I was excited to see fashion icon Rachel Zoe back on television. I had fallen in love with Zoe and her brilliant abilities as a fashion stylist while watching her reality show, The Rachel Zoe Project. The show was intimate and fun, a glimpse into her life and her world and I felt a part of it from the start. Last night her new show, Fashionably Late with Rachel Zoe, premiered (Thursdays at 10:30 on Lifetime). The format is a 30-minute weekly talk show with Zoe and fashion writer and Harper’s Bazaar Editor-at-Large Derek Blasberg joining her each week. The show will also feature Zoe’s celebrity clients and fashion friends (last night, it was Jessica Alba).

There were moments of pure fashion fun and witty banter, like the costume-talk about Fox’s new show Scream Queens. And hearing Rachel Zoe-isms, like “I can’t even!” was a big plus! But something was lost from the documentary-style, getting-to-know-Zoe from The Rachel Zoe Project. At times, this show felt disjointed, unfocused, and a bit forced. And at the end when Zoe gave a few much appreciated fashion tips it felt condescending. I will give it another try next week but so far, I can’t say I am “ba-na-nas” over it.

I first heard the name Rachel Zoe in 2008 when I watched a reality show on Bravo TV called The Rachel Zoe Project. I had never been inside the world of fashion and celebrity styling and I was hooked. Ms. Zoe was exquisitely talented and in her own words, I went ‘bananas’ for her. Today, Rachel Zoe, still a fashion guru, has expanded her business world as a distinguished stylist, editor and designer, and is the mother of two young sons. Now, after a two year hiatus it seems fitting that Rachel Zoe will be returning to television this fall. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Ms. Zoe will host a half-hour talk show on Lifetime called “Fashionably Late With Rachel Zoe.” The show, scheduled to air on September 24 will be set in Ms. Zoe’s Melrose Avenue headquarters. I am thrilled to see her on television again! You’re so maj, Rachel Zoe! xx.
