Pelayo Diaz Zapico may be considered "the Adonis" of fashion blogging, but don't let his good looks fool you. There's more than meets the eye to the Kate Loves Me blogger. One of the draws to his popular site for many a fashionista goes beyond his admirable physique, which becomes a beautiful backdrop to a fashion-forward personal style captured in candid photos. In addition, the fashion student documents his attendance to party invites on fashion's social scene as well as provides a first-hand account of some of London's best fashion shows around town.

As quoted from the book "Fashion Blogs" in June of 2010:
Why did you decide to start Katelovesme? "I needed to tell a story, my story. Not only in a visual way, though I write less nowadays. I like to receive and read comments and somehow learn from it, though it's often more laughing than learning. My main focus is to keep a little diary of my opinions, parties, and inspirations. I mix stuff I take seriously with stuff I couldn't care less about, confusing other people and sometimes even myself. A blog is an instrument to deal with others' opinions, without letting them influence you negatively. For me, every single one of us is amazing. No matter what someone else says."

In addition to this site, Zapico, or "Prince Pelayo" as he's affectionately known in the blogosphere, also created Seen at Kate Loves Me to offer up his gently used wears and recently, his own fashion line. But the question still remains: why name your blog after Kate Moss?
"I'm a huge Kate Moss fan, but it was too evident to use that in my blog title," said Pelayo in an interview. "It would be nice if somehow she loved me back."
Well if she doesn't many others do. And for everyone else, its only a matter of time.
