Zoe is a big believer in the maxi skirt; hers come with a substantial slit. "It's not dowdy, but it's not overtly sexy either," she explains. And in camel, paired with an off-white openwork tank sweater and a tan leather jacket, it has a serious cool factor. Ruffled cocktail frocks, on the other hand, have a coyer sensibility, even at thigh-baring lengths. If it's not easy to picture Zoe herself in a flouncy strapless number in shocking pink, there's little doubt it'll find a home with one of her many fans. This multitasking entrepreneur seems quite at ease stepping outside her comfort zone.
