American Beauty Contest

I’d be remiss not to mention my new favorite book. I’m already treasuring my copy of American Beauty that highlights a diverse group of quintessentially American women such as Lily Aldridge, Solange Knowles, and Jenna Lyons. The photos by Vogue alumna Claiborne Swanson Frank are stunning. In celebration of the book, Estée Lauder and Neiman Marcus teamed up for a contest. Tell them how you exemplify modern American beauty for your chance to win.

  • One grand prize winner will receive a trip for two to New York City during Fashion Week to have your portrait taken by Claiborne Swanson Frank, attend a runway show, receive a tour of the Assouline offices and meet founders Prosper and Martine, an Estée Lauder makeover and gift package and a $1500 Neiman Marcus gift card.
  • Two second-prize winners will receive a gift bag filled with products from Estée Lauder.
  • Ten finalists will receive a gift bag filled with products from Estée Lauder.
