Celebrity Stylist Reveals Latest Muse: Forest Whitaker’s Daughter

Celebrity stylist Phillip Bloch, who has styled everyone from Halle Berry to Beyoncé, writes in his column for ABC News that Forest Whitaker’s oldest daughter, Autumn, is “my my newest protégé at 16.”

Bloch, whose “BFF and traveling buddy” is Whitaker’s 36-year-old wife Keisha, says Autumn “doesn’t fall far from the tree!” The in-demand stylist accompanied the Whitakers and Autumn to Paris during Couture Fashion Week, where Keisha was “thrilled at the idea of seeing fashion to the umpteenth degree.”

“I think there has to be a happy middle ground between couture and ready-to-wear,” Keisha, who Bloch says is “one of the few who actually wears couture,” says of her fashion philosophy. “In fashion, there are definitely those statement moments and other times where classic chic and subtle work best.”

Bloch writes, “I’m happy to say I had a part in one of those statement moments, when I dressed Keisha for the 2006 Oscars. The buttercup yellow bias-draped Georges Chakra [pictured with Bloch and the Whitakers] sheath she wore the year her husband Forest won for best actor helped launch the couturier’s successful foray into red carpet dressing.”
