5. Rachel Zoe became one of the most famous faces in fashion. This is what her life looks like now.

Look at photographs of the front row in any top-tier fashion show in the noughties, and it’s likely Rachel Zoe will be tucked among it. She’ll be the one in the oversized sunglasses, large bangles on her wrists, evoking Jagger-esque 70s glamour.

Look at photographs of any major Hollywood event from around the same time, and it’s likely her clients will be on the red carpet. (Think: Cameron Diaz, Demi Moore, Liv Tyler, Kiera Knightley, Anne Hathaway.)
