Celebrity Stylists Dished On How Expensive It Is To Get Ready For The Oscars

Back in 2016, stylist Micaela Erlanger, who dressed Lupita Nyong’o for the night, told New York Post that it takes weeks of preparation to get ready. “There’s a lot of prep involved — we’re talking weeks. From talking to designers if you’re doing something custom to getting the samples in and, of course, fittings — it’s crazy.”

Erlanger told E! that her day rate is around $1,500. Multiply that by how many days a stylist is needed to find the perfect outfit for the night, and whew! What a price tag.

Oh, and when you’re rocking couture (like Dior, Chanel, YSL, etc.) THOSE brands usually want their own tailors to come in from Europe. Take into account round-trip flights, lodging near the event, and whatever else may come up. You can easily spend over $3,000 for that one perfect night.
