Laura Brown may not be a household name like Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington, but make no mistake: This lady is definitely among the fashion industry's elite. The Aussie transplant and Harper’s Bazaar executive editor is bringing her quirky personality to celebrity interviews and cover stories, not to mention applying her editorial savvy to her real-life closet, too. In fact, you've probably spotted Brown in dozens of Fashion Week front rows — meaning this lady's style is definitely enviable. Click through to eye up her must-have beauty picks (hot-pink lipstick is involved), her all-time favorite piece of clothing, and just a few of the heels lurking among her admittedly hoarder-ish shoe collection. (For further sartorial digest, check out Brown's Instagram feeds, @laurabrown99 and @harpersbazaarus.)
