Wait, When Did Wendy Williams Become a Style Icon?

Curated via Twitter from W Magazine’s twitter account….

I then moved to New York City in 2012 and attended the Fashion Institute of Technology for their one-year associate degree program majoring in communication design. While attending F. I. T. , I interned in the wardrobe department at The Wendy Williams Show.

Not that it’s exactly a new thing for her to serve a look on her talk show—but when she stepped out wearing looks by designers Pyer Moss, Wales Bonner, and Telfar last month, the Internet came to a grinding halt. (Telfar even went so far as to post Williams in one of their turtlenecks on their Instagram grid not once, but twice, in praise of the talk show host.

Sinclair spoke to W about his decision to dress Williams in all black designers for the month of February, what she won’t wear, and the formula for a "classic off-duty Wendy look".

You recently put Wendy in a lot of looks by young black designers, and it seemed to shock a lot of people once they noticed her wearing Telfar, Wales Bonner, and Pyer Moss.

Upon completing the program at F. I. T. , I worked for a bit doing corporate women’s accessory design until one day I received a call regarding interviewing for the wardrobe assistant position at the Wendy show.

I’m talking about Wendy Williams, the longtime radio personality and daytime talk show provocateur.

What message do you want to send with the looks you style Wendy in for her show?

In terms of textures, Wendy looks good in any knit fabric.

For the last day of Black History Month, you styled Wendy in a custom Dapper Dan look.

We want to create anticipation for the moment when Wendy walks out through the double doors and out to the stage to greet her cohosts (the studio audience).

I feel so lucky that Wendy and I were able to collaborate on such a magnificent moment with the Dapper Dan team.

My go-to color for Wendy is definitely cobalt blue or as Wendy calls it “show blue” (she calls it that because it’s the color of our seat covers in the audience).
