Friends Friday | Brad Goreski
The first time I virtually met Brad, I watched him on Bravo as a very funny assistant. He made me laugh until I cried, and I instantly loved him. As time went on he started his own business and one fine day, he started dressing a client that I worked with too.
The first time I physically met Brad, he was somehow even better than he was on TV. Maybe one of the funniest people I’ve met, Brad is silly and always willing to make fun of himself. Besides his hilarious personality, he has impeccable taste and a unique, brilliant point of view. Brad is first-class awesomeness, and I'm glad he answered these questions for you guys to get to know him a little better. Enjoy!!!
How long have you been in the industry?
Almost 10 years.
Have you always wanted to be a stylist, or was it something you had a knack for?
I think I always wanted to do something in fashion. I didn’t know what a stylist was. I wanted to be a model, but I am not tall or cute enough.
How would you describe your signature style?
Geek chic with some showgirl in it.
You work with celebs such as Lea Michelle and Rashida Jones. How do you find fresh inspiration for your varying clients?
Each of my clients inspires me. I want to always bring them the best options. It’s all about playing dress up.
What’s your favorite award show or red carpet event to style?
The Oscars. It’s high glamour.
Which look did you put together that you know you just killed it?!
All of them.
Who was someone you worked with that you were completely starstruck by?
Brad Pitt. It was the first job I worked on as an assistant.
Tell us a styling nightmare.
Broken zippers. I have anxiety over them.
What are 3 closet essentials everyone should splurge on?
Shoes, bags, and coats. I love a good coat.
What’s something you never travel without?
Bose noise canceling headphones. I loathe hearing airplane chatter.
Tips for dressing for the airport?
Comfortable doesn’t mean you need to wear your fave pair of PJs. You can still be comfortable in good jeans, cute sneaks, a cashmere sweater and a scarf. Don’t get me started on the people that bring their own pillow from home.
What about tips for revamping your wardrobe?
Clean out your closet first. Take a look at what’s left and see what is missing. Also, be aware of the things you are wearing over and over again. They can be good clues to what you should be buying each season.
What item do you need in your closet that you would trade an organ for?
What’s your current song anthem when you get ready in the mornings?
Love Myself by Hailee Seinfeld.
If you were on Real Housewives of New York, what would your tagline be?
Money can’t buy you taste, but it can buy you a lot of other things!
You also got engaged last year! How's married life?
I like being engaged. It feels so grown up. It’s been a year and we still have no wedding plans.
Who are you most excited to see on the runways this season?
What are some basic fashion tips you have for my readers?
Wear what you want to wear. March to the beat of your own drum. Stand out. Everything else is boring.
What advice would you give someone who wants to become a stylist?
Start at the bottom and learn the industry that way. You will feel a sense of accomplishment when you go out on your own.
What's your favorite color?
Navy blue. I love navy blue.
Boxers or Briefs?
Boxer briefs BEEYATCH.
