Gwyneth is looking fantastic lately, and she continues to look fantastic on the cover of Elle's September issue, which the Fashion Spot dug up. We are loving the stripped-down makeup, messy hair, and monochrome black outfit. The styling, courtesy of Joe Zee, has a casual vibe. Boring? Maybe, but we like Gwynnie best when she's being down-to-earth.
Here are some of the highlights from her interview with Mickey Rapkin:
Long before Elle’s Joe Zee found stratospheric success as a stylist, editor, and yes, reality star, he experienced this horrid reality:
As a recent college grad applying to be a fashion editor at WWD, Zee was asked to stage a photo shoot as a test. The results were even more disastrous than any conundrum Bravo or MTV could cook up: first, the location flooded; then, a light fell, exploded, and caught on fire. And his model? A no-show. By the time Zee did damage control and found another model to fit the clothes, the location kicked them out, closing before they’d even shot a single frame.
Needless to say, Zee didn’t get that WWD job, and to this day he “can’t even explain the level of devastation” he felt. So how, then, did Zee become such a force in the fashion world?
