Camille's passion for modern, stress-free entertaining has made her a sought-after event designer, as well as an expert in lifestyle and design to readers around the globe. As the founder and creative director of camillestyles.com, she shares the creative entertaining ideas that inspire her parties and her life with hundreds of thousands of readers every month. On the event design side of the company, Camille Styles Events, her team brings creativity, expertise and an eye for innovative design to each of its clients, allowing them to entertain in high style and create an unforgettable experience for their guests.

As a child, Camille's parents frequently exposed her to renowned art museums, inspiring natural settings and great films...and were the enthusiastic guests of the endless tea parties she threw for her well-dressed dolls. As a result, she developed a passion for beauty at an early age and dreamed of becoming a fashion designer or pastry chef. Years later, as a fashion assistant at a New York City PR firm, she discovered the world of events, and a true love affair was born. However, the artistic vibe and outdoor lifestyle of Austin called her back to her home state, and it was there that she began to build her expertise as an event planner at a high-end catering company, then as event director at an interactive marketing agency. In 2008, Camille stepped out on her own to launch Camille Styles Events, where she planned intimate parties and lavish corporate events for well-heeled and influential clients in Austin and beyond. As her blog, CamilleStyles.com, began to gain readership and recognition, it grew into a lifestyle and entertaining resource for home hostesses around the globe as well as a springboard for numerous collaborations with national lifestyle media.

Today, Camille and her team of nine contributors create fresh content for the site 2 - 3 times daily, including original recipes, inspiring DIY projects and cutting-edge video concepts. Camille is also a regular lifestyle contributor to HGTV.com and the host of HGTV’s new mobile party planning app. Her modern aesthetic and eye for detail come together to create parties that are simply chic and all about fun.
