Inside Rachel Zoe's Closet

Inside Rachel Zoe's Closet

Some of the best dressed stars in Hollywood including Jennifer Garner, Keira Knightley, Demi Moore, Cameron Diaz and Salma Hayek turn to Rachel Zoe to create their stunning style for the hottest events. She's received a lot of criticism lately for being too thin, having clients that are all too thin and Nicole Richie even blasted Rachel for her unhealthy ways. Rachel is telling her side of the story this month in W Magazine. Here's more:

"There was something that came out about me giving horse pills or diet pills from Mexico to my clients," says Zoe. "Anyone who knows me, they laugh. I'm so drug clueless. If I can get through a glass and a half of wine in a night, that's a momentous occasion. I mean, I take Tylenol once in a while, and that's about it."

Though she was born 10 pounds—"the fattest baby you ever saw in your whole life"—the ultrapetite stylist claims that she has been naturally thin for as long as she can remember. "I'm not going to lie. I don't eat like a pig. I don't diet per se, but I'm one of those people that, when I'm under a lot of stress, I have to remind myself to eat," she says. "You're not going to see me eating crap and junk food, because it doesn't make me feel good. But I eat tons of fish and vegetables. And I would never in a billion years tell anyone to lose weight. Ever."

But an especially nasty posting on Richie's MySpace page paints a different picture. The curiously spelled blurb, widely reported to have been written by Richie and aimed at Zoe, read: "What 35 year old raisin face whispers her order of 3 pieces of asparagus for dinner at Chateau everynight, and hides her deathly disorder by pointing a finger at me?"

"That's kind of below the belt," Zoe huffs, when asked about the posting. "I just need to rise above it and let it go. My teenage drama years were a long time ago, and I certainly don't want to relive them. I'm 35, and I just don't want the drama. I'm tired."

Believe what you want she sure is doing something right to land a client list like that. To learn more about a Rachel check out the entire article form W Magazine.

Seriously? Rachel Zoe is 40, based on the information I have seen on line. She looks amazing! She looks like... I don't know... a successful, wonderful, natural woman. I am personally inspired by her, and think she is beautiful regardless of age. She is an amazing talent and an amazing mother. Who is is comfortable in her skin, which increases her beauty ten fold! Thank you Rachel!

I think she looks great, definitely for her age, and everyone should back off. Her clients may be thin, but that's why they fit into designer clothing. That type of clothing isn't made for a size 6, nor does it look good on someone of that size. And as far as her getting her clients to use drugs; only the person can decide if they want to lose weight or participate in drug activity, she doesn't force it down her clients' throats. Everyone is responsible for their own decisions, it's just easier in Hollywood to point a finger at someone else. I think she has awesome style and love her!

she definitely needs botox or filler to fix her very aged face. she must be older than the age she said she is. she looked like a 45 yr old chain smoker. her asistant tayler?? what a ugly stupid bitch!! no personality, nothing but a super difficult bitch thats it. look at her hair.....drug addict look??? way over!!

Wow, I didn't realize you all know her personally! (sarcasm) I don't know these people, so it's a big hard for me to judge them. Not to mention that it's inconsequential. Does it really matter that much to you guys?? I just like clothes, and I am interested in her styling, and couldn't give less of a crap about her freaking weight. Jeez.

Rachel Zoe strikes me as some middle aged person hitting a midlife crisis thirsting for some time in the lime light. That poor woman is obsessed with celebrities and her weight alike. It's too bad. She should just love herself for who she is. As for Nicole Richie, she's always going to be a cool kick ass person in my eyes.

Inside Rachel Zoe's closet. . . Will we find the skeletons of the virgins she sacrificed, so their life-essence could be drained and and used to revive her moments-short-of-mummification, corpse-like skin?

I liked her style in the beginning. I love oversized bags & sunglasses & yea, even leggings. However, when all of her clients started to look exactly alike, it was clear that she was more into herself thatn her clients. I mean, while all these "starlets" pretty much ARE cookie cutter copies of each other, one would think that they'd like to look somewhat different from each other.... Does that make sense? As for the weight & drug issues, there is no doubt in my mind that she encourages her client to drop pounds & since most of them have done it so rapidly, my money in on meth or coke...We all know that LL & Bosworth are cokeheads & that Nicole had a heroin addiction so for her to abuse other drungs is not a stretch...

Her look was very in for awhile, but she needs to mix it up or she'll be yesterdays news. She made her way to LA because she was already over with the NY society scene. Her biggest problem is making herself more well known than her clients. That was the turn off with the society brats. They want to look good, look cutting edge, but don't want people to know WHO created their look.

They are both in denial and deserve each other. I would think that there are other talented stylist out there that a star wouldn't have to put up with this "raisin".

Zoe is 44 years old. "Born in 1962 in New York to art collector parents, Rachel Zoe grew up in one of New Jersey's wealthy neighborhoods." "Rachel Zoe has been criticized for dressing her clients in her likeness, creating mini-me's and dressing them identically? to one another in oversize gowns, they are the so called "Zoe-Bots"?also referred to as "Attack of the Clones". "I'm not trying to make people look like me... But when you spend a lot of time with someone, you rub off on each other. I think I'm kind of an older sister to Lindsay and Nicole." She's said to be responsible for the dramatic (and shocking) weight loss of a number of her biggest clients. While she denies she's pro-ana (anorexia) or pro-mia (bulimia), the fact?that to pull off the Rachel Zoe look almost requires you to be skeletal, makes it easy to see why she's been accused of "single-handedly bringing anorexia back." - LA Times.
