Joe Zee, star of The City and Creative Director of Elle, is in LA this week. He hosted an event called "Hit the Road, Text Later" with Ciara as part of California's campaign to stop texting while driving. (Which, after texting my way up and down the state of California while driving for a month I can attest is a major problem. I'm still amazed I never crashed.) However, during this past week Joe tweeted from a text message that his car was playing office. Then he took this picture of a woman's foot hanging out of a car, while in his own vehicle. Then he took this picture of traffic, from inside the tunnel in which he was stuck traffic. And then this one of a pretty posh Rolls Royce in which you can actually see Joe's side mirror -- all actually texted into Twitter. Yes, this made us laugh out loud. Maybe he should stick to fashion parties since that's a cause he actually believes in? But seriously, please don't crash Joe! Fashion Week wouldn't be the same without you.
Confessions of a Crazed Fashion Fan: Stalking Joe Zee (But Not In a Creepy Way, Swear)
Meet our summer intern Morgan. She is only 16 but she's probably more die-hard about fashion than you are. Let her prove it to you with her new series, "Confessions of a Crazed Fashion Fan." In Morgan's own words, "Stuck in public school in a small town, every time I read an article or looked at a blog (400 a day to be exact) I felt closer to the world I so desperately craved to be in. My motto quickly became "One day..." I would repeat it to myself every time I read about an amazing event on Style.com or watched a Prabal Gurung fashion show. "One day that will be me." So what happened when my far-off fantasies started to become a reality? Read on. My first exposure to the high fashion world beyond the glossy pages of magazines came on a trip to New York City with my Girl Scout troop. My fellow scouts may having dreaming about spotting a celebrity--but I was crossing my fingers for an editor sighting. And then it happened. On the subway. There he was, through the smudged window of a train: Joe Zee, the Creative Director of ELLE magazine. I recognized him from my late nights studying his "A to Zee" column, and after shoving my group of girls--who thought it was Jay-Z--onto that car, I sat down to stare (literally, stare...he definitely noticed). Though I never worked up the courage to talk him that day, my obsession adoration for the magazine editor only grew over the years.
