Bravotv.com: How are the Golden Globes different from other award shows? Can you get away with more?
I don't know if I'd say you can get away with more - but it's a little less intense than the Oscars. People really have fun at the Globes. It's just a bit less formal, but equally as fabulous.
You dressed five women for the Globes: Anne Hathaway, Demi Moore, Debra Messing, Cameron Diaz, and Eva Mendes. What was the look you were going for each of them? Let's start with Anne Hathaway, who was nominated.
For Annie we were going for real vintage Hollywood glamour. Really elegant timeless glamour. Annie had a great year of fashion and took a lot of risks, so we felt that for the Globes, it was just about looking beautiful and elegant, and really returning to the young Hollywood movie star, which she does so well.
Did you have any problems with Anne's dress?
For all of the women I worked with on the Globes, let's just say it was not easy getting to any of the dresses. It was a really intense process of digging extremely deep in a very short period of time, because we didn't have a lot to choose from. The overall tone, as we talked about on the show, is that because it's after the holidays there are extremely limited resources, everything's closed, and a lot of stuff has already been seen in magazines or worn by other people.
Can you tell us about Demi Moore's look at the Globes?
Demi just took my breath away. She's just this kind of ethereal breath of fresh air. She's real, soft, subtle, elegant. I thought it was such a nice change for Demi to go soft and natural instead of that sort of edgier black look that she traditionally wears. Her hair was really soft, her jewelry was so just simple - elegant, vintage Cartier diamonds. Her look was just really, really soft and beautiful. She almost wafted down the carpet. It was very airy.
You did a wonderful job dressing everybody, but my concern is that you kept stressing how you were so worried that the couture dress for Cameron Diaz might be too much for us idiotic Americans. Because it had a sleeve? What? Please give us more credit-you are not the only one with a sense of style, and quite frankly, anybody who is watching the red carpet is into fashion to begin with. It is also what drives me crazy about Anthony Bourdain, as much as I love him, when he goes to another country and bemoans American food while eating guinea pig with a family living in a shack. If he got off his cultural high horse and actually went to Appalachia, he could get his fill of raccoon, possum and other fun stuff with nary a McDonalds or Burger King in sight. Please don't insult us-I may not shop couture, but "I knows it when I sees it".
Rachel, I love you and your show! I am so glad that the Rachel Zoe Project is finally back on Bravo. You rock!
I have watched your show an appreciate you. You are under enough stress, don't let Taylor continue to disrespect you. It doesn't look good.
Please write a book on style! You have so much style. Please you are able to advise all the rich starlets can you not give us some style tips? I was really disappointed by your book because it was not what I needed and it was all about you. Please do it again.
Dear Rachel: Lve your show. I cannot help but ask why you do not renovate a bigger space and organize all your gowns. The flood etc...would have never happened last year had you hung those dresses higher than sea level. You can organize a room or anything these days so that everything is filed into the computer and when you want something you check the computer adn it tells you what row section etc...There are wine cellars organized this way. And I am sure anyone of your connections would love to do it. Please as a mom who organized part of my own collections this way if Ican do it you can.
OMG...best ever (so far). The five women you dressed looked fabulous, beyond. Eva looked like a bronze goddess...the necklace was genious. Anne looked so elegant, classic. Debra was stunning. Demi looked dreamy. And Cameron was a vision in pink Chanel, so Cameron. And so on the mark with the alteration. Your vision to alter the Chanel was right on....and it would appear Karl agrees. I can't wait to see more.
PS: Taylor needs to lighten up; she is too young to be so uptight and mad all the time...so grouchy.
Your show is the first thing I think of when my creative muse is on vacation. I design/make artisan jewelry and I love watching the show, especially when you go to pick out jewelry. It sparks a ton of inspiration for updating my designs towards today's clothing trends. Just don't ever let the show end or I would have to go back to oggling the local female news anchor's jewelry, which is pretty much inspired by Wilma Flintstone, I think. Seriously, you are amazingly talented and I do rely on your show to keep me focused on what is hot.
Something commendable about Rachel and Roger. They are the workings of a good marriage for high power celebrities. What's commendable is how they communicate as a marriage. Roger lets Rachel know how he feels about her shopping and Rachel genuinely cares what he thinks and feels on the matter. Ok granted she feels it during and after she buys something but at least she does it. And to top it off he lets her know she needs to take some purchases back and she does with good humor. Not like some other celebrity marriages we see on TV where he doesn't care what she does and she goes over his headship and doesn't care what he thinks or feels. In my book they are a good example for celeb marriages. From Spokane WA
Rachel-I adore your show more than any other show on Bravo (with Flipping Out coming in a close second). You should be proud of how much you've accomplished thus far. Keep on rockin' in the free world.
PS-where the F is your Dylan McKay porsche, sister-friend?
What else can I say but I die everytime I watch your show... I'm just your average girl but I would be a fashion goddess if you dressed me!! You are the best at what you do. Don't let anyone tell you different.
