To represent its wide range of beauty products, Estée Lauder has always chosen the most stunning of brand ambassadors. Here’s a look at some of the faces of Estée Lauder over the years:
Karen Graham (1970-1985)
Although she started by featuring only on intermittent ads for Estée Lauder, Karen Graham was used so frequently that the company signed her on as their official representative, featuring in campaigns that sought to exude the elegance and sophistication of the Estée Lauder brand.
Paulina Porizkova (1989-1995)
This Czechoslovakian beauty landed the $6million dollar a year contract with Estée Lauder in 1989. Not only was this a highly profitable contract, the campaign also transformed Paulina’s image from a swimsuit model to a European sophisticate.
Elizabeth Hurley (1995 – present)
The actress and model received her first big break from Estée Lauder, whose contract in 1995 was her first modeling job. Still with them today, Hurley has spent over 15years representing Estée Lauder.
Carolyn Murphy (2001-present)
In 2002, Elizabeth Hurley stepped down as Estée Lauder’s primary spokesperson and made way for fellow model, Carolyn Murphy. The former VH1/Vogue model of the year had worked in campaigns for Prada, Gucci and even featured in the annual Pirelli calendar. Today, Carolyn remains one of the faces of the brand, along side Elizabeth Hurley and newer representatives Hilary Rhoda, Liya Kebede and Joan Smalls and their first Asian spokes person, Liu Wen.
