weighing in on rachel zoe...

i hate that this is an issue, but my husband and i totally just had a heated debate over whether rachel zoe's credibility as a stylist is compromised by how shockingly thin she looks. i think that she is a genius and brilliant at what she does, i want so badly to shop her closet! i mean, what would i say when i like things? bananas and i die are my staples! 
my hubby says, essentially, that she is what's wrong with fashion and she is supposed to be selling pretty and that skeletal isn't pretty. i believe that just because she seems to have some sort of problem, it in no way makes her any less of a artist. needless to say, i'm right, but i can't believe that no-one close to her sees a problem because she is too thin and you all know how much i love a super skinny model/actress! I mean she denies it like crazy, but at some point she is going to have to be honest. the fashion world has long been filled with too thin ladies, but i truly believe that many people are built that thin, but when I see her concave chest, it just makes me sad, that's not normal for anyone, no matter how "naturally" thin.
so, what do you think about madam zoe? are you as in love with her as me? or do you find her overrated? is she too skinny? or are people making a big deal out of nothing? happy debating. 

on a pleasant note for fans of her show, bitchy mcbitch taylor jacobson has gone on to pursue other things!!! thank the dear lord above! i couldn't take anymore of her ungrateful, hostile attitude and blinding, brittle hair. hallelujah.

  2. LOL! Lauren, your comments on my blog always make me smile and laugh! I think she's great at styling, she truly has great talent for that. But seriously, she is WAYYYYYY too skinny. She's not even borderline anorexic, I think shes just fully blown there. BUT I love clothes and I love her work, so I'm willing to look past all that and not care as long as she's able to live and keep doing what she does!

    ps, I agree about AE jeans completely; they have no stretch and don't give any nice bum definition. But as for their prices; I usually just get stuff on sale there anyways, so I can't complain I guess. In Canada, Gap is *really* overpriced, so AE is a cheaper alternative.

  4. I'm really late on this but I do have to agree with bo. She *is* selling an image that includes herself. Even if she can wrap herself (and others) up in beautiful clothes she's still perpetuating an ugliness in the industry.
