Celebrity Stylist Zerina Akers Dresses Model Taylor Hill with These 5 Secret Essentials

We put together the dream team of stylist Zerina Akers (who boasts clients like Beyoncé, Megan Thee Stallion, and more) and model Taylor Hill to bring you a quintessential occasion-dressing guide. And, as every fashion-obsessed person knows, all great outfits start with the epitome of a wardrobe workhorse: the bra. Read on to see where Hill’s going, what she’s wearing, and how Akers is going to dress her without sacrificing support, comfort, or style.

Occasion #1

Traveling to London Fashion Week

The goal: Comfort is key—long-haul flights call for an outfit that balances chic and cozy (whether you’re a supermodel or simply super jet lagged).

The bra: Body by Victoria Full Coverage 

The look: Zerina starts with a foundation that offers support and comfort while letting Taylor feel like she’s wearing nothing at all. She’s topping it off with a matching set which instantly elevates any cozy outfit.

Occasion #2

Girl’s Night Out

The goal: Feel confident, comfortable, and chic while rocking an ultra-low-cut neckline.

The bra: Body by Victoria Push-Up

The look: Knowing Taylor’s dress has a plunging front, Zerina chooses a bra that won’t show and gives a little extra oomph without being over the top (no pun intended).

Occasion #3

Post-Work Drinks Downtown

The goal: Give your on-set (or at-work) outfit a more low-key vibe with the addition of a T-shirt. 

The bra: Body by Victoria Invisible Lift Unlined Smooth Demi Bra

The look: Zerina takes Taylor from business to casual with the swap of her top—but everyone knows not all bras are created equal when it comes to how they sit under tees. This style is all support, no padding, and completely smooth for a seamless transition from day to night. 

Occasion #4

Date Night

The goal: Style innerwear as outerwear for a sexy-chic alternative to a classic shirt.

The bra: Very Sexy VS Archives Silk Corset Top

The look: Everyone—especially a pro stylist—knows bustiers are having a major moment in 2024. Zerina shows us an easy way to wear the trend by adding a blazer to elevate the outfit.

Occasion #5

Movie Premier

The goal: Hit the red carpet (or any other black-tie-worthy event) in an outfit that never needs to take bra straps into consideration.

The bra: Victoria’s Secret Bare Backless Strapless

The look: Complicated necklines and an open back are no match for Zerina. She confidently selects this statement-making dress for Taylor knowing her secret power is in this wear-with-anything foundational piece.
