Just Ask Chriselle

posted by on 2010.12.28, under Uncategorized

So i’ve been running into many repetitive questions from some fellow fashionistas! So I decided to add a section onto my blog where you can ask me any questions! Whether its not knowing what to wear on that special first date, personal questions, how to achieve a certain look, etc…you can ask me ANYTHING! This section will be called “Ask Chriselle”

Heres one of the most popular questions that was asked several times:

Q: What do you do exactly? What does your day consist of?  What characteristics & attributes do you have to have to become a stylist?

A: I am a full time fashion wardrobe stylist and I also run a fashion production company. As a fashion wardrobe stylist my days are different everyday! Sometimes I am working on set for a music video, on loaction shooting for a magazine, or a campaign. Other days I am with my celebrity clients doing fittings with them, planning out their looks for the red carpet or simply just their everyday wardrobe. And some days I am in my office in downtown LA with my assistants planning and prepping for our next big shoot or event.

Obviously as a stylist you must have a great eye for style and also to be able to forecast upcoming trends. I am constantly on Style.com , WWD.com , and Vogue.com studying all day… everyday. You must be able to think outside of the box and be creative, take risks, and chances! You want your client and style to stand out! ALSO another important quality as a stylist…..you must be STRONG and physically in shape because you will be carrying pounds and pounds of clothing, jewelry, and shoes. Dont let all the designer goods fool you…this job can be tough! Another important thing….. Just because you love fashion does not mean you are a good stylist. As a stylist you dont want to think about YOU..but you want to think about your client! This means you cant dress your client in all the fancy things that you like for yourself….that is a big NO NO!

If you want to get into styling the biggest advice I can give you is  INTERN and ASSIST as much as possible! Here are some behind the scene images of how a typical day would look like for me!


You can either comment on this blog, facebook, or tweet us to answer your question! Just Ask Chriselle!

Dear Chriselle,
I always wanted to write you about how much you have inspired me. i recently graduated from CSUN with accounting degree. But i dont see myself doing accounting all day. that’s why i want to go back to fashion school FIDM as i always wanted. But at mean time i am seeking a internship or job opportunities to learn much more about what i really want in life and figure out what i really good at.

Thank you so much for your time.
have a wonderful day!

While the mechanism of this interaction is unknown, due to the narrow therapeutic index of pimozide and due to the interaction noted at a low dose of pimozide, concomitant administration of Sertraline and pimozide should be contraindicated (see CONTRAINDICATIONS). ,

Gigi Blandin ( March 12, 2011 at 12:46 PM )

Hi Chriselle! Once you mentioned the phrase ‘art of layering’. Could you explicate this (or is there already a post about it)? I’d like to layer, but it can turn out into a chunky look, instead of chic! :)

Anastasia ( February 22, 2011 at 8:18 AM )

Hi Chriselle! I wonder if you can give your advices about an office look in different seasons. I just don’t wanna stick only with too formal vest and simply pants (I usually use black and white pants).HELP! :)

CATHY NGUYEN ( February 18, 2011 at 11:55 AM )

Hi Chriselle, I’m loving your blog!! I was watching your personal style and you inspired me to ask you two questions: 1. How can I look age appropiate, I’m 28 and believe me I’m usually confused by a teenager. I’m very petite, none curves and small. And the 2nd: Can you give us some tips on haircuts?? I don’t have strong/ defined cheekbones but would like to have some short modern look. Thanks a lot for yout help!! Greetings from South Amercia!! :)

    Chriselle ( January 4, 2011 at 12:14 AM )

Hi Chriselle, I really like your style :) In your Glamorous New Years Fashion Tutorial on Michelle Phan’s channel you wore a lot of cute clothes/shoes/accessories but failed to tell us where you got them! Im interested in knowing and I’m sure other viewers are too! (I especially like the red dress with the leopard coat) It would be sooo helpful (and appreciated) if you included links or something. Thanks xx

Tiffy ( December 29, 2010 at 10:57 PM )

    Hi Tiffy, both the dress and coat is from Zara :) Happy New Years and thank u for the support!!

