A Week in the Highly Caloric Life of Joe Zee

Elle creative director Joe Zee kept track of everything he ate for a week following his return from Paris Fashion Week for our brother blog Grub Street. His diary offers a glimpse into his busy schedule of meetings and parties with celebrities and fashion bigwigs in addition to detailing every calorie he consumed. And unlike the Fashion Week food journal his colleague Anne Slowey kept for us, his is chock full of actual food. Like meatloaf, macaroni and cheese, burritos, quesadillas, frozen margaritas, pasta, and whole bagels with (gasp) butter. His non-food-related activities include styling Julia Roberts for a film premiere, driving out to Sag Harbor (where the chocolate coffee is to die for), hanging out with Michael Kors and Zac Posen, and working off the carbs at a hip-hop dance class at Equinox. No word on what he likes to get down to, but, Joe, if you have a thing for Beyoncé and/or Lady Gaga, you know where to find us.
