Graydon Carter is the Canadian-born, American journalist whose career began at Time where he spent five years writing on business, law and entertainment. In the early 80’s, Carter then moved to Life before becoming editor of The New York Observer. Carter’s next stop was replacing Tina Brown (who left for The New Yorker) at Vanity Fair, where he has been Editor-in-chief since 1992. Prior to being a media mogul, Carter worked as a lineman on the western railways of Canada, stringing wire between telegraph poles. Today, Carter’s reach extends far beyond the star-packed magazine he presides over: he is the host of the most coveted and glamorous parties coast-to-coast, and a restaurateur who never misses. First it was the Waverly Inn, then Monkey Bar, and another guaranteed hot spot is in the works in the West Village. Carter is also a producer—his documentaries and films have been shown at the Sundance Film Festival as well as Cannes Film Festival. Meanwhile, Vanity Fair continues its winning streak as one of the crown jewels of the Condé Nast empire. Carter has been married three times and has five children. Currently, Carter is married to Anna Scott.
