Best of Masters: Brenda Cooper

Brenda Cooper is TV’s preeminent fashion expert and image consultant. Many know her as the co-host on E! Fashion Emergency, where she takes people from drab to dramatic. This London-born style expert won an Emmy Award for her costume design talents on the hit TV series The Nanny. Brenda’s mission is to unravel the mystery of fashion and make it available to anybody on any budget, whether they are a size 2 or 22. She has dressed Hollywood’s fashion elite and shared her “insider knowledge” with loyal viewers through her television shows and personal appearances.

Interviewed by Winn Claybaugh, Brenda loves talking about her approach to awakening a person’s sense of self through clothing, color, and confidence.

“Brenda Cooper has an Emmy, and I got to hold it!” Winn says. “I fell in love with her the minute we first hugged. Her advice is right on the mark, delivered with heart and class.”
