Style icon Aerin Lauder reveals what it means to live beautifullyExtravagant and fun to be around, Estée Lauder, Aerin’s grandmother, loved jewelry and chocolate-covered marshmallows.
The traditions Aerin has created in her own family–from pool parties with her sons to walks along the beach collecting sea glass to breezy summer lunches–blend elegance and fun in equal measure.
She adored flowers and rooms full of exuberant patterns.
From an early age, Aerin understood that Estée’s passion for family was equal to her love of beauty.
For the first time, she shares memories of the family celebrations and world travel that formed her sense of style.
Aerin also reveals how she preserved Estée’s heritage in her former Hamptons home while adding her own twists.
Throughout this book, evocative photographs by Simon Upton show Aerin’s world in inspiring detail and enhance Aerin’s insights into surrounding oneself with beauty and family in every aspect of life.
When Aerin was a child, weekend visits with Estée meant ice-cream-and-late-night-TV adventures and spending time together at her grandmother’s dressing-room table with its intriguing lipsticks and creams.
Aerin opens the doors to her New York apartment, where on any given night she might host a relaxed dinner with firends under a vintage French chandelier or, just as often, an impromptu get-together for her sons.
