Steven Lake as he appears at Nikon’s Look Good In Pictures with Carson Kressley:
Marta Walsh: When did your fascination for style begin?
Steven Lake: It began early. When I was a kid my mom worked as a Mary Kay director. I would carry her bags and go with her to women’s houses. I watched as she educated women on how to wear makeup to enhance their beauty and give them confidence. I also remember being in high school and the girls would show up in the fall with new hair do’s. Some completely reinvented themselves. I remember thinking “wow” how cool!
MW: What was your first big break as a stylist?
SL: When I first moved to LA I stopped doing hair for awhile but would still cut friends hair on the side. I was at a magazine party and the owners of the magazine were commenting on my friend’s haircut. When they found out I did it they asked me if I’d be interested in doing a photo shoot for their magazine. Of course I said “sure”! (I had never done a shoot before and had no idea what to expect.) I showed up on the shoot to find a top photographer, makeup artist and stylist. Then…in walks Christina Ricci. Wow! Intimidating? Yes! Right place, right time I guess. I was very lucky!
MW: Your runway, editorial and celebrity portfolio is endless. What were some of your most memorable collaborations?
SL: My most memorable collaboration was with Creamsilk by Unilever in the Philippines. Check it out!!! Go to… Steven Lake Creamsilk or go to Steven Lake Creamsilk on www.youtube.com, I had a blast!
MW: Which celebrity would you love to style in the future?
SL: Brittney Spears of course!
MW: What projects are you working on these days and what’s next for Steven Lake?
SL: Tomorrow I am working with my client Brooke Burke for The People’s Choice Awards. She just won Dancing With The Stars! Yeah! My client Sara Bareilles just got nominated for a Grammy and we just shot her new video. Also my client Carson Kressley (of Nikon’s Look Good in Pictures) will be keeping me busy this year, I’m sure. I love working with him!
