B&W Boudoir: In the June issue of Elle, Rachel McAdams and the magazine’s creative director Joe Zee reinterpret Catherine Deneuve’s look in “Repulsion,” from 1965, by Roman Polanski. “Noir, Now” also features boudoir dressing suggestions, edited by Kyle Anderson. McAdams nails the film-noir vibe and it’s an excellent issue overall, particularly Cintra Wilson’s piece on how learning flamenco changed her life.
“I love movies,” Joe Zee, creative director of Elle, recently told Alex Williams of The New York Times. About a Jennifer Lopez photo in 2008 by Carter Smith, Zee said: “I wanted a Polanski feel about it, so that’s why it was a black-and-white, with that sort of pained, but very glamorous, look on her face.”
Looking forward to Zee’s new reality show, “All on the Line,” which starts March 29 on the Sundance Channel. Read more at http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/17/fashion/17upclose.html.
