Attack Of The Zobots: The Cautionary Tale Of Size Zero

In the 2000s, a one-size body ruled them all; thin and waifish. A literal size 0. And according to a lot of people, there is one person to blame for that. Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe.

In this episode, Holly explains to Em who the 'Zobots' were, how Rachel defined not only 2000s fashion but also dress sizes, and what happened to Misha Barton at Nicole Richie's infamous Memorial Day BBQ...

One story, two generations, so much WTF.
