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!
