11 Start slideshow

Joe Zee has long been a major fixture in the fashion industry—known as much for his killer instinct as creative director at Elle magazine as he is known for his humor and wit. His gifts have paid off big over the past few years, earning him his own Sundance Channel show, “All On the Line,” and now a new post as Contributing Style Editor at members-only shopping destination Vente Privee.

In a video on Vente-Privee’s site, Zee touts the partnership as a great opportunity to bring exciting fashion to everyone. “It’s 100 percent authentic merchandise—directly from the brands—at 70, 80, and sometimes 90 percent off. I mean, who doesn’t what that?” he laughs.  “The fact that we can bring these incredible brands from Italy, from France—that people might not have known about before—is exciting to me!”

Going forward, Zee will be spotlighting his favorite finds throughout the site, as well as offering up a weekly selection of his top Vente-Privee picks. This week, he’s rounding up some of his biggest holiday favorites just for us! Read on to see what Zee has on his shopping list this season.
