An Arkansas transplant devoted to all things style, Amanda Bedgood has a passion for the written word. And she’ll be helping fashion-forward IND Monthly readers look their best beginning Sept. 1. Bedgood joins IND Monthly as style editor, coming to us from FACE Magazine, where she was founding editor. In her new role with IND Monthly, which launches Sept. 6, she will handle all lifestyle coverage, including fashion, home, beauty and events.
Bedgood began her journalism career at The Benton Courier, where she covered crime and courts before moving to Lafayette and taking up a post at The Daily Advertiser. In 2008 she was recruited from the daily paper to launch FACE.
“There is an unmistakable flavor found in the homes and closets of Lafayette men and women,” Bedgood says. “From college students and hipsters to executives and ladies who lunch, an eclectic blend best described as fearless is a joy to watch and even more fun to cover.”
There is no shortage of inspiration for the fashion-conscious men and women of Lafayette, notes Bedgood. “They seem to have a knack for making international style all their own, thanks to local resources that bring the very best in home and fashion to Acadiana.”
Bedgood and her husband Mike have a 10-month-old son, Wilder, whom she obsesses over even more than a fresh issue of Vogue.
She also makes a killer gluten-free gumbo and believes even a Razorback girl can whip up a proper roux.
