You help Liv Tyler update her wardrobe in this episode. How would you describe her style?
Liv has incredible style. She is extremely busy and she's the most incredible mother, and she's one of the most beautiful women I've ever met in my life, in her spirit and obviously from the outside as well. She is a dear friend, beyond a client, and it's one of those things ... if she needs a fitting, I'm going to be there. I think every mother goes through a point in their life where they just feel like I just want to be fresh, I want clothes that look good that work with my body that I can run around and pick up my son and go to a meeting or whatever and not be fussy. And that was the goal was just to give Liv fresh pieces of clothes so she could have great items to play with everyday.
When you and Liv are together it seems less like business and more friends hanging out.
Well that's how we are. We are very good friends and we always have a lot of laughs.
Is that a unique relationship, or are you good friends with a lot of your clients?
I think that when you spend an exorbitant amount of time with people for a certain number of years, inevitably you're going to become close. I'm extremely lucky that the women I work with ultimately are my friends. There's a certain level of trust that happens. You talk about everything. It's an intimate relationship. It's similar to the relationships they have with their hairstylists and makeup artists. They'll spend a lot of time with the glam squad. Inevitably we're going to be close. I am friends with all of my clients - some closer than others of course.
You give Brad a lot more responsibility in this episode. He has to get Anne Oscar ready. Do you think he did a good job?
Well I was there getting her ready. The only time Brad was on this own was actually at the Oscars. I was with her up until she left. That's definitely something I would be a part of, so I was with her until she got in the car to go to the show.
You mention that you never get to go to the actual shows. Are you too busy handling other work?
There's just a lot going on that day. Brad was really going to change Anne into her next look. There's a lot I have to do as soon as the client leaves. There's always a lot of wrap work that needs to be done. It just goes on and on. When they walk out the door it's like my day almost just begins. But that was a really exciting moment for Brad. He's obsessed with the Oscars and Hugh Jackman and the whole performance ... it was very exciting. I knew that he'd be able to handle it.
Rachel, Love your show...LISTEN TO RODGER...you are in control of your image..the media tries to get attention for that moment in time, at your expense. YOU have a great life, a great husband a huge amount of talent. IGNORE them, they just know people want to read that garbage and it's easier than being a real journalist,if they had your work ethic they might be able to write something worthwhile. I have not picked up a tabloid for years because I will not give them the time of day. Glad you did this show, now everyone knows the truth..so just keep 'shutting it down.' That is the best revenge!!
I am from Belgium, I love your style and your show is fun! I don't like Taylor she's always in a bad mood!! She should be thankful about the nice job she has....You are a very nice person and don't under estimate yourself you are Beautiful!! I live in Naples florida and myself I love fashion.
I love the poka dot black and white top you wore in the dress for less photo shoot! You said it cost $29.00, were did you get it?
I don't know people that interact like this! Everyone is so damn fashionable, so damn . . . California . . . "like" you know what I mean????
I don't see eye contact, warmth, humor, no amusement over the foibles of life . . . everyone is so darn stressed over . . . clothes?
Give me someone who is a little chubby, whose clothes are Lands End, who enjoys life and can laugh at herself.
It is extremely tiring watching Rachel stress! Give me Paula Deen any day!
r. i can't believe how undressed your fitting/viewing room looks. those shelves were made for car parts, and you need different kinds of lighting for different looks. the clothes are all squished together and the shoes look like they are moving across the floor and up the walls in one giant mass.
if you dressed me , you would be this hard on me, so... j.
Rachel, Love your show. You rock! Brad is so darn stinkin cute. I love his easy going style. Your girl Friday, Tay Tay, on the other hand is so annoying. She needs to get in the "Zoe Flow". I can't stand listening to her whine and moan about working for the most fabulous stylist. Boo hoo, get her off the show. She's way too ungrateful. She's such a drag to watch. Thank God for DVR cause when she's on I hit that Fast Forward button faster than you can say "Bananas"! Other than that, I love love love you and your team. Keep up the great work.
