Kotsiopoulos began his career with over eight years in the Style department at The New York Times Magazine. In his capacity as Fashion Associate, he was market editor and producer for photo shoots all over the world with celebrities including Julia Roberts, Salma Hayek, Eve, Kirsten Dunst, Eva Mendes, Kate Beckinsale, Mischa Barton, Gwen Stefani, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Cate Blanchett, among many others.

He has styled Julianne Moore, Courteney Cox, Nicole Richie, Heidi Klum, Carolyn Murphy, Debra Messing, Anne Hathaway, Thandie Newton, Milla Jovovich, Mandy Moore, Ashley Judd, Amber Valletta and Christina Ricci for C covers since its September 2005 launch.
In addition to his magazine posts, Kotsiopoulos is a fashion consultant for select celebrities, socialites and CEOs. He is a frequent contributor to The Hollywood Reporter and has worked as a freelance stylist for publications including Details, New York Magazine, Rolling Stone, i-D, Entertainment Weekly, Interview, L’Uomo Vogue, InStyle as well as The New York Times Magazine.
In 2005 he co-hosted the “Sephora” television pilot for E!

In 2003, Kotsiopoulos co-founded and co-hosted the annual “Bag Lunch” to benefit P.S.

The one-day shopping event of luxury handbags generously donated from over one hundred designers including Louis Vuitton, Dolce &Gabbana, Christian Dior, Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren and Versace is the hottest ticket in LA for celebrities and socialites to spend guilt free. The ninth annual “Bag Lunch” was held in May 2012. The annual events have raised close to $1 million and one hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to the charity.
In 2011 and 2012, George was named one of The Hollywood Reporter’s “25 Most Power Stylists in Hollywood.” Additionally in 2011, George was featured in the coveted Out 100 List, Out Magazine’s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the LGBT communities.

Kotsiopoulos currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
