Gretta Monahan, a self-made style maven, is harnessing the fashion world by its stilettos and reinventing the concept of style and pampering for everyone from Hollywood superstars to the mom next door. Offering fashion and beauty tips to people of all ages and income levels is a philosophy that Gretta’s award winning collection of sleek boutiques and spa emporiums stretches from Boston to Connecticut, while her regular television appearances on The Rachael Ray Show bring her down-to-earth and friendly approach into the homes of fashion-hungry viewers across the country. With her first book, Style and The Successful Girl (October 2013, Gotham Books, Hardcover & Ebook) Gretta’s expertise is now available to the masses.
Known for fashion as much as she is for beauty, Gretta jets off to Milan, New York City, and Paris every season to attend shows and visit designers in their ateliers to hand pick the items offered in her clothing boutique. Gretta Luxe, Gretta’s Wellesley-based boutique, showcases the hottest trends from top designers like Balenciaga, Chloe, and Proenza Schouler. Each client receives personalized guidance from expert stylists who assist with picking out the perfect frock or stems. “Every customer gets a celebrity experience from a highly skilled expert,” says Gretta.