Rachel you did such a great job with anne! I was blown away with the Blue Armani Gown that she was in it had such a classic romantic feel to it! keep up all your good work I loook forward to see what you can achieve in the future! Work it girl!!
I THINK THAT YOU ARE BEYOND TALENTED AT WHAT YOU DO BUT....
ALL THE TAH DAH - ACTING STRESSED OUT AT YOUR JOB - ALL THE TIME WEARS THIN.
ARE YOU A PRO OR NOT?
STOP THE BULLSHIT! WHY ARE YOU SO STRESSED IN YOUR CAREER AT THIS POINT?
CAN OR CAN NOT YOU WORKERS DO THEIR JOB? OR IS THE SELLING POINT OF YOUR SHOW THAT MAYBE THEY CAN'T? OR MAYBE YOU CAN'T?
I LIKE YOUR SHOW BUT NOT BELIEVING MOST OF IT.
YOUR BLOND ASSISTANT...CAN'T REMEMBER HER NAME - SHE'S A GAS! A KEEPER.
I AM NOT A TRANSPLANT IN HOLLYWOOD. BORN AN RAISED HERE. AND HAD A VERY CLOSE RELATIVE WHO WAS A STAR.
REMEMBER - WHAT YOU DO - HAS BEEN DONE FOR YEARS BEFORE YOU WITH OUT ALL THE BITCHING!
BUT KEEP AT IT - YOUR SHOW IS STILL GREAT!!
Rachel! The gown you chose for Anne Hathaway at the oscars was absolutly gorgeous. Who's the designer of Liv Tyler's red stiletos? because are to die for. Did you pick the black dress that Eva Mendez wore at the Venice film festival? She look like a godess in it.
Rachel, Love the show. But, you must treat Rodger like the gem he is. You guys are so cute. And pay more attention to Taylor. She has your back. Brad is fine but I have a feeling he'd fly the coup if something more exciting approached him. Hello Vogue, if ALT called him he'd be in NYC in a heartbeat. Anyway, stay focused and stay real.
Rach, When youve had enough you should open a Fashion Museum on Rodeo, How great would it be to charge addmission into your closet. And just think how you could justify all that shopping !!! Youve got so many one of a kind pieces, alot monumental in some way. This is your destiny ! U R BA-NA-NAS !!!!
hi rachel i love your show you have a gift and you love what you do it shows just rember take care of yourself first and your home life
You are a beautiful woman indeed.. yet you are so busy making other people look good that it seems that you forget about yourself. In the show you just seem worried about other people's looks and if you could look at yourself you would see a very lonely person. you focus so much on others and you dont seem to think about yourself. Are you planning on having a family? you dont look in love with your husband. you're cold towards him and he does not show any affection towards you. Is it worth the time you put on other people rather that you and your marriage?
I'm sorry I tried to not be so mean but, Tay Tay is really irritating me. she hates everything. What is her problem. she said as You and Brad where talking about the oscars that the conversation is making her ill. Well she makes me ill. Get rid of her!!!!
Rachel i like watching the show but I think you stress out to much. I know everything always has to be perfect or you think it does. I can't believe these celebrities are such hardasses, but maybe some are they are. I've always wanted to be a designer and I would hire you in a second to style celebrities in my clothes. At one point I thought I wanted to be a stylidt I even tried it in florida briefly, but you are treated like a second class citizen all the time. I don't believe belittling people to get the job done is the answer. Don't get me wrong I don't think you do that. Now about Taylor, what is her problem, Why is she always in a bad mood and bitching about not liking anything about what she does, she hates the oscars, she hates fashion week, she is always bitching at brad, she bitches at you she does not listen to you I would not hire her. Maybe as a viewer they only show her bad side but I just don't like her. I hate to sound that way, but she needs a reality check.
I don't understand why you can't write your own blog Rachel. A blog is supposed to be written by YOU. I don't want to see an interview from Bravo every week. It is not a blog. Get real.
get a backbone or take some management courses because you suck as a manager.
