Stylist Kristen Ingersoll Talks Fashion, Photoshoots, and her AvA Favorites
Women of AvA:
Walk into any AvA photoshoot and you’ll find fashion editor and stylist Kristen Ingersoll prepping the models, styling the looks, and peppering the AvA philosophy of effortless, confident elegance into each and every shot. As an editor of nearly 30 years, Kristen has that je ne sais quoi approach that has landed her at the helm of some of the most influential titles in fashion. Now, as she continues her work making behind-the-scenes magic at AvA and other lifestyle brands, Ingersoll uses her expert eye and high fashion lens to interpret a designer’s dream into reality. We stole a few minutes with the stylist to chat about her collaboration with AvA and what she loves most about the brand.
I’m formerly the Fashion and Entertainment Director for the global editions of Harper's Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, and Esquire. I did that for 21 years. I was not only securing celebrities and models across titles, but also enlisting the photographers, writers, hair & makeup, while scouting locations and creating the overall shoot concepts. Before that, I was the International Bureau Chief at ELLE and ELLE DECOR for the global editions, so I’ve been working with a lot of titles over the years, bringing editorial objectives and talent to editors and their teams worldwide.
