I still really miss Taylor. I know we haven't caught up with the new season of The Rachel Zoe Project yet, but I'm anticipating it just won't be the same without Tay's dramatic eye rolls. The Cut was lucky enough to catch up with the platinum blonde stylist to chat about life since leaving Zoe headquarters. Some highlights include:
On what she's up to: I’m styling, I’m building my roster of clients — you know, editorials, campaigns, personal shopping for private clients I have. I’m pretty much doing the same thing, just on my own.
Will she return to reality TV?: I don’t know if I’m really cut out to do reality TV. It’s just not the direction I want — I’m so awkward. There’s things on the table, but it’s not my priority.
On working on her own: I was ready. To, like, go off on your own, do it for yourself, have your own clients, have your own ventures. In the terms of, like, getting your world, your accounts set up — like your FedExes — it’s been a lot of work. But I’ve never been happier. I assisted for a long time — serious stylists, actually — and I just felt like it’s time.
Her advice to aspiring stylists: First of all, it’s not glamorous. I feel like people don’t realize that it’s a lot of manual labour — you’re schlepping garment bags, you’re not in the most glamorous locations. But never give up. If that’s your dream, start interning at a PR company.
