RACHEL NAY! Gimme a break, I know nothing about fashion, it was that or "Zoe No!" (Photo: Getty Images) This afternoon the beautiful people (and the wannabes) are heading to Gagosian Gallery to check out the debut of a Rachel Zoe-designed Halston, followed by a suitably hip fete at Don Hill's, which you're probably not invited to. But though the reviews of Zoe's homage to the '70s icon won't be in until tomorrow, some of the fashion tribe are already sniping that Zoe is wearing out her welcome with the A-List. Zoe, not content to be a cog in Harvey Weinstein's burgeoning fashion empire, has also been flitting about fashion parties this week with a camera crew in tow, as she films a pilot for her Bravo show, out this summer.
Late last week Zoe hit The Cinema Society party for the debut of the documentary Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton at the Mercer Hotel, where she was spotted plaguing exhausted designers like Jacobs and Tommy Hilfiger with her microphone. She will continue to film at the Tents and at events throughout the week, which fills some style setters with ennui. As one source put it, "People are hoping she will fail. She might be a good stylist, but she's intent on making it as a big celebrity in her own right, and she just doesn't have the charisma. She rubs people the wrong way." Another miffed fashion insider told Radar, "She may have recovered from that whole Nicole Richie debacle, but it's highly unlikely that she's going to be the next big thing in television. She has zero presence."
We've also received twitters from Hollywood that Zoe recently split with the agency that represented her after she exhibited "diva-like" behavior. The moral of the story: should you spot Raisin Face in the front row, keep your claws sharpened.
