Rachel Zoe Gives Birth to Son Kaius Jagger!

Monday, December 23rd, 2013

It’s official: Skyler Berman has a baby brother! Stylist to the stars and designer extraordinaire Rachel Zoe and hubby Rodger are now the proud parents of two adorable boys. Rachel announced the birth of Kaius Jagger Berman, aka Kai, on her Twitter feed, saying: “So excited to welcome our baby boy into the world…he’s 7 lbs 12 oz., beautiful, healthy and we couldn’t be happier!”

I don’t know about you, but I love the names they’ve picked out for both of their sons. They’re different enough to be special, but not so out there that they’re just cra-cra. And for those paying attention, it’s no surprise the major music fans went with Jagger (as in the Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger) as Kai’s middle name. Skyler’s middle name is Morrison after Doors’ singer Jim Morrison!

So far, the fashionista has been successful juggling styling, designing, running her fashion empire and being a devoted wife and mom—while pregnant. Now she baby Kai is here, she has one more thing (well, person) to throw into the mix. Rachel confessed during her pregnancy she wasn’t sure how little Skyler would take to sharing his number one girl with another baby, but now Rachel’s telling fans there is no mama drama to worry about. “Rodger, Skyler and I are madly in love and will be happily hibernating for the next couple of weeks.”

Mazel tov to Rachel and her boys!

Do Stilettos & 9 Months Pregnancy Mix?

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

Celebrities and sky-high heels go together like chocolate and peanut butter (yum!). But when you’re in the late stages of pregnancy, should you be wearing the same six-inch pumps you worshipped pre-pregnancy? Stylist to the stars Rachel Zoe certainly does. But even heelaholics like Kim Kardashian, Jessica Simpson and Fergie wore flats on occasion while preggers.

At nine months pregnant, Rachel was recently spotted wearing stiletto over-the-knee boots. This is nothing new for her, of course, with her first pregnancy with son Skyler, she tweeted: “Who said one can’t rock 6 inch high leopard booties by Brian Atwood at 38 weeks pregnant!!”

Yes, she’s looked fabulous with both pregnancies, but isn’t rocking massive heels while so pregnant down-right dangerous? As your belly gets bigger, your center of gravity can get wonky, leaving you less steady and more likely to trip over your own feet, starting at around the 25-week mark.

Most doctors suggest wearing under a 2-inch heel with good arch support once you enter the third trimesters, because of fear of falls as well as the fact that you can make existing back pain and leg cramps even worse when you’re in heels for extended periods of time. The best solution: if you really have to wear high heels, Women’s Health recommends alternating them with flatter ones through out the week, and as silly as it sounds, doing some calf stretches before wearing them, so not to cause cramping.

My feet were completely swollen my entire third trimester, so I couldn’t have squeezed into heels even if I tried (thank God I delivered during flip-flop weather)! But who can blame a fashionista for wanting to look and feel like her fierce pre-pregnancy self? After all, many women may not be able to wear their favorite footwear post-baby. That’s right, I hate to break it to you, but pregnancy can make your feet wider and increase your feet by up to a full shoe size by the time you deliver (mine are definitely wider and a half-size bigger!). So enjoy your favorite heels while you still can, ladies!

TELL US: Will you be wearing your stilettos till the very end of your pregnancy? Or at what point in your pregnancy do you think you should switch to flats and kitten heels?
