They say ‘behind every behind every successful man is a strong woman’, and Lauren Sanchez is a case in point. 

The 54-year-old turned heads at a state dinner hosted by Joe Biden earlier this week, wearing a stunning red gown by Rasario. Alongside fiance Jeff Bezos, her presence was nothing short of glamorous. 

If the saying goes that a “successful man” needs a strong partner by his side, then I’d beggar that behind every “successful woman” is an A-list glam squad. Obviously it’s not required, but it’s very handy to have the best MUAs, stylists and hair stylists in the business on speed dial. Especially when you enter the realm of the 1%. 

While her fashion choices often captivate us, the masterminds behind her impeccable makeup and chocolate tresses are equally fascinating. Thanks to photos posted to Instagram before her appearance at the White House, we found out exactly who she routinely entrusts to do her hair and makeup.
