Women all over the globe dropped to their knees and cried out at their computer screens as the Huffington Post published photographs of Rachel Zoe’s shoe closet in Los Angeles. No doubt her role as stylist for Piperlime in the US has given her countless pairs of pads but nothing could have prepared us for what flashed upon our screens. This makes “Sex and the City” look like child’s play!
I am guessing there are roughly 500 shoes in the picture. If you take in consideration that the average price of each pair of shoes is US$500…she has the cost of a house sitting in her living room – $250,000! Of course when you are the stylist for Hollywood’s elite (including Anne Hathaway, Debra Messing, Cameron Diaz and Eva Mendes) you have to have countless pairs of stilettos at the ready.
Although Rachel Zoe is most famed for her role in the “Size Zero” phenomenon, it is too seldom that she is recognized as one of the great trendsetters of our time. If you see something on the red carpet that you like, it’s most likely been put together by this diva. If you see someone looking like a disaster…it’s most likely they are on the waiting list for Rachel’s styling expertise.
Season 2 of The Rachel Zoe Project premieres Monday August 24th at 10 p.m. EST on Bravo (UK & Europe TBC).
