The style editor is known for her strong sense of dress, platinum blonde locks and is often revered as a style icon by those in the industry. Kate has a huge cult following and has inspired numerous blogs that follow her punky style.

Previous to working in the United States, Kate worked for eight years in Sydney at Vogue (Australia) and Harper's Bazaar (Australia). She then returned to the USA where she landed a role at Harper's Bazaar. It wasn't long before she was offered the role of senior fashion editor at Elle and then style director in 2008.

She was raised in a conservative Irish-Catholic family and was surrounded by stylish women. She says her own wardrobe is filled with studs, chains and black skinny jeans. Kate's style is both androgynous and glamourous. Although she thinks of herself as a fashion geek, claiming her style is more "potluck".

Although Kate herself has worked for years in fashion, she likes that there are fresh voices in fashion through blogging and the internet.
