(NEW YORK) We should have seen this one coming. Today, Page Six reported that Aerin Lauder, 40, is launching her own fashion and lifestyle brand under the tutelage of Anna Wintour and NBC Universal head Jeff Zucker. "Aerin wants to be the next Tory Burch," if not bigger, a source told the paper. The brand is said to include fashion, accessories, housewares, china, and jewelry, which will be inspired by pieces from the private collection of Lauder's grandmother, Estée Lauder.
