When Hollywood celebrity stylist  Kyle Kagamida left Hawaii to complete his education at FIDM and pursue a styling career in L.A., he told me his dream job was to work for Rachel Zoe. He fulfilled that goal recently, but found that Rachel Zoe had moved on from stylisng to running her fashion business, so he in turn moved on to work for uber-stylist Petra Flannery.

I was just reading a story about Petra Flannery styling Amy Adams for the Golden Globes in the Sunday New York Times, so I was thrilled to hear that Kyle is working for her now. The opportunities just seem endles for Kyle and no one deserves it more than he does. He is really deidcated and hard working…and still modest and, truly, adorable.

Here’s what Kyle wrote to me yesterday:

“I actually don’t work for Rachel Zoe anymore. I worked for her for about 3 months before I moved on to another stylist named Petra Flannery. As much as I love and respect Rachel she wasn’t styling anymore and the whole reason I wanted to work for her was to work with her and it just wasn’t the case. As for Petra, she is one of the best stylists in our business. We work with Emma Stone, Zoe Saldana, Claire Danes, Mila Kunis, Amy Adams and about 10 other people. I was actually just in Hawaii in October to do a Revlon commercial with Emma. I also work with Tara Swennen, whose clients include Kristen Stewart (who I’m sure you’ve heard is the new face of Chanel), Julie Bowen, Kaley Cuoco and Katy Perry. While working for them I also style my own clients who include Lane Garrison (Bonnie and Clyde and costarring in Camp X-Ray with Kristen Stewart), Edy Ganem (Devious Maids) and Keegan Allen (Pretty Little Liars). Needless to say I very rarely get a day off, but it’s exactly the way that I like it.”

I must say it makes the Oscars even more fun to watch when I know that Kyle is behind the scenes dressing some of the nominees. Let’s hear it for Kyle!
