VH1′s “Single Ladies” Stylist Anthony Williams Proves That Fashion is All About the Fit!

 

VH1 "Single Ladies" Fashion Stylist

Want some fashion tips from Season 7 of Project Runway’s former contestant and Vh1′s hit scripted series, “Single Ladies” fashion stylist? Check out the scoop that the Fashion Bomb got from Mr. Anthony L. Williams himself! See what this fashionista had to say:

Yes it’s true, that most successful people started from the bottom and worked their way up. Per Anthony:

“I got my start.[...][At Neiman Marcus]I started at the bottom in accessories, then I moved to handbags, and then to the dress collections.” A well meaning friend felt Anthony had a gift, so submitted his information to the producers of Project Runway. He explains, “She gave me the application. I filled it out, sent it in, and went through the process.”

Most  shapes can look fine, and even the most off outfits can look fierce. You just have to know how to rock it. Per Anthony:

High waisted works a lot better than low rise. Especially if you want to have the illusion of a small waist.”

“The fit makes the fashion. We make sure Val is fitted with the proper undergarments–Tumi underwear and the proper bras–so that there are no visible lines. The worst thing is to have a beautiful garment destroyed by a bra strap or visible panty line! Next, I fit her in lots of pencil skirts because they work for her. It’s just important to know what works for your skin tone. Bright, beautiful colors are really in.”

We all love a red bottom  but other styles work just as well. Per Anthony:
You don’t need a pair of Christian Louboutins to look fierce! Stay in your lane and merge when necessary. If you can’t afford Christian Louboutins: don’t buy them. There’s nothing worse than having Christian Louboutins and a cheap outfit. Don’t buy a knockoff. Just walk away. There have been legends in fashion who looked spectacular long before Louboutins were created.”
 

You don’t actually need to style a celebrity to be considered a stylist. Per Anthony:

“Don’t always run to celebrities. It’s the cheapest form of prostitution I’ve ever seen! The reality of it is, celebrities do not pay. Don’t run after titles; search instead for people who celebrate your craft and who you are. If they respect you, they will pay you.”

“Being a lady and a gentleman never goes out of style. Be polite. If you want to go anywhere in life, get you some manners and you can be anything you want to be.”
