Mary Alice Stephenson

Thursday, July 14, 2011

As a stylist to the stars, television personality and philanthropist, Mary Alice Stephenson barely has time to strap on her Alejandro Ingelmo shoes, yet manages to look amazing every time she leaves the house. It helps that Stephenson is always smiling. “Nothing looks good on a bitch,” she says. Stephenson uses her love of clothes to help others. “As the National Fashion Ambassador for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, I get to harness my love for fashion and beauty to make fashion dreams come true for kids who have battled life threatening illnesses,” she reports proudly. When asked what women she finds truly chic, Stephenson is very democratic. “I admire all the women on this list and anyone who wears sequins in the sun and their heart on their sleeves. This Birmingham, Michigan native can be found styling the likes of Beyonce, Sienna Miller, Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Lopez and Liv Tyler. Everyone’s gotta start somewhere, Stephenson got hers as an assistant fashion editor at Vogue.
