From NBC San Diego:
A week before the season premiere of his show “All on the Line,” the dashing and always gracious Joe Zee took some time out of his busy schedule to talk to us about food, fashion… and well, more food. As creative director at Elle magazine and now host of his own show, our favorite fashion guy is always on the go, but still has time to fit in his favorite shopping spots and restaurants on both coasts. Find out how Mr. Zee spends his time outside of his kushy midtown office. And, don’t think we let him go without getting just a few style tips.
You’re a busy busy man – how’s life these days? How do you juggle it all?
Two incredible assistants, my Blackberry, Entourage and no sleep.
Have you enjoyed the Hearst cafeteria sushi station in your new digs yet? (And, by the way, have you noticed that all the mirrors in the Hearst Tower make you look great!?)
My first lunch before we even merged with Hearst was with my friend Annebet, an editor from Seventeen magazine and we indulged at the sushi station and it was amazing. In fact, I remember tweeting my lunch experience and a fellow tweeter even wrote back suggesting I…

Now that you’ve seen episode one (or see the rebroadcast schedule if you missed it) of what proves to be a very ‘real’ season of All on the Line with Joe Zee (don’t be sad, there are happy endings ahead!), get to know the fashion guru himself, the man behind the big fancy Elle Magazine desk. Joe Zee dishes on his “naughty” childhood and how he survived his days as a starving college student to “work his way into fashion’s pantheon.”
Here’s what Luaine Lee had to say about Joe Zee in “Fashion Guru Joe Zee learned almost everything on the job.”..
All on the Line with Joe, season 2 premieres Friday, November 25th at 9:30pm.
From NBC’s ThreadNY:
Fashion doesn’t always have a fairytale ending – a point being emphasized on the second season of Elle creative director Joe Zee’s All On The Line, premiering on the Sundance Channel November 25th. On each episode Zee works with one designer to help get their businesses back on track. In the premiere episode, Zee is tasked with counseling Angelo Lambrou – an East Village-based designer who has found success in the bridal market but has struggled to create a viable ready-to-wear business.
Zee tells us, “I want people to realize how hard everybody has to work to make it. That’s what’s really exciting about this show…

“Joe Zee Talks ELLE, Says Snooki Will Never Land Cover”
These days you can’t go anywhere without seeing or hearing about the cast of “Jersey Shore.” But one place you won’t see Snooki is on the cover of Elle magazine.
“I don’t know about Snooki. I’m going to have to pass on that one,” the creative director Joe Zee told me when I asked him if reality stars would ever grace his coveted cover. “We put Lauren Conrad on the cover of our anniversary issue and she did very well. Listen, Kim [Kardashian] is a big cover star out there and if Kim had something going on in her life right now — Kim’s very quiet — I just wish that she would do something, but she’s not doing anything. If she actually did something, we would actually think about Kim for the cover. It’s about new. It’s not about, so much, a reality star. The idea is, are they newsworthy? Is it someone our readers want to read about?”
According to Joe, there is one cover girl who’s always newsworthy…
Joe Zee gives Nicole Miller some advice in season two of All on the Line.
Joe Zee, Creative Director for ELLE, is always one step ahead of the trends. Now, Joe is using his style smarts and eye for detail to guide struggling fashion designers back on the road to success. With insider savvy, a positive spirit and a double dose of tough love, Joe inspires these listless labels to rekindle their creative fire and stay true to who they are. This just may be their last chance to transform cutting room concepts into rack ready fashions. With a make or break presentation to a buyer looming, it’s ALL ON THE LINE. Returning slightly altered, this season Zee will enlist the help of some of his industry friends including American fashion designer, Rachel Roy, socialite and fashion trendsetter, Olivia Palermo, rock musician Adam Lambert, Mark Badgley and James Mischka of Badgley Mischka and model and actress Veronica Webb, to help judge the designer’s ability. Each label will be put to the challenge when Zee asks the team to design quickly and outside of their comfort zones for one of these celebrities, who may or may not be typical of the label’s core clientele.
Personally, I’m looking forward to the episode with guest judge Olivia Palermo, who’s style blog has inspired girl crushes worldwide, and Rachel Roy, who’s closet I would kill to raid. Thefashionspot has its eye on Nicole Miller, proving that even established industry names need some help every once in a while. Miller, whose focused, hard-edged elegance wasn’t attracting enough celebs or style bloggers, enlisted Joe’s help to add some youthful flair to her latest collection…
With everyone in a serious tizzy over the Friday night premiere of season two of All on the Line with Joe Zee, I realize that some readers may not have caught the epic dose of reality that was season one. Luckily, you can watch the entire season on iTunes for $20.What else are you going to do this week in between bouts of turkey-induced stupor? And watching Joe dole out tough love to struggling designers is as addictive as tryptophan is soporific. I got a sneak peek of season two last week and I’m dying to see the rest of the designers that get sent under the gauntlet…
