    Stylist and opinionated fashion maven Rachel Zoe is catching serious heat for what some are calling a lack of diversity in her most recent fashion show. Zoe's pre–New York Fashion Week preview presentation of her upcoming Fall/Winter line was recently held in Los Angeles and one eagle-eyed Instagram fan picked up very quickly on one noticeable issue: There was only one model of color hired to walk in Zoe's presentation show.

    Instagram user diet_prada picked up on the issue and posted a photo set reacting to what some might perceive as a noticeably problematic issue (especially when many other designers are making a point of hiring models of all ethnicities, genders, ages, and body types for their shows right now) regarding the ratio of white models to models of color.
