Being a stylist is theoretically one of the most glamorous gigs in the fashion industry. But stylists are also some of the hardest working professionals in the industry. They are often the first on set for a photo shoot and one of the last to leave. Risa Kostis of Ristyle Consulting is one such stylist. She is not only a leading stylist in her region – she’s based in Scottsdale, Arizona – but is a fashion plate in her personal style with a penchant for mixing high, low, and vintage pieces. Kostis has worked in fashion cities around the globe from New York to Florence, Italy with a range of clients from style icon Giuliana Rancic to magazines such as Maxim. She is a stylist on the rise and recently she shared her fashion and beauty faves with us!
