I guess it does only take 21 minutes for you to change your mind about someone. The Rachel Zoe Project will soon be unleashed and it's already at the top of my Tivo. To further convince me this is going to be one of the Fall season's best, Zoe got on the phone with a group of reporters and dished. What about? Plenty. So plenty I figured we could do countdown of the juiciest bits leading up to the premiere of the show: Monday, Sept. 9 at 11 PM. Oh, and be sure to watch the 21 minutes to get up to speed. Ready, set, Zoe!
Meet Brad and Taylor:
"Taylor has been with me for three years. Taylor, as she would say about herself, she’s not the easiest person all the time. I love her like family. She’s like one of my children. And she is about keeping a very tight ship, and there’s no margin for error in what we do. But I think that you will enjoy, for better or for worse, the dynamic between the two of them. It’s not edited and is extremely real, and there is absolutely no acting in this show.
I feel that style is people’s way of expressing themselves and their mood. And I think if you notice it, Taylor is always in black and she’s very dark, and she’s very hard. Brad is always in very happy clothes all the time and he’s very dandy and very, you know — I think they’re equally as obsessed with fashion. I think that’s why anyone gets into this and I’m very lucky that they are. They both have such incredible style."
For the rest,
Rachel Zoe, the brand:
"My goal is to create a lifestyle brand. Something there’s no limit to, that will go from belts and sunglasses to jewelry and clothes and fragrance and home. Sometime in 2009 we’ll start to see products. I really love what I do and I think that however I can challenge myself to broaden that scope as much as possible is my ultimate goal."
Honey, I only wear high heels:
"How?! Platforms and inner cushions at the ball of your foot. You know, some designers actually put those in for you now. Like Brian Atwood puts a little kind of cushion right at the ball of your foot which makes them very comfortable. I think if there isn’t one in existence then you just put one in yourself."
