Rodger Berman Remembers How He Met Rachel Zoe, Talks 'Tranny-Heeled Shoes' (PHOTOS)

Rodger Berman wrote a short article for Harper's Bazaar about being "Married To Fashion" a.k.a. stylist Rachel Zoe. Berman remembers:

I met Rachel in the summer of 1991. She was 19, and I was 22. She was a restaurant hostess, and I was working as a waiter in Washington, D.C., where we both attended college. I vividly remember the first time I saw her, wearing a tight black minidress, high-heeled pumps, stick-straight hair, and big red lips covered in M.A.C. Chili lipstick (her trademark). She was the most beautiful woman I'd ever seen. I quickly learned that she also had more clothes than any woman I had ever seen. I often wondered if she'd ever do an outfit change mid-date.

Make no mistake about it -- the future Zoe-Berman spawn will be the best-dressed baby ever. Rodger writes, "Look at me! I have no predisposition to fashion, but thanks to Rachel I can't leave the house without worrying about whether or not my clothes match."

But the man is totally over runway shows, although he thinks Fashion Week "can evoke a certain sense of accomplishment."

Have you ever felt proud for walking through your hotel room without tripping, because there are enough tranny-heeled shoes on the floor to fill a transgender shoe store? Have you ever just left your hotel door open because it's easier than getting up each time a package, flowers, or a gift arrives? Has your wife ever scoured four racks of clothing she had flown in for Fashion Week and declared, "I have nothing to wear"? I can say yes to all.

But Rodger did admit he loves it all! Read the rest at Harper's Bazaar. And for more on Zoe, check out her new fashion line.
