Madison Guest grew up in the small town of Ada, Oklahoma, but knew she’d have to break through those city limits to pursue her passion for fashion. After relocating to Los Angeles in 2006, she enrolled in the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM), graduating with a degree in merchandise marketing. It wasn’t long before she earned an internship with WhoWHatWear.com, and discovered she really had a knack for styling. “ became an assistant to other stylists outside of WhoWhatWear, and then eventually just kind of went out on my own.” Now Guest has styled everyone from Raven –Symone and Lala Vasquez, to teen superstar Victoria Justice.
When asked about her personal style faves and icons, she didn’t hesitate to list some very style savvy women. Some are relative newcomers, while others are veterans in the fashion game. “I love Bianca Jagger. I mean she just was so fab!” Other whose style she’s loving and finding inspiration from include Emma Stone, Kate Bosworth, and Rosie Huntington-Whitely. Not to mention Vogue Paris Editor-in-Chief, Emmanuelle Alt. “She probably is someone I try to emulate the most,” says Guest. She wears “very classic lines and simple stuff, but is always a little bit on trend.”
