Lynn Yaeger
Contributing Editor
VOGUE
Lynn Yaeger Info Events
When Lynn Yaeger was a baby, her first words were practically “Take me shopping!” Her love of fashion was apparent as she grew older—by the time she was ready for kindergarten she had declared—no trousers! Only tutus and frocks for me! This fierce defense of individual style has continued to define her over the ensuing decades.

When she grew up, Lynn became interested in writing critically about fashion --which was, you could argue, simply a way to make money to acquire more things. But it worked! And now Lynn, who lives and works in New York City--but enjoys traveling to major capitals and small towns all over the world (especially to visit their antiques shops and flea markets-)-is a contributing editor at American Vogue and also writes about fashion, antique jewelry, travel, and other subjects (even politics!) for many other publications.
