That Perfect Dress? Yours. (And It’s Marchesa!)

  The Rue holiday party is fast approaching, and the entire office is abuzz with one seemingly simple question: What are you wearing? But – as any girl can tell you – that question is most definitely not simple. Finding that perfect dress is far easier said than done. Unless, of course, you have the help […]

At Work with Alvin Valley

Alvin Valley was crowned “The King of Pants” by Women’s Wear Daily in the mid-nineties thanks to his amazing trousers – beloved by women of all ages and sizes.

Dinner with Nima T.

I’ve known designer Nima Taherzadeh since he was knee-high to a grasshopper, as they like to say. OK, slight exaggeration. But the first time we met was back in 2006, when Nima was a senior at Parsons and I was on the senior thesis panel (an annual event during which industry experts come in to […]

Alexandra Ryan

Styling Director

Ten years ago, I launched a personal shopping business. It was my gateway to styling, from editorial shoots to film sets and, finally, e-commerce. I’m a tomboy at heart, so naturally I have a soft spot for the perfect grey fitted sweatshirt and a great pair of flats.

Amy Breckenridge

Style Blogger

By day, I’m an executive assistant at Rue. And by night, you’ll find me posting to my personal style blog, Cupcakes & Couture. I’m a lover of all things feminine and whimsical, I’m a collector of vintage designer handbags, and I’m constantly striving to achieve that effortless Parisian-chic look.

Bari Schorr

Beauty Director

As a born-and-bred New Yorker, I’ve been immersed in style my whole life. I learned the trade at Bloomingdale’s, then moved on to Saks Fifth Avenue, Burberry, and Ralph Lauren. Now, after more than 20 years in luxury retail, I head up Rue’s constantly growing beauty and shoe department.

Brianna Lapolla

Caroline Mauro

Senior Stylist

My first foray into styling was a stint in the wardrobe department on the show What Not to Wear. I often find inspiration in street style, with my personal look skewing on the sportswear and androgynous side. Head-to-toe black? I’m all about it. If you see me with a bright lip, be concerned.

Elizabeth Burns

Fashion Editor

My career started in personal shopping, where I worked with a global set of well-heeled clients to furnish their wardrobes and homes. That led me to the world of fashion editorial, first at Lucky and now at Rue. I’m a storyteller at heart, whether it’s curating an icon’s style or capturing trends. Outside the office, you’ll find me wandering the halls of the Met.

Emma Lifvergren

Stylist

When it comes to my style aesthetic, I’m constantly inspired by things other than fashion (think old movies, the book I’m currently reading, and architecture). I dress for my mood, so it’s not unusual to see me in leather and Dr. Martens one day, and penny loafers and a cardigan the next.

Joanna Berliner

Editor-in-Chief

For nearly a decade, I’ve worked in e-commerce telling style stories. The ones that stand out most? They go deeper than just trends. Think the history behind a Turkish rug or the craft that goes into a pair of Italian boots. That said – you won’t find me taking my own personal style too seriously. If it surprises and delights me, I’ll wear it.

John Camilleri

Creative Director

With more than 20 years in the fashion industry, I’ve worked on everything from mass-market brands to high-end advertising agencies. My kind of men’s style is all about refined simplicity – easy, accessible, and not overthought. Right now, I’m super excited about the all-American look and the iconic labels and personalities that bring it to life.

Kasey Rowe

Fashion Editor

I’ve spent the past few years translating street style, high fashion, and pop culture into shoppable experiences on Rue. At my core, I am a visual storyteller with a knack for finding low-ticket items that look expensive. In my free time, I obsess over all things home. My dream Saturday? Antiquing in the morning and trying a new recipe at night.

I’ve been a fashion editor for fifteen years, freelancing for publications including WWD, Teen Vogue, W, Marie Claire, Glamour, and Lucky. My love for the business extends into styling, too. I especially love vintage shopping and going to flea markets. Fun fact: I once ran a vintage booth on the weekends just for fun.

For more than five years, I’ve bounced between content and e-commerce roles – and I’m most excited when combining the two. I have a passion for uncovering stories, from the humble roots of iconic labels to the ever-growing clean beauty movement. Not surprisingly, I’m a sucker for stylish coffee table books.
