Still from Modern Muse Moments featuring Amandine Albisson
For Estée Lauder’s new perfume, the beauty house enlisted the help of filmmaker Steven Sebring to create a series of short films that celebrated various the company’s muses. Chosen by spokesmodel Arizona Muse, the films feature the Paris Opera Ballet’s principal dancer, Amandine Albisson, and actress Cody Horn, whose film credits include Magic Mike and End of Watch.
The premiere was held in the theater at the Tribeca Grand Hotel with Horn (wearing a beautiful Jonathan Saunders dress) and Sebring in attendance. Guests sipped on wine in the lobby and sampled the new fragrance.
In an interview for the Estée Edit, Sebring said, “I’m really interested in story and dialogue. And no one is doing that in the fashion and beauty industry right now.” Sebring calls these distinctly different films “visual conversations,” that let each women speak for themselves about what inspires them.
