anyways, i'm really interested to see how her bag line turns out, and how well it sells. i can't see too many people paying $10,000 for a rachel zoe bag that sounds as unoriginal and gaudy as the article makes it seem, but you never know.
Well, you probably have a point ... in order to be a hypocrite, you have to claim values and then betray them. As far as I can tell, she values celebrity at any cost, extreme skinniness, designer labels, and huge shades, and has done nothing to betray those "values" ...

I get tired of hearing about her "look" since its not as original as they claim but she has helped some people pull themselves together. I just wish there were less press on her.
yeah, that's exactly what i think of her. i will just be really interested to see what these bags look like and how well they sell, just what demographic will buy them...etc.

Nicole Richie and Lindsay Lohan recently wore a Rachel Zoe clutch to two seperate events. Here's a good shot of it. What does everyone think?

I think its gorgeous. It fits the whole bohemian-glam aesthetic which Zoe's really into. I really like the clasp and the gold colour.

I think it's really not worth the money. It looks like a very basic clutch that someone threw an semi-elaborate clasp on. Plus it really reminds me of the gucci clutches/bags from a couple of years back with the snack motifs on them.

The gold snake has to improve. No offense, but it looked like it was made in China...Something like that needs to be really elaborate and using high quality metal...otherwise, it looks like it's made for K-mart.

I like the detail leather/gold closure but the clutch itself looks out of place and a tad cheap. It honestly looks like the clutch is "styled" rather than it being one cohesive bag. Weird.

The bag is cute but I totally agree with you. I was recently at the gucci outlet outside of florence, italy and they had those bags there and before I even read your comment I thought the exact same thing.
