When I saw Rachel Roy's Spring '09 presentation last month, it was love. She crafts delectable, exotic clothes. It wasn't surprising, then, that she was very sweet when we met her at the opening of Chanel's Mobile Art Pavilion. She was modeling her clothes — not Chanel — head-to-toe, except for her stockings. Her toes must have been freezing, but her white banded shoes made a fresh statement. Her little black crystal bag added some baby bling. Overall, a very fun look. Here are a couple Rachel tidbits . . .
What is your favorite city to shop in?
"Ooh, good question! You know what? I like shopping in little, small random towns. Vintage. Because they aren’t picked over by designers like New York is. And that’s the truth. When I go and visit my grandmother and other relatives I like to do vintage there and I usually find amazing things."
Whose style do you admire?
"Lauren Davis. And other women that aren’t afraid to dress how they want as opposed to ending up on someone’s best dressed. I think usually they end up looking chic."
