Jennifer Lopez’s Stylists: She’s a Fashion Expert!
When Jennifer Lopez‘s American Idol contract runs out, the star could have another lucrative career — as a celebrity stylist! Wardrobe designers Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn say the fashion plate knows her Prabal from her Prada. “She’s been in this industry a long time,” Zangardi tells WWD when asked about the duo’s “most informed” client. “It comes with experience.” And Lopez’s discerning support serves as a boon to the industry. “On American Idol recently [she] wore an asymmetric fuchsia Valentino top that we were told sold out the next days,” he says. However, Lopez may want to weigh her options before getting in the styling biz. Though the duo helps A-listers including Rihanna and Kerry Washington find the perfect red-carpet dresses, the job has its tedious aspects. “We bagged up every outfit with shoes and accessories, so everything is paint-by-numbers,” Zangardi says of client Rachel McAdams‘s Cannes Film Festival Marchesa moment. “The final look is extremely glamorous but getting to that point often not so!” –Justine Harman
