TEAM TAY...

Can we talk about The Rachel Zoe Project now? Forgive me, I am the only one in my non internet life who watches and is obsessed with it. So apologies to anyone who isn't into it, the following will sound like gobbledygook and you'll just have to catch up. Last season was all about Brad and Rachel. This season the producers seem to have taken a more balanced approach, rather than going for the more obvious "this character is evil" "this character is nice" reality show format. And more than anything, this season I LOVE Taylor. I must first explain that I was a stylist's assistant for a reaalllly looooong time (at least twice as long as T) so I can identify with her there. It's hard to go out on your own, in fact it's probably easier not to assist anyone and just go straight into it. She works really fucking hard, is good at it, keeps the whole thing together, doesn't kiss ass and most importantly has incredible style. Obviously she has access to every amazing piece ever made, hence my lusting over certain pieces of Balenciaga, Lanvin and Chanel in her wardrobe (some of it must be borrowed from the rails, but still.) But it's never overdone, always simple and chic and young. Even a leopard Dior dress. Every time I see her I want to dye my hair platinum blonde, which would um, not be a good idea. Anyway I'm so glad they're showing that there's more to her than being a grumpy bitch.

Left - leopard Dior dress, right - that could be a Boy Band of Outsiders ad. I think the shirt is Steven Alan actually...


Mmm, pink Lanvin flats...
1. Balenciaga skirt, vintage necklace, 2. Balenciaga bag
Chanel jacket, American Apparel deep V -ultimate high/low.
