Rachel Zoe: Why I Won't Style Snooki

Has impending motherhood softened the famously razor-sharp Rachel Zoe? Not quite! The stylist to the stars tells The Hollywood Reporter she’d never style Jersey Shore wild child Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi. Give her a break, though: “I don’t have time!” she says. “She’s so out there right now, that’s like a full-time job. It’s nothing against Snooki.” So what does Zoe’s packed schedule, which includes filming The Rachel Zoe Project and lining up eight Oscar dresses for Anne Hathaway, net her a year? The magazine estimates that between her $10,000-per-job fee and estimated $50,000 from Bravo per episode, plus her QVC line and other endeavors, the star stands to clear $20 million. Not bad for a stylist who started out making $18,000 a year. “I worked 20-something hours a day, seven days a week,” Zoe says. “I … spent all my money flying to Paris to go to couture because that was the dream. I crashed shows. Designers were my heroes and my celebrities. It hasn’t really worn off.” –Alex Apatoff
