Lesley M. M. Blume is a New York City-based author, columnist, and journalist; she is also The Huffington Post's contributing style editor.
As a journalist, Blume began her career at The Jordan Times in Amman and Cronkite Productions in New York City. She later became an off-air reporter for ABC News Nightline with Ted Koppel in Washington, DC. Now writing full-time, Blume covers culture, politics, and fashion (and sometimes the thorny politics of fashion). Her articles have appeared in many publications, including The Wall Street Journal, Vogue, Slate, Mediaite, and The Daily Beast.
She was recently hand-picked by Vogue magazine to be a founding member of the Vogue 100, an organization “of influential decision makers and opinion leaders known for their distinctive taste in fashion and culture, [and who] personify the rising influence of women over the past several decades.”
