Alexandra Kotur

Creative Director, Town&Country

Kotur became Town&Country's creative director in April 2011. Initially based in London, she started her career at Condé Nast in 1993 in the fashion department of British GQ and three years later began at Vogue in New York. She soon became Vogue's editor for the Annie Leibovitz book Women (excerpted in the magazine's millennium issue) and continued to work closely with the photographer and others (most notably, Jonathan Becker) throughout the decade on feature portrait sittings. As style director, Kotur created Vogue's "FLASH" section and worked intimately with André Leon Talley in producing his column, "Life with André." She edited the book Women in Vogue: People, Parties and Places and authored and edited Carolina Herrera: Portrait of a Fashion Icon.

Kotur is a member of Vanity Fair's International Best-Dressed List Hall of Fame.
