From InStyle.com, Vampire Diaries actress Nina Debrov on her collaboration with stylist Ilaria Urbinati:
“If something doesn’t work, even if it’s a big designer look, she’s not going to make me wear it just because. It’s whatever I feel best in and what is event-appropriate. That’s why I love her so much.”

I have to believe this is Ilaria’s philosophy with all her clients: wearing what they feel best wearing and what is event-appropriate. And I would say that proved very successful for RA, who was definitely “wearing the clothes instead of the clothes wearing him” during TH press junket and various red carpet appearances. On each occasion, he looked comfortable, confident, relaxed and oh, so handsome.
There was attire more cutting-edge for Tokyo, for example–that shiny blue waxed wool suit–and a classic tux that harkened back to film stars of old for the London royal premiere.
The black hoodie and leather for NYC–youthful and a little edgy. We adored those English schoolboy vest-and-tie looks for press conferences– and who among us can forget the retro look of the cardigan in Canada? Traditional and sexy and cuddly all at the same time. Thank you, Ilaria. We love you, too!
