GET ME MAKEUP!: At a lunch to honor Evelyn Lauder and mark the 15th anniversary of her Breast Cancer Research Foundation, many in the room had fond memories that included, but weren’t limited to, Lauder’s advocacy work. In her toast, co-host and Self editor in chief Lucy Danziger recalled getting taken out to lunch by Lauder at the Four Seasons soon after taking over the magazine. ‘You’re not wearing enough makeup,’ Lauder exclaimed, pulling out a kit for a touchup. Also at the Four Seasons that day were Danziger’s then-boss, Steve Florio, and Lauder’s husband Leonard, who dryly remarked Estée Lauder hired people to do that kind of thing.
The intimate lunch at Rouge Tomate was also hosted by Glamour editor in chief Cindi Leive and Allure editor in chief Linda Wells, with guests including Lesley Stahl, Ann Curry, Nora Ephron and Gayle King. Katie Couric popped in later to get the latest on cancer research from the foundation’s Dr. Larry Norton.
