Tastemaker > Aerin Lauder

Aerin Lauder, photographed in her office and in front of a portrait of her grandmother, Estee Lauder.

Growing up within the influential shadow of her trend-setting grandmother, legendary cosmetics maker Estee Lauder, Aerin Lauder's discerning taste strikes a balance of classic style mixed with a 2010 sensibility of family, home, and health.  Working for the family business since 1992, Aerin is currently Estee Lauder's Senior Vice President and Creative Director. Personal (40 years old, married, mother of 2 sons) and professional life intersect quite nicely when determining and developing new health & beauty products for women.  Her overall style, for both fashion choices and her home's interiors, blend a polished sophistication with a sense of comfortable need.  Aerin's city & country homes were photographed for Elle Decor Magazine's July/August 2009 issue and she was featured on the cover.  Check out the images below.

In 2007, Aerin launched a specialty fragrance line incorporating the scents and floral formulas that Estee had once developed and reserved for herself and close friends.  She is the face of the campaign.  Read more from Vanity Fair Magazine.
