We had to do a double, no scrap that, triple take when we stumbled upon this picture of Rachel Zoe. We couldn’t believe our eyes — is this the queen of boho, flares, wooden bangles and enormous tote bags? The answer, fash fans, is yes.
LA’s queen bee stylist is hardly recognisable in the shoot for LOVE magazine — but doesn't she look fab? Rachel has gone True-Blood-meets-Twilight-esque with this full-on vampire get-up. Fangs, check. Pale complection, check. Deathly stare, check. Gothic lacy ensemble? CHECK CHECK CHECK!
Rachel’s team revealed the transformation when they tweeted about her shoot: "Rachel is a real life vampire in the latest issue of @THELOVEMAGAZINE...we're literally dying!” We imagine Zoe’s favourite phrase “I Die” got some serious mileage that day...
Of course, the stylist-turned-designer has made no secret of her fondness for all things vampy, particularly 'The Twilight Saga'. In a recent interview with Team Twilight, she gushed about the tale's "purest form of romance" and confessed her crush on a certain Robert Pattinson. And can you believe RZ almost called her son Cullen in honour of the saga's vegetarian vamps? Uh-huh.
Naturally, Rachel looks absolutely gorgeous as a vampire, draped in a virginal white lace sheath for the LOVE shoot. Yes, she looks a wee bit pasty, but gorgeous none the less. In fact, we haven’t been this excited about a shoot starring La Zoe since that hilarious-yet-chic spread last year. You'll remember the shoot rounded up all of Rachel’s BFFs (that’s Best Fashion Friends, natch) and showed them all with the style maven in the theme of her favourite tagline “I Die”. Yep, we’ve got to hand it to Rachel; she has a wicked sense of humour!
