Born in New York City, CRISTINA EHRLICH became bi-coastal at a young age, spending her youth in Los Angeles and returning to New York to study dance at NYU. Growing up with a mother who was a showroom model and interior designer, and a grandfather who was a clothing designer, Cristina was innately drawn to visual expression, and inspired by travel, dance, fashion and the European culture. Upon graduating from NYU, she traveled to Europe to continue her dance studies and eventually landed back in Los Angeles. She danced professionally until the age of 27, and retired to pursue her other love, fashion.
After assisting and forming a styling partnership, Cristina branched out on her own. She now works regularly with Hollywood’s finest including Penelope Cruz, Margot Robbie, Julianna Margulies, and Tina Fey. She has worked with photographers such as Patrick Demarchelier, Mert and Marcus, Peter Lindbergh and Peggy Sirota and her contributions to the fashion scene span celebrity, editorial, advertising as well as design. Most recently Cristina announced a design collaboration with QVC and was awarded “Celebrity Stylist of the Year” at the 2012 Style Awards in New York City.
Cristina is currently collaborating with Pandora as a brand ambassador. Her style philosophy is defined by classic, chic and timeless sensibility with a modern edge.
