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

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.
