NEW YORK -- Los Angeles-based celebrity stylist, reality TV star and designer Rachel Zoe took a break from awards show dressing (Oscar nominee
The inspiration: 1970s equestrian style, romantic men's wear, baroque details and a nod to the London rock 'n' roll underground, according to the show notes.
The look: Refined but cozy, from the collarless camel coat, leather shell and jodphur pants that opened the show, to the cream, oversized, cable knit sweater worn over caramel leather pants that came out later. There were a lot of covetable items, including a black, pony hair front sweat shirt I wanted to pluck right off the runway. (Sweat shirts are shaping up to be a must-have item for fall). And living in L.A., Zoe has a firm grasp on relaxed glam for evening, which translated into a pair of long, matte gold sequin shorts, worn with a black trench jacket with leather sleeves.
The verdict: More tailored and grown up than it has been in the past. Less about styling a story or look, and more about pieces that would fit seamlessly into a woman's wardrobe.
