Professional Looks: The Portfolio of Stylist Karen Kleber
Talia Balsam for Angeleno Magazine
Stylist Karen Kleber works with clients in fashion, music, advertising, and other industries all over the world. In her practice, Karen creates polished, professional looks, shifting easily between red-carpet glamour and functional, everyday clothing.
I like the way that Karen tailors her styles to both the context -- whether that be an advertising video, a gala, or a magazine shoot -- and to the individual or individuals in question. While browsing through Karen’s style portfolio, it’s nice to be able to see how the artist balances her own personal style preferences with the preferences of her clients, and the demands of a certain event or shoot.

In our previous feature of Karen’s sleek and modern styles, we looked at the way the artist uses colour strategically. Even in glamorous, red-carpet styles, Karen tends toward minimal makeup and relies on one or two colour-saturated items, adhering to an aesthetic that’s simple but never boring.
