Rachel Zoe raises money for Ovarian Cancer research

The Rachel Zoe Project, the Bravo channel’s reality series about the celebrity stylist, included a spot on Rachel’s support of ovarian cancer.

Rachel, who lost a close family friend to the disease, decided to use her fashion connections to help bring awareness to the disease that, until recently, no one talked about.

Rachel, who made a name for herself styling A-list stars, decided that it was time to start talking. One night this spring, on famed Melrose Avenue in LA, she threw a charity event that included the resale of 200 of her favorite accessories from her personal closet for the benefit of the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance.

The evening was surreal. Most of the attendees, very young and impossibly thin, crowded the small shop that hosted the glittery evening. Jewels were strewn about as though a bomb had gone off in Harry Winston’s window, Judith Leiber bags were strategically tossed about, and haute couture belts and jackets decorated every inch of precious space in the intimate venue. One certainly felt that we were in someone’s closet.

Rachel and her entourage arrived and the place buzzed with excitement as she did interviews on why she chose ovarian cancer.
