Tell us the story behind your favorite wardrobe item
Marcellas: My favorite wardrobe item is a pair of brown Paul Smith boots. They are ageless and I refer to them as "Estate Pieces" that I will give to my son. I bought them full price (which is something I never do) from American Rag et Cie in Los Angeles.
What's your most memorable 'panic moment'?
Marcellas: I have them all the time. I have them every time I walk onto a set. "Am I prepared?" "Am I good enough?" "Why am I here?" I think those are the moments that let you know you are alive, connected and want to succeed.
How did you recover from it gracefully?
Marcellas: I just focus on where I am and those around me. I was hired for a reason. The people that hired me believed in me so just get on with it! You can do it!
What is your favorite era for fashion?
Marcellas: For me I love the early to mid 70’s. I love how there was this weird mélange of glam & hippie. And I love how the women’s movement and Black Pride movements effected 70’s style.
What was your big break?
Marcellas: Though I hate to say it Big Brother Season 3 in 2002 was my big break. Every time they showed me on screen they said "Marcellas Reynolds Stylist". It really helped brand me on a national level.
