You probably own some Glossier in your make-up bag, but do you know that the founder Emily Weiss appeared on The Hills? Unless you're a beauty nerd, probably not. But for three episodes in 2007, Emily was a super hard-working Teen Vogue intern opposite Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port. Wild.
Fashion journalist Freya Drohan reminded us, as she shared a screenshot of Lauren and Emily on Twitter. ‘Let it never be forgotten that Emily “the Teen Vogue Super Intern” from The Hills went on to become Emily Weiss, founder of billion dollar baby Glossier,’ she wrote. ‘Never underestimate your interns! #TheHillsNewBeginnings.’ (Emily is not the only unexpected cameo, either - do you remember when Lady Gaga appeared in an episode in 2008?)
So, what happened to Emily after her apperance? Well, while working as a fashion assistant at Vogue, the 34-year-old launched her blog Into The Gloss in 2010 - and in 2014, she released the first four Glossier make-up on the blog. Since, the brand has since snowballed to include several other beauty products, including spin-off brand Glossier Play. ‘When I started Into The Gloss, I wanted to make beauty as much of an element of personal style as fashion,’ Weiss says on the website, talking about her brand. ‘As I interviewed hundreds of women, I became more and more aware of how flawed the traditional beauty paradigm is. It has historically been an industry based on experts telling you, the customer, what you should or shouldn’t be using on your face.'
