Kerry Cordero, Personal Stylist and Owner of The First Look Image
You are all - each and every one of you - beautiful, lovely, graceful or striking in some physical way. And each of you can look exceptional in your clothes. But it is your radiance coming through your clothes, hair and makeup that is the real gem. I believe personal styling is about revealing your radiance - that stuff inside you that sparks up your world – by styling you in colors, shapes, patterns, textures and lines that express your radiance and highlight your beauty.
How can that happen? I listen to you and watch what you are wearing so that I gain insight into you. Then, I use principles of art and design and the elemental style system to help you find clothes that call out your most lovely physical aspect and make you feel brilliant.
How do you know if your clothes clearly represent you and make you radiant? If they don't you'll have noticed your business casual clothes feel more weekend wear, your speaking look is distracting or unfinished and your dating and networking clothes make you pause and worry as you walk in. You tend to feel so-so or grayed out or just a little irrelevant about your appearance when you show up.
But here's the good news! You don't have to be the most famous, expensive or top-of-the-heap person in the room to bring in a stylist to help you. You have to want to show up bigger, connect with others more readily, fulfill a big goal or you have the desire to appreciate yourself more as you go along with whatever you do.

Clients live all across the US and we work online or they live in NYC, NJ, Westchester, Eastern PA or they travel to Silicon Valley in California. I have been in the style business for ten years now (whew!) and I bring a host of life experiences to your styling. I have a BA and MA in English Literature, I've rowed for Rutgers Women’s Crew, built a successful career in corporate sales, earned certifications in color, theory, image and makeup from FIT in NYC and the AICI. I led the AICI NY Tri-State Chapter, I take CEU’ed courses each year and I've developed new concepts and content for WYE training. I speak and train for GE, IBM, KPMG and BMW and work backstage each season for NY Fashion Week. My family evenings at home with my husband, son and our tuxedo cat Henry are a highlight of my day. We sit and chat in the kitchen, cook and sip a little something, let the cat in and out a few hundred times and talk over dinner. That's where I go to each day to reinvigorate my radiance!