P.S. Love the relationship you and your hubbie have... awesome
Rachel, You look the best and I must add that your husband really completes the picture of the entire way Team Zoe is run...do you know how good you have it to have such a calm husband???? Questions the show could answer: 1- What is the average fee that a client pays for you to dress them for an awards show vs. putting daily wear for them together? 2- I think a contest to have either a "Spend the day or half day with Rachel and the winner just follows along with you" 3- Contest idea also: Winner gets to shop two hours with you and you put together a couple of outfits for her everyday and evening plus tell her how to dress for her figure.... 4-How many bracelets do you wear on your arm with all of the gold bangles? Did you collect them over the years and are there stories behind each one like: My Aunt died and gave me this one, Roger bought this for our 2nd anniversary, bought this at a Vintage show, etc. I absolutely love your show and wish it was on all year! You go girl!
Hi Rachel, Love your show. You are so sweet and nice. What I'd like to point out is Taylor has been with you longer than Brad but you seem to give him preferential treatments - he spent a lot of time with you, including attending shows and shop. I could see clearly as days that Taylor's feeling was deeply hurt because of that. But being young, she didn't know how to articulate this: its not petty jealousy but what she entitles to in her career. Pls consider this "angle" because Taylor deserves more - Pls promote her and spend more time with her - She wants to grow and this would come with spending more time with you. She just needs the recognition that fits the contribution she devotes to you. EX: She worked with 3 celebrity on the Globes vers Brad's one.
My 16 month old literally struts around our house dramatically saying, "I die!" while carrying like 3 of her little play handbags up and down her arms- I LOVE it! Our lives are pretty vanilla except when we watch this fabulous show!
What can I say, expect that you are over the top. I love watching all the drama and excitement you have in your career. You are a joy to watch!
As for the Karl Lagerfeld dress for Cameron, what if you had cut a triangle into the fabric at the right top shoulder instead of cutting off the entire shoulder sleeve? I love your perspective, so just curious...
Hi Rachel, I have to say that I love your show, I admire you, You are awesome, your choices and your taste are exquisit!!! amazing. I'm so want to be like you, well that has been my dream since I was a little child, I always read fashion magazines, and I dreamt alll the time to someday be that model on the covers with the wonderful make up, hair and dress, since I have memory that was my dream and my illusion, Now I'm 33 years old, in a dead end job, who pretty much makes my life miserable and is far from glamorous, and my health is not the best I'm afraid that I might have something really serious going on ( digestive issue) but I don't want to hear bad news from doctors, so I'll pray for a miracle, a guess at this time I need a big Miracle, I can't get sick or die, I have a mom who needs me more that ever because my father past away last year. that make me think that I don't want to die without enjoy my dream, be like you or at least achive something of the succes that you have at least a 5% of it, believe me Rachel at this point that would be amazing. I really admire you, and pretty much what you do would be my dream job, that was the life that I dreamt about since I had 4 years old, I now it would be really hard to fulfill my dream, but I really enjoy watching your show, YOU ARE AN ANGEL, sweet and with and excellent test. Keep doing what you're doing. I hope you can read this. I wish you the best, YOU are the best Sincerely Sara
Dear Team Zoe, I am 16 years old and a great fan of all of you guys. I would love it if you could do a contest so that people like me, who are being affected by the recession a bit more maybe than your typical clients, could enter for a shopping spree with Team Zoe-hey even just one of you guys would be amazing! In case you feel like gining me a shopping spree for recommending this(haha) I'm 5'7 103lb(gross spert) and I LOVE LOVE LOVE clothing that represents the flowiness of the 1960s-1970s(It basically my whole closet).
OMG!!!!!!!!! RACHEL looks amazing and i would love to work with her or intern with her, she is so talented and her work is so unpredictable i love her and love the way her love for fashion is so head on; if she could answer a question for me it would be how and what did she do to get her foot in the door.
Rachel I do like your show. I'd like it much better if you'd get rid of Taylor. I mean c'mon. Her butt would have been fired long ago if she worked for anyone else. Brad isn't an angel but unlike Taylor I think he has your best interest at heart. Get rid of her. Let her get her own business --- yeah right like that'll happen.
Rachel, I enjoy your show and I can see how stressful your job is and how you have to multitask constantly. I've noticed you guys text a lot while driving. We've seen how this results in collisions and fatalities. Not only is texting while driving bad, the fact that Bravo shows you doing it (possibly leading viewers to believe it's okay) is even worse. Don't you think it's dangerous? While your job is very important, I think your personal safety and the safety of others should be your #1 priority when you're behind the wheel. Please stop texting while driving. P.S. Keep up the good work! Your celeb clients look awesome!
