A very pregnant Rachel Zoe has to miss out on New York Fashion Week, which kicks off tonight at Lincoln Center; she is due to deliver a baby boy in March. But pregnancy can't keep an ambitious woman down. She arranged to present her first collection (Fall 2011) to editors in New York in January, and the Duchess thinks her inaugural effort is a good one. It may not win any awards for originality of concept or design, but every piece appears well-designed and looks very wearable and very L.A., plus appropriate for a wide range of ages. Perfect for that "sweet spot" buyer in her mid-30s (aka the Duchess).
