What do Hollywood actors Rami Malek, Donald Glover and Tom Hiddleston have in common besides being exceptional actors? They constantly top Hollywood’s best-dressed list thanks to their stylist Ilaria Urbanati.
Urbanati first started as a buyer for her aunt’s store in Los Angeles before quickly moving on to wardrobe design for Showtime’s “The L Word”. After one of the actors on the show won “Best Dressed Man on Television” from the bi-weekly publication TV Guide, that’s when she decided menswear styling was something she wanted to pursue.
She quickly took on Chris Evans and Bradley Cooper as one of her first clients and now her roster reads as the who’s who in terms of leading Hollywood men, thanks to her keen eye for detail and love for sharp tailoring. She knows exactly how to push her client’s sartorial boundaries with colour and silhouettes without making them feel too uncomfortable on the carpet.
