Rachel Zoe is one of Hollywood’s most influential and coveted stylists, a fashion entrepreneur with a designer label, reality show and a seemingly endless list of celebrity clients and friends under her incredibly stylish bohemian-esque belt.
From saving Nicole Richie from her ‘Sweet Life’ self who preferred stripey highlights and bandanas to chic simplicity, to dressing the likes of Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Hudson on the red carpet, check out some of Zoe’s styling works of wonder.
1. Jennifer Garner at the 2004 Acadamy Awards
Jennifer Garner was Rachel Zoe’s first high profile client who launched her into the celebrity spotlight in 2004. Zoe went full out when selecting this vibrant orange, vintage Valentino couture gown for the Dallas Buyers Club star, who has sought Zoe’s expertise ever since.
2. Cameron Diaz at the 2009 Golden Globes
Rachel Zoe is known for her daring yet effortless styling of Hollywood A-listers, and this pink one-shoulder gown chosen for Cameron Diaz is no exception! Diaz stole the show in this Chanel haute Couture gown at the 2009 Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills.
3. Nicole Richie at the 2010 CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund Finalists
Not only is Rachel Zoe Nicole Richie’s celeb stylist, but the fashion forward pair are also best friends! Pictured here in this Missoni zebra stripe inspired maxi dress, Nicole Richie attended the 2010 CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund Finalists awards with Rachel Zoe (in her signature oversized sunglasses) by her side.
4. Keira Knightley at the 2006 Golden Globes
Making it top the top of everyones best dressed list for the 2006 Golden Globes red carpet, British-beauty Keira Knightley dazzled in this strapless white column dress. With a flower and tassles at the waist, Zoe picked this stunning Valentino design just for Keira.
5. Jennifer Lawrence at the 2013 Academy Awards
Rachel Zoe, who was Jennifer Lawrence’s longtime stylist up until the dynamic duo recently parted ways, nailed it with this bridal inspired, white strapless Dior Haute Couture gown with a structured bottom. Attending the 2013 Oscars as a nominee for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook, Lawrence received her first Academy Award in what we’re guessing will be one of many.
6. Kate Hudson at the 2015 Golden Globes
Another celebrity client, another incredible white gown from Rachel Zoe! Zoe selected this phenomenal Versace dress with a plunging neckline and bejeweled cut-outs for Kate Hudson’s red carpet moment at the 72nd Golden Globe Awards last year.
7, 8 and 9. Anne Hathaway!
The always charming Anne Hathaway was a client of Zoe’s for over a decade before their recent (amicable) split. The Hollywood super-stylist selected these distinguished, glamorous looks for Hathaway’s red carpet appearances over the years.
10. Kate Beckinsale at Elton John’s 2008 Academy Awards After Party
Zoe hand-picked this chocolate brown one-shoulder number for the leading lady as she attended Elton John’s coveted, star studded Oscars after party in 2008.
11. Eva Mendes at the 2009 Golden Globes
Rachel Zoe had the forever-stunning Eva Mendes looking like a total goddess in this Christian Dior dress! Zoe paired this classic strapless white design with a peplum overlay and emerald necklace to make Mendes shine just that much more as she walked the red carpet at the 2009 Golden Globes.
12. Keira Knightley at the 2006 Academy Awards
Styling Keira for her second award show of the season, Zoe dressed the Pride and Prejudice star in this custom made, burgundy Vera Wang gown fit with a full fishtail design and one-shoulder detailing.
13. Nicole Richie on ‘The Today Show’ in 2013
Zoe went full casual-chic when styling Nicole Richie for her appearance on ‘The Today Show’ in 2013. Looking glam-yet-laid back, Richie wore this white J Brand vest and trousers combo with an Alexander Wang black crop underneath (and shoes to match!)
