Olivia Munn hires Lupita Nyong’o’s stylist

Olivia Munn

Olivia Munn was so amazed by Lupita Nyong’o’s standout style during awards season that she hired her stylist Micaela Erlanger.

The ‘Magic Mike’ actress was so impressed with the Oscar-winning newcomer’s incredible presence on the red carpet during awards season that she looked up her stylist Micaela Erlanger – who also works with ‘Downton Abbey’ star Michelle Dockery – and begged her to dress her too.

She told People magazine: “When I saw Lupita on the red carpet in that red dress at the Golden Globes, I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, who is that?’ I looked her up online and I saw all of her outfits … and I was looking at Michelle Dockery, [and] I was like, ‘I have to find out who Michaela is.’ I love that Michelle and Lupita have a distinct style. [Micaela] brought it out in them, they don’t all look the same.”

The in-demand fashion expert recently made it to third place on The Hollywood Reporter’s top 25 most powerful stylists list and Olivia thinks her status is completely deserved.

She explained: “It’s really hard to find people who see you the same way that you see yourself or how you want to be presented. I’m not the stick thin girl, I’ve got boobs and a butt. I get pushed into ‘sexy’, and I didn’t want to do that.”

Olivia, who used to dress herself for red carpets, is hoping the collaboration will help her experiment in future.

She said: “I’m still evolving and I would love to get to a place where I finally feel comfortable, especially on the red carpet.”
