I was reading some blogs today and ran across this hilarious post in NYMag.com’s, The Cut about Rachel Zoe. I will say I’m sad that her new reality show, The Rachel Zoe Project has already aired it’s season finale. She has this excessive boho thing going on which I’m totally into right now.

Will ‘The Rachel Zoe Project’ See a Second Season?

The season finale of the not-so-warmly received Rachel Zoe Project is tonight on Bravo. The first season seemed so short — we can’t believe it’s nearly over. Then again, The Real Housewives of Atlanta just started and we suppose the world can only take so much shameless consumerism in These Economic Times. Indeed, New York Times television critic Ginia Bellafante called Zoe “a pox on humanity” and her “mad consumption … downright unseemly.” Sensitive Zoe — who cried when she found a post about herself on this blog — has memorized all of this, of course. She tells the L.A. Times:

“It was the strangest thing in the world for someone who has never met me to accuse me of making our society superficial,” Zoe says. “Judging the state of society based on me? A ‘pox’? This show is not an effort to solve world issues. It’s a bit of glamour, a bit of an escape.”

Or just another shameless spender for the world to joyfully resent/envy? However one sees it, the first episode’s ratings were better than the first episode of Project Runway‘s. So it seems rather odd that Bravo hasn’t confirmed if it will shoot a second season. “Nothing’s official, but if Bravo asks, I’d love to. I can take it,” Zoe says. Maybe you can, Zoe.

As my job doesn’t allow much room for creative interpretation, I resorted to exerting my fashion forward sense into my own clothing. Creating outfits that scream indie rocker one day and boho chic the next. Then on a manic Monday as soon as I was ready to call it a day, I was informed that my clothes needed to reflect a more conservative image, only to be backed by the fact that our department sets the standard for the rest of the talent we dress (this made me chortle). As my mood was totally tainted, the only thing I could look forward to was attending “The Inaugural Supima Fashion Show” for fall/winter ’09-’10. The show was held at Gotham Hall and showcased new designers who created outfits out of Supima Cotton, a natural fabric, as we are all banking on the trends of going green. Not only did we walk in without standing in line, I had a lovely conversation about the cover of “The New Yorker” with Jonathan Harr who was sitting next to me and took a picture with the guys from Project Runway. Here are a few of my favorite looks from the show. ENJOY!!!
