The Zoe Team
Its always better the second time around! The second season of The Rachel Zoe Project just aired on Bravo, and it was BANANAS! Honestly my fashion blood begins to boil when I see Rachel and Brad go to Van Cleef to get vintage archive jewels, (OMG the Turquoise ugh!!) for Eva Mendes. OK! phew…calm down James, now the episode consisted of the usual high octane glamour, but on a much more different scale. First off, Rachel moved from her insane Hollywood Hills mansion to this stunning (looks like a penthouse) luxury apartment in L.A, secondly they moved the team to a new studio which is a lot more organized. Now the task at hand for the Zoe camp was to style Eva Mendes, Anne Hathaway, Demi Moore, Cameron Diaz and Debra Messing for the Golden Globes. Here are Rachels clients all complelelty styled for the 2009 Golden Globes…
White Silk Dior Gown with Taffeta Bustier and a Vintage Van Cleef & Arpels Turqouise Necklace
Royal Blue Armani Prive Gown with Van Cleef & Arpels Jewels
Pink Taffeta Chanel Haute Couture Gown with Chanel Finale Jewels
Pale Dior Gown with Cartier Jewels
Midnight Blue Taffeta Vera Wang Gown with Fred Leighton Jewels
All of Rachel’s clients “shut it down” and looked “ah-mazing” The episode was filled with the intense hustling and scampering for designer gowns that we are all used to, but the real kicker was when Rachel Zoe actually completely altered a one of a kind, Haute Couture Chanel gown for Cameron Diaz!! ARE YOU SERIOUS?! At that moment my love and respect for RZ was solidified and showed her true power in the fashion industry, to change the design of Karl Lagerfelds creation based on a vision of how the American public would portray her client and the dress. Karl was so elated that the situation worked out with the dress, he sent RZ a plaque showing his regards, Rachel called it her “Chanel Diploma” LOVE IT! This episode was only a taste of whats to come, and I kid you not that I will be there every step of the way, I love RZ and she is a true genius and I respect her as a fashion icon, pioneer, and a fabulous leader in line of work.
