Joe Zee at the Emmy Awards

If you've watched The City (and I'm not saying that I have), you know who Joe Zee is. As the Creative Director at Elle, he pretty much runs the show and is responsible for most of their incredible fashion spreads. Extra tapped Mr. Zee to be their special fashion correspondent this past weekend at the Emmy Awards, making him an even more recognizable on-air personality (and a refreshing alternative to Joan Rivers' babbling). This comes just a few days after Nina Garcia was quoted as telling The New York Times that the role of the fashion editor has changed. "Now you have to wear many hats, and whoever tells you differently is wrong. Now you’re on TV, whether you want it or not," she said. So what are we to make of these ever-changing rolls? Do we want them to be this close? This accessible? Is it making it easier for us to experience fashion and learn about style so that we can develop our own? Or are these blurred lines just a sign that everyone wants to be a celebrity and magazines really are dying?
