Mexican writer, author of many books including Las Niñas Bien, Las Reinas de Polanco, Debo, Luego Sufro and Compro, Luego Existo, in which she ironizes about the Mexican upper class. A participant in Elena Poniatowska's writing workshops in the mid-1980s, she has transformed her success as a chronicler, observer, and critic of the Mexican bourgeoisie and the post-1985 democratization of Mexico into a successful career. Known for her trademark pearl necklace (a family heirloom) and for her francophile tendencies, she has become an influential cultural figure. Some of her books are compilations of her articles published in newspapers such as Unomasuno and La Jornada. She had two children from her first marriage. In 2003, Guadalupe Loaeza received the distinction of Chevalier from the Légion d'Honneur of France. As of 2008, Loaeza is a columnist for the Reforma newspaper and is married to Dr. Enrique Goldbard.
Sy Scholfield quotes her on Twitter: "Soy dos veces Leo. Naci el 12 de agosto, a las siete de la mañana. Y el año? Ya se me olvidó. Averíguenlo! pero no se lo digan a nadie" (Translation: I am double Leo. I was born on 12 August at seven in the morning. And the year? I've forgotten already) , "El paso del tiempo ha sido un poco ingrato Diana Keaton. Tiene mi edad (1946), pero con toda modestia diré que parece mi hermana mayor (1937" (Translation: The passage of time has been a bit unkind to Diane Keaton. She is my age (1946), but with all modesty, I would say that she seems like my older sister (1937) .
