We never read American Elle. It just wasn't good: fashion direction was poor and photography was uninspired. Same tired old Gilles Bensimon over and over and over again. Nausiating. But with this September issue the new team and their man in charge Mr. Joe Zee (creative director) get a six star, two thumbs up and a high-five from us. Photography reminds of Italian Vogue (it's too close to Meisel's at times but still in good taste) and the interview with Karl Lagerfeld is BEYOND and a must-read.
Even the Lindsey Lohan bit isn't totally horrible. All in all A+ .... Beats September Vogue and Bazaar - that's for SURE.
