Zooey Deschanel's Stylists Karla Welch & Kemal Harris On How To French-Up Your Look

27 December 2012 by

Canadian styling duo Karla Welch and Kemal Harris split their time across NYC and L.A. Understandable, given their A-list clientele. They're a bi-coastal dream team and have created some of the cutest looks of the past few years - not surpisingly their ladies are Zooey Deschanel, Olivia Wilde and Hailee Steinfeld. So how can you manage to get their kooky cool without looking silly? Read up on their top fashion tips and shop the look below, and be sure to scroll through the gallery above for their latest greatest A-list looks!

Karla and Kemal's style: ‘Effortless and cool,’ says Karla. We say: feminine and sweet by way of chiffon and tulle vintage-look frocks, and perfectly bouffanted beehives. But, quite ingeniously, minus the saccharine.

This look sums it up: We don’t know anyone who didn’t adore Hailee Stanfield in her Prada liquorice stripes at the SAG Awards. Fact.

Labels they love: Balenciaga, Carven, ALC, Jil Sander, Stella McCartney and Celine.

The item you need now: Carven’s bow slingbacks. ‘A pair of perfect flats will chic up anything,’ The girls tell us ‘Simply add a trench to jeans, roll the cuff, put on the flats and voila - you are instantly French!’

Tips to try: Kemal and Karla are all about getting clothes altered to fit you perfectly, so find yourself a good tailor. ‘Some girls can slip on anything, but others can't,’ Karla explains. ‘When people look amazing on the red carpet it's because the clothes fit well.’ Message received.
