The goop Wish List: Karla Welch

One of the world’s best-known stylists, Karla Welch is famous for dressing celebrities on the red carpet, dressing the world through her brand x karla, and styling advertising for Prada and editorials for Vogue. Alongside her larger tech company Wishi, she founded the Period Company in 2020, making environmentally friendly, accessible period underwear. (Her super comfy, beautifully made reusable cotton period panties cost about $12 a pair.) Her own style—perfect vintage Levi’s, tendril-y pixie cut, impossibly fresh skin—always stops us in our tracks.
