We’ve been keeping a running count of the times Rachel Zoe is actually seen eating on her show “The Rachel Zoe Project.” The first season she seemed to live on a diet of tea and coffee. But during the second season, Rachel actually ate a strawberry. So you can understand how shocked we were to see her carrying a heavy load from LifeThyme, a natural food market.

Rachel Zoe: Love her or hate her (and most people hate her), you can’t deny that she’s a force of fashion nature. She styles some of the most famous women in the world, has her own product line on QVC, her own TV show, and countless endorsement deals. The media generally has a skinny bone to pick with Rachel and her countless affectations and affections. (A New York Times reviewer called her “a pox on humanity.”) Yet I can’t help but be completely charmed.
Yes, she says dumb things. Yes, she talks in a stilted, lilting Valley Girl-all-grown-up accent. And yes, she’s so thin it almost hurts to look at her. But! She’s an independent successful woman who possesses one characteristic that we should all be trying to achieve: passion. Keep reading »
Barbie makes an appearance on tonight’s episode of “The Rachel Zoe Project.” Mattel created a Barbie in Rachel‘s likeness (left), and she, in turn, styled Barbie for a red carpet appearance (right). Mattel got Rachel completely right — from her oversized sunnies down to her extra flared-leg jeans. But I’m not too impressed with styled-by-Rachel-Zoe Barbie. Why? Because she looks like every other collectible Barbie doll. Check out a clip of the episode, in which Rachel reveals the Barbies to Brad, after the jump. Keep reading »
Harper’s Bazaar has pulled a funny! You know when Rachel Zoe says, “I die,” over a particularly fabulous item of fashion? Well, the magazine took her at her word in this pretty amusing editorial starring Ms. Zoe getting slayed by all her favorite designers — literally. Here, Marc Jacobs gives the celebrity stylist a rather shocking treatment. Find out what other designers did what to her after the jump. Keep reading »
We’ve known for a while that Rachel Zoe’s former protégée, Taylor Jacobson, was leaving “The Rachel Zoe Project.” But until the first episode aired we had no idea why. Was anyone as shocked as I was that Rach and Rodge fired her, implying that Tay-Tay stole from them? Does she have a bad attitude? Sure. Does she seem like a thief? Not really.

Welcome to Would You Rather, a game in which we concoct hypothetical style dilemmas and ask you to choose which option’s worse.
So, if you haven’t already heard, Miss Taylor Momsen did a very badass rebellious teenager thing this week by firing her personal stylist, which is either a really bratty or bold thing to do. What do you think, if you had the option to have a style guru like Rachel Zoe dress you, would you use her? Which is better—to make your own style or pretend you do by having someone else do it for you? Keep reading »
Thanks to previews, we already know that when the new season of “The Rachel Zoe Project” begins, a few details will emerge regarding Taylor Jacobson’s departure from Rachel’s empire. But since leaving Zoe’s clutches, Taylor set up her own company, hired an assistant and interns, got busy, and is building her own brand name. Much like any individual who’s branched out on her own, she’s learning that when starting out, it’s all about long days of hard work, determination, and grunt work. That being said, it seems like Taylor’s doing pretty well for herself. Unsurprisingly, she already has a clientele full of celebrity names including Kate Beckinsale, though she’d rather keep the list hush-hush unlike her former employer. She’s working with the denim brand Kasil, and she’s already been propositioned with the idea of her own spin-off reality show. Don’t hold your breath on her accepting that offer though.

“You’re more faux than the faux fur vest you’re wearing … which, by the way, is gorgeous.” LOL! This PopSugar video of Rachel Zoe meeting a Rachel Zoe impersonator would be funnier without the light saber fight (don’t ask). But you gotta love a celeb who can spoof herself, right?
