A. Milne, and “Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austen. Chloé is also a subject in the book “A Fine Romance” written by her mother.

Career

Chloé has always had a passion for writing. After graduating from Brown University, she joined The New York Observer, a weekly newspaper owned by Observer Media, as an intern. She eventually became a reporter for the newspaper and interviewed the managing editor. Chloé’s talent and dedication led to her promotion as the real-estate writer for The New York Observer. During her time at the newspaper, Chloé had the opportunity to work with Alexandra Jacobs, who was reassigned to the New York Times Style section. Alexandra offered Chloé the chance to work as a freelancer for her, which she gladly accepted. Chloé also wrote an article for Vogue during this time. In 2011, she officially joined Vogue as a social editor and contributed to the magazine’s front-of-book section called “Flash.” She also wrote articles on various fashion events for Vogue.com. Chloé later became a contributing editor for Condé Nast in 2016. Some of her notable publications for Vogue include “Vogue Weddings: Brides, Dresses, Designers” (2012) and “Vogue and the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute: Parties, Exhibitions, People” (2014). In addition to her writing career, Chloé has been involved in various charitable activities, such as being a marathon guide at Achilles International and volunteering at Mother Teresa’s charity center in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. She has also served as a member of the Young Lions Committee of the New York Public Library.

Married Life

Chloé is married to Graham Albert, who is the senior vice president on the securitized credit investment team at MatlinPatterson, a distressed securities fund. They first met in September 2009 at a dinner party in Ethiopia organized by a mutual friend. Initially, Graham was not impressed by Chloé, but they eventually bonded over subsequent meetings and started dating. Graham proposed to Chloé during a vacation in Santa Barbara, California, on New Year’s holiday four years later, with a 1920s Art Deco sapphire and diamond ring. They got married on July 25, 2015, at Chloé’s country home, Le Coual, in Cahors, France. The wedding was an intimate event with only 50 guests, and the reception was also held at the same location. Chloé and Graham share common interests in education, health, and travel. While Chloé’s mother initially wanted the wedding to be held in New York, they compromised by hosting the engagement party there and having a small wedding in France with their family and close friends.
