Lauren Bush Beginnings
Born in Texas on June 25, 1984 to Neil and Sharon Bush (and a niece of President George W. Bush), she attended high school in The Kinkaid School located in Houston. She studied about fashion at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and The New School for Design.
Aside from this, she finished Anthropology at Princeton University in 2006. Though conscious about modeling’s strict diets and fitness, this Texas-born fashion model and designer was a member of an eating club, The Ivy club.
She is currently with Elite Model Management and has been gracing the covers of several popular global fashion magazines, like Vanity Fair and Vogue, tattler, Talk, and Town and Country magazines, ta name a few. Lauren Bush, standing 5 feet and 7 inches, is known to be among Tommy Hilfiger’s top models and also appears in fashion projects of Abercrombie & Fitch. She also works with designers Isaac Mizrahi and Gai Mattiolo.
Lauren Bush also relaunched in 2008 using the name Lauren Pierce as her fashion label. Pierce is actually Lauren’s middle name. Her preference for “Pierce” has something to do with her endearment to her maternal grandma’s maiden name. Moreover, her younger brother’s name is Pierce. Besides, she said, “Bush” was more of politics. Many find Pierce more appropriate for her fashion and modeling career.
The Pirelli 2002 calendar limited edition opted to make her the cover model.