Dear Rachel,love your show. My name is Stacy a fashion design also a Dental Assistnt, " i know why am i tell you all of this." Rachet i would love to work for you in any area of your campany, you are a out going boss and have a skillfull team. Being a part of that team i can utiliz my skills. I am living in one of the best county in CA which is Marin County.I move from Jamaica 9years ago and want to go with my dream, but at the time i have to live in NY or LA which would not work with my 3year old son. so i went back to school and get my Dental Education, but know my mother is living with me and my son his 12year old, i want to go back to my dream, i do not want to go on and on, love to hear back from you Rachel, thanks
I look forward to the new episodes of the show. I identify with Taylor but I know she is appreciated. Maybe a percent of the company if she doesn't have that? She does what she has to to get it done. Brad is so funny and Rachel is an artist in achieving a good look for a specific client. Thanks for a good time each Monday.
Hi Rachel, I LOVE LOVE LOVE your show. Would die if I had your handbag collection. You look gorgeous too!!! Can't wait to see your collection! Best Wishes
I loved the way Cameron looked!! Who designed her shoes??? They were GORGEOUS!!!!! Love your intuitive style picks for your clients.
Never mind your language, Rachel. It's TV, not church!! People can always change the channel if they don't like what you have to say.
I think you're fabulous. I wish you'd come to Detroit and style me. I really need some help! I'd also love to know more about your diet. You've inspired me to pull myself together. After four years of "letting go" it's going to be an uphill battle, but, somehow, you've made me believe that I can do it!
Rachel, I just wanted to say that you have been such an inspiration in my life. After I had my daughter, I wasn't taking care of myself very well and had let my appearance go. After your first season started, it was like a wake up call and I decided enough was enough. I pulled myself up and haven't looked back. I am as trendy as ever with a new love for everything fashion and especially vintage...which was inspired by you. I just wanted to say THANK YOU!!! Lots of luck in the future and keep doing what your're doing!!! XOXO Leslie
I am a 40 year old stay at home mom of 6 (4 girls, 2 boys) and I love your show! I can even get my son to sit and watch with me. I would love to see you have one lucky winner (ME) come hang with you for a week!
Rachel, No wonder Taylor was done on Golden Globe night. She did three stars and you and Brad each barely managed one. You do seem to undervalue her when it seems you would be lost without her.
Rachel, I just want to say that I am a huge fan of your show, and you are a true inspiration to women. After I had my daughter I had really let myself go and I wasn't looking as good as I should have. Then came your show, and it was your look and true love for everything for fashion that woke me up and really take a look at my own style and turn my self around. Buying your book was a helpful tool that I still pull out now and then to get inspired. Now I am as trendy as ever and have found a new love for vintage as well. I just wanted to say THANK YOU!!!! and Good luck to you and Camp Zoe in the future.
Rachel, I die for your clothes and your impecable taste in shoes, jewelry etc. I thought that the show was great and Eva looked amazing. The white dress against her skin with the torquise was unbelievable. You and your team did a great job. I wish that you, Brad and Taylor (if she's in a good mood) would come to my house everyday and pick out my clothes:)) I am from Louisiana but lived in LA for most of my life. Unfortuneatley, I am living in Baton Rouge now and the clothes that people wear are pretty bad. Do you still have your website that has your picks for this season's fashions?
Hi rachel, i just want to say that you´ve been my biggest inspiration now for three years, and i just have to say that i love love your passion for clothes. I just wonder if there is a way that i can contact you, i want to ask you about some ideas for my prom which is comming up the end of this year. Would love to get some ideas and your opinions.
Rachel, I continue to be disappointed in how you still come across as appreciating Brad more than you do Taylor. Taylor performs some miracles for you but you act s if Brad is your second in command and Taylor is the same as your other assistants instead of an associate. I think you need to give more credit to Taylor. Yes she has some areas to work on but it is hard to do when you feel as if you are being overlooked. Other than that I enjoyed the show tonight!
I just have to say that your show has a lot of drama, and this is what I love about your show. I could not wait until your show came on again because I love to see what happens. I do have a great respect for what you do - all your girls looked great this week. I use your show as an escape to my real life - my brother has a brain tumor and I know this is a reality - There are times when I look for something else to keep my mind off what is really happening. Thank you for being one of my escapes.
OMG I so enjoy your show. The beautiful clothes, jewelry and locations. Oh to do what you do and earn a living at it! Sometimes when I'm at work (office job) it takes everything within me to keep from laughing out loud at how ridculous it all is. In my world your world is over the rainbow and living in Oz. Thanks for a wonderful time. Kaye, Nebraska
Eva Mendes look was the most stunning thing I have ever seen on the red carpet. When the episode started tonight and the white dress was mentioned I remembered the total look from the Globes. All the ladies looked great! You did a fabulous job!
wow rachel loved your show tonight cannot believe how beautiful your clients looked in there dresses.how talented and blessed you and your staff are. great job
Rachel, can you get a handle on the cursing, especially when combining expletives with the Lords name. Thanks Sweetie
