Being the husband of über-stylist celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe definitely has its perks — worldwide travel, attending designer fashion shows, starring on a reality show — but that doesn’t mean Rodger Berman forgets where he stands.
“Nothing makes your station in life more clear than when a stranger hands you a camera while he poses with your wife,” he confesses in the February issue of Harper’s Bazaar.
“[I] waltz confidently into fashion shows with Rachel by my side, [but] the VIP treatment usually stops there. Any delusions of grandeur are interrupted by the words ‘Excuse me, sir, you’re in my seat.’”
Despite those constant reminders, the investment banker hasn’t let it sour his appreciation for all things fashion.
“Thanks to Rachel I can’t leave the house without worrying about whether or not my clothes match. And that’s fine by me,” reveals Berman.
“My favorite [designers] are Michael Kors, Diane von Furstenberg, and Oscar de la Renta because they always offer up beautiful clothes that I can actually imagine Rachel and her clients wearing.”
“It’s our greatest adventure yet — and I won’t be surprised if our baby has Chanel diapers, Missoni blankets, and an Hermès bassinet,” he joked.
“People say he or she is going to be the most fashionable baby ever. And I believe them.”
