Fashion: So you wanna look like a celeb

Not just a celeb, but a celeb in New York, possibly who sidelines as a stylist like my mother Rachel Zoe. Obviously I've been watching too much of her and The Kardashians (got my eyes on Kim) while drinking Coke Zero. Feels like a very bad vice ain't it?

But here's my personal lowdown on how to put together a celebrity look.

1. Quality - there are a sea of clothes out there but quality stands out. Quality in terms of fabric, measurements, and design. Surely you've experienced finding a style that stands out but doesn't fit well. Check the tag, you're right - you get what you pay for.

There's a reason why branded clothes are expensive and that includes quality checks and hours spent to get the right fit per size.

Above are some bcbg pieces I found on who retails designer and branded clothes online. They also have bcbg shoes like below:

2. Stand out on heels and platforms - rarely do I find celebs wearing flats, indeed they need to literally stand out and tall in a sea of normal human beings. Boots are natural love for me but closed shoes are also flexible and more comfortable than open toe stilettos/platforms.

3. Accessorize with drama - huge Jackie O shades, glasses, statement necklaces
and cocktail rings are never out of fashion. Clothes are just clothes until you personalize them with your own jewelry.

Turquoise is tricky to wear but adds a classic/goddess effect everytime. Gold links add weight to light fabric and anything with pearls is a great contrast to dark pieces.

Shop for these pieces at, they have international shipping so checkout the FAQs depending on which country you are in. DHL and UPS are their shipping options, superb :)
