For the past couple of years, we have seen Beyoncé take her music and fashion in various directions. If you have been loving Bey’s new sense of style, you can thank the talented Marni Senofonte for the fabulosity.
I am sure many are wondering, ” How do you land the job as Bey’s stylist?” Well, Marni wants you to know that it takes hard work, sacrifices, and dedication to work in the fashion industry.
Marni Senofonte sat down with WWD to talk about how she got her start in styling and how she became Beyoncé’s stylist.
Marni Senofonte began in the fashion industry as Norma Kamali’s assistant. According to Senofonte Norma Kamali was “hard” on her, but the tough love got her to the next level. While working in the P.R. Department, Marni begged Norma to create a look for Salt-N-Pepa. All it takes is one person to say “yes” to get you where you want to be. That was the beginning of a promising future for Marni.
According to WWD, Beyoncé’s longtime stylist Ty Hunter, who is credited as the head stylist on her self-titled 2013 album, began to pursue solo opportunities around the same time that Beyoncé wanted a change of direction.
“He was ready to change, she was ready to change. Everybody was ready to.”
In 2014, Marni began working with Bey even more. She worked on the video for “7/11” and “Feeling Myself,” and in 2016, the visual album “Lemonade.” She is also the mastermind behind Beyoncé’s entire “Lemonade” look, from the wide-brim “Formation” hat to Bey’s 2016 Super Bowl performance. The stylist also styled Bey’s Grammy looks, as well as her “pregnancy reveal” look that took social media by storm.
I am loving the direction Bey is going with her looks. She has an amazing team that isn’t afraid to take risks. Isn’t that what fashion is all about? Uniqueness, risks, and lots of chic-ness.
