Not that there was any doubt in our minds about Rachel Zoe's power in Hollywood, but the Hollywood Reporter has just made it official. For its latest issue, the mag has ranked the top 25 most powerful stylists in Hollywood. Rachel is number one, of course. She's also featured on the cover in all her pregnant glory, wearing a black-and-gold sequined zebra print dress.
The accompanying article chronicles Zoe's rise to fame, starting as a fashion assistant making $18,000 a year for the now defunct YM magazine. At 25 she decided to go solo and the rest was history. Now, Rachel commands around $10,000 per job and is the queen of a growing fashion empire. But does she feel powerful? She says:
No. Oprah is power — she is everything. Martha, she can make a house out of a piece of paper. I have incredible respect for women like that because it’s not easy. People fight you every step of the way — they pull you down as soon as you get up. And the reality is, it’s harder for women. It’s like if a girl has fooled around with a lot of guys, she’s a slut. But if guys do it, they’re cool.
