Walking the red carpet during awards season is the perfect opportunity for a celebrity to celebrate the marriage of art and fashion, be it with a designer dress courtesy of Chanel, or at the hands of world-renowned make-up artist Pat McGrath.

Here’s out round up of the celebrity fashion stylists you need to know:
