In an interview with stylist Sally Lyndley, Amy Astley explained, "Stylists play a major, major role in my world! Major!" She went on to describe the criteria for Teen Vogue spreads: "I don’t want a shoot that looks like it could be in some other teen magazine; a shoot that looks too junior. That is really the kiss of death for me. The shoot must be youthful and cool but also polished and Vogue. Too junior is probably my most cutting criticism. Some stylists think that knee socks, kilts, peter pan collars, or goofy sunglasses say 'teen' but they are totally mistaken. I can’t work with people who see teenagers or teen fashion in such a cliché and simplistic manner." [Fashionista]