    Chriselle ( January 4, 2011 at 12:18 AM )

Hello Chriselle,
I recently came across your site via Muchelle Phan’s channel, and I have to say it is one of my favorite blogs! I am studying Fashion Marketing and Retail Management currently and I was curious if your company does any type of internship opportunities? Or what qualifications would be necessary for such a position!

Thanks for your time,
Brittany H.

Brittany H. ( December 29, 2010 at 9:24 PM )

    Hi Brittany! I actually studied fashion marketing too!! I am currently not taking on any interns but you will know when I am looking..I wil be posting it all over my FB and twitter :)

    Chriselle ( January 4, 2011 at 12:18 AM )

Hi Chriselle!
I just discovered your blog via your video on Michele Phan’s YT channel. I absolutely adore your sense of fashion, and how you put high fashion together to make it wearable for ‘real life’. :)

Love your blog! Keep up the great work!
Cheers!

    Chriselle ( January 4, 2011 at 12:21 AM )

Hi Chriselle,
I really love this idea. I need your advice. Actually I want to wear bandeau style dress to show my shoulder and I need to remove my bra straps. It’s really inconvenient for me because I could not shape up my breast and it’s quite big. Can you give me some tips to wear this dress confidently?

Thanks.
Jasmine

    Chriselle ( January 4, 2011 at 12:25 AM )

Hey Chrishelle, I wanted to know if you could give me some tips on how to keep a sense of style while having almost no time. I am a 19 year old mother of 2 and I am a full time student and worker. It gets difficult to keep away from t shirts and tennis shoes. That has never been my kind of fashion and I don’t want to have to start going to that. I was just wondering if there are some tips that could keep my style nice without having to spend much time. Thank you :)

Vanessa Borunda ( December 28, 2010 at 6:11 PM )

Sofia Imperial ( December 28, 2010 at 5:19 PM )

    Hi Sofia! Thank you! They are quite expensive but I am making a DIY tutorial soon about how to re create these shoes for less than $20! :)

    Chriselle ( January 4, 2011 at 12:28 AM )

    Chriselle ( January 4, 2011 at 12:28 AM )

if you could live in any fantasy universe (meaning everything from Hogwards to gossip girl) where would you want to live and why?

J. ( December 28, 2010 at 4:44 PM )

    I would want to live during the time of Audrey Hepburn’s breakfast at Tiffanys! When women were classy, drenched in pearls, and the first time ever when women actually were allowed to wear menswear (tailored suite, coats, blazers, etc). Power to the women!

    Chriselle ( January 4, 2011 at 12:31 AM )

You are so inspirational Chriselle!! I just discovered your blog and i enjoy reading it so much. Your style is impeccable! Keep blogging please, you’re awesome!

Kimmy Nguyen ( December 28, 2010 at 4:10 PM )

    Chriselle ( January 4, 2011 at 12:31 AM )

Hey Chriselle, I really want to start a Fashion/Beauty blog or website, but I don’t know if I should start a website or a blog. What do you think

Sam ( December 28, 2010 at 3:38 PM )

    u should definately start a blog first then transition into a website!

    Chriselle ( January 4, 2011 at 12:32 AM )

What brands do you scope out for high fashion and where do you go for cheap thrills? What advice would you offer to girls who want to look fashionable but are on a budget?

Chengsu C ( December 28, 2010 at 3:36 PM )

    This is a GREAT question! Im going to be blogging about this soon! So keep posted!!

    Chriselle ( January 4, 2011 at 12:32 AM )

Hi Chriselle :) Found you through michelle phan’s black swan ballerina couture video – you do lovely work!

I’m a huge fan of the movie and I was wondering if you could help me find the pants that Nina/Natalie was wearing while stretching in front of the mirror (eg. pause as 0:28 in this trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5jaI1XOB-bs ) I know they’re leggings but they seem to be shearling or something? I’d really appreciate if you can point me in teh right direction. Thanks!

mia ( December 28, 2010 at 2:38 PM )

    Hi Mia!! Loved the movie too! Not sure what exact tights those are but my favorite line for tights is Wolfard…..they have THE best tights with the most amazing selections!! goodluck!
