Rachel Zoe Sparks Controversy With New Fashion Line
Rachel Zoe's new fashion collection reportedly includes a dress identical to one she used for a magazine shoot years ago.
According to blog Fashionista, the pregnant fashion designer - who has styled stars Nicole Richie, Mischa Barton and Anne Hathaway - took liberal inspiration from a dress she used for a US Teen Vogue feature in 2007 and recreated it for her newly-released Rachel Zoe Collection.
For the feature she dressed then-intern Elana Fishman in a black and white sequinned dress, who has now claimed that Rachel was so taken with the dress she bought it after the shoot and has since worn it on her TV show 'The Rachel Zoe Project'.
The dress has been identified as vintage and is from What Goes Around Comes Around in New York City.
Earlier this month Rachel spoke of the pressure she was feeling about releasing her first fashion line, saying she "doesn't want to let people down."
She said: "I'm a Virgo and I'm more - I don't want to say negative - but I'm the girl who thinks no one's coming to my birthday party, no one's buying my clothes, no one's reading my book, no one's watching my show - that's just how I think. The same applies to this. I don't want to let people down. "
