Ariana Grande's new stylist talks AMA look

Celebrity stylist Law Roach loves working with her client Ariana Grande.

Pop star Ariana Grande and her new stylist Law Roach bonded over their joint appreciation of each other when they first met.

Law, whose celebrity roster includes Zendaya, Ruby Rose and Hunger Games star Willow Shields, was behind Ariana's ultra feminine American Music Awards look on Sunday (22Nov15). The Giambattista Valli Haute Couture dress featured a floral bodice and a pink ruffle and black lace skirt. She added jewelled Dsquared2 shoes and chose a chic bun over her normal half-up half-down hairstyle.

“I said, ‘I didn’t know you were that funny!’ and she’s (Ariana's) like, ‘Yeah, I’m really funny,'" Law recalled to The Hollywood reporter for their first meeting. "She said she really loved my work as an artist and I told her I loved her work as an artist. It was super chill and informal.”

Ariana's only request for the annual music awards was that she looked pretty. Law whittled the dress choice down to two options, with the Giambattista Valli taking eventual victory.

“We decided to sleep on it and see how we felt in the morning," he explained. "As soon as we saw each other’s faces in the morning it was like, ‘That’s the one.’ We had a synergy already.”

Law is now looking forward to future work with the Problem singer, who scooped Favourite Female Artists at Sunday night's (22Nov15) awards.

“Her fans and her music are her first priorities, and I got that right away," Law smiled. "The AMAs wasn’t about the look for her, it was about nailing her performance.”
