We got to chat with the talented woman behind Lea Michele’s amazing red carpet looks, and she filled us in on what Lea loves to show off on the red carpet and offered up tips on how you can rock a red-carpet-worthy look. Ready to shake up your style?

Although you may not have a top Hollywood stylist at your disposal, it doesn’t mean you can’t look like you stepped right off the red carpet! Estee Stanley, major stylist to the stars, teamed up with Marshalls — and she shared some of her stylist secrets with us. It’s easy to rely on a go-to silhouette or your favorite outfit, but sometimes your comfort zone can start working against you — but snapping out of that style rut is easier than you think.

Lea Michele’s Major Red Carpet Style:

Lea Michele is always one we love to watch, because she always keeps us guessing when it comes to her fierce fashion choices — not only does she make rocking the red carpet look so easy, but she also has a lot of fun when it comes time to get glam…and she isn’t afraid to take risks!

“Lea knows what looks good on her – and it certainly helps that she absolutely loves fashion and trusts me to pick the best options for her to show off her confident style on the carpet, even if it takes her out of her comfort zone,” Estee said. “Her favorite silhouette is a short, sweet dress or skirt, but Lea and I have worked together for a long time now to develop her red carpet confidence, trying tons of different options.”

How-To Break Out Of A Style Rut: Celebrity Stylist Tips

So, how can you unleash your inner “red carpet confidence”? It’s actually not as hard as you might think! “The bottom line is that you have to feel confident in the style you are sharing with the world – and sometimes it takes putting yourself out of your comfort zone to really get there,” Estee said.

While you may have your go-to look, don’t be afraid to switch it up — even if that means starting small. Estee added: “My advice is to set small style goals for yourself – like rocking a wild accessory, or trying taller heels. Once you set a plan for that goal and achieve it, you’ll be more likely to try new things in the future, because you’ve already proven that you can!”

Once you’re all ready to go, remember that at the end of the day you define the look — not the other way around. “Play the role your outfit deserves. It’s all in how your wear your look. If you walk out that door rocking your outfit with confidence you’re sure to achieve any goals ahead.”
