World Of Style: Celeste Hughey

The Television Writer’s Laid Back California Glamour Makes us Look Forward to Dressing for Fall in Los Angeles.

“Growing up, I actually wanted to be the President. And I took it very seriously,” says Celeste Hughey, the Los Angeles-based TV writer, about her meandering career path. For Hughey, who has just moved into a brand new home in the city’s Silverlake area, the ambition she had to hold the highest office in the land is just as strong as it was when she was a child, but now turned to more creative endeavors including being a key member of the writer’s room on the Netflix show, “Dead to Me.”

World Of Style: Celeste Hughey

When she’s in the writer’s room, she claims she is partial to wearing the “equivalent of a high-end potato sack, paired with a chunky, blanket-like sweater-cape hybrid.” When she is out with friends or hosting one of her famous dinner parties, she opts for a colorful, flowy dress or chic jumpsuit. “My personal aesthetic is ‘Solange on Vacation.’” She says.

Hughey adds that while she has always loved fashion, fashion has often failed to reciprocate. Options in her size have been limited and she claims that for most of her life, clothing was a source of great distress and discomfort.

“Clothes are powerful and magnetic: if you feel good, you send good energy out into the world and that, in turn, draws good energy right back to you.”

“I got creative and used color to cultivate my personal style,” she says. “The fashion world is finally catching up to my body, but my closet still has a distinctly Hilary Banks color palette.”

She favors color, print and long dresses that fall beautifully against her statuesque frame.

Long dresses and caftans are ideal when entertaining in her new home - a traditional mid-century post and beam that was recently renovated to be more open and modern.

“I wasn’t looking for a specific type of house, just a comfortable feeling,” says Hughey. “I want people to feel welcome, like they can drop in on a Sunday and hang out all day. Nothing makes me happier than having people I love together eating and drinking. My philosophy is this: if it’s my birthday party, it should feel like your birthday party too. If you come to my home, you are going to eat well, be topped off often, feel inspired by your company, and have a headache the next day.”
