Our weekly review of Rachel Zoe's new talk show continues. With no signs of losing steam following a strong first two episodes (we're still recovering from Derek Blasberg's vaginal rejuvenation zinger), Fashionably Late with Rachel Zoe's third show was a fashion girl's dream come true.
Zoe reunited with her old pal Nicole Richie, who turned up as spunky as ever in a gold lamé jumpsuit. She was a good sport when Derek Blasberg took lighthearted jabs at her questionable ensembles from the past via a segment called #WhatWereYouThinking, and was quick to defend her looks using hilarious one-liners we won't soon forget. Here are a few of them, along with a favorite from Zoe.
Richie on a super-low-cut lilac situation she wore back in the day: "I was thinking skin is in and purple is the color of royalty."
Richie on wearing a pink Von Dutch trucker hat: "Because truckers don't give a f**k and neither do I!"
Richie on loving Mariah Carey's over-the-top style: "If I were Mimi and I had all those octaves in my voice, I'd be like 'I don't think so!'"
Richie on the kind of old lady she hopes to become: "I'm going to treat everyone like an animal, I'm going to be racist and molest whoever. And I'm going to lie all the time."
Zoe on Lily-Rose Depp's lucky genes: "I just feel like if you open your eyes as a fetus and you see Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis as your parents, you're like 'Hi mom, hi dad. I get to be with you for the rest of my life.'"
