The Hollywood Reporter announced Tuesday that it has hired fashion writer and critic Booth Moore as senior fashion editor for the print magazine and its online fashion vertical, Pret-a-Reporter. In addition to contributing to the print edition, Moore will direct the fashion vertical and its video content. She'll also co-produce the publication's yearly fashion and beauty lists, including the influential "25 Most Powerful Stylists" ranking, with style editor Carol McColgin. Pret-a-Reporter was launched in 2013 as a daily style destination dedicated to the intersection between Hollywood and fashion.
“Booth’s well-respected and long-cultivated expertise on fashion and beyond in Los Angeles is unparalleled — we’re truly excited to welcome her to the Style team," said deputy editor Jeanie Pyun in a statement.
Moore joined the The Los Angeles Times in 1998 as a party and style columnist and became its very first fashion critic in 2004. She co-founded the newspaper's luxury-focused weekly section, Image, and left in November 2015. "I've long admired The Hollywood Reporter and can't wait to work with the team on expanding the fashion and lifestyle coverage," said Moore in an e-mail. "What Janice Min [chief creative officer and president of The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group] has done is really inspiring and I know I will learn so much from her."
