Last week, Rachel Zoe debuted her very first late night talk show, Fashionably Late with Rachel Zoe. As superfans hoped, the 30-minute premiere was littered with Zoeisms and Rachelations, including her desire to twin with the Pope ("I feel like I would just wear a caftan and we'd be so similar").
Episode Two did not disappoint, as Zoe brought both style (here's a closer look at her Balmain number) and smiles, all while comfortably trading zingers with her hilarious co-stars Derek Blasberg and Rodger Berman, and special guest Molly Sims. Blasberg was particularly on fire last night; we've include a few favorite quotes from him and Zoe below.
Rachel on Jennifer Hudson wearing Prabal Gurung for her pre-mass performance: "It's a cape... It's like a chic batman."
Rachel on Rihanna's questionably airport look: "I think we let RiRi do this and she's the only one who can do this."
Rachel on man braids: "It's like they probably didn't shower, and that's okay."
Derek on public breastfeeding: "It's a trend, but don't spill."
Derek on vaginal rejuvenation: "I like a very tapered fit."
