Your definition of CHIC

What is Chic to you?

Stylist to Admire

June Ambrose

Rachel Zoe

Tameka Raymond

All three of these women are Stylist to reputable celebrities such as Usher, Nicole Richie, Naomi Campbell, Diddy, Kate Hudson and Demi Moore. I love the looks that all three of these women conjure up for their clients.  Often the Stylist play the background but are very instrumental in providing a look that helps artist better market themselves.
