One source claims the 18-year-old was actually bullied for being there -- apparently not everyone thought she earned the right to walk the shows!
The insider spilled:
When one door closes, another totally opens, right?!
“It is really taking things to the next level in terms of elevating the brand of ShoeDazzle and some of the other offerings we are going to be having soon. I don’t think there is anybody else in the world who understands trend as well as Rachel. I think we are bringing in the very best, and I think that elevates the style aspect of ShoeDazzle.”
In fact, Lee surveyed 50,000 customers, asking them whose style advice they'd be most perceptive to, and Rachel was numero uno on the list!
For her part, the 41-year-old stylist admitted that Shoedazzle's affordability was one of the reasons she was so eager to work with the company, saying:
"We really live by the same mantra that everybody can have style and be on trend, take chances and luxury can be affordable. You don’t have to have massive budgets to look great. Affordable luxury and fashion is something I wish I had more of when I was coming up in this business and just craving style, and all I really had were thrift shops.”
With Rachel's experience and clout and Shoedazzle's cute shoes, we bet this partnership will be MAJOR!
