Rachel Zoe named Hollywood's most powerful stylist

Rachel Zoe is on this month's cover of The Hollywood Reporter and was named the number one stylist in Hollywood (among 25 others).


Interview higlights:

On fame: “I never wanted to be famous,” Zoe, who grew up in Short Hills, N.J., later declares.

On success: “I’ve never been driven by money; I’m driven by the path,” she says. “And fear. The scariest thing I’ve ever done in my life was start a collection.

On her collection: “My mission was to create wonderfully tailored, luxurious clothes — classic suits, tux jackets and faux fur — where they give off the feeling of luxury without having to pay for it."

On being a stylist: “A stylist is a behind-the-scenes job,” she says. “I’m never a star when I’m with a star — ever. Back then, I was very insecure about that. Even now, if you watch me on a red carpet, I’m physically uncomfortable. I can’t strike a good pose to save my life."

Her purpose: “to merge the worlds of Hollywood and fashion. … Because I felt that there was this huge disconnect,” she says. “I didn’t understand why the most glamorous place in the world wasn’t using the most glamorous clothes.”
