yes, THE Rachel Zoe. This is a lady that really does it all – mother of all stylists, and does not only have one of the best TV shows, she has the daily Zoe report and has built her global brand. Luckily for us in the UAE, Saks was the first to stock the brand which is super exciting. I recently spoke to Rachel about her line, summer, fashion blogs, Dubai and L.A. – Enjoy!

Head over to Saks Fifth Avenue in Dubai to shop the Rachel Zoe Collection


As a stylist, what do you think lacked in the market?

Well-tailored and affordable women’s suiting – the perfect tux pant and jacket is such a necessity for every woman!


Which of your pieces will you be wearing this s/s’12?

It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with sequins, so the ivory sequin dolman will be one of this season’s essentials.


Do you read fashion blogs?

Yes, definitely!  I am constantly on so I can stay up to date on all the shows.  And I am obsessed with Jak and Jil’s Tommy Ton – his photos are insane.


What are your views on Fashion Blogging?

I think fashion blogging is great!  It’s the perfect place to express personal style.  I especially love it because anyone and everyone can have their own voice.


Myfashdiary is based between London and Dubai, and your collection is stocked at Saks in Dubai! Have you ever been – any plans?

I’ve actually never been, but it’s definitely on my list of places to go!


What are 3 of your favorite places in L.A. and why?

There are so many great spots in LA, some of my favorite include Soho House because their rooftop garden is insane, so beautiful.  Also, the Beverly Hills Hotel is like my second home.  It’s just up the street from my house, and the Polo Lounge epitomizes luxurious Los Angeles.  And the Tower Bar at the Sunset Tower Hotel is a staple – it’s the definition of old Hollywood glamour, and I love that!
