America’s Got Talent begins its semi-final round while More to Love goes home with the final four. Also, SheKnows also looks at the fabulous Rachel Zoe Project!
Rachel Zoe Project recap
Fashion Week, such a bore. Rachel Zoe’s assistant Taylor is over it. She gets dragged to NY the week before Oscars and then she’s expected to spend her time styling a magazine shoot for Jennifer Garner. Isn’t that her job?
Isn’t she always complaining that she never gets to style anyone without Rachel directing every move? In the end though, it turns out that all of the carefully chosen outfits and accessories won’t
even be seen because it’s just a head and shoulder beauty shot.
Now that would make me royally mad, to all that work for nothing. Sounds like Taylor and Rachel are headed for a showdown in the next episode of The Rachel Zoe Project.
As much as we love fashion on TV, we seem to love cakes even more. Last night I watched the newest cake competition series The Ultimate Cake-off and my opinion is still the same as the
first time I watched it — it’s missing something.
Maybe it’s because they use teams of four and not two people that makes it harder to follow the detail?
In this episode, the teams had to make a cake for a pirate party. One poor contestant watched as half of his five-foot cake fell away like chunks of a glacier falling into the sea. It was so
heart-wrenching and yet it wasn’t enough to perk up this slow-moving series. Cool cakes, though, including one that had cannons shooting edible glitter.
