Rachel Zoe’s Stylin’ Eyes and Baby News

28 Mar

Stylist to the stars, Rachel Zoe, didn’t let being pregnant stand in her way of attending lavish events, covering magazines or dressing the rich and famous. In fact, the fashion guru hid her baby bump so discretely that it was almost impossible to tell she had a bun in the oven. Maybe Rachel will slow down a bit to enjoy her new bundle of joy—she gave birth to son Skylar Morrison Berman earlier last week.

Whether or not the fashionista turned reality star takes a break from her hectic styling schedule, it’s safe to say that her baby boy will most likely be the trendiest munchkin on the block.

Check out Rachel rockin’ some of our favorite eyewear trends below:

Kenny Chesney’s Limited Edition Costas come in five styles—ranging from sporty wraparounds to feminine squares—that feature unique hand drawn artwork etched inside of the frame, along with Kenny’s signature. Proceeds from the shades will go to Coastal Conservation Association to help with their efforts to protect and restore our oceans.
