Rock ‘n’ Roll Stylist Maryam Malakpour’s Home Has a Secret Wardrobe Room
Inside the legendary stylist’s incredibly cool Laurel Canyon home.
Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that open up to a plush green backyard; a vegetable garden, a pool, and an all-black kitchen with custom, well, everything; a cloud-like bed in the master bedroom from which you can witness a family of deer lounging every morning, and a secret hidden wardrobe room. Sounds like the best house ever, no? Well, brace yourselves—this isn’t some Pinterest fantasy. It’s a real house in Laurel Canyon, belonging to (and remodeled by) celebrity stylist Maryam Malakpour. Yes, the same Malakpour who has styled all of your favorite celebrities: Lenny Kravitz, Keith Richards, Heidi Klum, Alessandra Ambrosio, and LL Cool J included.
When she isn’t busy dressing everyone in Hollywood, Malakpour splits her time between running footwear brand Newbark, which she co-founded with her sister 10 years ago, and spending time with her husband and daughter at her amazing pad.
We were lucky enough to be welcomed into said home, and let’s just say, we’re ready to move in whenever. From a chair gifted to her by Hedi Slimane (adorned with a plaque that reads “Madame Maryam Malakpour”) to loads of mid-century modern furniture, countless photos of the stylist and her clients, and a very chic and cozy vibe, the place was pretty perfect. Even more so when we found out there was a secret wardrobe room that housed Malakpour’s client’s pieces. (Unfortunately we weren’t allowed in, but neither is anyone else, so we’ll let that one slide…for now.) As we moseyed around, she explained that she wanted her space to practically “ooze zen.” Given her windowside marble tub overlooking the garden, she nailed it.
