  • Rachel Zoe Leads the Hollywood Reporter Top Hollywood Stylist List


    From stylist to mega brand

    “A stylist is a behind-the-scenes job,” Rachel Zoe says in the new issue Hollywood Reporter that names her the #1 stylist and has her as its cover girl that hits the stands tomorrow. “I’m never a star when I’m with a star — ever.

    HR tells of Zoe’s amazing ascent from stylist to star to a ground-breaking brand name, and she certainly has done that brilliantly.

    Does Rachel Zoe feel feel the breathe of her style power? “No,” she is quoted in the article. “Oprah is power — she is everything. Martha, she can make a house out of a piece of paper. I have incredible respect for women like that because it’s not easy. People fight you every step of the way — they pull you down as soon as you get up. And the reality is, it’s harder for women. It’s like if a girl has fooled around with a lot of guys, she’s a slut. But if guys do it, they’re cool.”

    After 15 years as a New York fashion stylist myself, I had no regrets when I put my prop kit on a back shelf to explore other opportunities, start my family and launch way back in 1999. Frankly at this point in my life, I’d rather answer your questions and share stylist tips and tricks tips than style a model on a photoshoot or dress a star on a regular basis, but absolutely have the utmost respect for working stylists who make a very tough job look positively glam on on the other side of the scrim.

    It’s an interesting list with some names that many outside of the industry have never heard of, some new faces, some oldies but very vital goodies, and few surprises. Not to mention a few names that are visibly missing but pushing as hard as they can.
