After recent reports weighed in on Rachel Zoe's stick-thin appearance at an L.A. fundraiser on Dec. 7, estimating her weight at a paltry 89 pounds, the stylist to the stars is responding to her critics and insisting she's healthy.

"Rachel is fine," her rep tells OK! "She just got over the stomach flu and is busy working on the second season of the Rachel Zoe Project for Bravo."

The dimunitive fashion diva has gotten flack in the past for having allegedly influenced  Nicole Richie and Lindsay Lohan to slim down when they were at their lowest weights, a rumor that Rachel has denied in the past.

"The thing is, we've had thin people in fashion since fashion began, and blaming one person for that gives me way too much power," she said of critics' claim that she had "brought anorexia back."

"I don't have the power to cause anorexia any more than I have the power to cause obesity or addiction. If a parent has a child with a problem, they look to blame anything or anyone they can, and I think it's the parents who have to say, 'We should try to fix this'."
