I'm a freelance journalist, based in Hong Kong as of 2017. I cover lifestyle, culture, fashion, restaurants, luxury, real estate and travel.

A longtime contributor to New York Magazine and former columnist at VanityFair.com, I also write for Cosmo, Town & Country, Vogue.com, Harper's Bazaar, Elle, Bloomberg, the New York Times and Page Six, among many others.

I was previously based in New York, covering entertainment, celebrities and red carpet events, like the Met Gala and Game of Thrones premieres. My interviews revealed that David Beckham's motorcycle riding terrifies his wife; Karl Lagerfeld's cat, Choupette, loves flying on private jets; Carla Bruni wakes up Sarkozy in the middle of the night to listen to new songs she's written; and George Clooney's space suit in Gravity was almost as uncomfortable as his Batsuit. Alec Baldwin swore to me he'd never tweet again (he did), and Jared Kushner was furious with me after I broke the story of his budding romance with Ivanka Trump.
