Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Gustav Klimt's "Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer" has inspired everyone from art students to Hollywood producers, and now the Austrian painter can add Aerin Lauder to that list. In anticipation of the Neue Galerie's upcoming exhibition featuring Klimt and the famed woman in gold, the lifestyle maven (and granddaughter of Estée Lauder) has teamed up with the museum's Design Shop to create an exclusive, limited-edition lipstick set, WWD reports.


The duel piece box set includes the existing Liebling blush tone and the Neue Galerie-exclusive Sequin gloden tone, the paper reports. It'll be available in the gift shop beginning March 30th (the exhibit opens April 2nd), and proceeds from its $64 price tag benefit the museum's education programs.
