Samantha McMillen (stylist & designer) in Dries van Noten jacket and Dries van Noten skirt
Contribution for Milk X magazine’s 6th anniversary event. Also published in its October 2012 Issue.
There is another fashion illustration of her that didn’t make it to print. It was a last minute change of clothes! But never mind, I am sharing it with you anyway (to be honest I like her in Dries van Noten better BUT prefer her hair in Haider Ackermann.)

Clients: Carey Mulligan, Evan Rachel Wood, Dakota and Elle Fanning, Diane Lane, Colin Firth, Johnny Depp, Josh Brolin, Ryan Reynolds
Exhibiting the same ease in dressing women as with some of Hollywoodʼs most dashing men, the styling veteran has the ability to create a striking moment while retaining her fashion edge.
Who can forget the sharp silhouette Firth cut in his slim Tom Ford tux at last yearʼs Oscars? Other clients who wear suits like nobodyʼs business: Reynolds and Depp, with his personalized touches of colorful vests, derby hats and ascots.
McMillen, who handled VIP relations for Richard Tyler and Giorgio Armani during the ʼ90s, dressed Mulligan in a killer rose-hued ombre fringe Lanvin dress for Decemberʼs National Board of Review Awards in New York. “One of my favorite recent looks was Evan Rachel Wood in Alessandra Rich,” she says, about the white shantung shirtdress gown that transformed The Ides of March actress into a contemporary Betty Draper at the Venice Film Festival in the fall.
