This Fashion Editor Will Help You Shop Like a Style Insider

Booth Moore

When Booth Moore graduated from high school, she didn’t want a car or a EuroRail pass, like most of her friends. Instead, she wanted a southwestern-style blanket coat with silver buttons from Ralph Lauren. She didn’t just want to acquire the coat—she wanted to go buy it herself at the Ralph Lauren Mansion on Madison Avenue. As another graduation gift, one of Moore’s friends drew a picture of her wearing that jacket on the cover of the erstwhile YM magazine, where she interned one summer in high school.

To this day, the jacket remains one of her favorite pieces of clothing and it’s still hanging in her closet, as a tribute to how her style has evolved since high school; even the illustration is framed and hanging on a wall in her house.

Moore, the Senior Fashion Editor at the Hollywood Reporter, is arguably one of the most celebrated fashion critics on the West Coast. She made a name for herself during an 18-year stint as the first fashion critic for the L.A. Times. To this fashion insider, shopping isn’t about the final product. It’s about the transactional experience between a customer and a salesperson, the lengths that people go to purchase something, or the reward you feel when you finally acquire something you’ve been dreaming of.
