Rachelle Bergstein |CONTRIBUTOR

I am the author of two books on the intersection of fashion, business, celebrity and culture. The first, Women From the Ankle Down: The Story of Shoes and How They Define Us (HarperCollins, 2012) was called “wickedly provocative” by Kirkus, “fleet-footed” by the New York Times, and was named one of Janet Maslin’s top beach reads of Summer 2012. My second book, Brilliance and Fire: A Biography of Diamonds (HarperCollins, 2016) was called "exhilarating" by the Wall Street Journal, was picked as one of Amazon’s top nonfiction titles of the month, and was featured in best of summer lists at Harper’s Bazaar and The Knot. I have appeared on NPR’s Weekend Edition and Marketplace, and have been interviewed for WSJ Lunch Break and Yahoo Finance. In 2012, I traveled the country giving presentations on the topic of women and shoes. I live with my husband and our son in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

I write about shoes, diamonds and other objects of obsession.
