Letter From Rachel Zoe: July 2014

Julien Hekimian

July is your cue to let summer take over your wardrobe, weekend plans and more. Switch out your handbag for something bold and bright, embrace beachy hair and no-makeup makeup and give the barely-there dresses you’ve been saving their chance to be seen. From Fourth of July festivities and rooftop barbecues to weekends beachside, there will be no shortage of excuses to put on something that makes you feel amazing! And that’s just the start of wardrobe motivation for the month: there are also the Paris haute couture shows, happening July 7th through the 11th.

My very first trip to the couture shows was over a decade ago (I saved up every dollar and vacation day to attend), and the event has been one of my favorite fashion moments of the year ever since. I hold my breath to see what Chanel, Giambattista Valli and Valentino will show. I can’t wait to share my favorite looks with you right here on The Zoe Report. The beauty of the digital world we live in today is that you can literally experience the shows no matter where you are.

July is truly the time to embrace summer for all of its beauty and host get-togethers with friends and family as often as possible! Don’t worry about being too formal—host a casual bonfire on the beach, wrapped up in a sarong on a Moroccan blanket, or throw a bohemian-inspired gathering in your backyard and toast marshmallows. Want to host a glamorous gathering without breaking your budget? We will show you some great ways to DIY your décor for every type of party.

The heat of summer can be a tricky time in the glam department (aka hair and makeup), so there’s no better time to share our brand new look for TZR Beauty. The answer to all your get-pretty prayers, my team and I will unveil a maj new layout and fresh stories this month, including everything from 10-minute makeup ideas to tips from the biggest talent in the business. You must check it out.

XO, Rachel Zoe
