Every day Miami gets a little more chic. Some say it’s the Basel effect, but we think it has more to do with these five Miami stylists that do everything from styling videos and photo shoots for the worlds best publications to getting personal clients just the right dress for the gala.
1 Danny Santiago
If you think you haven't heard of Danny Santiago, think again; his work is everywhere from Vogue and Sex and the City, to Burn Notice and Playboy. Danny's celebrity clientele includes over 80 guys and gals with famous faces. Suit and tie, avant-garde or sexy, Danny is the man in Miami and beyond.
2 Elysze Held
Elysze Held, otherwise known as Miami's one-person closet swat team, has an mystifying ability to create an entirely new wardrobe comprised mainly of what you already own. Her specialties include closet therapy, personal styling, wardrobe planning, and wardrobe shopping in addition to dressing Channel 7's Louis Aguirre. Whether you are going on a summer trip and can't find the time to pack the perfect outfits, are in desperate need of a closet revamp, or need to look dashing and daring at an event, Elysze is the one to call.
3 Rachael Russell
Rachael Russell, represented by Ford Models as Talent Artist, is the ultimate young, hip, multi-faceted stylist. As the Founder and President of non-profit Style Saves, Rachael works to build confidence and create a fresh start with clothes for underprivileged students in Miami. Rachael's styling outside of her non-profit work is fun, fashion-forward and editorial ready.
4 Lisa Cera
Lisa Cera's impeccable taste and understanding of textures, colors and patterns lands the Wilhelmina stylist on our list of favorite miami-based stylists. Her travels and Italian background are the main influencers of the fresh, eclectic style that established her in the industry— it doesn't hurt that she was Gloria Estfan's stylist for 6 years either! Lisa also teaches a course in fashion styling for anyone looking to learn a thing or two about the trade.
5 Cristina Cellini
Founder of Nobodysugly, Cristina Cellini, is fluent in English, Italian and French- the perfect combination for any European-Miamian. Her celebrity client list consists of Kim Kardashian, Jon Travolta and Serena Williams. Personal shopping and fashion styling are Cristina's leading services; others include costume design, styling children and corporate gifting for up to 500.
