Rachel Zoe’s…Styling for Dollars!

It all began with a lovely write-up in the Hollywood Reporter about Rachel Zoe. The article chronicles Rachel’s rise to styling fame in Hollywood. Through the years Mrs. Zoe’s client list has expanded as well as her styling fees and (here is where the article takes a bit of a detour)  when it mentions the recent “exorbitant fees” charged by the Zoester, for dressing longtime client and Oscar Host Anne Hathaway. The article states that Ms. Zoe, charges a whopping $10,000.00 per outfit (And I don’t think that includes hair and make-up). If my calculations are correct, then Anne Hathaway having made 7 changes during the Oscars, plus one red carpet outfit to get in the front door racked up a cool $80,000.00  bill.(Please don’t be in awe by my amazing math skills in adding that bill up) or the fees by Mrs. Zoe, because at the same time, someone???? surfaced a recent Forbes article on what the Big Wigs in Fashion bring in per year…

  • The head of Dior’s parent company, Bernard Arnault of Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy, is still France’s richest man and the fourth-richest person in the world, according to Forbes‘ annual rich list. Arnault’s personal fortune is some $41 billion.
  • Amancio Ortega, the recently retired founder of Zara, came 7th with $31 billion.
  •  H&M’s Stefan Persson was 13th with $24.5 billion.
  • François Pinault, who heads the luxury group PPR (which owns Gucci, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent and Stella McCartney, among others) was 67th with $11.5 billion.
  •  Philip Green (and his wife, the legal Monaco resident Cristina, in whose name Topshop is technically held for tax reasons) came 132nd.
  • Giorgio Armani, who came 136th. [Forbes]

***From the numbers stated above it seems that our darling Rachel Zoe is right on track!

Happy Styling!
