When it was announced that Rachel Zoe was going to have a child, it went without saying that everyone knew this child would be living the fashion high life right from the womb. When your mother is a fashion goddess and dresses celebs such as Nicole Richie, Kate Hudson, and Cameron Diaz, it’s expected that your wardrobe would bring even Tim Gunn to tears of jealousy. That being said, there is such a thing as going overboard — even by Hollywood’s standards. When it comes to dressing her four-month-old son, Skyler, Zoe is sparing no expense.
During a Wednesday appearance on Nightline, 39-year-old stylist took ABC’s Juju Chang on a tour of her son’s walk-in closet. The kid can’t even crawl yet and he’s got a walk-in closet….life is not fair. Baby Skyler is already the proud owner of a $1,160 Gucci bomber jacket along with a shoe collection worth $3,700, which includes a $150 pair of Tod’s loafers. The kid also uses a $1,400 Hermes blanket to catch his spit up while sleeping in his $914 crib. Other pricey items in the nursery include a giant stuffed giraffe ($163), a silver piggy bank ($1,355) and $78,000 worth of designer clothing, all totally up to a staggering $87,000. Again, I feel compelled to remind you that this child is 4 months old.
Even with her son’s vastly growing wardrobe, Zoe comments that boys fashion is disappointing compared to girls fashion and says “Let me tell you there’s going to be a lot of boys clothes in my line.” I can’t even fathom how many clothes this boy is going to go through by the time he reaches the age of 5. Rachel may claim that her views on life have changed with the birth of her child, but fashion is still playing an excessive role in her life. She’s projecting one obsession on a new-born obsession.
