaboration at Target, you'll be able to find a bit of Kate in your 'hood as well. We visited the tastemaker in her Clinton Hill home to talk shop: her favorite piece from her upcoming collection, the powder sunscreen (say what?) she's completely obsessed with, and what it's like raising two angels in Brooklyn.
