Joe Zee Leaving Elle Magazine for Yahoo
The rumors are true. Joe Zee is leaving Elle magazine after seven years as creative director. After weeks of speculation, he has indeed landed the high-powered job at Yahoo. Next month after he leaves Elle, Zee will officially be the editor in chief and executive creative officer of Yahoo fashion and editor at large of the beauty site, working closely with Bobbi Brown. Mr. Zee is one busy man- he is also executive producer and host of Sundance TV‘s series “Revealing” and “All on the Line with Joe Zee.” In addition, he designs clothing for “Styled By Joe Zee” on QVC. “I loved my job at Elle and it took a lot for me to leave,” he said, adding that when Yahoo first approached him in March, he wasn’t convinced. Zee’s successor at Elle has not been named, but they are definitely big shoes to fill. We’ll keep you posted!
