Estée Lauder Turns the Internet Pink

Just as the iPhone 5 frenzy was subsiding, the outside of the Apple Store at 59th and 5th was abuzz again for the kick off of the 20th anniversary of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The event, sponsored by Estée Lauder Companies, was in honor of Evelyn Lauder who died last year of ovarian cancer. It was Evelyn Lauder who handed out pink ribbons at makeup counters in New York City leading to the first National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in 1992.
