About Rachel Zoe
In 2005, Zoe was hired by reality TV star Nicole Richie as a stylist. Zoe’s association with Richie led to tabloid coverage that elevated her profile. Zoe became known as the pioneer of the ‘boho-chic’ look. This look is influenced by the 1970s, consisting of oversized jewelry, loose-fitting dresses and shirts, paired with a slim frame. Those wearing the look were described as “Zoebots”.
She was born Rachel Zoe Rosenzweig in New York City, the daughter of art collectors Leslie and Ron Rosenzweig. Ron Rosenweig managed two different companies. She has a sister, Pamela Rosenzweig. Zoe dropped her last name in favor of her middle when she began her career as a fashion stylist, as Rosenzweig sounded “too Jewish”.
Zoe met Rodger Berman in 1991, when both were attending The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. They married in 1998, and have two sons, born in March 2011 and December 2013. The family live in Los Angeles.
Zoe began her career working for YM Magazine aged 22, before leaving to work as a freelance publicist after three years. She later changed her focus to fashion. Around 2002–03, Zoe worked with her “first big client”, Jennifer Garner. In 2004, Zoe styled Garner for the Academy Awards, which she considers a turning point for her career as a stylist.
Critics accused Zoe of promoting the eating disorder anorexia nervosa, both during the height of her fame as a celebrity stylist in the mid-2000s and in retrospective work on that period: writing for Grazia in 2020 on the 2000s fashion revival of the early 2020s.
In 2007 Zoe partnered with Served as the face of Samsung’s BlackJack cell phone national ad campaign. In September 2008, Zoe’s reality series, The Rachel Zoe Project, debuted on Bravo. The series’ second season premiered in August 2009. Bravo announced they would be picking up a third season of the show which premiered in August 2010 and covered the departure of Zoe’s longtime assistant, Taylor Jacobson, while introducing her new assistant, Ashley.
Zoe founded a free daily newsletter called The Zoe Report in August 2009, which later grew into a lifestyle brand. The newsletter featured items that Zoe was coveting in the worlds of fashion, beauty and lifestyle, and had over 750,000 subscribers. In 2009, the Luxe Rachel Zoe collection, a QVC exclusive consisting of handbags, jewelry, scarves, sunglasses, and outerwear, was announced. The line sold over 260,000 units.
In 2010, she made an appearance on Gossip Girl as herself. Zoe also appeared on VH1 reality TV show Barely Famous. In 2011, Zoe launched Zoe Beautiful focused on all things beauty. The Zoe Report was acquired by Bustle Digital Group in 2019.
In July 2015, a talk show entitled Fashionably Late with Rachel Zoe was announced, with Zoe as host and focusing on what’s hot and what’s not in the fashion world. The show lasted for one season. Richie collaborated with accessories maker Judith Leiber on a line of bags. She teamed up with Quinny and Maxi-Cosi for a 2016 collection of baby strollers and car seats.
In 2015 The Zoe Report launched Box of Style, a service that delivers a selection of Zoe-approved goods to subscribers’ doorsteps four times a year. Consumers may purchase a single box for $100 or pay $350 for an annual subscription. In 2019, a partnership between Zoe and Starbucks Asia Pacific was announced, with a six-piece collection of Starbucks X Rachel Zoe branded items appearing in select Starbuck stores in Asia.
During the mid-2000s, Zoe’s look was heavily associated with Nicole Richie, who hired Zoe as a stylist in 2005, as well as with actresses Mischa Barton and Lindsay Lohan. Zoe’s influence on her clients was discussed in the media, with speculation that she was responsible for Richie’s widely-reported weight loss and more generally setting a trend for ‘size zero’ bodies. Zoe manages lifestyle brand The Zoe Report, which began as a newsletter which she launched in 2009. She launched her eponymous fashion brand in 2011. From 2008 until 2013, Zoe starred in the Bravo reality television series The Rachel Zoe Project, which ran for five seasons.
