‘First there were designer celebrities, then celebrity designers and now the latest phenomenon: stylists-turned-celebrities-turned-designers. (from wwd.com)
In celebration of Rachel Zoe launching her own line…
“One time at a fashion show, an editor said to me, ‘Did you just come out of, like, thin air? You just appeared and now all I do is see your name and hear this and that, you’re sitting in the front row next to me at all these shows and dadadadada.’ I said, ‘I’ve been working my ass off for 15 years,”. Thin. Air. Literally. ( I hear you sister!)
“I would never consider myself a celebrity. Ever. Yes, I have a TV show and I realize that I am in the public eye because of that. But because I work with celebrities I’ll never think of myself like that. Cameron Diaz is a celebrity, Kate Hudson is a celebrity, Demi Moore is a celebrity - you know what I’m saying?”.
“I go about my everyday life, working like everybody else does, but the things that get difficult is when I’m walking on the street or if I’m in a mall or, like, whatever, and people are, you know, if they come up screaming and taking a picture and shaking and all these things.” Not considering herself a celebrity? I am literally screaming and shaking .
“You will definitely see me in the clothes. Like, you will absolutely see my trademark pieces. I’ll definitely do faux furs and incredible leather jackets and great trousers. ” And bananas. Lots of bananas.
” I want to have an entire lifestyle brand. Everything. No limits. No limits! I hate limits. Give me a limit, I’m going to break it.” Like a credit limit? Me too.
“Oh my God! There are things you do for your business. Trust me: I was never someone who felt the need to reconnect with someone from 20 years ago. I have enough friends right now and I barely have time to see them”… about her Twitter account (over 181,000 followers and counting).
