    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.

    Click through to see the Rachel Zoe resort '12 collection, and exclusive pics and quotes from the designer. Bananas!

And, by that yardstick, Honor Fraser Gallery's bash for its newest exhibition was a major win. New York-based artist KAWS hosted the event himself — the very first artist-led meetup in L.A. (and a huge score for read
