Jessica Mulroney: All-Thumbs Parvenu
“Mrs. Sophie Trudeau was clear that on this very important day she wanted to wear Canadian designers. In my capacity as her friend and stylist, as well as someone with deep roots in the Canadian fashion industry, it was my privilege to help her achieve that goal.”
– Jessica Mulroney, Huffington Post, Nov. 6, 2015.
Q. There are rumblings of another project you’re involved in – advising Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau on what to wear. Are you acting as a stylist for her?”
A. “I haven’t talked about it much. People have assumed a lot of things, but I’m not really her stylist.”
– Mulroney Globe and Mail, Mar. 1, 2016.
Kelly Dunlap had already popped into bed on Thursday night when the phone rang. It was Jessica Mulroney, stylist for Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, and she needed a hat ASAP for the prime minister’s wife to greet the royals.
“I had already gotten home from the shop in the Distillery District and was in bed. Jessica had come across an article on me in the Citizen. She asked if I could send her pictures of what I had in the shop.”
Mulroney, Gregoire Trudeau’s friend and wife of media personality Ben Mulroney, was informed by Kensington Palace only a day or so before about the colours the duchess would be wearing on the trip.
