As the style editor for NBC’s “Today Show”, Bobbie Thomas has become one of the country’s most popular go-to fashion and style voices.

From Bobbie.com:

“Currently, millions of people wake up to catch Bobbie on NBC’s TODAY Show, where she serves as Style Editor. Beyond the TV screen, Bobbie connects with viewers on her TODAY.com webpage, and off set she interacts with tens of thousands via Twitter, Facebook & right here on Bobbie.com.

One of the few style experts out there who has truly done it all, Bobbie began her career as a rape crisis counselor, cementing her belief that “beauty truly comes from the strength within.” Eager to inspire others, Bobbie sought a platform to encourage self-esteem and confidence in the best way she knew how– a fusion of fun, fashion & friendship. She began reaching out to young women as advice columnist and West Coast Editor for top-selling teen magazines J-14 and Twist, and then to women nationwide with her column “The Buzz” in In Touch weekly, where she highlighted celebrity trends for over seven years.

Bobbie’s “Buzz” spread quickly, from FOX & CNN to MTV, the ladies of The View and the boys of The Best Damn Sports Show Period, her tips, finds and Hollywood secrets resonated with a wide audience. As a recurring correspondent and guest on a variety of E! Entertainment specials including red-carpet Emmy, Golden Globe and Academy Awards coverage, as well as co-hosting the Style Network’s Fashion Police, viewers consistently looked to Bobbie to translate trends & transform the way they see style.

Whether she’s speaking to a television audience, teaching mall-goers across the country about body shape, showcasing DIY projects online or simply giving a makeover to a friend, Bobbie works tirelessly to use her voice to help people feel good about themselves. By making fashion accessible and beauty attainable, Bobbie is not only a consummate curator for women, but an unparalleled spokeswoman for female empowerment.”
