Elizabeth Hurley launched Elizabeth Hurley Beach in 2005 and draws her ispirations from wanderlust for exotic destinations, conceived during her childhood in England. “I’ve always been obsessed with summer clothes – probably because I grew up in a rainy country where I was brought up never to leave the house without a cardigan and umbrella. I used to dream of glamorous, sunny places like St. Tropez and St. Barth’s and in my dreams I was wearing clothes remarkably similar to the ones in my collections!”
Elizabeth Hurley Beach is a chic but wearable line, focused on sensual fit and jet-set influences. It is aimed at the fashion-conscious woman who wants to bring an element of luxury and excitement into her vacation wardrobe. It is available in numerous high end boutiques, department stores and resorts worldwide.
Elizabeth lives in England with her nine year old son Damian and an assortment of animals. She earns her living by acting, modeling, designing beachwear and farming.
Elizabeth recently guest starred in Gossip Girl in NYC playing the role of Diana Payne. She will be shooting more episodes for the show early this year. Before becoming a mum, Elizabeth made more than two dozen movies. Her personal favorites are Austin Powers with Mike Myers, Bedazzled with Brendan Fraser and The Weight of Water with Sean Penn.
She also produced several movies starring her former boyfriend, Hugh Grant - Extreme Measures and Mickey Blue Eyes, under their jointly owned Simian Films production company.
Elizabeth is in her eighteenth year of representing Estée Lauder as a spokesmodel, making it one of the world’s longest running beauty contracts. She has also toured the United States and other parts of the world with the late Evelyn Lauder, raising funds and awareness for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. She has illuminated many worldwide Landmark buildings pink.
She was honored in October 2009 by the Foundation and awarded the Humanitarian Award for her fund raising efforts.
