Harper's Bazaar and Estee Lauder: Looking For A Few Fabulous Women
This isn't a modeling casting call, it is something different, and something pretty darn cool.
I heard that Harper's Bazaar and Estee Lauder are Looking For A Few Fabulous Women. Here is the scoop: If you are a twenty-something trendsetter, playing up your flirty thirties, fashionable forties and fifties, or perhaps you are a sixty-something style connoisseur? If the answer is yes, Harper’s Bazaar and Estée Lauder are looking for you. The two brands have teamed up to find five of America’s chicest women, ages 20-60+, in the second-annual Fabulous at Every Age search, inspired by one of the magazine’s most popular features which transforms trends into great, age-appropriate looks, highlighting the distinctive personal style of the world’s most revered fashion icons.
To enter the contest, readers can nominate themselves or other fabulous women at www.harpersbazaar.com/fabcontest or at all-day casting calls at select Estée Lauder counters at Saks Fifth Avenue stores. Five finalists, each representing a decade between 20 and 60+, will receive a $5,000 cash prize and be honored at a VIP party hosted by Estée Lauder Spokesmodel Elizabeth Hurley at Hearst Tower in New York City on April 12. One grand prize winner will be selected from the finalists and receive an additional cash prize of $5,000.
Entries must include one close-up color photo of the face and three color full-body photos, each taken within the previous 365 days, as well as a testimonial of 50 words or less describing why the person being entered is fabulous for her age. Deadline for submissions is February 25, 2011; entries must be a female 20 years or older and a legal resident of the 50 United States, District of Columbia , or Canada . Void in Puerto Rico , Quebec province, and where prohibited by law. For complete rules, visit: http://www.harpersbazaar.com/promotions/official-rules-2011-fabulous-at-every-age-contest-0111
Casting calls will be held at select Estée Lauder counters at Saks Fifth Avenue locations around the country January 20-22 from 11:00am until 6:00pm (local time), where women will have the chance to get a makeup touch-up from a Beauty Advisor, try the Fabulous at Every Age lip colors, then pose for a digital photo which can be uploaded immediately to the contest microsite – customers are advised to call ahead to schedule an appointment.
