How’s this for unprofessional? Stylist-to-the-stars Rachel Zoe is on a roll talking smack about her former assistant, Taylor Jacobson, in the press. Jacobson left Zoe’s business — and the reality TV show, “The Rachel Zoe Project,” which showed how Jacobson was the only one who lifted a finger in that office — last November. Word on the street is that Jacobson was fired over designer clothes that were lost or stolen from the closet — though that seems out-of-character, in my opinion.
We don’t know what really happened, but we do know there was no love lost between them: when asked about Jacobson’s new gig as a consultant for a denim line, Zoe told a reporter for Women’s Wear Daily, “I don’t care what she does. How’s that? How’s that for an answer?” More gossip, after the jump… Keep reading »
In an entirely unsurprising move, pint-sized stylist-turned-celebrity Rachel Zoe is launching her own brand, in fall 2011. Creatively titled The Rachel Zoe Collection, the line will include clothes, accessories and undies. Celebrity fashion lines typically make us a bit nervous, but Zoe’s fame did come from being a stylist, so she may escape the clutches of all things boring and derivative. That said, she wears a few too many tent dresses and isn’t typically all that impressive with her personal style. What do you think? Excited or over it? [NBC] Keep reading »
Want to break out of the red lip box? So do I. I’m sort of over it (or at least over telling you about it). Today, I’m all about bright orange lips for spring—well, bright orange-with-a-hint-of-red lips, that is. They achieve the same wowsa-look-at-her-lips reaction, which were all over the runways for spring, and now Rachel Zoe is getting in on the action! (Check out Chloe Sevigny, above; she’s a major orange lip fan.) So what orange lipstick/gloss should you pick? Try Make Up For Ever Lip Gloss #2, says Zoe. And for $12, it’s worth the beauty risk!

Well, you’re in luck! But it’s not the opening you think. When Taylor left to go style on her own, many assumed Rachel would hire another style assistant and Brad would be first styling associate. Actually, the opening, according to the listing on Linked In, is for an Advertising Sales and Business Development Executive. According to Zoe, Inc. they’re looking for someone to “evangelize The Zoe Report as being a leader in the fashion publication/ newsletter space.” (Whatever that means.) They also want someone with at least three years experience in ad sales who already lives in L.A. and has an “entrepreneurial attitude—overcome any obstacle, creative, willing to be an evangelist for a new product.” (Again with the evangelist stuff?) For someone with the qualifications, it does sound like a pretty sick job—I’m sure you could work yourself onto an episode or two! [Fashionista] Keep reading »

Oh, pul-ese, don’t even pretend to play like you don’t care to see inside Rachel Zoe‘s home. The woman can style the hell out of an Oscar look, so you have to assume she’s got a pretty chic house, too. Well, you’d be correct. There’s lots and lots of white, broken up with hits of color courtesy of accessories and racks of clothing. Oh, and loads of Missoni textiles used in pillows and throws. (Insert “I die” here.) Somehow I randomly came across this Welcome Home tour and I could not stop gawking at the interior. Get a closer look after the jump! Keep reading »
Usually, when celebrities come out with a clothing line or fragrance, it’s kind of ridiculous. Does Jennifer Lopez really need all those versions of Glow? But with the news that the Olsen twins are creating a brand-new collection of eyewear for The Row, we’re not exactly shocked. After all, the mini moguls basically wear sunglasses like Rachel Zoe – inside, as major accessories, and the larger the better. This spring, four different styles of sunnies will launch at Barneys New York and Bergdorf Goodman, priced from $325-$390. The twins partnered with Linda Farrow to create the designs: aviator, square frame, round ’60s-inspired, and brow-line rims. “We tried to find certain pieces that look good on more than one face, to pay close attention to how they fit certain faces and make them wearable at the same time,” said Ashley Olsen.
Don’t worry (as if you are), the twins aren’t stopping their fashion takeover with sunglasses. Apparently, the future may even hold space for footwear and handbags. [WWD]

Rachel Zoe‘s large-sunglassed visage has become a ubiquitous image. Her tent dresses are recognizable from yards away. And that mane of wavy blond hair has been copied by Midwesterners and starlets alike. Why not add to all the Zoe worship on Halloween by being her? But you’ve kind of got to take it to the hilt. Here’s how … Keep reading »
Rachel Zoe‘s much-anticipated line for QVC will officially debut during New York Fashion Week, but nitro:licious has a sneak peak. Of the five items we’ve seen so far, three of them are faux fur vests. And, yes, the vests are oh-so-Zoe — we have definitely seen her wearing similar ones — but we won’t be rushing to buy one. Her catchphrases blended into our life seamlessly, but there’s no way this thing is going to fit in with the rest of the stuff in our closet. [nitro:licious] Keep reading »
