Laura Brown Is The Funniest Woman In Fashion

16 years ago, Australian journalist Laura Brown packed up her life and moved to New York.  She arrived seven days before September 11 but despite a terrifying start to her new life, she’s never looked back. Now, as the Editor in Chief of InStyle Magazine, Laura is one of the most powerful women in fashion. She made the overly earnest Gwyneth Paltrow make fun of herself, put funnyman Stephen Colbert on the cover and danced with Oprah. So how did a girl from Camden end up in one of the most coveted positions in the world?
