Rachel Zoe is parlaying her passion for fabulous footwear and friends into a sexy shoe collaboration with Brian Atwood: “Brian’s been one of my best friends for fifteen years!” she told us at last night’s Dinner With a Designer Celebrating Brian Atwood, hosted by InStyle and the CFDA. “We met dancing on a table in Paris when we were both starting out in our careers.” Zoe and Atwood designed an over-the-knee platform boot with chain detail. The black and suede boot ($2,915) hits stores this June and you can expect the boot to be a staple on the red carpet this fall. “Every single one of my clients wear Brian Atwood. He makes the most beautiful shoes. I am his number one cheerleader!”
