MIGNON GOULD is the editor-at-large of Thechicspy.com. The blog is a whimsical blend of class and sass from a sartorial sleuth. She’s always on the hunt for the hottest of hot, exposing the next big fashion heist, or investigating the looks of elusive red carpet celebs, those who are trés chic and those who merely shock. She never shows up to foil a fashion caper without being dolled up with her trademark orange trench, sporting oversized sunglasses, carrying a designer tote and flashing her handy-dandy magnifying glass for sartorial sleuthing. So be warned, next time you’re spotted by her out on the town; be stylish, be debonair, but above all, BE CHIC, because she’s on a mission to uncover the chicest in style and entertainment!
