Super-stylist Rachel Zoe has been married to husband Rodger Berman since 1998 and this year, they will welcome their first child. Rodger wrote a short article for HarpersBazaar.com on what it is like being married to a fashion fanatic.
On how they met: “I met Rachel in the summer of 1991. She was 19, and I was 22. She was a restaurant hostess, and I was working as a waiter in Washington, D.C., where we both attended college. I vividly remember the first time I saw her, wearing a tight black minidress, high-heeled pumps, stick-straight hair, and big red lips covered in M.A.C. Chili lipstick (her trademark). She was the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen. I quickly learned that she also had more clothes than any woman I had ever seen. I often wondered if she’d ever do an outfit change mid-date.”
On their wedding day: “Seven years later, we were standing at the altar. Rachel wore a custom Isaac Mizrahi dress—a white replica of his red version worn by Amber Valletta on a magazine cover. Who knew a bride could walk down the aisle so gracefully in six-inch heels?”
On their newest venture: “We are expecting our first child, who will lead us on our greatest adventure yet—and I won’t be surprised if our baby has Chanel diapers, Missoni blankets, and an Hermès bassinet. People say he or she is going to be the most fashionable baby ever. And I believe them. Look at me! I have no predisposition to fashion, but thanks to Rachel I can’t leave the house without worrying about whether or not my clothes match.”
