Joe Zee is leaving Elle after seven years: He’ll be the new editor-in-chief and executive creative officer of Yahoo Fashion, the company announced today after weeks of speculation. In the new role, he’ll lead the new Yahoo Fashion “digital magazine,” as well as create a video series, original programming, and special events for Yahoo’s fashion and beauty channels. He’ll also assume the role of editor at large for Yahoo Beauty, which Bobbi Brown will helm. "I’ve spent more than two decades speaking to women through magazines,” Zee said in a press release. “What’s so exciting about Yahoo is that I can inspire and connect with hundreds of millions more women, and bring them the magic of the fashion world in ways they haven’t yet experienced." He'll apparently start this summer.
