Boho Teenager Rachel Zoe

Rachel Zoe created her iconic vintage boho style as a poor teenager.

The Hollywood stylist - who has helped stars such as Mischa Barton, Nicole Richie and Keira Knightley develop their chic wardrobes - was forced to come up with affordable fashion ideas while she was broke.

She said: "As soon as I was old enough to shop I fell in love with vintage. When I was younger, as a teenager, I used to ask myself how I could get this glamour for, like, not thousands and thousands of dollars.

"Ultimately, that answer kept coming back up as vintage. How could I get those vintage fur coats, that peasant dress or kaftan. That's when I fell in love with vintage. For me, it became the way that I could get that unique piece that no one else could have."

Although current trends are returning to 80s powersuits and shoulder pads, the 37-year-old stylist - who is well known for her casual, retro outfit choices and her Rachel Zoe accessories line - will never rethink her image.

She explained to website TVscoop: "Who are my style icons? I think it has always been the icons from the 60s and 70s. You know, Twiggy, Edie Sedgwick, Penelope Tree. They were all so glamorous in such an effortless way. With all the tassled hair and sequins and Yves Saint Laurent - I just became obsessed. Fashion is moving into the 80s. Me? I'm staying in the 60s!"

Rachel - whose book 'Style A to Zoe: The Art of Fashion, Beauty and Everything Glamour' was an instant best seller - also has her own reality TV show, 'The Rachel Zoe Project'.

She said: "It's hard every single day. I find it a constant struggle to balance building the brand to where I want it to be and maintaining my clients to keep styling."
