Rachel Zoe: Handbag Designer

What do you do when you’re a stylist known for launching an entire generation of anorexic starlets with near identical fashion senses? Well if you’re in the business of making money – as most high priced stylists are – then you start designing your own goods. Rachel Zoe, the face behind the outfits of Lindsay Lohan, Mischa Barton, and Nicole Richie – has collaborated with handbag designer Judith Leiber on two bags for this upcoming fall. One’s a clutch called “Cleopatra” and the other is a hobo bag called “Medusa”. Despite the names, the bags don’t look too different or special from the myriad number of other handbag offerings this season. But Rachel Zoe does have something other designers don’t- an impressive bevy of celebs willing to parade her goods on the red carpet. Lindsay, Mischa, and Nicole have all already toted them at some point or other.
