Did You Watch The Rachel Zoe Project?

After an exciting countdown, the season premiere of The Rachel Zoe Project finally took place last night. Did you watch? As the trailers revealed, there was no shortage of insanity.

In a nutshell, Rachel searched far and wide for a red carpet dress for celeb client Joy Bryant, flew to NYC for a business meeting, met up with Michael Kors for brand expanding advice, styled Joy, attended the Art of Elysium Ball, oh and dropped major moolah on a Birkin bag, a Balmain dress, and a Chanel necklace. We also learned a few Zoe-isms — "That's bananas," "I die" and "Shut it down" — which I'm sure we'll be hearing over and over all season. Exciting!

Rachel is using the terms "bananas" and "shut it down" from the African American hip hop culture. We use those terms and she picked it up from one of her clients. She did not author them. Get that straight right off top! THOSE ARE NOT ZOE-ISM TERMS. I think her husband is super dupa metro-sexual or trying to do something crazy with his gayness by marrying a woman who really doesn't want a real man or husband.

I watched both episodes last night. I like the show but Taylor brings that Bitch factor and I didn't like the way she treated Brad. I mean give the poor guy some pointers and proper training already.

I LOVED THE SHOW. Rachel is so chic, her guy assistant sort of irritated me. He came off as being incompetent and loved to dramatize EVERYTHING. Taylor is funny, but she does over exaggerate at times. Rachel is fun, but am I the only one who thinks that she's a beard and her husband is gay? He's so sweet, though.

I finally got to watch it and I love Rachel and I love the show! I don't know if I can watch the whole season though.... because Taylor is WAY too annoying. Brad is really trying and she is so jealous of his presence that she's being so cruel to him. I'm going to continue to watch but I just hope Taylor stops being annoying so it won't ruin the show.

I like her .. I mean i can do without all her little sayings like to die, and bananas...BUT that being said you get a look at what a stylist does, how they work, how her assistants work.. its awesome. I wish this show was out years ago...Its a great insiders look at the fashion world.. and even if u dont like her... who cares! The show is colorful, full of awesome clothes, and great scenery! Hope she gets a second season!!!!

OMG!!! CYL I love your little dog picture! Lol, but anyway, I liked the show, although I think Mrs. Zoe could benefit from a good facial and some Botox....she looks a lil' saggy and spent. I do like her though, she's Bannanas!!

I just watched it and thought it was pretty disappointing. There was just no signs of Rachel as an innovator or like, a window into her creative process. It was very shallow, like a girl who read every fashion magazine and repeated what they said. As they say in the fashion biz, no me likee!

Watched it for the pretty clothes, and accessories...I wish I had that kind of budget to buy half of what she buys...don't like her as a star...maybe she will grow on me.

It was juicy good fun but I'm curious to see more episodes before I profess my love for RZ. I just think it's too obvious that they hired Brad to drive the totally controlling Taylor crazy (who doesn't at least give some direction to a new employee, especially one who was hired to make YOUR life easier???) so that dynamic might get tired. I'm v. curious about her relationship with "Rodge"--is he even straight??? We'll see...

For those of you curious, iTunes is giving away the first episode for free so you can download it...that's how I ended up watching. I just like looking at all the pretty clothes :)

This show did the opposite of what I think it was supposed to do. I was so unimpressed with Rachel. I found all of her sayings irritating. She and her husband need to face reality and change their style, they're both 40 and look like their trying to be 20. I hate that.
