Please welcome the newest addition to our PEOPLE StyleWatch blog lineup, Leslie Fremar. She’s Hollywood’s top stylist (literally — The Hollywood Reporter just said so!) with clients from Julianne Moore to Reese Witherspoon. And now she’s bringing her considerable talents to our site to share behind-the-scenes scoop, styling tips and much more. For her inaugural blog post, she gives us all the backstage dish on Moore’s stunning emerald Met Gala look — and what it’s like to have every piece of your outfit made entirely custom for you.

A question I get asked all the time is “How do you get your clients ready for a major event?” I think the reason that people are so interested in this is because it feels very out of reach for most. Many women in their everyday life don’t have the need to dress that way, unless they are going to their own wedding. To this day I still find the process of getting ready for a major red carpet event extremely fascinating. Even though I do this for a living, I truly believe it can be applied to every woman getting ready for a special occasion.

The Met Gala was last night and it’s pretty much a “Who’s Who” of Hollywood, music and fashion all in one room. Everyone is trying to do something memorable, interesting, and fashionable. It’s fascinating how it all comes together and how many people are really involved in creating one look; you have the designers, the artist, the stylist, the jeweler, the hair and make-up people, manicurist, tailor, assistants.

Just to walk you through what it takes to get ready for The Met Gala: Last night I dressed Julianne Moore in Balenciaga. We started the process when Julianne accepted Alexander Wang‘s invitation to attend as his date to the event. Once the pairing between actor and designer is made, you can go ahead and start creating the look for the evening.

After going through images from the Balenciaga Fall/Winter 2013 show, Julianne and I had relayed our favorite looks from the season. Balenciaga then presented us with sketches, transforming some of the looks from the show into evening gowns. We ended up choosing a version of a cocktail dress, which he showed in black. They suggested making it long and in green. We loved it, we approved the sketch and they started making the dress.

Five Ways to Fauxhawk, as Seen at the Met Gala

Normally, we’d call fauxhawks ‘pretty crazy,’ but given that we’ve seen this, this and this at Monday night’s Met Gala in New York City … they’re actually almost ‘pretty tame’ by comparison. However, when you’ve got Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani and Julianne Moore all sporting similar hairstyles at the same major punk-themed event, you most certainly have a trend. One that we’re not sure we’d try, but that we’re loving on these stars.

Lopez’s gravity-defying look was a major departure from her typical waves and curls, calling to mind, perhaps, a long-haired, brunette Pink. Emily Blunt took an elegant approach to her hair, opting for some voluminous twists at the front leading to a messy updo at her crown. Stefani brought us (fittingly) back to her punkier days a bit, opting for a serious side-part and bangs to go with her topknot.

On Tuesday night, Julianne Moore did what few women would be able to: She did justice to one of Elizabeth Taylor‘s most prized pieces of jewelry.

The dazzling emerald-and-diamond necklace, purchased for Taylor by future husband Richard Burton while they were on location for Cleopatra in Rome, was a staple in the legendary star’s wardrobe; she even wore it to accept her Oscar in 1967.

It was one of eight Bulgari pieces that the jewelry house purchased from her 2011 Christie’s auction and now have on display at their Rodeo Drive flagship.

And the Official Hairstyle of the SAG Awards Is …

Jan/27/2013 at 10:30 PM ET

When it comes to the red carpet, the updo is to hair what a black gown is to fashion. But after the classic evening style was a no-show at the Golden Globes, we wondered if it would make a strong comback at tonight’s Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Instead, it was all about glamorous waves with a deep side part, as seen on Amanda Seyfried, Jennifer Lawrence, Julianne Moore, Jessica Chastain, Naomi Watts, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler – just to name a few.

How Makeup and Contact Lenses Turned Julianne Moore Into Sarah Palin

Mar/08/2012 at 03:00 PM ET

Step aside Tina Fey: there’s a new Sarah Palin in town. Julianne Moore becomes Palin incarnate in Game Change, a made-for-TV movie which details the inner workings of John McCain’s 2008 presidential bid. And though the film — which debuts Saturday night on HBO — focuses on the campaign, it’s Moore’s Palin who steals the show thanks in part to her amazing physical transformation.

“The tanner, the eyes and the hair,” Melissa Farman, who portrays Bristol Palin in the film, told PEOPLE Wednesday at the New York premiere. “You forgot it was Julianne Moore.”

“It was the great jacket, [the clothes] were all perfect,” Sarah Paulson, who plays campaign advisor Nicolle Wallace, added of Moore’s pricey wardrobe. “But what she did with her body and her voice … it was her physicality, the way she stood. [She] was a dead ringer.”
