At Home With Supermodel/Supermom Carolyn Murphy

For those of us eighties babies growing up in the nineties, chances are Carolyn Murphy is still near the top of your ultimate girl-crush list. Her chiseled cheekbones, searing blue eyes, casual-cool personal style, and healthy surfer-girl vibe made us pretty much want to be her. And not much has changed today. Now 40 and the dedicated single mother of a teenage daughter, Murphy is still lauded as one of the most successful models in the world, with a steady gig as the face of Estée Lauder and a fresh campaign with Oscar de la Renta under her belt, just to name a couple. All of this, in addition to her new-ish post as the Women’s Design Director of Shinola, and you could say she’s pretty busy. But luckily not too busy to take the time to let us tag along and spend a day with her and her lovely 14-year-old mini-me, Dylan, at their gorgeous home in the Hamptons. After reading the supermodel and supermom’s thoughts on motherhood and work/life balance, we think you’ll clearly see her beauty is so much more than skin-deep.