You need to manage Taylor and stop allowing her to manage you.
QUIT COMPLAINING ALL THE TIME! ENJOY THE JOB YOU'VE CREATED FOR YOURSELF AND RELAX. I ALMOST CAN'T WATCH CAUSE YOUR SOOO DRAMATIC! YOU LOOK UNPROFESSIONAL AND UNSTABLE ACTING THAT WAY.
Love the show.I thought working as a designer in private label womans apparel was a crazy insane job,its nice to know that anything to do with fashion at any end of the spectrum you have to be a little crazy to love the job and survive. Just one personal question,what happened to the house you lived in last season.
We are inspired by your creativity!
My daughter is interested in fashion and a future in fashion. She is in tenth grade and an assignment they have to do for class this week is to have some type of "conversation" with mentors and do a paper on their "interviews". We are aware that you are always busy so, we understand if you don't have the time. But would be incredibly honored if you did. please use my email for "parental safety".... and should you do that, she will respond with a few questions she would like answered for her interview.
If nothing else, we will continue to be inspired. All our best.
I love your show, Rachel. Just was wondering...seems you only get one of each dress in as they are one of a kind. What size dress do you receive that fits most of your clientelle?
I feel like when Bravo asked you if you thought Brad did a good job of getting Anne Oscar ready, you took all the responsibility. When the whole show was pretty much about how you did not know if Brad could handle everything and he did an amazing job. I'm a huge fan of yours but Brad did a lot of work with Anne and i think he deserves a bit more credit. But i am OBSESSED your show and i think you have amazing style.
hi rachel, i saw brad dealing with under garment/shape wear in this episode, can u please recommend me which brand/style that really works with tummy and waist problem, i'm clueless, coz there are so much different kind out there, thanks, love u!!!!
Rachel you do such an amazing job, so wish you could dress me. Until then I'll keep being inspired by your show.
P.S. Loved you on Regis and Kelly the other day.
I love love love how Rachel Zoe is indeed SHUTTING IT DOWN with every dress/outfit she picks for her clients which btw are some of my favorite stars!!! my only thing is Tay-Tays attitude...I just dont understand how ungrateful she is..UGH...it annoys me...if she hates it soo much then she should go out on her own and see how far she gets...yeah im sure every celeb would love to be styled by one of Rachels has-been assistants....
cheer up the attitude Taylor...it would help the viewers enjoy the show even more!!!
Rachel, I have three words for you.....I LOVE YOU AND YOUR SHOW...ok that was 6 words...i sooooo wish i could afford for you to change my entire wardrobe.
OMG Rachel ur a goddess!!! I absolutley loveeed the Armani!!!! ur so talented and omg the Golden Globes was soo Fantastic! It breaks my heart that Tay has been disconnected!!! I would kill to have her job! and Brad is adorable! I must say You and ur team are amazing!!!!! I would wish u good luck on future shows but u clearly dont need it!!! Keep up the Awesomeness!
Hola Rachel, I love love love your work! Your energy and good spirit shows through in the amount of care in the details that you won't ignore for your clients. I worry that some of the people that you have welcomed into "Zoeland" are abusing the privilage. While I understand that Taylor has been with you for over three yrs, she is no longer a team player. Her comments are working for ratings which are really ratings against Team Zoe. I didn't believe that the recession hit the celebrities until I watched your show. With that being said, if you're not for Team Zoe then turn in your Chanel and get out of the dressing room! HUGS & KISSES & IRISH WISHES !!!
Rachel, I loved your show this week (as usual). You had so much trust in Brad - and while everything came out okay there were some tense moments. I also just have to tell you that I loved watching you this morning on Regis and Kelly. I am a teacher so I am limited as to what I can watch. I am somewhat free in the summer and on holiday breaks - so when I heard you were going to be on this morning I set my alarm to get up to watch you. One thing I have to say is that you were so much less stressed than when you are on the show with Taylor and Brad. (My sister agreed with me). Wish you were available to help me be more fashionable for fall.
