Variety & WWD kicked off the First Annual StyleMakers today at Smashbox Studios in Culver City, Calif. Major celebs hit the red carpet to support this year’s honorees including Kerry Washington, Katie Holmes and Viola Davis.
The StyleMakers celebration spotlights innovators who are responsible for the behind-the-scenes talent in fashion, beauty and style work. Their work has been seen on hits shows like “Scandal,” “The Voice” and “How To Get Away With Murder,” as well as red carpets at the Grammys, the Emmys and the Academy Awards.
Honorees include fashion designer Zac Posen, costume designer Lyn Paolo, stylist Elizabeth Stewart, hair stylist Jen Atkin, make-up artist Lisa Eldridge and photographer Matthew Rolston.
Washington made a statement in stripes wearing Nicholas Kirkwood heels. She was in attendance to support of Paolo — who is responsible for creating the look of “Scandal’s” Olivia Pope. Before introducing the costume designer on stage, Washington said, “It all begins with the shoe.”
Holmes was on hand in Christian Louboutin heels to introduce Posen, while Davis made an appearance to introduce her stylist, Stewart.
