Variety and Women’s Wear Daily are teaming up once again for the StyleMakers Awards.
Established last year, the second annual event will celebrate the fusion of fashion and entertainment, and recognize those working behind the scenes in fashion, beauty, and style who have left an impact on the entertainment industry. This year, the sister publications will honor style innovator Tracee Ellis Ross, style renegade Jenna Dewan Tatum, fashion designer Zuhair Murad, stylist Petra Flannery, hair stylist Danilo, make-up artist Rachel Goodwin, costume designer Albert Wolsky, and style innovator Diplo.
The awards ceremony will take place on Thursday at Quixote in West Hollywood, Calif.
“We are happy to collaborate with our sister publication, WWD, to honor the creative artists and influential talent at the forefront of the fusion of fashion and entertainment,” said Variety Co-Editor-in-Chief Claudia Eller.
Presenters at this year’s ceremony include Emma Stone, Jen Atkin, Nina Dobrev, and Lily Collins. The event also includes two sets of conversations with the honorees — one with Murad and WWD West Coast Bureau Chief Marcy Medina, and a second with Wolsky, “Rules Don’t Apply” costars Collins and Warren Beatty, and Eller.
“We’re delighted to be producing our second annual Stylemakers event, recognizing exceptional talents who are sitting right at the creative intersection of fashion and entertainment,” said WWD Editor-in-Chief Ed Nardoza.
StyleMakers is presented in association with Anastasia Beverly Hills, Mercedes-Benz, and Dyson Supersonic.
