WWD caught up with Zoe in the midst of filming the fourth season of her hit Bravo show “The Rachel Zoe Project,” while the stylist-turned-star-turned-designer was putting the finishing touches on her new contemporary collection. Not to be confused with her insanely successful and under-$200 line for QVC, Zoe’s new line considers Alexander Wang and Diane von Furstenberg the competition, and will be priced at $250 for a day dress to $700 for a full tuxedo.
The collection, on which she partnered with Fung & Li, is purposeful departure from her QVC collection and what most would consider her signature style. Zoe told WWD, “I’d imagine everybody is expecting something from me that’s kind of a Seventies, uberboho-glam kind of thing, and, you know, very accessorized. And it’s not.”
Though the publication described her belly as something that “could pass for a big lunch,” Rachel Zoe is seven months pregnant with what is now officially a baby boy.
[Zoe] initiates the [pregnancy] conversation during a phone interview last week, though she stops short of divulging if it’s a boy or a girl. Either something changed over the weekend or she is terrible at keeping secrets, because the pronouns fly on Monday. “It all depends on his arrival,” she says patting her stomach. Not five minutes later Berman swoops down, kisses her belly and declares, “It’s a little boy.” A boy! Who will she dress up in her archive of vintage Lanvin?
Good question! We suspect we can find some takers.
Anyway! More important than the collection and her big baby reveal was the debut of beloved former assistant Brad Goreski’s new replacement. According to WWD, the new Brad comes in the form of a “leggy brunette” named Mandana. Sounds like a perfect fit.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
