If you’re not familiar with Joe Zee, you’re about to be. The much-loved creative director for Elle magazine, and one of the few voices of reason on MTV’s reality show, “The City” — where he had to contend with the likes of scheming socialite Olivia Palermo, ugh — Zee is heading back to television once again. He stars in the Sundance Channel’s new show “All On the Line,” where he’ll help young designers shape and sell their struggling lines. We spoke with Zee about the show, his creative vision, and what makes some designers succeed where others fail. Keep reading »
Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Joe Zee. But if you watch “The City,” Elle magazine’s creative director comes across as fun but a little bit of a hard-nose. Here, though, in this hilarious video, we get to see another side of Zee, making fun of himself. For some reason, Zee decided it would be a good idea to meander through the streets of Manhattan during a heatwave looking for the zoo and wearing a giant faux-fur suit from Chanel’s fall-winter runway show. It’s Yeti Zee! Watch as Joe sunbathes his fur, gets a hairball, and tells everyone his hair is couture. [Racked] Keep reading »
Fashion insiders Reality TV fans have been buzzing about Whitney Port‘s Whitney Eve fashion collection since it debuted. And while filming her reality show, “The City,” Whitney had the opportunity most young fashion designers only dream about — she showcased her collection for Joe Zee and Anne Slowey, two big-wigs over at Elle. Sadly, Whitney Eve failed to impress. Anne tried to make Whitney feel better about her efforts, which Joe dubbed “items” not a collection, by telling her that Alexander Wang started small, with one sweater. Then, Joe countered with: “It was one hell of a sweater, though.” Boo-yah! Keep reading »
Over at Elle, Creative Director and Fashionisto Joe Zee has had an epiphany. Complains a fashion editor to Zee, “He won’t understand that it’s all about my new draped devore velvet Balenciaga dress right now. He’ll only think I’m wearing curtains,” as she laments (oh boo hoo) her first-date outfit choices. And then it hits Zee: Women dress differently for guys than they do for girls. You don’t say? It may have taken Zee a while to figure this out but he gets it now, explaining, “It’s a simple fact: He’s Just Not That Into Your Skirt.”
And so Zee enlists hot man Andy Samberg to face-off in a fashion duel of “date looks” to see if Elle editors prefer Zee’s conceptual high-fashion stylings, or if they vote for Mr. Dick in a Box’s horndog looks. The results? Both hilarious and surprising! Keep reading »
Back in August I told you “Stylista” would be a must-watch for us at The Frisky, but now I’m not so sure. As I watched “ANTM” last night, I was inundated with promos for “Stylista,” and the CW even aired an unnecessary special preview 10 minutes before the show began. I still wasn’t sure I actually wanted to watch it because I don’t think the world needs another reality show in which self-absorbed, talentless bitches compete for a prize that really should go to someone more deserving. I did watch it ultimately because there wasn’t much else on and will now fill you in on the cat fighting and the pointless assistant tasks. Keep reading »
