of all the MDS Interviews i’ve done i think i’m most excited about this one with Aerin Lauder.
i did a favorite women post on aerin this time last year when she was just beginning to launch her new brand simply called aerin. And let me tell you what she has done over the last year has been amazing- fabrics, a store in southampton, lighting, furniture, beauty, accessories and most recently a new book called beauty at home. i have never really seen anything quite like it- all i can say is amazing!
aerin is so inspiring- of course we all know she is an all-american beauty with great style- classic, elegant, and modern. and yes she makes everything look and feel effortless and that’s not easy, but what i’m most inspired by is how smart, savvy and strategic she is, and how much she loves and honors her family, especially her grandmother estée.
estée lauder understood lifestyle and was an amazing entrepreneur. aerin is following in her footsteps and like her grandmother, she is going to show us all how to live beautifully!
i’ve never actually met aerin in person. i’ve seen her several times when i’ve been in nyc for either work or pleasure. there was one occasion i remember very well, it had to be almost 10 years ago. she was uptown on madison ave. in a cafe with her boys.
she looked beautiful of course, wearing a trench coat and manolo’s. but what i remember most was how engaged she was with her sons, you could just tell that they were her joy, her priority, her world. that’s what stuck with me and that’s really what living beautifully is all about!
i hope you enjoy part 1 of my interview with aerin, i know i did! more to come!
