Lavetta Fajardo and Kate Stromberg

Artistic styling director at Kim Vo Salon, age 27; director of cosmetics and beauty at Kim Vo salon, age 28

Style icons: Kate Moss, Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw, Kim Kardashian (Stromberg).

What they are wearing now: Joseph Ribkoff dress and Rock & Republic shoes (Stromberg); Alberto Makali jacket, BCBG Max Azria skirt, Victoria’s Secret stocking and Michael Antonio booties (Fajardo).

Ask two people for their definition of beauty and you will get different answers. These two people are no different, even though beauty is their full-time job. Says Kate: “The most beautiful experience is when you feel content and happy with yourself. And purchasing an amazing pair of shoes doesn’t hurt.” Says Lavetta: “Being in an industry filled with stunning people, I still think the most beautiful woman is my grandmother. She’s confident and classy. You can’t get any more beautiful then that.”
