Celebrity stylist Maeve Reilly is no stranger to the Met Gala — aka the opening night of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute's annual fashion exhibit, aka fashion's Super Bowl. After two years of dressing acclaimed R&B songstress Janelle Monáe for the big night — 2014 was all about her red Tadashi cape and 2015 saw her in a stunning custom H&M look — Reilly switched it up for 2016 and dressed rising It girl, Hailey Baldwin.
Although genetically-blessed Baldwin could make anything look good (even a spoon), Reilly has really taken the model's style to the next level, making her the best-dressed at Gigi Hadid's star-studded birthday bash last week, even in a sea of supermodels. (That nude Tamara Mellon dress and bodysuit combo was sexy, genius, and so damn cool).
Reilly — who's pretty babely herself — turned it out for Baldwin's Met Gala look in a futuristic Tommy Hilfiger gown, which honored the exhibit's "fashion meets technology" theme without going too literal. Here, the LA-based talent gives us an exclusive peek at what it takes to dress a star for the invite-only event, along with sharing some pro tips for future stylists. (Hint: always have a tailor on standby.)
