Rachel Zoe Won’t Style Snooki For Any Amount Of Money
After her first job as a fashion assistant in New York at the now-defunct YM magazine (her salary: $18,000), Zoe went freelance at 25 and began styling for the likes of Britney Spears and Backstreet Boys from a one-bedroom West Village apartment. “I worked 20-something hours a day, seven days a week,” Zoe says. “I was completely obsessed with fashion and spent all my money flying to Paris to go to couture because that was the dream. I crashed shows, stood in line for Marc Jacobs.”
Zoe, an admitted hippie who walked down the aisle to the Grateful Dead’s “Truckin’,” swears she’s never touched a drug in her life. As for the 30 Dead shows she attended (compared with Berman’s 91), she was no doubt the only girl at Washington’s RFK Stadium wearing heeled wedges under her kaftan — and under the influence of nothing more than a wine cooler.
tyling celebrities and a few private clients (says Zoe, “Sometimes princesses will fly in for three days from Dubai or Russia or London — that’s always fun”) remains RZI’s bread and butter, but she’s not looking to expand the roster anytime soon. “That’s not to say I wouldn’t take on new clients,” Zoe says, “if I was really excited about someone and if it was the right fit.” And if that person were, say, Snooki waving a $10,000 fee? “I don’t have time,” coos Zoe, who says she’s never seen an episode of Jersey Shore. “No really, because she’s so out there right now, that’s like a full-time job. It’s nothing against Snooki.”
She is just to DIE for. I <3 her and her crazy butt.
Can I PLEASE have her closet now?
