Amy is the recently appointed editor of GRAZIA. She joined the magazine 12 months ago after three years at its sister publication, GRAZIA UK. Having studied fashion journalism in the UK, Amy previously worked at The Daily Mail and wrote the book Wife, Interrupted.
Q. What has been your career highlight to date?
I didn't think anything could top the high of holding a copy of my book for the first time… until I got a copy of the first Grazia I edited. I was a proud 'mum' that week.
Q. Complete this sentence: "If I wasn't an Editor I'd be …"
A yoga instructor. Yes it's corny, but it's my plan B for when I'm worn out from the media grind.
Q. What are your top three 'can't live without' beauty products?
Bare Escentuals makeup which I get sent over from the UK, Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream - I have six tubes on the go in different handbags - and O&M surf bomb sea salt spray.
Q. Describe your number one fashion moment?
Definitely my (first) wedding dress - I was 23 and so worried I wasn't mature enough to pull off a big white number. But Vera Wang came to the rescue…
Q. Who do you draw style inspiration from?
When I lived in London I was a Kate Moss wannabe, but as I've got older and my shape has changed (hello womanly hips) so have my style idols. I love Eva Mendes' street style: a deconstructed look, always nipped in at the waist. She could give a masterclass on hiding problem areas and accentuating your best bits!
Q. Complete this sentence: 'I'd spend my last hundred dollars on…."
Kikki K stationary (my not-so-guilty pleasure) and a new Kate Spade wallet. Both give me a flurry of first-day-at-school, brand-new-kit excitement.
