Tara Maria Gonzalez is a style writer covering celebrity looks, fashion trends, and everything you don’t need but probably should buy. She’s been writing for InStyle since 2019 and has previously worked as a fashion writer and editorial producer at Coveteur, where she wrote fashion features and produced and styled numerous photoshoots, as well as Glamour, where she was the founding commerce editor who helped launch the shopping vertical.


Tara was the style commerce writer at InStyle from 2019 to 2022.

She previously worked as the fashion editor and editorial producer for Coveteur, where she wrote fashion features, market pieces, and trend reports while producing all photoshoots and assistant styling. She then went on to become the founding commerce editor at Glamour, where she helped launch the commerce content vertical.

Tara graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Creative Writing, and decided to pursue fashion journalism after a short career working in production design for films and TV shows. In 2017 she decided to chase her dream of working as a fashion writer, and has never looked back since she can now consider shopping a part of her job.

While writing for InStyle, Tara covered everything from Rihanna's most recent outfit to the strange controversial trends the internet can't stop complaining about. You could often find her musing about celebrity's pantsless date night looks for InStyle's signature Look of The Day series, or obsessing over multiple things on sale (that she definitely doesn't have room in her apartment for) at Nordstrom.


Tara graduated from The University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor's in English with a focus on Creative Writing.
