Kanye, the Stylist

Comments | | Print

(NEW YORK) Kanye West is slowly but surely taking the fashion industry into his grasp. He loves his front row seats at Marigiela and Hussein Chalayan, he has collaborated with Louis Vuitton, and he’s currently spending a lot of time in Gap’s offices with the company’s creative head, Patrick Robinson. Now, he’s adding another title to his sartorial resume: a big-time magazine stylist. West just styled a shoot for Elle’s October Personal Style issue and worked closely with magazine’s creative director, Joe Zee, in the process. “Kanye, the editor is quite something,” Zee told us last night. “We texted, called, and e-mailed each other for past few months and I absolutely loved working with him. I enjoy people who know how to bring their vision across and Kanye is very specific with what he likes and doesn’t like.”  Zee, however, wouldn’t divulge the mystery girl West actually styled for the shoot. “You’ll just have to be surprised!” he said.
