Karyn Khoury, senior vice president of corporate fragrance development worldwide at the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc., was honored by the Museum of Arts and Design, and the company’s top brass turned out to cheer. Khoury expressed gratitude to Leonard Lauder for his support over the past 30 years. “I owe you my success and my career,” she told him, in front of a crowd that included Fabrizio Freda and Aerin Lauder, then saluted the memory of the late Evelyn Lauder as her mentor, boss and friend. The exec shared honors with IFF’s star perfumer Sophia Grojsman.
In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
