Early Life

Kelly Cutrone was born and raised in Camillus, New York. She graduated from Syracuse University. At age 21, she moved to New York City and worked for publicist Susan Blond for a year. She followed this with a position as director of communications at Spin magazine for Bob Guccione. Less than a year later, Cutrone founded Cutrone & Weinberg with former Susan Blond intern, Jason Weinberg. Their clients included Eartha Kitt and Mark Ronson.

Cutrone has been married twice. At 21, she married Andy Warhol's protégé, artist Ronnie Cutrone, and at 28 married actor Jeff Kober. Both marriages ended in a divorce. Cutrone had her daughter, Ava Cutrone, in 2002.


Having tired of the PR life, Cutrone sold her half of Cutrone & Weinberg to her co-founder and spent a year and a half as a tarot card reader. She founded People's Revolution in 1996.

On September 11, 2002, People's Revolution broke the record for the most shows produced on one day during New York Fashion Week, with five, mainly because they were the only company willing to produce shows on the first anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks.


Cutrone has appeared on MTV: True Life, The Hills, on which she allowed Whitney Port and Lauren Conrad to film in her office, and The City, where she served as the professional/personal mentor and consulted on Port's clothing line.

In February 2010, Cutrone executive produced Bravo's Kell on Earth, an eight-episode reality TV show about Cutrone and People's Revolution. The series followed her as she balanced running her own company and producing Fashion Weeks in New York and London with being a single mother.

In November 2010, Cutrone signed on as a contributor to the Dr. Phil Show.

Other Ventures

In February 2010, HarperOne, an imprint of HarperCollins, released Cutrone's memoir, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You. The book is co-authored by Meredith Bryan, and is a New York Times bestseller. Cutrone's second book, Normal Gets You Nowhere, was published May 3, 2011.

Cutrone appeared in Terrence Malick's "Knight of Cups" in March 2016.

Cutrone has spoken at two TEDx events. At the University of Oxford's independent event, TEDxOxford, she gave an 18-minute talk about her career. at TEDxAmsterdamWomen she spoke about her journey as a woman in business.
