Simply Stylist recently sat down with celebrity stylist Deborah Afshani (she's worked with Emma Watson, Reese Witherspoon and Brad Pitt) to talk fashion and sartorial fire drills. She revealed an interesting predicament from a recent Vanity Fair shoot: "The actress didn’t wear fur so we had fake fur options on hand. Turns out she wouldn’t do fake fur either and she insisted on wearing something over her shoulders. I ended up making her a silk organza wrap out of fabric scraps I had in my kit!" [SS]
