About the Author
Booth Moore has been an Olympic-level shopper since she was a schoolgirl in New York City. She was still in high school when she nabbed a summer job as a fashion assistant at YM magazine. After graduating from Duke University, she began her career in that city of the sensible suit, Washington, DC, at The Washington Post. Moore joined The Los Angeles Times in 1996, where she logged tens of thousands of miles as the paper’s Fashion Critic, covering the runways in New York, London, Milan and Paris (and stopping to shop along the way). She interviewed style-world leaders from Victoria Beckham to Michael Kors, Tory Burch to Tom Ford. She left The Times in 2015, is now the Senior Fashion Editor at The Hollywood Reporter, and has contributed to the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Town & Country, and Conde Nast Traveler, among other publications.
She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two cats, and an overflowing closet room that could one day be a pop-up store.
