Before the after-parties, the party, receiving guests, and walking the star-studded red carpet, Aerin Lauder prepped for the Met Gala in the dressing room of her Manhattan home. We all know the space, a feminine escape enveloped in Gracie wallpaper. It looked particularly enchanting in the hours before the gala, and provided a perfect backdrop for Aerin’s custom gown by Oscar de la Renta. So glamorous!
I had dreamed since I was a little girl of having a room of my own, a place to hide. - Aerin Lauder
