As the globe-trotting president of Net-a-Porter and Mr. Porter, Alison Loehnis spends her days—and many evenings—surrounded by the best clothes, accessories, and beauty potions on the planet. Loehnis, who joined Net-a-Porter in 2007, has been working in fashion since her girlhood summers, when she scored a job at the Ralph Lauren boutique in East Hampton. As both a seasoned editor and a high-powered executive, Loehnis has thoughtfully curated all areas of her life while carving out plenty of time for surprise and discovery. —Ashley Baker
