Now that awards show season has officially ended, THR unveiled its seventh annual list of The Most Powerful Stylists in Hollywood.

Taking the number one spot this year is Karla Welch, the stylist behind this season's red carpet breakout star, Ruth Negga. Welch's ability to turn the Hollywood newcomer into a fashion force on the red carpet (while wearing an ACLU ribbon, nonetheless) helped her jump a whopping eight spots on the list after ranking at number nine in last year's list. Rounding out the top five of 25 were Petra Flannery, Kate Young, Elizabeth Stewart and Julia von Boehm.

Also notably making his debut on this year's list is Law Roach, the stylist behind Celine Dion's incredible style transformation last year. Along with Dion, Roach also styles Zendaya and is the co-creative director of her fashion line, Daya by Zendaya—making him a rising force in the styling world in itself. Micaela Erlanger (the force behind both Meryl Streep and Lupita Nyong'o's style) and Jason Bolden (who gave us all those wonderful Taraji P. Henson looks this season) are also among those featured on this year's list.
