You bitches better love us. Because, while we’re used to meeting reality show contestants, having drinks with them, and then turning around and criticizing them on our blog, we’re not at all used to it when it comes to fashion editors and stylists that we know. Even worse when it’s someone you adore and on whose TV show you made an appearance. Joe Zee, you’re killing us here.
Blake Lively featured in the March 2012 issue of ELLE magazine photographed by Tom Munro and styled by Joe Zee.
PSYCH! No you’re not, Joe! Fortunately, you’re incredibly talented as a stylist and we haven’t yet had that moment where we realize we might have to write something critical about someone we know and like. You best keep up the good work, Mr. Zee. Otherwise you’re going to put us in QUITE the spot.
Anyway, Blake gets the Mr. Zee treatment for Elle and it’s to her enormous benefit. Take notes, girl. Granted, some of the outfits aren’t public appearance- appropriate, but they do make her look sexy as hell. LOVE the pops of blue and green in the jewelry on the cover. Masterful.
