A native of California, Leslie Rivas began styling at a young age. A lover of dark romantic, vintage, and avant-garde aesthetics, Leslie counts Tim Walker, Paolo Roversi, and Alexander McQueen as influences, and has collaborated with such artists as Brian Bowen Smith and Art Streiber. Equally adept at bringing out her subjects’ natural elegance as she is adding layers of texture and color for a more experimental look, Leslie strives for versatility and originality in her work.
Leslie’s clients include Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Macy’s, Puma, Oprah’s Harpo Productions, Chase United, Flexi, Ubisoft, Gemma Khan, and The Learning Channel. Her print credits include Yellow, People, PaPerCity, Houstonia, Local, Tribeza, and Todo magazines.
