Taylor Jacobson is Leaving Rachel Zoe!

rachel-zoe-project-15Remember last years finale of The Rachel Zoe Project, when Taylor Jacobson said:

“Rachel’s fearful that I’m gonna quit because she knows I’m at my wit’s end. But I’m not, I have too much work ethic, just leave her on a day like the Oscars. I would never just be like ‘screw you’ on that, I would wait till the timing was a little bit more appropriate. Which will never be, so I’ll always be stuck with Rachel because I have.Jewish guilt. Even though I’m not Jewish.” [Stylist.com]

Well that day has come.  According to sources from People.com say she was fired, however, Carrie Gordon, Rachel Zoe’s rep, would only confirm, “Taylor Jacobson is no longer with Rachel Zoe, Inc.”

In Taylor’s farewell email to her contacts she said:

“After four amazing years at Rachel Zoe Corporation, I’m saddened and exhilarated at the same time to announce my departure. After much thought and consideration, I have decided to take the challenging leap to go off and style on my own.” [Fashionista.com]

We sort of saw that one coming…

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Nail Color

People seek different things when it comes to selecting and applying their nail polish.  Some enjoy the salon manicure experience, and some like to get creative with patterns and kits.  Others spend time applying a bottom coat, multiple layers of their chosen color, followed by a top coat (or something in between), all the while being ever so patient with the drying process to create the perfect at home manicure. 
 
And then there’s the girl on the run.  And for that girl, there is Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Nail Color.  The wand is like nothing I’ve ever seen. Compared to the average size, it’s huge and it only takes one coat for full coverage.  The brush is amazingly precise and makes the polish so easy to apply.  (Make sure when dipping the wand, you wipe the excess polish on the edges of the jar, otherwise you may find

Fashion Week Makeover

Starting Spring 2010, NY Fashion Week is moving from Bryant Park to Damrosch Park at Lincoln Center.  This week Stephanie Winston Wolkoff was named Director of Fashion Week reporting to the President of Lincoln Center, Reynold Levy.

“We see Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week coming to Lincoln Center as an opportunity to welcome the design community. For Lincoln Center, this partnership is a natural one that we want to fully embrace, and because our campus of 16 acres has so many different places in addition to the tents for fashion shows, we want to make sure those spaces…are as welcoming and as inviting as we possibly can for the design community,” said Levy.

Considering how hard the news of Fashion Week moving out of Bryant Park was for many of us, Lincoln Center has some pretty high heels to fill. Fortunately for Levy, having the former director of special events for Vogue [Winston Wolkoff] on your team is a step in the right direction.

I look forward to what they have to unveil.
