Rachel Roy's Chic Transformation (PHOTOS)

Rachel Roy makes loads of other women look beautiful in her designs -- hello, Michelle Obama! -- but she's certainly no slouch herself in the style department.

Roy started out in the hip-hop world as an intern at Rocawear, where she met her husband, mogul Damon Dash (they're now divorced). In 2005, she launched her eponymous line and transformed into a fashion girl about town, boasting a cadre of high-profile friends (including current Macy's collaborator and Knicks power forward Amar'e Stoudemire) and a sophisticated wardrobe of bright separates and elegant dresses.

Take a look at one of the chicest designers we know.
