  • Laura worked as the Editor in Chief of InStyle beginning in 2016, and she ushered the magazine vibrantly through a divisive administration, social unrest, and an unprecedented pandemic.
  • She reinvented InStyle, embracing a diverse, engaged readership with the slogan, “Everybody’s In.”
  • Laura sits on the boards of ‘me too.’, The Fashion Trust U.S., SeeHer, Foot Soldiers Park, and the One Love Foundation.


Laura joined InStyle as the Editor in Chief in 2016, expanding the brand’s sphere, and giving voice to new fashion, celebrity, and activist leaders, particularly with the bold platform, ‘Badass Women.’ Her social media sensibility extended the voice of InStyle beyond the page. Under Laura, InStyle was the first American fashion magazine to ban fur and exotic skins in 2018 and the first to sign the 15% Percent Pledge. Her unifying voice – most literally on her podcasts – attracts women from all worlds with an inclusive, warm, and witty worldview.

Before joining InStyle, Laura was the Executive Editor of Harper’s BAZAAR.


Laura earned her B.A in Arts and Communication from Charles Sturt University in New South Wales, Australia.
