After much anticipation, Brad addressed his fallout with former boss Rachel Zoe and got a-lister’s ready for the Met Ball in the premiere episode.
We were first introduced to Brad Goreski on The Rachel Zoe Project, where we watched Brad grow into his roll as a stylist — and now that he’s out on his own, can he handle the pressure and live up to his own expectations? Or, most importantly, can he carry his own reality show, It’s A Brad, Brad World? The premiere episode let us into Brad’s life, where we met his dogs, his introverted boyfriend Gary and his latest celeb client, Keri Hilson.
I think it’s interesting and realistic to watch Brad work out of his garage and deal with so many boxes and returns — styling isn’t just jet-setting and playing with jewelry, and that’s exactly what Brad’s show displayed. Although, to be honest, I think most people were expecting more of the latter. However, I think it was crucial to see Brad deal with the anxiety and difficulties that come with making it in the business, even when you already have a reality show and working with Rachel Zoe on your resume.
Along with watching Brad attempt to find an assistant, style a shoot for Paper magazine and prep for the Met Ball, Brad also addressed his falling out with Rachel, and seemed sad when he said he still hasn’t seen Rachel’s baby. Unlike Taylor, Brad seems to want to soak up the spotlight and he is very vocal about his split with his former employer — it’s glad to see him hold his own, even if Rachel’s camp may be routing against him.
So, for the roundup of my It’s A Brad, Brad World recap — I definitely think it’s too soon to decide if I totally loved the show, even though I do totally heart Brad. The first episode definitely set up the rest of the season so I think I’ll have to wait and see, although personally, I thought the show was missing something. Granted, Rachel had quite the client list behind her when her show launched, but it was her assistants, Taylor and Brad, that everyone grew to love and found so entertaining — and that’s exactly what Brad needs! Personally, I would love a quick Taylor cameo, (mainly because I’m a sucker for a reunion), but I’ll settle for a new assistant to add some entertainment into the actual styling.
