Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe has revealed she will be designing more couture creations after the successful Met Ball dress she made for Karolina Kurkova.
The supermodel's head-to-toe rose gold gown was Ms Zoe's first red-carpet design, and she now plans to make more.
The 40-year-old revealed to Fab Sugar: 'I can’t wait to do more and I love it.’

Ms Zoe also spoke about the experience of creating her first couture gown.
She said: ‘Not in my lifetime did I ever think that would be a reality – that was the dream fulfilled beyond what I could ever imagine.'
She continued: 'I spent a lot of nights dreaming about what I would want that to look like.'
With long sleeves and a full length skirt, a low scoop back and a belt which pulled the dress in at the waist, Ms Zoe's design stole the show at the Met Gala, paying homage to Italian fashion designer Schiaparelli and Muicca Prada.

According to Ms Zoe, the choice to include a turban happened only the day before Ms Kurkova walked the red-carpeted Met steps.
Ms Zoe said: ‘The most important thing for me as a stylist and a designer is how someone feels when they wear something, and that they feel incredible when they wear it.'
The celebrity stylist-turned-designer already produces handbags, shoes, and ready-to-wear, also recently announced plans to launch jewelry and cold-weather accessories.
