Who doesn't love a stroll around someone's private dressing area? A glimpse into their personal space, a taste of the way they live, a glimmer of the person behind the persona. Are they orderly and neat or wild and free? Does their wardrobe brim with frilly frocks or is it an exercise in practical dressing? These are the things I seek to discover when given an opportunity to tour the area where a celebrity does their morning dress up routine.
As expected, the heir to Estee Lauder's beauty empire and bonafide star businesswoman herself has a closet that is everything a girl could hope for. Outfitted with beautiful bags, shoes and baubles while bathed in sunlight, Aerin Lauder's dressing room (as seen on the Coveteur) is as enviable as her perfectly undone mane. Festive heels, blushy suede bags and enough leopard to make a even the most jaded fashionista rawr, this space gives us all more reasons to aspire to be at the helm of our own lifestyle brand.
The requisite black Birkin and a classic well-loved Chanel offset an accessories closet brimming with Aerin's own posh designs. What keeps the photos from looking like a brand editorial are the sentimental items complete with their own stories to tell and cherished family photos. That, and Aerin herself who while radiating well-heeled sophistication is convincingly approachable in every interview. I love seeing her in her space (and yes, I've obsessed about her closet and others before). Still, the images are fresh and as always, the divine Mrs. Lauder inspires me to up my style game at home and in my closet.
