Host Lauren Hutton
Ms. Hutton has consistently shown how to age and navigate transition successfully. In September 2002, Ms. Hutton will revolutionize the makeup industry by launching her own makeup line, Lauren Hutton's Good Stuff. Made for mature women who want to look like they aren't wearing any makeup at all, Good Stuff is a direct result of years of struggling to maintain the natural, healthy look that she has popularized.

Lauren Hutton has appeared on the cover of Vogue 28 times since she began her modeling career in the mid-'60s. In 1974, she created the "supermodel" when she signed on to be the face of Revlon. It was the first time a product would be associated exclusively with one model. In 1989, she created an image for mature women by launching modeling campaigns with Barney's, J. Crew, Federated Department Stores and Revlon.

Ms. Hutton's film credits are extensive. She has worked with directors such as Paul Schrader, Robert Altman and Jean-Paul Rampeneau. She co-starred with Richard Gere in American Gigolo, Robert Redford in Little Faus and Big Halsey and Jim Carey in his first movie, Once Bitten. She also earned critical praise for her performance in 1999's Just a Little Harmless Sex.

From 1996 to 1997, she hosted a nationally syndicated talk show, "Lauren Hutton and ...," for Turner Original Production. She also hosted the syndicated travel series, Three Perfect Days. From 1996-1998, she hosted Bravo's primetime series Bravo Profiles, which investigates the creative and business processes behind the arts.

For the past 12 years, she has worked closely with women's health, environmental and wildlife foundations such as the Women's Campaign Fund and World Wildlife Foundation. In 1999, she became the first television advocate for Hormone Replacement Therapy (H.R.T.) the post-menopausal preventive against osteoporosis, heart disease, colon cancer and Alzheimer's.

Lauren Hutton is the original vice-president of the Guggenheim Museum Motorcycle Club, and is on the board of the National Museum of Women in Arts in Washington, D.C. A constant traveler with a special fondness for Africa and China, her new passions are dog sledding and sailing classic wooden sailboats.
