Wayne Scot Lukas
For more than thirty-eight years, Wayne Scot Lukas has been a top celebrity fashion stylist who has worked with many of the most famous faces (and bodies) in the world. His styling can be seen in countless magazines, including Vogue, Elle, Arena, Marie Claire, Us Weekly, People, W, Vibe, Premiere, Entertainment Weekly, Italian and British Vogue, and Harper's Bazaar, among others.
Wayne was the lead stylist and assistant designer for the New York Times-bestseller, Timeless Beauty by Christie Brinkley; and one of the co-authors and support on the New York Times bestselling books Making Faces and Face Forward by celebrity makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin. He was the head stylist and creative director of Spiegel magazine. He has also been featured in The End of Fashion: How Marketing Changed the Clothing Business Forever (2000) by Teri Agins, Secrets of Stylists: An Insider’s Guide to Styling the Stars by Sasha Charnin Morrison (2011), House of Versace: The Untold Story of Genius, Murder and Survival by Deborah Ball (2011) and Jersey Girls: The Fierce and the Fabulous by Marie Moss and Barri Leiner Grant.
As a costume designer and visual consultant, Wayne worked on Tina Turner’s “Wildest Dreams” World Tour, and with Gianni Versace executing Wayne’s vision for her “24/7” World Tour; on special opening costumes for Janet's “All For You” World Tour and for her infamous “wardrobe malfunction” costume at the 2004 Super Bowl; and styled the wardrobe for Justin Timberlake and his dancers for the “Justified” World Tour. Several of his costume designs were featured in The Metropolitan Museum of Art's "Rock Style” exhibit, which traveled around the globe. (Three of his designs were considered the best costumes in rock’n’roll history.)
On television, Wayne was the co-host/stylist of the hit TLC fashion intervention show What Not To Wear in 2003-2004. For the Home Shopping Network, he created the fastest-selling, most popular line for a new designer in the history of HSN, and sold the line on-air in 2007. He also sold his successful line on SHOPNBC (now called Evine) and Shop Canada with Joan Rivers. Wayne’s likeability and his way of speaking directly to the public at every financial level, along with his ability to create an honest sell at rapid speed, has made him a sought-after consultant for other young designers and on air TV personalities.
In addition, he has collaborated with the world's leading directors and photographers. His award-winning video and film work has been featured on HBO, VH-1, MTV, Netflix, and BET. Wayne has appeared regularly on Inside Edition, Access Hollywood, and Entertainment Tonight.

He’s a featured performer and producer in a documentary being released in 2020 discussing scandal and abuse of models in the fashion world. Wayne can also be seen in many behind-the-scenes world tour videos still viewed and seen on YouTube and other media outlets..
Today, Wayne is the go-to social media expert and brand consultant for designers, celebrities, and Fortune 500 companies.
