Sadly, everyone’s favorite complainer, Taylor Jacobson, won’t be appearing on “The Rachel Zoe Project” anymore since she quit, but it seems her moment of reality show fame allowed her to add a few new jobs to her resume. Now on top of her styling skills, Taylor can claim the title of blogger and designer. L.A. denim brand Kasil hired her to create a capsule collection of denim looks, and the fruits of her creative labor are finally out for the world to see. Though the collection is full of skinny jeans, there’s one pair of flares, which look very similar to the denim that Rachel fell in love with and wore multiple times over on the show. Just sayin’. If she also styled this lookbook, then we’re missing the huge sunnies. More after the jump! [Fashionista] Keep reading »
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 »
I basically had a hernia when I encountered Brad and Taylor (from “The Rachel Zoe Project”) while out and about at Fashion’s Night Out. The twosome were having a grand ol’ time — The Zoe was nowhere to be found — and there didn’t sem to be any of the trademark tension seen on the TV show. In fact, Taylor couldn’t wait to plant one on Brad’s cheek when I begged them for a photo. Highlight of my evening. (Style Note: Brad was wearing his signature bow tie and white patent leather wing tips. Copycatting him ASAP.) [NYC, 9/10/09] Keep reading »
Season two of “The Rachel Zoe Project” premiered last night, confirming something I’d often felt throughout season one: I heart Taylor.
In case you’re not on a first-name basis with her, Taylor Jacobson is a styling associate who works for Rachel Zoe. She is part of the Brad-Taylor dynamic duo that helps Rachel dress clients for movie premieres, award shows, and more. With her messy blond hair that covers half her face more than half the time and stacked gold bracelets and a chunky watch on her wrist, Taylor is rock ‘n’ roll, and she has a bad attitude to match. When I confessed my girl crush on Taylor to a friend, he said, “I’m sorry, all she does is complain.” But that’s part of why I like her. Keep reading »
