"She [Lupita] is an expert in tailoring and silhouettes, and her knowledge of what suits her allows her to be more daring. She pushes me, I push her and we bring each other back down to earth," the stylist added, saying "this trust has allowed us to to see how transformative style can truly be. She's become the ultimate muse and people want to work with her."
