About the Author

Bobbie Thomas has shared advice in nearly five hundred segments as style editor for NBC's TODAY show since 2005, including her weekly "Bobbie's Minute Buzz." Although her television career started on the red carpet for E!, the former cohost of the Style network's Fashion Police and national columnist began her work as a rape-crisis counselor. Uniquely under-standing that beauty comes from the strength within, Bobbie has worked with major brands and organizations such as Step Up, Make-A-Wish, and the United Nations Foundation to promote positive campaigns and encourage people to use style as a powerful voice. Bobbie adores her dog, Chica, was born in Rhode Island, grew up in Los Angeles, and lives in New York.
