Former L.A. Times Fashion Critic Booth Moore Joins THR

She took the buyout last fall.

Last fall, Booth Moore was among the many eligible Los Angeles Times staffers who elected to accept a Tribune Publishing buyout offer. Today, the next full-time chapter of her career has been formally announced.

Moore is joining our sister publication The Hollywood Reporter as senior fashion editor, where she will oversee content for both THR and the portal Pret-a-Reporter. From today’s announcement:

Moore will report to Jeanie Pyun, deputy editor, and Tom Seeley, senior vice president, digital media. Booth will also work alongside Style editor Carol McColgin in shaping the content of THR’s franchises “25 Most Powerful Stylists,” “Top 25 Red-Carpet Designers” and “25 Best Beauty Moments.”

“Booth brings an incredible breadth of experience and industry-insider perspective,” Seeley said. “Her expertise is essential to amplifying our groundbreaking style coverage in print and across our digital verticals as we deliver entertainment’s smartest and most comprehensive coverage.” Adds Pyun: “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.”

Booth wrote a book in 2014 about Juicy Couture and is currently at work on another tome covering worldwide shopping patterns.
