Something that's very painful for me is when people wear pants that are too short.
— Rachel Zoe
My basics are black, white, or neutral, and I'll wear a ton of jewelry or carry a brightly colored bag.
I'm not a tough boss in that I don't raise my voice, I don't freak out, and I don't have a temper most of the time.
I do love being on television and in peoples' homes. I'm not an actor, so there is a connection that's real.
You can't get dressed without good hair.
I have lost my short-term memory - I'm just getting blonder by the day.
I think, in spring, we don't want to wear makeup, we don't want to wear a ton of clothes, we just want everything to be easier.
It's a constant challenge trying to find balance between styling, designing and being a mom.
The constant in all the businesses I've become a part of is taking what I do and making it real for everyone. I believe fantasy and dreaming can be made a reality. You don't have to be rich. You don't have to be a VIP.
All of my clients have athletic or curvy, healthy bodies.
I just fell into the job as a fashion editor at a teen magazine. I was there for two years, and I left there as a senior fashion editor at the age of 25.
I don't come from a family of slackers, but I do come from a family of doers.
I'm a Virgo and I'm more - I don't want to say 'negative' - but I'm the girl who thinks no one's coming to my birthday party, no one's buying my clothes, no one's reading my book, no one's watching my show - that's just how I think.
As great as it is, 'Vogue' won't change a designer's business. But if an unknown brand is worn by a certain person in a tabloid, it will be the biggest designer within a week.
I think, as a working mom, I have to dress myself differently now. I used to wear very kind of precious clothes. Now I wear more black.
I love Fall Fashion Week because it means lots of layering, long sweaters and vintage coats.
I believe fantasy and dreaming can be made a reality. You don't have to be rich. You don't have to be a VIP.
You have to interpret what's hot to make it work on yourself. If tweed suits are in, but you're not a suit kind of girl, wear the jacket with jeans and a pair of Converses.
My home has to feel airy and bright with natural light. I don't switch on lamps until it is literally black outside.
My first job, I worked at 'YM' and I had an extremely tough boss who made me cry every single day. But what I took away from that was how I would never be.
I don't deal in pretentious kids' parties.
Hair is a huge part of who I am and what I obsess over - I've had long hair my entire life.
If my client calls me and says, 'I'm going to a friend's premiere,' I'll say, 'Come over and let's do something cute.' And I won't bill them for that.
The worst thing you could ever get is people who think they know everything.
Tom Ford does everything perfect.
It's hard for me to take care of myself, let's put it that way. I am my last priority.
I think what you wear really does need to reflect what your own personal style is.
Girls, to me, growing up were very, very petty and didn't want me to succeed and didn't want the best for me.
My dad is an unbelievable entrepreneur who balanced his life as a father and a president of two very successful companies.
I keep saying I'm going to cut back on styling, but it's hard to give up.
I think in spring, we don't want to wear makeup, we don't want to wear a ton of clothes, we just want everything to be easier.
I always carry a Tom Ford lipstick and Tachta face blotters to get me through the day.
Fall 2013 was inspired by the 1970s equestrian lifestyle. I wanted to incorporate the moody and romantic - intricate baroque detailing and classic menswear elements - with something tougher and edgier in a nod to London's rock n' roll underground.
I always say that I don't like it when people follow trends too much, just because it is on the runway. I think what you wear really does need to reflect what your own personal style is.
I started styling people when I was just eight years old, without even knowing what a stylist was.
Everyone wants to be a stylist. If you know that's your calling, then you need to intern as much a humanly possible. You need to go to fashion school if you can.
People tell you everything changes when you have a kid, but what nobody says is you don't mind.
All those things they say about a baby changing your perspective - it does!
I'm someone that never likes to overpower the girls in hair and makeup.
I think people should look cute all the time.
The thing that I really look for in people is enthusiasm and excitement and, not to sound really sappy, that fire in their eyes.
I would do fragrance. I'm a fragrance fanatic.
I'm a textbook definition of that perfectionist girl who has huge expectations of herself.
Celebrities are just like us and like any of your friends. I love working with people.
I try to compartmentalize as much as possible, and I have the most amazing team in the world. They really set up my time in a way that is completely efficient all the time.
I will always think of myself as that girl that is 22 starting and really excited about everything and wanting to be amazing at everything. I always wanted to be the best stylist. That was it.
No one wants to stay in the tabloids. But it's actually not a terrible place to start.
I wear things that kind of can look good for extended periods of time - fabrics that don't wrinkle, things that don't stain very easily.
I am a child of the '70s, so I love classic rock - Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Van Morrison, and I also love Coldplay.
On one hand I am this weird androgynous tomboy where I'm strangely low maintenance and have a five-minute makeup regimen. On the other I'm obsessed with all things beauty, from skin care to makeup.
