  • Alexandra Louise Kuczynski is a reporter for the New York Times, a columnist for the New York Times Magazine and the author of the award-winning 2006 book Beauty Junkies about the cosmetic surgery industry. The book was translated into ten languages. Her father, Pedro Pablo Kuczynski of Lima, is an economist and politician who lost the Presidential election in Peru in April 2011. After graduating from Barnard College in 1990, she became a journalist with the New York Observer and then the New York Times. On 10 September 2001, she was transferred by Howell Raines from media reporter to the style section, where Kuczynski would write "the sort of pop-feature pieces that would appeal to the Times national audience." She has been described as "a giddy blast. She always would have 10 ideas at story meetings and eight of them would be terrible and two would be brilliant." Kuczynski married the investor Charles Porter Stevenson Jr. in 2002. In 2006, she authored a book about the growth of the cosmetic surgery business: Beauty Junkies: Inside Our $15 Billion Obsession with Plastic Surgery.
