Jane Keltner deValle, the Fashion News Director at Teen Vogue, just tweetpic’d this photo of one of Rachel Zoe’s new pieces from her just-debuted Rachel Zoe Collection next to a page from Teen Vogue back in October 2007. In that feature, Zoe made over then-intern Elana Fishman (she’s now fashion credits editor at Marie Claire and a Fashionista contributor) into a “paparazzi darling.”
The dress in the Teen Vogue piece looks identical to one Zoe showed as part of her new collection today. Unless Zoe designed that dress herself five years ago, it seems she’s taking some very literal inspiration from whomever designed that mod sequined shift. If anyone knows who made this dress or has an archive of Teen Vogues at their disposal, let us know!
Update: Thanks to our awesome readers (and commenter below) the dress has been identified. And we should have guessed, with Zoe, it would be vintage. The dress was from What Comes Around Goes Around. And reader Tita Vizcarra was kind enough to send in a photo of the credits. Mystery solved. Vintage inspired, of course.
Elana also wrote in to tell us that Zoe called the dress in herself and liked it so much she bought it after the shoot. She’s also worn it on an episode of The Rachel Zoe Project so she must really really love this dress.
