Since 1995 she has been the fashion editor of the Washington Post where she covers the news, trends, and business of the international fashion industry. She also writes a weekly culture column. In 2009, she began covering Michelle Obama and the cultural and social shifts stirred by the first African American family in the White House and is the author of Michelle: Her First Year As First Lady, a joint project with the Washington Post.
