As we are now in the throes of summer, we’ve asked several accomplished women of style whom we admire to come up with 10 sweet indulgences for the season. This week we invited Amanda Ross—an internationally renowned fashion director, stylist, costume and jewelry designer, and consultant for celebrities, film, TV series, and designers. She is known for the elegant, refined, and sophisticated eye  she has developed through her years as a staple in the fashion industry.

Amanda is the former Market Director at Harper’s Bazaar U.S. Following this venture, she moved to L.A. to become editor at large of C Magazine. Now based in New York City, Amanda has worked as Consulting Fashion Director at Anne Klein and the Fashion Director for Departures magazine, where she had her own monthly column called “Uptown Girl.” In October 2013 she launched her first jewelry collection with Grossé, in Tokyo. She is a N.Y.C. founding member of both the British Fashion Council and React to Film.  She sits on the Board of Directors at Free Arts N.Y.C. and is also actively involved in a number of charity projects.—Ed.
