Episode 5 Recap: Oscar Madness Squared


Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

It's Rachel and Rodger's anniversary on Bravo's Rachel Zoe Project—and Lady Pregnant can't get to Fashion Week ? So romantic dinners and rose petals? Nope: Oscar Madness and collaborations to style and Brad is still stabbing Team Zoe in all kinds of backs. Oh, Oscar Madness bonus stress: Rachel Zoe client Anne Hathaway hosted the show (Remember that steaming mess? A stoned stoner and the queen of band camp invading our homes for four hours?) and wore 62 different dresses.

And don't forget, she's a million weeks pregnant and physically-mentally-emotionally breaking down. Cue reality check from visiting sister Pam.

10.) "Goodbye Crazy Bitches!"

9.) "I swear this baby grows by the minute."

8.) "Thank god my Chanel jackets still fit me—or I'd be going naked."

7.) Cough, cough: "I'm basically like Debbie Downer/Typhoid Mary."

6.) On backless dresses: "No! Never cover the back!"

5.) "I don't look cute in a bathrobe—I look like an Oompa Loompa in a bathrobe."

4.) Anne's Oscar looks: "We open with Givenchy and we end with Tom Ford and it! Is! A! Victory!"

3.) "What can be better than having an excuse for using like nine couture dresses by the end of the night?"

2.) "When in doubt go Chanel."

1.) "I look like my clothes are eating me."
