Tomorrow, Tyra is going to have famed stylist Rachel Zoe on her show. Of course she is going to do the regular gauntlet of fashion questions (trends for the fall and winter, how to spruce up a wardrobe, etc), but she is going to really put her on the spot with a question everyone has been asking for years...Is Rachel Zoe responsible for the skinny trend in Hollywood?
For those of you who don't know who Rachel is, she is the stylist to stars including Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie and Lindsay Lohan. Who many have called "Zoe-bots" as many feel that she is turning her clients into likenesses of herself (she is very lithe herself).
This links summarizes Rachel Zoe and the controversy pretty nicely: http://voguetraders.com/fashion-jewelry-blog/2007/04/29/rachel-zoe-celebrity-fashion-stylist-extraordinaire/.
My question to you fellow Gatherites and Fashionistas, is she the reason for the uber skinny trend or is there more to it than that? All opinions are welcome.
Some articles I found online about Rachel Zoe:
UPDATE: So as I update this posting, I am watching Tyra now. Ok, I know that she isn't Oprah, but damn, she so glossed over the topic. "It's absolutely not true," Rachel said. And then they moved on to her book. Grrr so not happy. About to write a letter to Tyra about it.
