Fashionable People: Adrien's Real-Life Style

Adrien and I have known each other for years, and her killer personal style is part of what prompted me to approach her and her husband Jon about doing a tour of their home. Given that she is a fashion stylist for editorials, music videos, look books, campaigns, commercials, and more, it's no surprise that Adrien's collection of clothing and accessories is drool-inducing.

Fortunately, much of it is for rent or sale through her boutique, Adrien's Closet. She does much of her business out of her "babe cave"—a detached garage converted into a styling studio (see the before & after of the space here), and also has a spare bedroom in the house dedicated to housing items that she rents out.

Adrien first came to Los Angeles over thirteen years ago to act and model, but she couldn't afford to pay a stylist for test shoots and thus ended up coordinating her own looks. The photographers she was working with took notice and asked her to style other shoots to them. This quickly grew into a full-fledged career as a freelance fashion stylist, and she has loved every minute of it.

When she isn't working on a photo shoot or prepping a client for a wedding or the red carpet, you'll find Adrien scouring the racks of local flea markets and vintage stores looking for the next addition to her stash, picking up an interior decorating gig on the side, hosting a dinner party, or traveling anywhere possible with her husband.
