Margot Robbie, Selena Gomez, Michelle Williams, and Dakota Johnson all have one thing in common, besides successful careers in Hollywood: they rely upon the sartorial advice of stylist Kate Young. But Young’s creative prowess extends beyond the art of dressing; she is also a frequent adviser to designers all over the world, and often lends her talents to advertising campaigns, magazine editorials, and runway shows. This month, she debuts her first line of jewelry, created in collaboration with Monica Vinader. Herewith, she shares her key components to the good life. —Ashley Baker
