Bathing Beauty: Annelise Peterson
You know those girls who walk into a room, towering over even the men, and all eyes turn to stare at the stunning beauty who just entered? Well, that’s Annelise Peterson, bicoastal publicist, consultant and (sometimes) contributing Beauty Banter fitness editor. She’s worked with some of fashion’s finest: Calvin Klein, Valentino, Alberta Ferretti, and now has branched off on her own, parlaying her insight and wisdom into a consulting business for a number of different designers including Elise Overland and Juan Carlos Obando.
The amazon gorgeous, smart as-a-whip, fiercely talented Annelise was kind enough to answer our favorite beauty questions. After all, it’s fashion week here in the Big Apple and we needed ourselves a healthy dose of fashion meets beauty… who better than Annelise?
