L.A. artist Kimberly Brooks turned the tables on some of Hollywood's most influential stylists.

She created "The Stylist Project," where she paints these trendsetters, who are usually behind-the-scenes, and puts them center stage.

"As a painter many things have influenced me throughout my life," said Brooks. "At about the same time when I was a teenager and I was discovering Rocco and Picasso and getting really into those people as artists, that's about the same time I started reading Seventeen and Vogue."
