Rachel Zoe Allows Herself to be Fattened
It's common knowledge that celebrities are digitally whittled down to look skinnier in magazines. But being made to look fatter? That's all Rachel Zoe (celebrity stylist, soon-to-be reality TV star).
For the September issue of Harper's Bazaar, Zoe, 37, allowed the mag to enlarge, and retouch, her, emaciated-looking, size 0 physique to a size 8. Zoe's weight has made her made her an easy target for certain bloggers, who occasionally refer to her as an "anorexic," "pill peddler."
"We've had Audrey Hepburn, we've had Twiggy, we've had Veruschka, we've had Kate Moss. I'm trying to figure out why I am to blame for skinniness," Zoe says in Bazaar.
(So those egomaniac rumors might be true.)
Whatever, she should have been upped to a size 16...or (just done it old school and) worn a fat suit. Cause as is, she doesn't look all that different. And I'm still trying to figure out why she did it at all.
Oh yeah, her new Bravo reality show--The Rachel Zoe Project--premieres September 8. A half-hour preview is currently airing on repeat. And from what I've read, it actually looks promising, you know in a guilty pleasure sort of way.

FYI: Zoe wasn't always so thin. In fact, part of what's so shocking about her current waif-like figure is that it's the result of rapid weight loss that occurred in the last few years. While her weight was on the decline, clients like Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie underwent eerily similar bony transformations. Hence the rumors about anorexia and pill pushing.
