Chrissy Iley is renowned for her intimate celebrity profiles published in the Sunday Times Magazine, Observer Magazine, You Magazine, Glamour and Harper’s Bazaar. She was the 2015 winner of SoCal Journalism Awards’ Best International Interview for her interview of Hillary Clinton in the Daily Telegraph Seven Magazine and awarded Interviewer of the Year in the 2008 British Press Awards for her work on Demi Moore, The Police and Keira Knightley.
Victoria Beckham, Johnny Depp and Bono are favourites among her subjects. As well as her gift for probing her subjects face to face, Chrissy made her mark as a columnist for the long running and iconic column Relationship of the Week in Sunday Times Style. She also had a pseudonymous column in the same magazine under the name Hairbitch, discussing the hidden psychology of celebrities and their hair. Chrissy has made many guest appearances in a variety of documentaries and appeared on stage at the Bloomsbury Theatre, London, interviewing Julian Clary for his show An Audience with Julian Clary.
Chrissy divides her time between London and Los Angeles (that way, she can be both feisty and sympathetic).
