Beanie Feldstein has become one of those celebrities you see on the red carpet, not only because she looks gorgeous in interviews, but also because she wears fun, interesting clothes: a poppy sleeve, printed organza Simone Rocha dress with a beaded hair dress, a custom white Miu Miu shirt dress with matching Mary Jane heels, and a royal Oscar de la Renta dress with a braided Baublebar headband. And she seems to have a damn blast with it.
Feldstein worked with a stylist Erin Walsh since the beginning of 2019, when she was brought in to help her with her wardrobe for South by Southwest (where her movie "Booksmart" would be premier). & # 39; We fell into each other – she was actually going to work with someone else, and they canceled, & # 39; tells Walsh over the phone from LA to Fashionista. "One day I made my first match with her. It was literally one of the easiest, most delicious accessories I've ever had. & # 39;
"You always want to make sure you always understand the people's insecurities, their comfort zones, the designers and the periods and colors they want to attract," she continues. & # 39; But well, with Beanie, it really felt so organic; she just came completely open to the table and wants to have fun. She just likes it and I think that's why it works so well. & # 39;
The two have since worked together through the & # 39; Booksmart & # 39; press tour and the subsequent awards season, plus other appearances – such as when Feldstein flew to Paris for Miu Miu's Resort 2020 show.
"She is just as friendly and easy going, sweet and open and totally confident. As far as dream clients are concerned, she is just such a wonderful co-worker, has the best ideas, is willing to try everything, trust me completely, love experiment and have fun, ”says Walsh.
Just before the gate, the look that Walsh and Feldstein put together was colorful, daring and playful: in South by Southwest, the actor wore a purple, metallic Batsheva dress and a custom balloon sleeve gown. "In general, we just try to have fun and always keep it very polished and uplifting and chic, but we also explore the whimsical, the very fashionable look, the interesting color range and accessories," the stylist explains. (Walsh says her four-year-old daughter is & # 39; a fan of Beanie's chosen ones: & # 39; She certainly wore all the accessories to our Globes pass. & # 39;)
& # 39; It should be nice, & # 39; adds Walsh. & # 39; The world is a mess. Such as: & # 39; Okay, let's have fun with our clothes. Bring people & # 39; some joy & # 39 ;. "

Walsh describes their process as & # 39; n & # 39; total collaboration & # 39; and not something she can really quantify or divide by numbers: "I have found over the years that with clients we really just stuck to, many times are our ideas. When we talked about Globes, she was literally: & # 39; That's exactly what I thought. & # 39; And with the earrings too – it's very seamless and fun. "
Feldstein's recent appearance of red carpet has received a lot of attention (and praise) on social media for all of the above reasons, and it's also refreshing to see that a non-exemplary actor red carpet embodied. Although size is something that is emerging – and that she is aware of the gaps that exist in the market – Walsh says that her focus on "& # 39; creates a moment & # 39; regardless of size ".
"Whether or not you have a size of zero or not, it's all about proportions to make sure things fit properly and also to make sure that the way things fit really emphasize best qualities and make you feel confident and comfortable, "she says. & # 39; It has a lot to do with customization – we & # 39; ve got some great friends we like to work with, and they are incredibly important and always inspire us to make suggestions about fit or customization. But this has never been so, & # 39; Let's shift the paradigm in terms of dressing for a certain size. & # 39; And I think that is due to the fact that she is just an extremely confident and joyful person. & # 39;
Walsh's approach to styling, fashion and life more broadly, she says, is "to keep searching for the joy, keep searching for the new, keep finding new ways to dream – whether it be & # 39. being a silhouette, & # 39; a new designer, & # 39; a new texture, more color and overall keep in mind that it is not in my interest to just bump it without a narrative. think you want something consistent and streamlined and developed and polished, and in exploring the funkiness and fun ideas, it's important for me to always feel uplifted. & # 39;
Feldstein's appearance for the Golden Globes in 2020 was a big moment for her as well as Walsh. "(Garcia from Oscar de la Renta) is a dear friend and he has made many beautiful creations with me over the years (but) it was the first time he did anything to her," the stylist explains. & # 39; He was the first and only choice for the Globes. The idea series definitely started from a bigger pool, but I really gave my hat to him in this particular case, because he really wanted to go on the Navy thinking it would be kind of & # 39; a royal, defining feature right now. And he was right on the nose. & # 39;
Walsh describes Feldstein's style as "very feminine-eclectic. It's a disrespectful, whimsical, and yet honed approach to a cool, young lady. I think Miu Miu was very emblematic of it – we like it to work with them. " And from what she learned from her client, the stylist says "it's so simple: it's like gratitude and joy."
She goes on: "She has a wonderful light to be in the area. If we all predicted more of the time, I think we would definitely have more light in the world. I am very aware of this platform, this voice, and working with people that I think inspires and resonates with people in a hopeful way, and that's the manifestation of it. She's just wonderful and I couldn't worship her anymore. is so much more of her to get into this world, so it's also very exciting. "
