Who Is Rachel Zoe
It’s no wonder this unique style aficionada found her way on her own. With no formal fashion training under her belt, Rachel Zoe has carved out a lucrative, influential career that she’d probably describe as “ba-na-nas.”
American fashion designer Rachel Zoe has a net worth of $16 million dollars, as of 2020.
A Louis Of Her Own
Born in Millburn, New Jersey, Rachel’s parents were art collectors who exposed Rachel to the finer things in life at a young age. When she was only 13 years old, Rachel’s mother took her to Paris. The trip sparked Rachel’s love affair with fashion and was the catalyst to Rachel owning her very first Louis Vuitton bag. Although Rachel went on to pursue her B.A. in sociology and psychology at George Washington University, her fascination with fashion was still satisfied by working as a stylist at YM magazine throughout her undergrad years.
After graduation, Rachel met Nicole Richie and signed on to be her stylist. With Rachel’s help, Nicole became the poster child for the Bohemian chic revolution. Rachel began adding to her clientele rolodex when she began styling young Hollywood stars like Mischa Barton and Lindsay Lohan. It was Rachel’s lack of formal fashion training that gave her the real life edge she delivered to her effortlessly cool clients. Rachel went on to nab A-list clients like Cameron Diaz, Kate Hudson, Demi Moore and Anne Hathaway and she was soon the most sought-after stylist in Hollywood.
A To Zoe
In 2007, Rachel decided to begin branding herself and branching out to those seeking a little style advice who don’t have a red carpet to flaunt it on. Rachel penned her first book, Style A to Zoe: The Art of Fashion, Beauty and Everything Glamour, which landed on the New York Times bestseller list. She then went on to expand her fashion footprint when she appeared as a guest judge on America’s Next Top Model and Project Runway while also becoming a style consultant for the footwear and accessories company Piperlime.com.
Although all of L.A. Land had their eye on the “it” stylist, the world really got a taste of Rachel Zoe when she landed her own reality series, The Rachel Zoe Project, in 2008. The show brought to life the quirky stylist and her cohort of assistants as well as a repertoire of catchphrases like “Shut the front door,” “I die” and “bananas!”
Rachel’s Newest Accessory: A Baby
Although the reality show let viewers in on Rachel’s seemingly fabulous life, it also exposed the stylist’s insecurities and battles with the media over her controversially thin frame. The relationship between Rachel and her longtime husband, Rodger Berman, was also highlighted as they battled over their different ideas about when to expand their family. But Rodger’s constant baby badgering paid off when, in November of 2010, Rachel confirmed that she and Rodger were expecting their first child. The stylish couple welcomed their son, Skyler, in March of 2011.
Whether she’s sporting a designer purse, a baby bump or passing her fashion knowledge onto her A-list clients, Rachel always has her finger on the pulse of what’s hot. And whether you can afford to wrap yourself in Chanel or not, everyone’s taking cues from her style sense.
