As many of you Glamour Girls know… Rachel and her “husby” (GG term for husband-it just sounds a lot cuter) Rodger become new parents with the arrival of their first child in March. If that wasn’t enough happy news for this fashionable couple there’s even more to celebrate. Seems that the latest word on the style street  is  that the Zoester’s  (our affectionate nickname for RZ)  first line (Fall/Winter Collection 2011) will debut in ALL 41 Neiman Marcus stores.  That’s quite a coo, to  have your very first collection snapped up by none other than the high priestess of retail  but a beautiful new healthy  baby too!   That’s quite a year and we’re only in June. Congratulations Rachel-you must be going ba-nan-nas…(one of RZ’s favoirte  expressions.)

He’s HERE!!!!

Baby Zoe has arrived. The buzz in the fashion biz is that Skyler Morrison Berman, (don’t you just LOVE the name?!) arrived on March 24 weighing a healthy 6 lbs. 12 oz. and is 20 inches long.  Rachel Zoe and her husband Rodger Berman welcomed their bundle of joy at Cedars Sinai  Hospital in Los Angeles CA. and everyone is doing fabulous. We are so happy for the Zoester. A baby will add a beautiful dimension to her life, not to mention…that  this is going to be the Best Dressed BABY on the planet…. Sorry Suri (Cruise) .

Congratulation Rachel and Rodger. I’m sure you’re just BA-NAN NAHS!!! over the arrival of your baby boy.

P.S. Just wondering..Is there such a thing as Designer Diapers????

Rachel Zoe’s…Styling for Dollars!

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

It all began with a lovely write-up in the Hollywood Reporter about Rachel Zoe. The article chronicles Rachel’s rise to styling fame in Hollywood. Through the years Mrs. Zoe’s client list has expanded as well as her styling fees and (here is where the article takes a bit of a detour)  when it mentions the recent “exorbitant fees” charged by the Zoester, for dressing longtime client and Oscar Host Anne Hathaway. The article states that Ms. Zoe, charges a whopping $10,000.00 per outfit (And I don’t think that includes hair and make-up). If my calculations are correct, then Anne Hathaway having made 7 changes during the Oscars, plus one red carpet outfit to get in the front door racked up a cool $80,000.00  bill.(Please don’t be in awe by my amazing math skills in adding that bill up) or the fees by Mrs. Zoe, because at the same time, someone???? surfaced a recent Forbes article on what the Big Wigs in Fashion bring in per year…

  • The head of Dior’s parent company, Bernard Arnault of Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy, is still France’s richest man and the fourth-richest person in the world, according to Forbes‘ annual rich list. Arnault’s personal fortune is some $41 billion.
  • Amancio Ortega, the recently retired founder of Zara, came 7th with $31 billion.
  •  H&M’s Stefan Persson was 13th with $24.5 billion.
  • François Pinault, who heads the luxury group PPR (which owns Gucci, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent and Stella McCartney, among others) was 67th with $11.5 billion.
  •  Philip Green (and his wife, the legal Monaco resident Cristina, in whose name Topshop is technically held for tax reasons) came 132nd.
  • Giorgio Armani, who came 136th. [Forbes]

***From the numbers stated above it seems that our darling Rachel Zoe is right on track!

Happy Styling!

Break-up at Camp Zoe…

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Listen up Glamour Girls.. This just in. Word on Fashion Avenue is that Brad (you know “Brad” that works for the Zoester) has left Rachel Zoe Inc as of today. “Sources” (and by sources I mean People Magazine …not a conversation overheard at the nearest Starbucks..) report that the split is amicable and that Brad has decided to go off on his own but owes everything he knows to Rachel.  So if you need a translation here it is: Brad and Rachel are the best of buds, and although Rachel is so connected in the fashion industry and has helped put Brad on the map with all the best names in the biz …Brad can’t continue the total devotion 24/7 to the  Zoe brand. Brad would like a little balance in his life…(Didn’t  he mention a dog and a boyfriend about 10 times in the last season of the The Rachel Zoe Project)?? I must say, I really like Brad-a class act and a really good businessman who understands the importance of relationships both business and personal. Good Luck Brad…..

