"There is never an excuse not to be glamourous" - Rachel Zoe

Rachel Zoe is one of the stylists that I adore. Her book "Style from A to Zoe" and tv-serie "The Rachel Zoe Project" can give you good examples of her suggestions for fashion and lifestyle. The book (which I can recommend warmly, I have read it already a couple of times) really inspires you to make your everyday more beautiful and stylish. There are no excuses for not living your life fabulously and it doesn't have to mean Hermès bags (which Zoe herself has many, I'm so envious..) or champagne and caviar everyday but special moments to make you feel good about yourself and make your life more luxurious with little things. You can find the joy and glamour for example with pair of beautiful high heels, red lipsick (I prefer the ones from Chanel and Lancôme), precious perfume and high quality classic pieces like little black dress, nice pair of jeans and cashmere sweater.
I don't like everything about her style; not the orange-shaded tan nor the overaccessorizing but I think Zoe has some very nice ideas. She knows how to make an impact. And without a doubt she is professional by dressing celebrities on the red carpets and personal life. Her customers that I like include Salma Hayek, Anne Hathaway and Nicole Richie (they parted for a while but Zoe was the one who helped Nicole to change from trashy to fashionista). Here some of Rachel Zoe's own looks.
