Fash Fave / Fail Friday

Fash Fave - Rachel Zoe


Mega stylist, designer guru, and the ultra fabulous mommy of one, arrived at the 25th annual Footwear News Achievement Awards looking beyond uh-mazing in a gorgeous black maxi. Chic just got a new definition and its got Rachel Zoe's picture all over it. During the posh event the super stylist won the launch of the year award for her incredible new clothing line. Take a peek at the collection here. I'm obsessed with Rachel's red carpet ensemble. I love all of the understated details in the dress. The waist, collar, and sequins at the bottom, you just know it was breathtaking in person. Can I please have Rachel's life and be besties with Brian Atwood? Every girl needs free shoes for life. Plus, look how dapper he is. I'm totally smitten. To keep warm, the part time reality star threw on her favorite go-to fashion item, a fur jacket, which still has my heart racing. Faux Fur AND sequins, this week's Fash Fave couldn't have been an easier choice. Rach, you killed it.

Fash Fail - Jessica Simpson


Jessica, love, you may have been unaware of what was inside your Chicken of the Sea can, but don't pretend like you didn't know this getup was a major fash fail. Unless you're attending a Halloween party as a Koala bear, this is just unacceptable. The billion dollar fashion mogul and her newly released baby bump strolled through NYC in an all too boring maxi dress, which she strangely paired with what can only be described as her bathroom rug. This is a serious textile overload, Jess. As for those black wedges, well they look downright orthopedic. And the super small clutch is making me seriously uncomfortable. Someone please teach this girl about proportions. Oh and in conclusion, when Ken Pavis has the day off from doing your gorgeous blonde locks, which he clearly did, try going for a sleek ponytail instead. I don't think Hollywood can handle you, Christina, and Britney all going through breakdowns that include baby drama and complete withdrawals from the fashion world. You're better than that, love. 

Something Extra: I'd like to take a second to address Mr. Atwood directly. If on the slim chance Rachel ever decides to share you for a day, I can think of a certain girl who'd love to find the following items under her Christmas tree. Thanks love! You're a doll! Xo

  1. HILARIOUS!! Oh Jessica. I agree with you the ensemble is too monochrome for the proportions. Probably would've went with a tailored blazer or something not so long to wear over the maxi dress. I also would've went with a totally different color in the maxi dress as well.

    Ditto on Rachel Zoe she always looks amazing. Maybe overdressed at times but never a fash fail!!

  5. Awwww poor Jessica. Her fashion line is doing so well but she's just a hot mess some times. But yes, Rachel Zoe takes the cake. Such a posh mama.

  6. Rachel looks beautiful. I love seeing her smiling. Motherhood has made her so much more beautiful. Jessica on the other hand... you nailed it. That's gotta be the rug.

  9. Just because you're pregnant does not mean you have to dress like you have no personality. What was she thinking. Perfect choices. You crack me up.

  10. I love your voice. These post are always my favorite. You could seriously be a comedian. I was laughing out loud during that last segment. xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  11. Jessica is always a question mark to me. Rachel on the other hand is striking in his own. I agree with both. You're hilarious.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I agree with you! Rachel Zoe is a constant source of inspiration to me and I love her style. Jessica Simpson could have done so much better than this.

  18. Oh Jess Simpson isn't very fashionable to begin with, yet alone in maternity wear

    ReplyDelete
  19. Love what Rachel Zoe is wearing! Just beautiful!

    But then Jessica... Oh boy. I get that the whole, er, outfit (?) Might have felt comfortable in the safety of her home/hotel room, but really... That just is too grandmother for a young pretty mom like her.

    This was so great post once again, I truly enjoy these ;) Have a fantastic day, dear! xoxo

  33. You really make me laugh hun!!

    I think Rachel Zoe is fabulous, I totally love her sense of style and always dip into the book that she published for ideas.

    On the Jessica front, this is where I laughed out loud! Orthopedic shoes they most definately are, your hilarious, i love the way you write as well as your style!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Always love Rachel Zoe, but what in the world is Jessica wearing? I know she's pregnant and all but this is just terrible.

    xo L.

    ReplyDelete
  38. personally, I don't like the drop waist line on Rachel Zoe. she doesn't have much of a shape to begin with and the drop waist cancels out any chance of feminine curve. I love all the shoes though!

    ReplyDelete
  47. hahahahaha. I love everything you said about Jessica. You have such a way with words. Very funny.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Though Rachel Zoe is just stunning, I think Mr. Atwood totally steals the spotlight here. And so do his incredible shoes. I want to love Jessica but there are clearly chic ways to sport a baby bump and this is so not one of them.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Zoe is looking great here, soft and pretty...not surprised she shed the baby weight in less then a hot second :)

  50. I like the black dress, but I don't think it is that special either
    I do completely agree that the grey cardigan is simply very ugly

  54. Rachel Zoe = love :)
    Jessica Simpson = hate!
    I swear I think Jess needs to learn how to dress...

    ReplyDelete
  55. Rachel always looks amazing!

    I hope this was a one time only fashion mistake by Miss Simpson, she usually looks so chic. Just because you're pregnant doesn't mean you need to get sloppy.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Those teal ankle boots are perfection. Actually, all of them are.

  63. I love Rachel Zoe's carpet ensemble as well. It's stunning without being over-the-top. I WANT HER DRESS. I really hope though that her jacket wasn't real fur. That would suck!

    As for Jessica Simpson, wow. She's a pretty girl, but she needs to dress better. After all, she is a fashion mogul.

    P.S. Thanks for stopping by my blog, love.

    Lots of love, B
