Rachel Zoe - This can't be the face of a 36 year old.


***Update***

Reader comment from Habitually Chic told me to go see Rachel photos from style.com... that *maybe* RZ had some work done. I think so. What do you guys think? I think she is looking more vampy and pulled-back. They eyes are more catlike and weird. But she looks better smooth than like the wrinkled old bag she was before. Here's the allegedly new face:





*****



I actually thought her moment was over, and then the NY Times Magazine prints a 5-page article on Rachel Zoe, celebrity stylist.

That face. It's the face you get if you've chain-smoked Lucky Strikes since middle school and used your head as a catcher's mitt. (Confidential to Zoe: It's called sunscreen, La Mer, and eating a big fat burger every now and then, Rachel... as you age you can either keep your ass or your face, and you should pick door #2, my friend.)

She says she's 36 and I could hardly pay attention to the rest of the article because there is NO WAY your face can look like this at 36.

Harvey Weinstein, the former Miramax honcho who is sleeping with one of the designers of Marchesa, bought the rights to Halston and now Zoe's on board trying to resurrect the disco-fabulous brand. Good luck. Her style is so specific and so 2.5 years ago, she's going to have to get people to buy into her drippy, coke'd-up look all over again and then make us swallow Halston. Not so sure about that.

I do want her shoes & jewelry, though. Bitch has closets that will make you weep with envy.

OMG I just read the article, there weren't any pics of her upclose thoguh. She does look much older than she says she is but more than that, after reading the article... I thought she was kind of yuk. I know that's not too nice but I was actually feeling ill when they quoted her. Changing her sunnies when the sun changed, "what"? Kind of scary to think she's dresses young girls, or that they may admire her !!

:) Yeah, she sounded quite vapid in the story. Not to mention, I cringed when she doubled-cupped her ICED TEA, because she "can't stand condensation." Give me a break.

haha!
Those close-ups remind me of old, male politicians!
I don't know why...

This is what happens when people go on the crystal meth diet. Bad Skin - Bad teeth - Skeletal physique - and plenty of energy to run around with starlets as long as the meth keeps flowing.

Yes, sunscreen would've done the trick! How unfortunate...

Bring on the fashion, shoes and accessories!

Wait, didn't Anna Wintour admit Rachel Zoe was more important than Anna Wintour?

omg, try like 46!!! How pathetic it is to have to lie about your age, especially when you look your age. It's hard to hide 10 years, it shows on everyone. People say a President really ages, then they show pictures of the man 8 years previously. Well, hey. look in the mirror, everyone ages 10 years in 10 years. I didn't read this article, I wonder if it's on their web site?

You have to check out the photos of her from fashion week on www.style.com, she definitely had some work done on her forehead and was no longer hiding it behind the bangs. She was the talk of the town. Very funny!

i read this too. couldn't get those silver platforms or her scary skeletor visage out of my head. also, i'm so tired of that weird pigeon toed thing that these girls have affected (see the shot of her trying on some vest with the platform espadrilles)

and btw, when i moved to so cal, my ex and i both noticed that everyone looked INCREDIBLY sun damaged. it's really evident when you come here from another city. so, she actually could be in her late 30s. i've seen it here. it comes from being a tanorexic and living in such close proximity to the ocean. and i would agree too, heavy on the smoky treats from age 13 on.

OOoooh Habitually Chic - - I think you are right! Her eyes look different, too. I am posting another photo so we can vote on it...

Yikes. She needs to eat an entire avacado stat.

okay, i have to say, I laughed my ass off reading this thread. Thanks Decorno! Agree she looks like a hag. My mother is in her late 60s and has less wrinkles! However, please note the lighting in the two shots. Strong light can "erase" or wash out harsh lines on a face. (I'm not saying she hasn't had something done, but the difference in lighting can account for how shitty she looks in the first photo.) The other thing is heavy makeup use can make people look really old. Ladies, lay off the concealer-foundation-powder combo! It only make you look older! Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!

You know, I'd put money on her being bulimic. Sadly, a few of my dear friends suffered from the condition and after many years, bulimia makes a person's cheeks puffy in a quite distinctive way (see Renee Zellwegger, too). So, I guess the advice is eat, keep the food down, and avoid the sun and ciggies.

In English class, one girl Cheap WoW Gold said never give up when discussing. It just reminded me something about myself.WoW Gold Maybe it is wow power leveling something about love.WoW Gold My love, which began on July 3rd of WoW Gold 2005 and finished on August wow leveling 23rd of 2008, taught me many things. wow leveling It is not a pleasant world of warcraft power leveling thing to look back on world of warcraft power leveling that. But I know I world of warcraft power leveling must learn something from it,world of warcraft leveling no matter what it is, world of warcraft leveling happiness or sorrow.Our love did not go on so smoothly and we went through many things.

Quit hatin'. I like her steez and obviously many others do as well or she wouldn't be so big. Leave her alone I'm sure we all have flaws that we wouldn't want people to talk shit on. And if she did get work done maybe its because everyone's shit talking made her insecure! Focus your energy on more positive things people. You don't know her or her life!

I keep wondering how she could possibly be talking about having a baby on her show because I thought she was about 50! If she is under 40, she looks like hell...crystal meth indeed.

yeah she does look older so what shes fab. and dresses the best in the game. do yu guys expect her to be perfect? or then there would be nothing to discuss.. and shouldnt yu guys be happy she got work done? because yu just complained about how she looked withoutthe surgery? uu should just think its great for her that she did fix it...... if someone was talking about all of yur ugly faults,that i know yu all HAVE, how would u feel?

well shes fab making millions and yuguys are mad nd non factors clearly haha

I was was wondering if I was the only one thinking she was looking WAY TOO SKINNY and OLD.....sorry Rachael, you seem so nice. But I was wondering if Rogers new scruffier look was so he wouldnt look so much younger than her, like he had been.
