Beneath her white tuxedo jacket and black shift dress is her seven-month bump -- which on someone else could pass for a big lunch. If the physical evidence is hard to find, Zoe isn't shy about her impending motherhood. She initiates the conversation during a phone interview last week, though she stops short of divulging if it's a boy or a girl. Either something changed over the weekend or she is terrible at keeping secrets, because the pronouns fly on Monday. "It all depends on his arrival," she says patting her stomach. Not five minutes later Berman swoops down, kisses her belly and declares, "It's a little boy." A boy! Who will she dress up in her archive of vintage Lanvin?
Um, us? We nominate ourselves to be dressed up in Rachel's Lanvin, please.
Zoe's own, '70s-ish-chic clothing collection will be priced from $250 to $700 and includes shoes and handbags (upon seeing one, Rachel exclaimed, "I'm going to scream. Did I just scream?") Although no retailers have stocked up yet, she plans to have the duds on the shelves of specialty and department stores.
According to the fashion newspaper, all this and more (including Brad's replacement "Mandana, a leggy brunette") has been captured for season four of Bravo's "The Rachel Zoe Project." But don't expect to see Zoe at any fall 2011 shows:
"I've been asked to slow down," she says. "But to be totally honest, it's kind of next to impossible when you're planning your show and launching your collection, and in the middle of award season." Her idea of taking it easy is watching "Twilight" at night instead of working. Zoe claims she hasn't had a minute to shop for baby clothes, although, "I'm also Jewish," she says. "So I'm a little superstitious. I've been sent a lot of gifts and things and my team just hides them."
