Laren has been a consultant and editor-at-large of Faerie Magazine since October 2014. With the support of the team, she initiated doing shoots (including covers and beauty) as well as timely celebrity coverage. Through her media contacts, Faerie Magazine receievd high-profile press coverage in T Magazine and The New York Observer.
Pairing talent with a story is like matchmaking. For M.A.C, Laren had Roger Ebert write a memoir-esque essay on sex, cars and cinema, Alan Cumming on how to be the life (and he added soul) of the party, Tavi on seeking style, Patti Wilson on the allure of the bow, Sophie Dahl on her glittering holiday memories, gave Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper playful questionnaires, asked Daphne Guinness to embellish her collection story with lyrical watercolours and calligraphy and collected stories from beauty bloggers around the world. She's even persuaded Simon Doonan and Dame Edna to write sonnets.—and recorded them reading.
Other talent includes:
Rebecca de Mornay
Dr. Valerie Steele
and the lovely Veronica Gledhill to name a few
