Valentine’s Day Stylist Picks with Lauren Ferreira
For this edition of Stylist Selects, we’re doing something a little different. We connected with NYC stylist Lauren Ferreira to find out her top Valentine’s Day picks from the Complex SHOP.
Ferreira began her styling career as an intern at Kith, where she worked on some really awesome projects, including one with Colette and Fabolous. Her impressive streak of styling gigs continued with the most high-profile rapper alive. “I was assisting on Drake’s Aubrey & the Three Migos North American tour,” she says, “and it was such an amazing way to see the country. I also assisted on his 2019 Assassination Vacation European tour. That same year, I was assisting wardrobe on the ‘Life is Good’ music video (with Future) and they needed an extra—I was actually thrown in and you can see me ordering fries from 21 Savage.”
Superstar assignments aside, Ferreira recently started a new platform called Justa where she partners with public figures to auction off covetable pieces from their wardrobes. Half of the money raised is then donated to a chosen charity. “I wanted to create something that used excess and unwanted items,” she says. “My goal is to redistribute wealth to the deserving organizations calling for change.”
Lauren isn’t one to get too excited about holidays, but she makes an exception for Valentine’s Day. “It's a day to indulge,” she says. “Romantic gestures definitely go a long way and I’ll take any excuse to drink champagne.”
