Over the years, Rachel Zoe has styled some of the biggest stars in Hollywood and built a booming fashion empire. Now, as a new mom to son Skyler Morrison Berman, Zoe is learning how to balance it all.
In an interview with Hamptons, Zoe dishes about her mom style, how she and hubby Rodger Berman are handling working together at home and at the office, and the A-list client who’s served as an inspiration to her as a working mother.
On how her style has changed since becoming a mom: “It changed in the sense that instead of taking 15 minutes to get ready, I now have about three minutes, so I find that I have to be a bit more practical. I still want to look good, but I can’t wear clothes that have a lot of zippers and buttons and things that will hurt the baby because I’m holding him all day. I find I’m dressing a lot more simply by day, and then at night, I can kind of do my normal thing a little bit more.”
On her husband, Rodger: “Rodger is amazing. We are loving parenthood, and the fact that we are business partners as well really works, because we take Skyler to the office and he is like our company mascot. He is just an incredible father, and he loves feeding him and bathing him; he is really hands-on.
We have never been happier — but never been more tired, either.”
On the celeb client who inspires her as a parent: “Jennifer Garner, I think the best lesson I have learned from her is how to balance both jobs – as a mother and as someone working in Hollywood – and how to really keep your priorities straight. She is an extraordinary, very grounded person who exemplifies how to be a working mother.”
On her hopes for Skyler’s choice in extracurricular activities: “I have certain sports that I really want him to do. One is surfing, one is polo and the other one is tennis, because I feel like the injury level could be a bit lower – unless, of course, he falls off the horse, God forbid.”
He can always get into the fashion biz!
