Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

When you step into the pages of this breezy, breathless book, you can almost imagine designer, stylist, and author Zoe (Style A to Zoe, 2008) using Dragon software to record her sentences, paragraphs, and chapters. Her book is truly a reflection of her bicoastal (New York–California) life: specifically, how to dress and act and behave in this era of everyday glamour, which simply means knowing yourself, your comfort level, and what’s the best visual interpretation of you in fashion. In addition to some solid tips (Who knew that it takes 12 hours to thoroughly dry nail polish?), Zoe imparts almost TMI about her personal life and habits: her favorite hotels, iconic inspirations, travel recommendations, even an hour-by-hour day in her life. Beauty tips coexist with some intriguing expert commentary on collecting art, buying vintage stuff (primarily clothing and accessories), and making memorable toasts, among other topics. Pictures and contributors from the fashionable crowd (think both living and deceased, such as Brigitte Bardot, Jackie Onassis, the Rodarte sisters, Farah Fawcett, and others) could make this a go-to keepsake for the young and impressionable. --Barbara Jacobs

Review

"Her success has been so beyond what anyone thought a stylist could achieve..." --The Hollywood Reporter

After getting to know Rachel Zoe on the Bravo TV series, her style career has soared. What I remember from the series is that Rachel seemed constantly frazzled, wearing a feathery jacket that hid her body. I couldn't tell if this was was her on-camera style or if the air conditioning was too high, but certainly she did not look like what I think of as LA chic.

Now some years later, her book presents a different Rachael. There are photos of her at galas wearing glamorous, sleek creations. In setting forth her style guidelines, she presents a lifestyle that is so meticulous and complicated it made me nervous. And yet she seems to be, in print, as being in complete control.

She is talented certainly, but as a petite woman myself, I don't agree that one of her favorite outfits, a long flowing caftan with clunky jewelry is flattering at all. After recently seeing her in such an outfit shopping in LA, she looked tired and matronly. Of course since publication she has had a second child, and trying to be perfect can certainly wear a person out.

Her book is filled with lots of fashion names and ideas, but I found it a bit repetitive. There are lots of cool photos and advice for entertaining, especially if you are a hostess that likes to plan a party weeks in advance, have help and live an elevated lifestyle.

Format: Hardcover
The Rachel Zoe we meet in "Living in Style" is not the over-the-top personality who so fascinated on "The Rachel Zoe Project". She comes across as charming, optimistic and appreciative of her privileged life. "Living in Style" should really be called "How I Live in my Style" because there is very little information most of us can ever use. Best advice: If you have pierced ears always wear something in the holes, even if it's just a pair of studs. Worst advice: Ask a friend whose style you admire if you can tour her closet.

The deal with style is that by nature it's personal. The search for it should always be encouraged, but you can't copy anyone's— especially Rachel's. The fundamental problem I have with Rachel is she is not an original anything— not her style or in her career as a fashion designer. She's like Truman Capote's Holly Golightly, who "isn’t a phony because she’s a real phony. She believes all this crap that she believes."

I wish she had ditched the "advice" aspect of the book and just taken us along on her crazy ride.

HER FIRST BOOK WAS FILLED WITH TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS - RACHEL A TO ZOE . THIS BOOK DOES NOT LIVE UP TO THE FIRST . BORING, AND BASICALLY A DIARY OF HER "BANANA'S " LIFE. INSERT YAWN.

I read a lot of reviews on this... I feel most of this is common sense. It's kinda a biography and style tips wrapped into one. Nice pictures of things I could never afford.

The photos were fantastic. Overall, this is a beautiful book. I wish the writing had been a little stronger and more engaging. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in contemporary design and style. I received, "Living in Style" as a gift and have enjoyed it so much that I plan to give copies to friends for their birthdays.

What can I say, I'm a RZ fan and have been since the beginning. This book is not only about fashion but also about home, decor, beauty and others. The book is beautiful overall and is visually fascinating into a look inside her lifestyle. I'm a lover of all things fashion and decor so this book will live on my coffee table amongst my other favorite books.

This book seemed more like a detailed Pinterest page than a book on style but I like Rachel Zoe and her styling talent is undeniable
