Rachel Zoe thinks the glamorous, rich teenagers in '90210' are good fashion role models for young girls.
The celebrity stylist - whose has worked with Lindsay Lohan, Nicole Richie and Mischa Barton - insists the teen drama promotes personal style and individual fashion, not lavish lifestyles and designer outfits.
She said: "I think it is fantasy. It's not meant for every 16-year-old girl to run out and buy the new Christian Dior bag. It's meant to say, 'This is what I'd like to look like', and for girls to run out to Topshop or Urban Outfitters and create a similar style for very little money."
Rachel, 37, also hit back at claims she uses her trademark oversized bags and sunglasses to emphasise the small frames of her clients.
She explained to Britain's Hello! magazine: "It's old news and it's ridiculous. I work with Liv Tyler, Jennifer Garner, Demi Moore, Cameron Diaz, all extraordinarily healthy, beautiful women. They would laugh at that suggestion.
"I never think about skinniness when I'm getting dressed or dressing anyone. It's just the style I'm most comfortable with. If people like big glasses and big bags, that's great. It's just an exaggerated style."
