Early life

Born Rachel Zoe Rosenzweig, Zoe was raised in Millburn, New Jersey.[1] She later studied sociology and psychology at George Washington University. Before working as a stylist, Zoe worked at Gotham and YM magazine.[2]

Career

As a stylist, Zoe has worked with Cameron Diaz, Lindsay Lohan, Mischa Barton, Nicole Richie, and Keira Knightley. Zoe's current client list includes Jennifer Garner, Kate Hudson, Kate Beckinsale, Debra Messing, Demi Moore, Joy Bryant, Molly Sims, Eva Mendes, and Anne Hathaway.[3]

Zoe's influence on her clients' weight has been questioned by the media; in response:

"I don't think it's fair to say that I'm responsible because I'm a thin person, that because I'm influencing their style I'm influencing what they eat. There was this crazy rumour that I was getting diet pills from Mexico and distributing them. I was like, 'Okay, I've never even tried cocaine. I don't do drugs — I'm too much of a control freak."[2]

Unlike other stylists, Zoe is known for appearing on the red carpet in gowns just as glamorous as those of her clients. Mario Lavandeira, editor of perezhilton.com, told W magazine,

"What I've observed is that if stylists go on the red carpet, they'll make a conscious effort to really dress down in jeans, carrying pins. You don't want to outshine your clients. Rachel dresses as well as her clients, and she'll talk to reporters.”[4]

Other notable collaborations:

Reality show

In September 2008, Zoe's reality series, The Rachel Zoe Project, debuted on Bravo.[8] The series follows Zoe, her two fashion associates, Brad Goreski and Taylor Jacobson, as well as her husband/business partner Rodger Berman. The series' second season premiered on August 24, 2009.[9] Bravo announced they would be picking up a third season of the show [10] that would cover the departure of Zoe's longtime assistant Taylor Jacobson, while introducing her new assistant, Ashley Avignone [11].

Clothing line

According to People.com's "Style Watch" website, Zoe will launch a clothing line that is described as "vintage-inspired, [and] affordable." The line will include "clothes, jewelry, handbags and a fragrance."[12]

On October 3, 2007, she released a fashion guidebook titled Style A to Zoe: The Art of Fashion, Beauty, and Everything Glamour.[13]
