Brad Goreski has just announced that he is leaving Rachel Zoe and her company to strike out on his own.  Goreski told People magazine exclusively, “I love Rachel and she’s taught me everything I know.  But there’s a point where either I do it now or I’ll never know what it’s like to spread my wings and soar.”  He dropped the news a month ago, and there are absolutely no hard feelings.  The famous stylist explained, “He did this with such class and elegance.  I get it.”  No word yet on who his replacement will be on The Rachel Zoe Project, but whoever it is will have some very big shoes to fill.  “No one’s ever going to be Brad to me,” Zoe said.
