Rachel Zoe's Fashion Empire

Today while laying out at my rooftop pool and enjoying the incredible 80 degree weather here in L.A. I found myself officially and completely engrossed in the newest issue of The Hollywood Reporter.  I couldn’t read the cover story fast enough. Becoming more and more inspired by every word. The subject, who else but my style icon… Rachel Zoe. Hollywood reporter named her the number one stylist to the stars. Glad it’s in print… but I certainly didn’t need T.H.R. to tell me what every girl with a closet full of stilettos already knows. Rachel and her boho chic fabulousness have been on my radar for years! “The secret to Rachel’s success is the absolute clarity of her taste and her uncynical passion for fashion,” Harper’s Bazaar editor in chief Glenda Bailey says. It seems everyone is dying over Rachel these days. But of course her biggest fan is hands down her supper supportive husband, Rodger Burman who quit his job last year to focus fully on building Rachel’s empire! Before Bravo came knocking, Rachel admits the job wasn’t always so glamorous. "I worked 20-something hours a day, seven days a week. I was completely obsessed with fashion and spent all my money flying to Paris to go to couture because that was the dream. I crashed shows, stood in line for Marc Jacobs. Designers were my heroes and my celebrities. It hasn’t really worn off.” Hard work and extreme dedication made Rachel a house hold name and style icon to girl's across the world.

On styling, Rachel shared "A stylist is a behind-the-scenes job. I’m never a star when I’m with a star — ever. Back then, I was very insecure about that. Even now, if you watch me on a red carpet, I’m physically uncomfortable. I can’t strike a good pose to save my life. Fortunately and unfortunately, it’s a part of brand-building. It’s just part of my job."

If you love Rachel as much as I do, then you've undoubtedly been beyond obsessed with Bravo's, The Rachel Zoe Project. Well loves, get ready to go “Bananas,” because The Rachel Zoe Project has been picked up for a fourth season which you can expect to fill your DVR this Fall. According to WWD they're already filming and will be documenting all of her pre and post pregnancy fabulousness. As I reported last week, Rachel's debut fashion line is launching and word on the street is that tons of department stores are purchasing the line and getting ready to roll out the looks this Fall. Thanks to the wonder of reality programing, you can expect the fourth season of her hit show to chronical every breathing second. Who else is looking forward to a year filled with Zoe!
