The epic Rachel Zoe/Taylor Jacobson split has been well-documented, and it looks like RZ and Tay will go head-to-head once again. However, this time the duel won’t take place on reality TV — it will go down at two of the year’s biggest awards shows.
Zoe (who is due to give birth in just a couple of months) will be styling host Anne Hathaway for the Oscars — a huge coup considering a) how many outfits Hathaway will wear before, during and after the show and b) the huge audience that will tune into the Academy Awards. Let’s just hope there’s no copycat scandal!
Relatedly, Jacobson has been tapped to dress this year’s Miss Golden Globe Gia Mantegna. (Miss Golden Globe is a bizarre title awarded to Hollywood progeny. As far as we understand, duties involve assisting with the awards ceremony. But Rumer Willis did it two years ago, and look where she is now!) Said Mantegna: “I am relying a lot on Taylor to guide me through the appropriate designers and appropriate dress. It’s important I wear something not too flashy that will outshine anyone else and that mirrors my role in the ceremony.”
Obviously Zoe’s gig is more major than Jacobson’s, but Mantegna will have several outfit changes and be on national TV. Pretty impressive for a former assistant!
