With a knack for creativity and a finger firmly on the pulse of street style, Rebecca Weinberg has established herself as the go-to expert for the new, the now and the next in fashion. An Emmy Award winner for her work as costume designer for the celebrated HBO series Sex and the City, Rebecca has worked on numerous film and television series, including The Street, Spin City, The Substitute, and Miami Rhapsody. Her celebrity clients include Sarah Jessica Parker, Sting and Trudie Styler, Jennifer Connelly, Jennifer Esposito, Angie Harmon, Jessica Simpson and Paris and Nicky Hilton. Beyond the big and small screen, Rebecca has found great success styling major advertising campaigns for such prominent clients as Maybelline, Pantene, Neutrogena, Sephora, Clairol, Rada Watches, Conair, Proctor & Gamble, and Olympus.
Rebecca moved to New York when she was 17 with dreams of becoming a performer. Now, following career twists and turns that included stints as assistant to such fashion icons as David LaChapelle, Richard Alvarez and Patricia Fields, she finds herself happily in front of the camera after all. Her eclectic style and irrepressible personality have made her a natural in her role as celebrity style expert for such television shows as The Look For Less, America’s Next Top Model, Full Frontal Fashion, Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style, and Make Me a Supermodel. A well-known figure on the international fashion scene, Rebecca has been profiled in the likes of Us Weekly, InStyle and Women’s Wear Daily, among many others. She is currently featured as a “Style & Trend Expert”on Ebay.com, as well as the current “Guest Guru” for W magazine’s WDesires.com. With her unique perspective on high-low fashion, the mixing of modern and vintage, and the eschewing of trends—along with a complete fearlessness in expressing her sometimes controversial opinions—Rebecca serves as the perfect counterpoint to the typical fashion pundits and their focus on the “look of the moment.” And that’s something that suits her just fine.
Rebecca divides her time between New York and the Hamptons. She is an avid sportsman who loves the outdoors. She runs a minimum of 5 miles a day, and can be seen zipping around Manhattan on her scooter – her preferred method of transportation. A practioner of yoga , Rebecca prefers the outdoors – hiking, waterskiing, or riding one of her 3 motorcycles. She was awarded the gold medal for both the 200 meter and 400 meter race at the New York City held Gay Games. “I find as much inspiration from my sporting life as I do from the international runways!", says Rebecca.
