Style Notes: Brad Goreski
Brad Goreski might be best known as stylist Rachel Zoe’s dapper assistant-cum-shrink, who, along with Zoe’s husband, Roger, helped steer her self-titled Bravo show to monumental viewership. Now Goreski has graduated to the top of the reality ranks with his own eponymous show, “It’s a Brad Brad World,” which premiered on Bravo last Monday (a second episode airs tonight). The series follows the budding stylist as he builds his very own brand, with gigs styling magazine editorials, celebrity clients, and more.
A bow tied Goreski (above) took a break from his on-camera duties to discuss his love of Louboutins, his despair over “deep-v” T-shirts, and his penchant for all things shiny and bright.
