Rachel Zoe's second season started this evening. And I must say. That bitch is amazing. Fashion forward. Unforgiving. Addicted to working for the perfect look. Passionate. Persuasive.
When looking at Cameron Diaz, whom she styled in head to toe Chanel, at the Golden Globe Awards, she said, "That dress was like in my womb for 9 months and I birthed it myself at the Golden Globes!"
And it's true. Who else can say that they asked Mr. Lagerfeld to alter one of his creations?!
From red carpet dressing to design collaborations, advertising campaigns to editorial shoots and runway shows, stylist Rachel Zoe is the go-to force among “It” starlets, fashion houses, beauty firms and magazine editors looking for a dose of effortlessly chic style. Zoe’s strength lies in a commitment to bringing out the best in the individual women she works with, including many of Hollywood’s A-list leading ladies.
Zoe’s own signature look – bronzed, sexy and wrapped up in Seventies-tinged laidback glamour – has rubbed off on well-known women and a few fashion collections alike. The Los Angeles Times noted the obvious influence of Zoe’s signature style on the runways, designers across the globe rely on Zoe for her fine tuned eye and Women’s Wear Daily traced Hollywood’s new look to Zoe’s own style.
October 2007 marked the launch of Zoe’s first tome, “Style A to Zoe” by Grand Central Publishing, a stylebook filled with insightful tips and observations by Zoe, her designer friends and star clients. The book encompasses everything glamour when it comes to home décor, jet setting, entertaining and, of course, getting dressed. “Style A to Zoe” was released in paperback domestically in September 2008 with Russian and Korean language editions to follow internationally. It was also included in the very prestigious, New York Times Best Seller List.
Zoe is continuing her mission to make fashion attainable with a full line of affordable accessories and faux fur that will debut on QVC this fall. The line encompasses jewelry, bags, shoes, hats, scarves, sunglasses, and faux fur.
She’s also entering her fourth year as a contributing editor and consultant for Piperlime.com, Gap Inc.’s online shoe and handbag destination.
Rachel has been on countless “most influential” lists from virtually every domestic and international fashion and financial publication. She is the recipient of numerous prestigious industry awards including The Fashion Group International’s 2006 Fashion Oracle Award, the Accessories Council 2006 Fashion Influencer Ace Award and Hollywood Life Magazine’s 2006 Star Stylist Award. MSN.com also named Zoe one of the “10 Most Influential Women of 2006.”
Rachel is continuing to expand her business endeavors with the second season of “The Rachel Zoe Project,” which will be premiering August 24th on Bravo.
Zoe and her husband, venture capitalist and new-media entrepreneur Rodger Berman, reside in Los Angeles.
