The Interview — Lauren Scruggs Kennedy, Founder of the Lauren Scruggs Kennedy Foundation

Founder of the Lauren Scruggs Kennedy Foundation

Lauren Scruggs is a blogger, author and founder of the Lauren Scruggs Kennedy Foundation. California born but Texas raised, Lauren’s love for fashion has been tightly sewn in through her previous work—which includes interning in wardrobe for the hit CW show we all know and love, Gossip Girl. She continued her work in the fashion industry at Michael Kors’ showroom and later covered New York, Paris, and Montreal Fashion Weeks.

Inspired by personal experiences, Lauren wrote two books, Still LOLO and Your Beautiful Heart, proving her wisdom exceeds far beyond style. Most recently, Lauren launched the Lauren Scruggs Kennedy Foundation, with the mission to provide beautiful prostheses for women in need. She also started a yearly retreat for girls that have lost a limb to create a community and encourage one another on their journey. Follow Lauren on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook more daily inspiration.
