Fifth Avenue glamour girl / Renée Rosen.

Rosen, Renée, (author.).


"A young woman gets pulled into Estée Lauder's enigmatic orbit as the future cosmetic icon prepares to take the world by storm. From the USA Today bestselling author of The Social Graces and Park Avenue Summer comes a story of friendship, glitz, and glamour in 1940s New York. New York City, 1938. Gloria Downing is done with lies. Eager to distance herself from a family scandal, what she needs is a total makeover and a friend she can lean on--and into her path walks a young, idealistic woman named Estée Lauder. The chance encounter changes Gloria's life, giving her the fresh start she seeks. But Estée has enormous dreams and is determined to become a success. Before Gloria knows it, she is swept up in her new friend's mission to become a household name like Elizabeth Arden, Helena Rubinstein, and Revlon. While Estée rolls up her sleeves, Gloria begins to discover her own talents when she lands a job at Saks Fifth Avenue, New York's finest luxury department store. For the first time, Gloria has power and a voice--both of which she earned herself--and opens the door for Estée's ambitions to come true. Just when it looks as though nothing can stop them, an outsider threatens to expose secrets that both women have kept, even from each other. With all that they hold dear on the line, Estée and Gloria will have to reckon with the price that comes with reinventing one's past and discover what is more important to each: friendship or fame"-- Provided by publisher.
