Lauren Bush Lauren And Other Unfortunate Married Names

Lauren Bush, the model, designer and philanthropist niece of George W. Bush, is getting married. To David Lauren, the son of Ralph Lauren. And she is planning on taking her husband’s last name making her … Lauren Bush Lauren. Perhaps even Lauren Lauren, if someone decides to drop her now-middle name. “I think it will be Lauren Bush Lauren,” she told Harpers Bazaar. “I think it’s nice to have the same name as your husband. I am sort of old-fashioned in that way. Of all the people I could’ve met and fallen in love with, it’s just ironic that David would end up with someone named Lauren.” [NY Post, Daily Mail]

Strange things can happen when it comes to taking someone’s last name. After the jump, some unfortunate examples. Keep reading »

Lauren Bush Wants To Feed The World

OK, jaded fashion lovers, listen up. We’re all tired of hearing about designers who donate two percent of the proceeds from a random T-shirt to some backwater pet charity in Papua New Guinea. (Note to all publicists: We see right through you.) But Kenneth Cole and Lauren Bush have collaborated on a Feed Health backpack that’s actually going to make a difference. For each of the $125 bags sold, another one will be donated to a health care worker in sub-Saharan Africa. The bag will be filled with medical supplies, like syringes and bandages. Condoms. A cell phone. Oh, and a scale to weigh newborn babies. Starting tomorrow, the backpack will be available at select Kenneth Cole stores and online here (with free shipping!). So, no more hoarding your pennies. Besides, you can’t even buy Givenchy on sale for that price! Keep reading »

Fashion Designer Shaves Off Her Bush

Lauren Bush, niece of George W., debuted her fashion line at Barney’s this week under the name Lauren Pierce. Explaining the name change to W, Lauren denied it had anything to do with her name being mud in much of the world, saying:

“It wasn’t a conscious decision…. Obviously my last name is associated with politics. But Pierce is my grandmother’s maiden name and my younger brother’s name. It’s not about downplaying my last name as much as it is about loving Pierce. And my brother is very flattered.”

Lauren also happens to be dating son of fashion legend Ralph Lauren, and one can’t help but wonder if he’s the one who gave her the career advice to ditch the Bush. Just the kind of thing every young woman wants to hear from her boyfriend’s dad. [via Huffington Post] Keep reading »
