Bravotv.com: Have you seen the new RZ videos on Bravotv? They're really great montage videos...
Oh my god.
Shut up. [Laughs] Oh my god. OH. MY. GOD. That is amazing. So embarrassing.
Most important question: What did you think of Brad's short shorts?
You know what it's like I don't even think about it anymore. I'm so numb to Brad's ensembles that I barely even blink any more. It was kind of hysterical when we called the meeting and he walked in literally in a bathing suit. I was like, 'Are you going to Malibu? Where are you GOING?'
He loves it.
He loves it. Loves to show his legs.
Well it was a combination of things, when you do an editorial shoot, especially for something like V, you get to have so much fun. It's a creative dream for me when I get to do great editorial shoots. I just finished a great cover shoot for Harpers Bazaar in New York. It never gets tired - the creative aspect of the job. It terms of my mind being really stimulated by what I see all the time and being able to actually use the pieces I see on the runway all the time.
Was it your idea to have the shoot in the gym? How much control over the shoot did you have?
It's tricky. The idea came from Stephen Gan, the creative director of V. He's one of the most brilliant minds in this industry. He loves over the top. He's just a real force in this business. He's someone I admire. When I was hired to do that V shoot, he said to me, 'You know Rachel, I'm thinking xanadu," and I thought 'oh my god, that's genius.' That's a time of my life I lived through and loved that time period in fashion. So I got to translate that with clothes from the fall runways, like Marc Jacobs and Louis Vitton. That was just amazing.
