Few television debuts have excited me more than Rachel Zoe’s. One of fashion’s OG reality TV stars, her glamorous reputation preceded her as tabloids dissected her controversial friendships with the starlets she dressed (was she really giving Nicole Richie Mexican diet pills??).
The show promised real drama and fashion and it did not disappoint. At the time, it was one of the real-est depictions of the fashion industry on television (yes, it can really be that stressful). In one early episode, Brad even called a former boss of mine demanding samples! And just about every cast member was at least a little bit insane. From the fights to the life-or-death fashion disasters to the catch phrases, it was all just amazing.
We really got invested here at Fashionista–asking the show questions every single week.
Even in its later seasons, when–even Zoe must admit–it started getting a little boring, there were some memorably ridiculous moments, thanks in large part to new cast member Skyler.
As we mourn the end of the Rachel Zoe Project (yep, it’s really over), read on for our favorite ones from the past five ba-na-nas years. We’ll miss ya, Rach.
