Beauty Call

| November 21, 2012 | Parties National

The Scene Lady of the hour Aerin Lauder held court at Oak restaurant to celebrate the launch of her new AERIN Effortless Beauty collection with Neiman Marcus. No newbie to the industry, the beauty heiress and style and image director for Estée Lauder discussed her must-have essentials over cocktails and hors d’oeuvres by chef Jason Maddy, including a particularly indulgent bite-sized taste of a crowd fave, the gianduja chocolate panna cotta. The Crowd
The sea of faces included Neiman Marcus Fashion Director Ken Downing, all smiles under his swath of blonde hair; his partner and energetic other half, Sam Saladino (who confirmed that he left Neiman’s for the Matthews-Nichols Group/Allie Beth Allman); Maxine Trowbridge, regal in a purple leather dress by Lyn Devon; Chuck Steelman minus his signature bowtie; DeeDee Lee; fashion and social bloggers Bradley Agather and Cynthia Smoot, and more. The Beauty
Lauder explained that the collection came from a very natural place—“I have always had the same skincare routine and it has worked for me, so I wanted to round up a collection of all my favorite things—the things that I love.” Photography by Stephen Karlisch
