Kahlana Barfield Brown is the 30-something Fashion & Beauty Editor-at-Large of InStyle Magazine, where she rose from intern to a fixture on daytime television and awards shows. She's living a dream life people would die for. Whether she's flying to fashion week in Paris, hanging out on the red carpet at the Grammys or Oscars, having a slumber party with Jessica Alba, or sharing beauty tips on The Today Show, Kahlana makes it clear that a lot of hustle and persistence over a decade has brought her to this point.
