Business Idol: Aerin Lauder

I was just thinking as I read Heather’s lovely post about the upcoming AERIN line (so exciting!) how much I admire Aerin Lauder (granddaughter of cosmetic icon Estée).  She always appears so polished and effortlessly chic — the epitome of class and grace.  I consider her a great role model for young women like myself interested in business, beauty, and fashion.  Judging by her success in the industry and general high regard she’s clearly quite savvy at all three.  Which creative business women do you admire?

Girl Crush: Michelle Williams

Of all the stylish girls out there Michelle Williams is undoubtedly my ultimate style icon.  I just adore her tomboy chic look — she somehow manages to stun in Chanel Haute Couture on the red carpet yet pull off an effortlessly chic look of messy locks, wayfarers, and military jackets on the streets of New York.  I too favor tomboy chic looks by day and classic, girlish frocks by night.  Which celebrity has style most similar to your own?  I want to hear it!
