Famed hip-hop stylist June Ambrose getting TV show on VH1
Celebrity stylist June Ambrose has quite a list of clientele. BET reports that Ambrose has made a name for herself making sure some of hip hop's biggest names are dressed to the nines in urban clothes and fashion-forward ensembles.
According to the source, this fashion heavyweight has made everyone from Mary J. Blige and Estelle to Mariah Carey, Jay-Z and even first lady Michelle Obama look good.
In a 2011 interview with The New York Times, famed producer Swizz Beatz called out Ambrose for helping to make rappers look put-together and sophisticated.
"She single-handedly cleaned up hip hop," Beatz told the publication. "She took guys who were only used to wearing Timberland boots and baggy jeans, and put them in cuff links and Tom Ford suits."
Ambrose also spoke about her influences and visions during the same 2011 interview, claiming she is inspired to push the limits of fashion in hip hop.
"I wanted to bring high fashion to urban music, to bring aspiration, imagination, luxury," Ambrose told The New York Times.
Now, every average Joe in the U.S. can gain valuable advice from the fashion guru, as Ambrose will soon be starring in a new reality series on VH1 titled "Styled By June."
