Now some years later, her book presents a different Rachael. There are photos of her at galas wearing glamorous, sleek creations. In setting forth her style guidelines, she presents a lifestyle that is so meticulous and complicated it made me nervous. And yet she seems to be, in print, as being in complete control.
She is talented certainly, but as a petite woman myself, I don't agree that one of her favorite outfits, a long flowing caftan with clunky jewelry is flattering at all. After recently seeing her in such an outfit shopping in LA, she looked tired and matronly. Of course since publication she has had a second child, and trying to be perfect can certainly wear a person out.
Her book is filled with lots of fashion names and ideas, but I found it a bit repetitive. There are lots of cool photos and advice for entertaining, especially if you are a hostess that likes to plan a party weeks in advance, have help and live an elevated lifestyle.
The deal with style is that by nature it's personal. The search for it should always be encouraged, but you can't copy anyone's— especially Rachel's. The fundamental problem I have with Rachel is she is not an original anything— not her style or in her career as a fashion designer. She's like Truman Capote's Holly Golightly, who "isn’t a phony because she’s a real phony. She believes all this crap that she believes."
I wish she had ditched the "advice" aspect of the book and just taken us along on her crazy ride.
