Beyond the blip of Rachel Zoe‘s mega-fame in the early 2000s—when her clients Nicole Richie, Mischa Barton and Lindsay Lohan shared the same instantly identifiable aesthetic (printed headscarf, maxi dress, giant handbag)—people can’t usually call out the stylist behind a group of actresses. And rightfully so, as the stylist’s hand should be subtle. Still, that doesn’t mean it’s not interesting to do a little research and check out who styles who. It can be a fun little game of connect-the-dots, like when you read that the same woman styles Claire Danes, Emma Stone and Zoe Saldana.
Those three girls have seemingly very different styles—Claire skews more classic, Emma a little more playful and Zoe a bit sharper and more high fashion-y. But when you look a little closer, they’ve picked up some similar hallmarks during the past few years, no doubt thanks to their shared stylist. Above, click through for a closer look at the woman behind their red carpet looks, Petra Flannery, and the common threads she’s skillfully, subtly weaving between these three ladies.
