With Halloween a few days away, it makes sense that we’ve trained our candy-hungry lens on L.A.’s most adorable pastry chef and in-demand food stylist, Megan Mitchell. This sweet lass, who started her career whipping up soufflés and crème brûlées at Santa Monica’s top bistro, JiRaffe, is now a food stylist for the eating industry’s heaviest hitters (Giada De Laurentiis and the hot new TV show Food For Thought are just two clients who depends on Megan’s good taste and fine foodie eye). And, don't worry, her ability to style delish dishes translates to her wardrobe, too. Look for Marc Jacobs, J.Crew, and plenty of vintage bling in her weekly rotation. From a day of running between sets to a morning at home admiring her collection of jewels, Megan proves that when she’s out of her chef whites, it's all about comfort, ease, and tons of L.A. flair. Dig in—Halloween calories don't count!
