Lauren Bush Lauren describes her style as “classic, with a touch of bohemian.” But that touch goes a long way. From her wild, wild West wedding in 2011 to her natural-colored, canvas-heavy brand FEED, she has a strong rustic aesthetic.
Lauren says she wouldn’t wear heels all day, for instance, but is onboard with the resurgence of headbands. Most recently, she’s launched a capsule collection with Ralph Lauren Polo consisting of accessories with the FEED branding and a Polo logo. FEED — which Lauren co-founded in 2007 — gives meals to children around the world with proceeds from each purchase. For the new capsule, one backpack provides 145 meals, while a baseball cap provides 89. You get the idea. We spoke with her about tie-dye, clean perfume, and her dream vacation.
