LAUDER HONORS: Evelyn Lauder, senior corporate vice president of the Estée Lauder Cos., will be awarded the Legion of Honor today by François Bujon de l’Estrang, the French ambassador to the U.S. During an evening ceremony at the consulate general’s residence in New York, Lauder will receive France’s highest decoration for civil achievement for helping to build her family’s business, contributing to French charities and founding the Breast Cancer Research Foundation nearly a decade ago. "I never dreamed when I was learning French in high school that I would be standing in the French consulate receiving an award like that," Lauder remarked Tuesday. Lauder’s husband Leonard, the chairman of Estée Lauder, has received the medal three times and his mother, Estée, has received it once.
