Sebastian Hunt and his styling team Dylan Richards are kind of a big deal not only in New Zealand, but around the world.

Most notably, they are part of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s official styling team in Los Angeles and have worked with them extensively.

Yes, the couple that reportedly splashes out US $10,000 a month on their 3-year-old daughter North's styling alone, are turning to a couple of Kiwi lads to make themselves look good.

Hunt and Richards also worked on Kanye’s Yeezy fashion zine and the much-publicised Yeezy Season 3 fashion line launch that took place during the rapper’s Life Of Pablo album listening party.

so happy to be apart of this! #yeezyseason3

But they haven’t forgotten their roots - they routinely collaborate with Kiwi talent.

Remember that selfie jacket of Kim K’s that everyone went nuts over?

It was commissioned by Hunt and Richards from Kiwi designer Clara Chon.

They also styled dancers in some of the video clips for Justin Bieber’s Purpose: The Movement - which was choreographed by fellow Kiwi Parris Goebel - including the video for No Sense, and the MTV VMA nominated Sorry video. 

And more recently, they came home and worked with Kiwi designers Stolen Girlfriends Club at Fashion Week.

And while it may have taken a brief appearance on Real Housewives of Auckland for the spotlight to come back on Hunt here in New Zealand, the accomplished stylist is taking it in his stride.

He's been sharing screen shots of his appearance in the Herald's recap and is even getting in on the online jokes about his appearance, too. 

Keep up all the good - and hilarious - work, Sebastian.
