Celebrity stylist Jaden Smith shares LA fashion tips

In a downtown Los Angeles studio, stylist and designer Marquise Miller focuses on her mission: styling. Not his normal rolodex of clients, which include Oscar nominee and director Shaka King, Internet Syd, Big Sean, Hit-Boy and Jaden Smith. Today, Miller is styling himself. His mind is racing as he paces the room wondering what to wear first. He lays and hangs pieces of his personal wardrobe over an industrial clothing rack: worn Dickies, earth toned and tie-dyed sweaters, Gucci loafers, quilted trousers. You can see his brain making connections, sifting through that texture and that color, that material and that size, that top and that bottom, that jewel and those kicks. He rummages through everything just to pretty much stick to the exact outfit he arrived in, but calls out a dark denim jacket for the needed layer. The bucket hat must work for a different look. “Yummy,” he concludes.

There is perhaps no better term to describe Miller’s signature approach to style. For him, a delicious look is both cozy and sexy. Standing in the mirror, he looks at himself confidently. He tunes in to Gunna’s new album DS4EVER. Marquise Miller is all vibes. “I make people feel special with clothes,” he tells me.

Miller was born in LA and grew up in Hawthorne. Fabulous Burger, the South Bay Galleria, Fox Hills Mall (before the Westfield Shopping Center was rebranded), and the Beverly Center were all staples of its formative years. He attended Los Angeles County High School for the Arts as a theater kid who dreamed of acting, but he also grew up with a keen attention to costume design. He studied the works of Ruth Carter. “I realized how important wardrobe is. If you think of Malcolm X, if you think of Jungle Fever, if you think of one of those cult films that Ruth Carter got her hands on, you remember this wardrobe,” he says. While working at My 2 Cents for chef Alisa Reynolds, whom he credits as his mentor, he decided to quit acting and focus on fashion. Miller’s Room was created in 2016 “to stimulate my creativity”.

Miller’s Room originally ended up at the Melrose Trading Post. Today, in an extension from its original landing, Miller’s Room is both a vintage seller popping up across LA and a styling service booking private appointments. Miller moderates conversations with other creatives he admires and has an In the Mode series running at the Soho House Warehouse. In February Miller and his team produced a market – a place for shopping, eating, dancing and delicious vibes.

Clients hire Miller because of his warm personality, his “keen eye” and “my confidence,” he says. Here he is wearing one TLZ L’FEMME TOP and TODD ​​ALEXANDER CAP.

Ultimately, Miller connects the practice of collecting, curating, and styling clothing with his desire to create spaces where communities can gather and conversations can take place.

Style is about elevation, he reminds me. It’s not just about feeling comfortable and sexy. It’s all about finding the right balance between cozy, sexy and cool.
