Given this week’s endless string of step-and-repeats, it’s fitting that W Magazine threw a fete to honor some of the collections’ busiest individuals, the celebrity stylist. The New York Affair party, held at Midtown’s Hudson Terrace, was co-hosted by Charlotte Ronson, Paula Patton and Nicole Chavez (the brains behind Rachel Bilson’s red carpet looks).

“I wouldn’t be as well accessorized without her,” said Monet Mazur of her stylist — and date for the evening — Jessica King. “But my style wouldn’t be all that different.”

Which makes one wonder, why hire one then? Paula Patton wasn’t sold.

“Stylists are very expensive,” said the starlet, who coordinates her own ensembles for red carpet events. Although she admitted they do have their value. “Once when I had gained 10 to 15 pounds, I wore a baby doll dress and everyone thought I was pregnant. I wore a belt for about three months after that.”
