As always the looks on the red carpet at last night's Grammys were a bit hit and miss. Rihanna looked sexy but sophisticated in a black Giorgio Armani gown, Gwyneth Paltrow looked great in a black dress from Stella McCartney and so did Taylor Swift who wore a gold Zuhair Murad couture gown. Unfortunately outfits from Katy Perry, Fergie and Jessie J were disappointing.
The big winner on the night was Adele who looked beautiful in a black sequined Giorgio Armani gown and quite rightly walked away with six awards.
Today Rachel's Zoe's right hand man, Brad Goreski, announced that he's moving on and going alone from next month. But don't worry, the split was amicable. “I love Rachel and she’s taught me everything I know," Goreski told People. "But there’s a point where either I do it now or I’ll never know what it’s like to spread my wings and soar.” Despite having a messy split, Taylor Jacobson is now stylingKate Beckinsale since leaving Zoe so I think it's safe to say that Brad will be okay.
According to popeater.com, the split was actually far from amicable. A source allegedly told the gossip website that, "Brad was sick of doing all the work while Rachel got all the credit," a fashion insider tells me. "While Rachel feels used by Brad. She feels as if she taught him everything and the second he got a chance to leave her high and dry he did."
As the website points out, this is a far cry from what the pair have said since the announcement was made. "He did this with such class and elegance," Zoe told People magazine, with Brad adding, "I hope she'll continue to teach me more and more."
Whether it really is a publicity stunt or not, Rachel Zoe's recent outburst on her former employee Taylor Jacobson has sent rumours flying. While Zoe is seen bitterly saying "The last thing I want to hear is something good about Taylor," on the preview for her Bravo reality show, it seems Jacobson is doing quite well for herself, to spite Zoe.
Dealing with the rumours can't have been easy, but since leaving her position as Zoe's right hand girl, Jacobson has successfully set up her own business, gained a credible list of celebrity clients and reeled the work in on editorials and even a Nickelodeon television promo. In an interview with The Cut, she speaks about self employment, the latest trends and gives advice for wannabe stylists, with not even a bad breath of her ex-boss. We congratulate you, Jacobson, for your professionality.
In another twist to the Rachel Zoe - Taylor Jacobson saga, last week it was revealed that Kate Beckinsale has hired Zoe's former assistant as her personal stylist. According to reports, the actress' wardrobe at the Cannes FIlm Festival was all down to Jacobson. As Beckinsale was a former client of Zoe's it looks like this drama is set to continue for the foreseeable future.
