Kelby Vera

News Editor

Kelby Vera is HollywoodLife's News Editor, contributing to the site's visual coverage of celebrities, entertainment, and breaking news. Raised on after-school binges of Extra! and hand-me-down magazines, Kelby first studied art and culture at UC Berkeley before beginning her career in print publishing. After cutting her teeth à la Devil Wears Prada in the trenches of fashion magazines, Kelby went back to her native Southern California to receive a Master's degree in journalism from USC's Annenberg School, specializing in art criticism. Looking for a fast-paced shift, she pivoted to the world of 24/7 digital news at the Daily Mail, covering celebrities, fashion, and entertainment. At the Daily Mail, she developed a passion for the Kardashian & Real Houswives universes and interviewed stars of all sorts, ranging from Bella Thorne, to Luann de Lesseps, to director Robert Rodriguez. Now, at HollywoodLife, she's working to give the audience the entertainment and pop culture coverage they crave.
