Aerin Lauder’s Best Career Advice Came From Her Grandmother

Published

on

What was your first job where you actually made money?

At the end of high school, beginning of college, I worked at the Museum of Modern Art in the archives. I loved that because I’m very visual and love the arts. My first real job was at Clinique in the design department. That was my first job within the company, and I was completely hooked. I loved beauty. I loved the company. I loved the different brands. When I graduated from university, I was at Estée Lauder, Clinique, and Prescriptives during the summers. And then I went to Estée Lauder full-time when I graduated.

I haven’t heard the name Prescriptives in so long. I loved that brand. [Note: Prescriptives was founded in 1979, went online-only in 2011, and closed permanently in 2020.]

What’s interesting is that’s where my uncle wanted me to go one summer because he said that’s where I would really learn so much because it was such a small brand. At Estée Lauder, I did product development just for makeup because it was such a big brand. But at Prescriptives, I had the ability to work on all these different products because it was so small. He was right; I was exposed to so much. Prescriptives was ahead of its time. If you think about, it was probably one of the first makeup artist brands out there. It’s shame that we had to kind of…certain things are available online, but you live and you learn.

When you were growing up, what did you imagine your career would be like? 

I always loved beauty and fashion, and I’ve always loved home. I knew I wanted to be in the company. I could not wait to graduate and start working there. I was there for 25 years when I found that there was an opportunity in the marketplace for a beauty lifestyle brand. I still play a role at Estée Lauder, and obviously Aerin Beauty is part of Estée Lauder and sits on the Estée Lauder counter. So it’s something I’ve always loved.

What is the best quality in a boss? 

Probably honesty. If someone makes a mistake or if something’s wrong or if you think something’s not going in the right direction, use your words carefully and always be respectful, but be honest. The culture I’ve established at my company is that everyone treats each other with respect. I always think it’s important for people to talk through things. 

How do you shut your mind off when it comes to work? How do you set boundaries?

I try because it’s really important. It’s hard, though. I have two grown sons, and when you’re at a dinner with family or you’re spending time together at home, it’s really important to switch gears and balance that family time. My grandmother and mother always taught me the importance of balance, and that’s really very important. If you love what you do, you can find the balance.

Pete Davidson’s Shirt Seems to Say How He Feels About His Split From Kim Kardashian

Published

on

In the few days since news broke that Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson broke up, the only public response has come from Kardashian’s ex, Kanye West. Still, Davidson’s post-breakup style may hint at how the SNL cast member is taking the split.

While Davidson spent August 5 with his mother and sister, Casey, as they celebrated her graduation from the physician assistant program at New York City’s Pace University, he was back in Australia to continue shooting his film Wizards! the very next day.

So how does Pete Davidson—who literally has Kim’s name branded on his chest—feel about the breakup? We can’t say for sure, but the T-shirt he reportedly wore on the set of his upcoming project might shed some light on the subject. According to E! News, the comedian was photographed wearing a “What… I feel like shit” T-shirt on August 6, just one day after their split was reported.

Though it was initially said that long-distance and scheduling conflicts led to their breakup, a source recently told Entertainment Tonight that the reality star broke things off with the comedian because “the spark between” them had “faded” after nine months together. The source added that Davidson is “so sweet, but she didn’t feel ready for something serious with him.”

“They had tons of chemistry, and still do, but she kind of wants to be single and date,” the source said. “Kim still adores Pete and will always be friends with him. She still thinks he’s the nicest and sweetest guy in the world and there’s no drama or anything weird between them now.”

They continued, “She felt like Pete was the extreme opposite of Kanye and it was good for her then. She initially thought it would be a fun fling, but then it got more serious when they were spending so much time together. Kim wasn’t feeling like she was willing to settle down with him just yet.” When you think about it, this makes more sense than long-distance struggles considering Kim Kardashian’s reported affinity for her private jet…

She’s on the deck of a yacht bobbing in the aquamarine waters off Formentera, wearing cut-off denim shorts and a tank over her black bikini. The breeze whips her long hair around her face as she plants a kiss on her beaming, deeply tanned beau. No, it’s not the newest ingénue being clamored over by Hollywood execs, nor a twenty-something pop sensation topping the charts. It’s the 54-year-old former first lady of France, Carla Bruni.

The model and mother of two, who is currently cruising the Med with her husband, Nicolas Sarkozy, is emblematic of the woman having the most aspirational of all the celebrity summers this year. She’s gorgeous, she’s carefree, and she’s north of 50. Forget blondes: In 2022, mid-lifers have more fun. 

Take 64-year-old Sharon Stone, who in recent weeks has gone from sensational poolside bikini shots to posting sensational poolside bikini shots. Then there’s Cindy Crawford, 56, who is holidaying at her family’s island retreat in Ontario, Canada, where she’s been zipping across the lake on a speedboat, devouring Liane Moriarty’s latest, and generally looking better than ever in her Melissa Odabash bikini. Her daughter Kaia Gerber put it best in her comment on Cindy’s swimwear snap: “Hot!”
