Biography Hadley Freeman

Hadley Freeman is The Guardian’s deputy fashion editor and a contributing editor to Vogue. Famed for her insightful, opinionated and humorous musings on the world of fashion and beyond, her book The Meaning of Sunglasses: A Guide To (almost) All Things Fashionable – described by Elle as “an irresistible combination of insider’s fashion knowledge, myth-busting common sense and a sparky sense of humour” – was published in 2008, with a paperback edition February 2009.

Born in New York and now living in London, Hadley has quickly become one of British fashion’s most recognised voices. Her book The Meaning of Sunglasses: A Guide To (almost) All Things Fashionable is an A-Z of fashion and style and features entries ranging from Sex in the City to music festival attire.

The critics have been full of praise: “Good fashion writers with a clever, clear voice are rare and wonderful things and Hadley Freeman is one of them…There are many brilliant moments…pithy explanations of hugely influential style phenomena, funny and insightful with a huge ‘oh yeah’ factor (as in: ‘Of course, that’s the explanation. Why didn’t I think of that?” according to The Observer. “Hadley Freeman spins widely entertaining theories on the often ridiculous trends to which women subject themselves,” say Entertainment Weekly.

Hadley’s writing has also appeared in The New Statesman, The Daily Mail and on numerous websites. She is also the co-author of Victoria Beckham’s That Extra Half Inch: Hair, Heels and Everything in Between.


“I found myself laughing aloud at the images Freeman conjures of women bending themselves out of shape at office parties, wholly unconcerned about their own comfort. In the end, she lets us off the hook, encourages us to be true to ourselves. In the fraught arena of clothes and style, this is a welcome relief.”
