We all know the ins and outs of wardrobe staples — a plain white tee, dark denim, and a timeless LBD come to mind — but the same goes for beauty. We wanted to find out the exact must-have products that our favorite fashion insiders never leave home without: the go-to goodies that instantly put a pep in our most stylish friends’ steps. This week, Joe Zee is revealing his weapon of choice for the perfect skin.
With New York Fashion Week fast approaching and anticipation setting in for another season of everyone’s favorite television premieres, who better to chat with than Elle Creative Director and TV personality Joe Zee? We picked his brain about the recent influx of celebrity designers, his fashion week survival tips, and what it was like to head to Hollywood for season three of his reality show All On The Line.
And her name, of course, is Barbie.
Oh, the things we do for love — and fashion. The spring collections are running straight through Valentine’s Day, which means editors like Elle Magazine’s Robbie Myers and her right-hand-man Joe Zee are scheduled to be working on what’s supposed to be the most romantic day of the year.
Kim Kardashian has been on the cover of pretty much fashion and entertainment magazine in America, and on more than a few around the world. But Elle magazine creative director Joe Zee says the reason you’re not likely to see her on the cover of his magazine is because she just doesn’t do anything.
This was the week celebrities (and normal people) wore lots of Halloween costumes! This was also the week we talked to a few of our girlcrushes (Blake Lively! Alexa Chung! Mindy Kaling!), lamented offensive merchandise, and saw what Courtney Stodden looks like without makeup. Oh, yeah, and Kim Kardashian filed for divorce.
Great news, everybody! On Thursday, the coolest Canadian brand that’s ever been sold in a grocery store opened up shop on New York City’s Fifth Avenue — and to celebrate, the company’s founder Joe Mimran invited fellow Canadian (and former employee!) Joe Zee and a group of us fashion-y writer types to the shop for breakfast.
By now you are more than aware that critics and laymen alike really did not enjoy Kanye‘s very first womenswear collection. Kanye tried to preemptively brush off the haters at his runway show’s afterparty, but that didn’t stop everyone from saying their piece.
Personal style bloggers are a dime a dozen these days — which isn’t at all a bad thing! — but sometimes the same old gets a little, well, old. And that’s why bloggers like Leandra Medine, aka The Man Repeller, are so refreshing. We love her style, but more importantly, we love how effing funny she is! And we’re not alone. Mid-way through interviewing her front row at Nicole Miller yesterday, Joe Zee came bounding up to profess his (and his assistant’s) love.
It takes a village to raise a child, and last night some of the fashion tribe assembled at Lincoln Center to celebrate the next generation of design genius at Elle Fashion Next.
We love Joe Zee for a variety of reasons: he’s Canadian! He’s incredibly friendly! He wears Chanel faux-fur suits around New York City in the middle of July and dirty dances with giant Elmos. He’s basically so awesome he can skip the line at The Met’s Alexander McQueen exhibit and we don’t even begrudge him for it! And now, thanks to an article in this weekend’s New York Times, we know that he was as much of a band geek in high school as he is now a Very Important Fashion Person, also known as a VIFP.
This was the week Justin Bieber wore an offensive t-shirt, Missoni for Target images were released, and Anna Wintour had dinner with Barack Obama. There was also craziness surrounding the Conde Nast elevator Twitter account and the last days of the Alexander McQueen exhibit.
Tonight the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit will close forever. Yes, forever. But the Met is staying open until midnight to accomodate the crowds, and we would like to know just what lengths you’re going to for the once-in-a-lifetime show.
The problem with reality TV is that when the cameras stop rolling, the drama rarely does — or at least that’s how it’s going with Joe Zee‘s new show on Sundance, All On The Line. One of the show’s participants was so unreceptive to Zee’s criticism that he threatened to commit suicide.
When we can’t get the seat we’d like to get at a fashion show, we chalk it up to having only been around for about a year. When Elle magazine creative director Joe Zee can’t get a seat he wants at a show, we get offended.
We hereby implore Joe Zee to quit his day job and dedicate the rest of his life to filming hilarious web videos for us to enjoy as we slough our way through the mid-afternoon slump.
Joe Zee‘s new reality show looks pretty great, so allow us to introduce you to the talented cast of All On The Line. To refresh your memory, the show’s premise is as follows: Zee helps eight semi-established yet struggling designers make their lines a success.
