Elizabeth Saltzman is a contributing editor to Vanity Fair and a London-based stylist. Dressing celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Saoirse Ronan and Uma Thurman in Emilio Pucci, Stella McCartney, and Antonio Berardi ensures her clients regularly appear on best dressed lists.
Saltzman has considerable influence in the industry, enabling her to commission pieces from the world’s top designers, including an ivory caped Tom Ford gown Paltrow wore to the 2012 Academy Awards.
Her years as a fashion editor not only grants Saltzman the necessary contacts for her job, but her experience makes her one of the most accurate trend spotters and decisive stylists working. “I don’t play games, I usually only pick three dresses to choose from, so I don’t waste the designer’s time or mine.”
Saltzman began her career at Giorgio Armani in 1983, but soon moved to US Vogue in 1985. Saltzman was quickly promoted to senior fashion editor at the magazine, a position she held for eight years until she left to join Vanity Fair as fashion editor. Saltzman was promoted by the magazine to fashion director in 1995.
In 2017, Saltzman collaborated with Californian footwear label Rocket Dog, designing a capsule collection of platform sandals.
