Whether you love to covet her A-list clients or live to loathe her spotlight-seeking ways, you have to admit celebrity stylist, Rachel Zoe, has some chops. The blonde sylph is grabbing attention for making risky (and sometimes Worst Dressed List-worthy) choices for her decidedly waifish clienteleâ€”her past and current roster includes Nicole Richie, Paris Hilton, Mischa Barton and Keira Knightley.
When sheâ€™s not sitting front row at Fashion Week or partying with her stable of styled starlets, sheâ€™s a fashion multi-tasker. Unlike many of her fellow star stylists, Zoe hasnâ€™t developed her own line (yet), but sheâ€™s done just about everything else one can do in the fashion world. She has designed a line of handbags for Leiber (score her Greek-glam Medusa bag for a mere $3,995), developed chic uniforms for Beverly Hillsâ€™ Thompson Hotel, and has just been appointed creative consultant to legendary fashion house Halston.
Even if you canâ€™t afford to shell out Zoeâ€™s reported $6,000-a-day styling fee, you can still benefit from her Hollywood-ready expertise. As a consultant for online retailers Revolve Clothing and Piperlime, you can get tips from Zoe from head to toe. She puts together trend-centric outfits, accessories included, at Revolve, and gives her fave shoe picks at Piperlime. To cop one of Zoeâ€™s favorite spring sandal trends, try the Kenzie Reserved wedge ($70) in white and cork.