Rachel Zoe’s Bazaar Shoot!

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Rachel Zoe, (or as I fondly refer to her as the “Zoester)-our favorite 78 pound, Starbucks-in-hand, stylist to the stars is back on Bravo and now she appears in the Harpers Bazaar September Issue editorial titled “I Die” (if you know the Zoe or watch her on Bravo-this is one of her mantra’s when she sees a fashion item that takes her breath away..P.S. this usually happens numerous times throughout the day in the Zoe Universe)! But back to the photo spread…. Our darling Rachel is featured opposite designers Vera Wang, Michael Kors, and Marc Jacobs (I ask you-could he be more handsome???-I think not) in a beautiful multi-page fashion extravaganza that you are sure to enjoy. I must say bravo to the Bazaar team that did this photo shoot. Our Rachel not only looks stylish, and relaxed but possibly well feed-… (Or maybe that’s just the lighting-they say the camera puts on 10 pounds which would give Rachel only 20 more pounds to gain to be a size 0). Love you Rachel and love the pics…just go eat a cookie and drink a glass of milk!

A Fashion Break-Up!

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Did you hear that noise?  Was it the sound of a top celebrity stylist going banana’s or the shrill of nervous anticipation from one bow-tied celebrity assistant. Word on the street is Taylor as in Jacobson is finally leaving Rachel Zoe Inc. Fashionesta.com reports::”We’ve kind of seen this coming for a while, but the season ender showed Taylor getting a new role (well, sort of) handling aspects of RZ’s growing merchandise business.

But we guess things didn’t get any better. In an email to contacts today, Taylor said: “After four amazing years at Rachel Zoe Corporation, I’m saddened and exhilarated at the same time to announce my departure. After much thought and consideration, I have decided to take the challenging leap to go off and style on my own.”

TV.com posted that Taylor had been “fired” by Rachel Zoe as of November 6.

Whom do we believe? Seems that Taylor has everything to gain in going off by herself and nothing to lose except maybe running an entire business for someone else by herself. On the other hand, Brad (bow tied assistant referred to above) and Rachel span the globe, drinking lattes and leave the” business “of running Rachel’s business to Taylor. To be fair- Rachel did build  Rachel Zoe Inc.from the ground up- she just left to much of the day to day work to Taylor

 Let’s just see if Brad will grasp the notion that running a successful celebrity styling business involves more than picking up a blackberry to check Starbucks locations.  

 Good Luck Taylor-I am sure you will be Fashion-tabulous!!

Project Zoe

What is approximately 90 pounds, hasn’t had a morsel of food since 2005, is eternally tan, and noted as one of the most sought after fashion stylists to the stars? Correct…. Rachel Zoe.

You are all so good and you got it on the first guess!!!!

Seems our little Rachel is back on Bravo premiering August 24, for season two of the Rachel Zoe Project. Her life is more Bananas (her favorite word-wish she would actually eat one) than ever.

This season Rachel takes us to Fashion week in Paris, shows us more of her everyday mayhem complete with  crazy schedules, temperamental assistants threatening to quit (again. and again…and again) and fashion disasters-did I hear someone brake a nail? Yes our tiny Rachel does all this without a bite to eat…EVER…just frame by frame of television footage showing Rachel scanning the globe with her trusty cup of Starbucks. Many of you know that I tried to start a cookie drive months ago to feed Rachel but to no avail. I can only hope that somewhere this season Racehl decides on a whim to venture into a drive through and order..well let’s jsut make this easy and say a banana split…

Take Care Rachel, we will be watching!

Rachel Zoe in Marchesa at Bravo A-List Awards
Rachel Zoe in Marchesa at Bravo A-List Awards

Rachel Zoe is a very sought after celebrity stylist to the stars. I am sure she is a lovely person but God, every time I look at the girl I just want to buy her a cookie.

Mrs. Zoe was at the Bravo A-list Awards wearing a Marchesa dress that could have wrapped around her 5 times over. Billowing dress be gone-she is rail thin and looks as if she’s just seconds away from being put on life support.

So won’t you join me and buy Rachel a cookie? We’ve got to unite fashionistas and let this girl survive in the nitty gritty grueling world of celebrity styling.
