To quote our own catchphrase, and the mega-stylist herself, Rachel Zoe is everything. Back in February, her first foray into design, a collection inspired by Parisian elegance and London street style, was die-worthy, and her follow-up for spring '12 was on-trend, heavy on prints and glamour.Now, for resort '12, RZ is bringing back the '60s and '70s in a major way — think Bianca Jagger in St. Barths (not coincidentally, it's Zoe's perfect vacay spot). Cocktail dresses, sharp blazers, flowy skirts, and flared jeans are on-point for your next jaunt just north of the equator, and, wallflowers beware, there's more color here than you'd find in a bag of Tropical Starburst. To get us in the mood for our next browse on Expedia, we got Rachel to spill the beans on the whole range, plus (and this a big plus) all the dish on her vacation staples, warm-weather styling tips, and, of course, what to pack — and just how much. Yes, we discussed those 11 bags she brought to Paris Fashion Week. Oh, and a jewelry collection? She lets us in on that, too.
