A Gossip Girl star wants to style your wardrobe...

Posted on March 12, 2013 by Linley Taber

We have long admired Kelly Rutherford’s effortlessly elegant style: whether starring on "Gossip Girl", or squiring her adorable children around the Upper East Side, she always looks beautifully pulled together. And now, we’re excited to share, she’s available to help you style your wardrobe.

Kelly tells us her foray into one-on-one wardrobe styling came about organically, after friends and acquaintances sought her fashion know-how. The actress, who used to help stylist Eric Daman pull together her outfits for "Gossip Girl", jumped at the chance to spend an afternoon helping others do the same.

“It’s about finding new ways of pulling your things together and creating new outfits,” she says.  “It’s weeding out things that you don’t wear anymore, and making a list of things that will round out your closet –both high and low. Maybe it’s just a few pairs of jeans from J.Crew and a great new Hermes cuff.”

Kelly likens her wardrobe styling services to “creative play within your closet” – and already has a list of clients singing her praises. (One them told us that when Kelly “transformed my closet, she transformed my style and my morning routine – which is now stress-free.”)
