Stephanie Seymour Was Meant to Model for Estée Lauder


Mother always knows best, especially when it comes to Stephanie Seymour’s latest gig as the new face of Estée Lauder.

The supermodel admitted that her mother predicted she would one day work with the beauty authority, joining the likes of Carolyn Murphy and Constance Jablonski. “The first thing I did was call my mother — and she laughed and said, ‘How cute — I can’t believe you remember that!’” she told Women’s Wear Daily. “But it always stuck with me. Whenever I heard they were looking for models, I would always cross my fingers and hope. For a model to work with Estée Lauder is the pinnacle of things. And to be a part of major brand, which is hiring models rather than actresses, is also huge.”

While we know Mario Sorrenti stepped behind the camera for the campaign, most of the details are still under wraps until fall approaches. The ads will revolve “around a new elevated platform in the luxury beauty space,” according to the brand. “Stephanie represents modern women today in such a beautifully articulated way and she represents modern beauty and luxury to us,” Jane Hertzmark Hudis, global brand president of Estée Lauder said. “This campaign will speak to the beautiful complexity that makes her who she is.”

However the campaign turns out, we’re sure her mom will be proud!
