Brad Goreski, born in August 15, 1977, is a celebrity fashion stylist and television personality. In 2015, he joined Fashion Police as a new co-host.
His interest in fashion started at the age of 12, when he read his first Vogue. Following his move to Los Angeles from Canada, he studied art history at the University of Southern California. Once he graduated, he got an internship at Vogue and W magazines in New York, and was finally hired as the west coast assistant at Vogue.
His clients are, for instance, the following: Jessica Alba, Demi Moore, Christina Ricci, Rashida Jones, Kaley Cuoco, Natalia Dyer, Minka Kelly.
In 2012, Goreski published his biography, Born to be Brad, and was also selected to be the exclusive brand stylist for Kate Spade NY. What is more, Goreski regularly provides editorial work to several magazines, including InStyle, Details, BlackBook, and LA Confidential.
About the book, Goreski said: “My book is about fashion obviously. It’s also a very in-depth look at my life and it really talks about the obstacles that I face in my life and how to go about achieving your dreams and aspirations; and overcoming those obstacles in order to get what you want in life”. He was also the star of It’s a Brad, Brad World, the Bravo docudrama about his life and career.
In 2014, Goreski was selected for a new co-host of Fashion Police on the E! Network.
His closet is full of Christian Louboutin loafers and Tom Ford blazers.“I’ve been in love with fashion since I was a kid,” Goreski explained to the Coveteur magazine. “I was always putting looks together. I was back home in Canada at the beginning of October, and a friend of mine from public school sent a photo of me in geometry class. We were making little triangles of paper, [and] I taped mine to my ears as statement earrings [laughs].”
“This kind of fashion fearlessness still permeates both his own personal style—he is partial to statement-making bow ties, velvet blazers, and fringed leather jackets—and the glamorous red carpet looks for which his clients are known.”
About the process of styling, Goreski said: “Everybody sees the end product, which is the celebrity on the red carpet looking beautiful, hair and makeup, and gorgeous jewels. But before that, there’s so much planning on my part, “There are hundreds of emails, and trying to get the dresses you want for your clients from the different designers. There are multiple fittings. Then there’s selecting the accessories and discussing hair and makeup.”
Originally from Port Perry, he now splits his time between Los Angeles and New York City, where he stays with his husband, Gary Janetti, and their dog, Penelope.
Goreski is known for his dapper way of dressing, often including bow ties and bright suits within his daywear.
Lately, in honor of National Coming Out Day, Goreski shared an emotional post about the struggles he faced in high school.
“I’ve always expressed myself through fashion. I think it was my way of communicating to the world something that I wasn’t yet ready to say,” Goreski wrote on Instagram. “This was taken at a high school dance, one of the very few I attended.”
“I was bullied so much at school I never wanted to spend more time there than I had to,” he said. “I was terrified every day that I was going to be beaten up by someone, so I ate my lunch in the stairwell with a couple of friends (Karen and Kelly) who were nice enough to sit with me because I was afraid to go into the cafeteria.”
