Mogul Jay-Z hopped straight on a plane back to NY from his much hyped SXSW performance to support his devoted friend and celebrity stylist, June Ambrose. Hov displayed his loyalty to Ambrose by attending the screening of her new VH1 series “Styled by June.”
Both June and Mr. Carter were dressed dapperly at the event housed at NYC’s Crosby Hotel. Jay sported a black tailored suit while June made a statement in a colorful silk ensemble. When asked about her fashion history with Jay-Z, June reflected on her first time working with the Brooklyn don.
“The first suit I bought Jay-Z was an Armani suit because the shoulders were soft” June told reporters. “It was a European cut, it was very relaxed. We slowly graduated him into that executive seat that he was eventually going to sit in. He was an executive on the streets. I was just bringing him into the boardroom.”
Jay-Z is just the tip of the long list of celebrity clients styled by June. Ambrose has been in the game for 20 years and is responsible for the looks of some of the biggest stars including Mariah Carey, Diddy, and Mary J. Blige. June described the show simply stating “You’re in my ‘Juniverse,’ yes, but in that ‘Juniverse,’ I take you through the process. I have this very strategic process that I take with each client every week”.
Watch June work her magic on actress Mischa Barton on the premiere episode on VH1.
