Stylist Brad Goreski was one of the breakout stars of the Rachel Zoe Project and with his departure came new opportunities for advancement.

He also took the time to show guests how to use the eBay apps to sell items easily. We chatted with him about his future plans, Kate Middleton and the celebrity he is dying to dress.
What are your must haves for this summer?
I’m definitely big on printed pants, denim shirts and something with a pop of color (POC). I’m also a big fan of PON (Pop of Neon). Whether it’s a pair of heels, a little cross body bag, a belt.
I also think there is a big shift in headwear with a lot of cool hats out there. We’re seeing them everywhere. My client Jessica Alba just wore a Tory Burch Fedora, Diane Kruger is also wearing them. It’s a cool way to give yourself a bit of sun protection but also make your outfit sleeker and chicer.
What’s in your beach bag?
Not very much actually. Food! Because I always get hungry in the sun. Definitely my iPod, my Versace beach towel with a huge medallion on it and a bottle of water. I’m also in love with California Baby Sunscreen.
What did you learn from having your entire life, good and bad, aired on reality television?
I think I misconceived the way I pictured myself in the world. After the show aired, I thought to myself ‘Oh! I’m actually not the way that I thought I was going to come off,’ because we are so critical of ourselves. I felt I learned a lot about myself through watching the show.
Anything you regret doing or saying on the show?
No not at all. Whatever you put out in the universe is what the cameras capture and that is what will end up on the show. I think people know I have good days and bad days; some days I look good and other days I don’t look good. I always want what is shown to be a true representation of who I actually am.
Any plans of coming out with your own clothing line?
There’s always a chance for anything and I’m not ruling designing a collection out of my plans. There is nothing happening at the moment because I am very focused on working with Kate Spade, my clients and just wrapping up my book tour for Born to be Brad. I have some really great projects coming up that I can’t talk about.
Is there anyone you are dying to dress?
I’d love to dress Diane Kruger for an event. I’m obsessed. Her clothes are really out of control.
What are your thoughts on on Kate Middleton’s style?
She’s stunning. I think she looked beautiful during the Diamond Jubilee. There’s somthing age appropriate about her style and something fashion forward, but she knows the tone of each event. She seems like she has a lot of personality and I think she’s beautiful.
Any advice for Kate?:
Keep the McQueen coming honey!
