She may have dressed the 'who's who' of Hollywood, but fashion force Rachel Zoe thinks looking good can only get a person so far.

The 43-year-old blond is one of fashion's most sought-after stylists and has also dipped her toes into designing.

She has dressed dozens of big names and is still the go-to person for red carpet outfits, but Rachel feels her approach is more relaxed now.

“When I started, I felt that actors should look good on their own downtime as well because of the paparazzi following them all the time. In the beginning I don’t think the industry or the studios saw it like that. Image is important – obviously it will only get you so far, because talent is going to keep you there and take you where you want to be in your career," she explained to vogue.com.au.

"Celebrities and supermodels are endorsing so many brands; it’s very much a part of the business and a huge part of the culture. You have to embrace it.”

One of her famous clients is Jennifer Lawrence. For the red carpet, the actress often wears Dior, which she is the face of. Rachel is always thrilled to join forces with the 24-year-old.

“That relationship started when Raf [Simons] came to Dior. I had worked with Dior for many, many years with John Galliano. Jennifer is absolutely one of the most extraordinary women I’ve ever met," Rachel gushed.

"She’s so young, but let me tell you, she’s an old soul and a beautiful spirit and she’s obviously an extraordinary talent and we have so much fun working together. We had a fitting right before I left [for Sydney]. She’s so fun to dress, she loves fashion. It’s always great when you end up working with a client that is talented but also just is very smart, savvy and very down to earth.”
