I remember years ago, (circa 2012) when June Ambrose emerged from behind the scenes and became a star in her own right with her reality show 'Styled by June'. Known for being a stylist to the stars, June built a strong portfolio of clients such as Jay Z, Diddy and Mischa Barton. But, it wasn't just her flashy client list that had people drawn to her, she is also branded as one of the most interesting people in Hollywood … by myself. From her unique and quirky sense of style to her take- no-shit approach to work, June has a fun-loving personality. This includes the passion and love she has for her craft, which she so vividly expresses in design and by uplifting others through style.
In a 2012 interview with Media Bistro, June talked about putting Jay-Z in his first suit and strategically choosing Armani. She was dressing "an extension of himself and who he ultimately wanted to become" — a business man and mogul. Style and fashion is about “role playing and dressing your alter ego”, says June. And she’s not afraid to push her creativity to encourage people to step out of their comfort zones, because within that discomfort, is where growth happens.
