We have to apologize for sounding a little gushy in this interview. The problem is that celebrity stylist Elizabeth Saltzman, the very best in her field, is an industry hero of ours. It didn’t help that on the day we interviewed her, Gwyneth Paltrow was due to knock on her door an hour later. She is the brains behind the red carpet looks we love, but her job is about so much more than picking a dress. That’s why we enlisted her for an ICONversations about CONFIDENCE. Turns out, while the outside counts, the inside matters so much more. When she works with women, she gets to the bottoms of their needs, wants and self-worth. And that’s because until you like who you see in the mirror, a dress won’t do a thing.
Elizabeth Saltzman on Styling Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Sandra Oh and Gwyneth Paltrow
A Different Tweed: Fashion Conversations with Bronwyn Cosgrave
The Met Gala, Killing Eve, Phoebe Waller-Bridge – on the latest episode of A Different Tweed, meet Elizabeth Saltzman, the fashion stylist who is involved in all of these cultural phenomena. Tune in to hear Elizabeth explain her trajectory from working on Vogue and Vanity Fair to rank among the Hollywood Reporter’s top 25 “Power Stylists” because of her work with Waller-Bridge as well as Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer plus Gwyneth Paltrow and Saoirse Ronan, who she is dressing for the 2019 Met Gala. Elizabeth is the first stylist to feature on A Different Tweed and her episode is a special audio diary. Recorded at Claridge’s hotel in London, she recalls leaving behind her Upper East Side family home in the 1980s to immerse herself in downtown New York’s avant-garde fashion scene and its vibrant club culture. “Night life was my university,” she reflects. Hear how she changed it up at the turn of the new millennium, leaving New York, when she was nine months pregnant, to live in London where deploying her clout as Vanity Fair’s fashion director, she helped nurture a new generation of designers who established the British metropolis as a bonafide fashion capital. She also divulges how preparing Vanity Fair’s annual Oscar party prepped her for her current role as a movie star stylist. “I was styling people before I knew I was a ‘stylist’,” she reflects. Elizabeth also talks about how a mix of Killing Eve creepiness, sustainability and the #MeToo movement all inspire her craft.
