How Lauren Sánchez Makes Her Fiancé Jeff Bezos More Interesting

Evangelists for life in space, Lauren Sánchez and Jeff Bezos already live on a different celestial body.

Welcome to Planet Ridiculous, population: 2.

Vogue’s December issue, featuring Sánchez, 53, takes us mere mortals on a tour of their otherworldly perch — replete with climate hypocrisy and margaritas. The latter helps the first to descend easily.

There are helicopter flights, various luxury properties, and a giant pink diamond engagement ring (“When Jeff opened the box, I think I fainted a little”).

At one point, Sánchez corrects the belief that the voluptuous figurehead on the bow of Bezos’ $500 million superyacht – the largest of its kind in the world – looks like him.

“If it was me…” Sánchez says, sculpting the air to suggest larger breasts.

Once, Sánchez says, she and Kim Kardashian got into a bidding war over a Balenciaga couture dress. Kardashian, a friend, suggested they buy it together and trade it, like a billionaire’s version of Brotherhood of Traveling Pants. Instead, how lucky! — the designer proposed to make two; They each paid $200,00 and will travel to Paris together for a fitting.

Just as relevant: Sánchez recalls being present during Blue Origin’s first crewed flight to suborbital space in 2021. “They were making jokes in the capsule,” she says of Bezos & Co. with “fake disbelief” ( in the words of Vogue). “While I’m literally crying, I’m holding his mother.”

Nonetheless, Sánchez plans to take a Blue Origin trip in the coming year.

“Jeff always says: ‘Build the road to space so our children can build the future.’ And that’s what it’s all about. Launch, land, repeat, over and over again so we can figure out how to have reusable rockets…

“I say Magic a lot, right? she asks with a big smile.

In a Vogue vignette, Bezos – who surely had other things to do that day? – plays bartender in the “Astronaut Village” section of the 400,000-acre West Texas ranch he purchased in 2004.

Preparing margaritas for his fiancée and the writer (the daughter of Candice Bergen, who is no mere mortal herself), the 59-year-old billionaire meticulously measures out Milagro tequila and triple sec.

Bezos — wearing tiger’s eye and silver chain bracelets like a Vegas magician circa 2005 – cuts lime wedges into the perfect crescent shape before realizing he’s missing an essential ingredient.

“I don’t think we have any salt. I was going to give you a salty edge. It’s a very important part of the margarita,” explains the third richest man in the world.

Within eight minutes, a container of salt appears, prompting Bezos to “marvel”: “Wow, there’s like a salt genie there!” »

This is a way of referring to hired help.

Sánchez said of the ring Bezos gave her when he proposed: “When Jeff opened the box, I think I fainted a little. »

Sánchez talks about her and Bezos’ philanthropy, including supporting a tuition-free preschool and traveling to Tijuana to chop zucchini in a relief kitchen. She boasts of the Bezos Earth Fund, which has dedicated $10 billion to environmental causes.

“I think Jeff and I are really focused on the long-term commitment to climate, and we’re extremely optimistic about that,” she says, noting that her 417-foot yacht, Koru, can sail thanks to wind energy.

“We did it and it’s magical,” notes Sánchez – a phrase that suggests it’s the exception rather than the rule.

“I say Magic a lot, right? says Sánchez, here with Bezos during a photo shoot for the December issue of Vogue, photographed by Annie Leibovitz.

But the story also describes a dizzying schedule that sees the couple traveling weekly up the West Coast from Los Angeles, where their children live part-time with their father, Hollywood agent Patrick Whitesell, to the base of Bezos in Seattle; soon the trips will get longer as they plan to move to Miami. There are also campus visits to see Bezos’ four college-age children (at least one of whom is reportedly in Princeton, about 2,750 miles from Los Angeles).

I’d bet my Delta Miles they spend more time flying in a week than most of us do in five years. But apparently, spending $10 billion on it would make it possible to achieve the almighty carbon neutrality.

Yet Sánchez protests: “Our lives are pretty normal. »

I too remember the time I went camping and ordered custom leggings for everyone on the trip.

For Sánchez’s upcoming wedding, she tells Vogues she’s looking at dresses from Christian Dior, Dolce & Gabbana and Valentino. However, her sister, Elena Sánchez Blair, insists that’s not really who the future Mrs. Bezos is: “…the truth is that most of the time we’re on the couch in tracksuits and yoga pants, playing Sloppy Dice or Heads Up on our phones. »

Sánchez, who began dating Bezos in 2019, chooses to explain who she is through a more cinematic lens.

“Of course, Jeff’s favorite movie (of the summer) was ‘Oppenheimer,’ and I love ‘Barbie,'” she told Vogue. “And there we are, summed up in two films.”

Indeed, Sánchez is the Mattel Barbie ever made.

Everything about her, from her breasts to her giant lips to her sculpted biceps that say, “I can afford to spend four hours a day working out,” is totally exaggerated, like something out of a cartoon.

“Our lives are pretty normal,” Sánchez insists in Vogue.

But I have to say that there is something seductive and intriguing about Sánchez: his high octane joy of living.

She has a sense of humor – and of herself, which is rare in Bezos’ stratosphere.

I don’t think I ever heard her complain.

Maybe billions of dollars will ease grievances, but these days, deep pockets and privilege don’t always inoculate people against victimhood – hello, Meghan Markle. Sánchez seems to know how lucky she and Bezos are. It looks like they’re having a hell of a good time experiencing this.

Also give credit where credit is due. According to Vogue, Sánchez slept in the backseat of his grandmother’s Ford in Arizona while the woman drove to clean the house at 5 a.m., then got ready for school at the restaurant his grandmother ran as his second job.

Sánchez went on to overcome dyslexia, graduate from USC, become a television host in Los Angeles, learn to fly, and start her own successful aerial filming business.

In the Vogue article, Sánchez calls his Bell 429 helicopter “my baby.”

She is optimistic. And formidable.

“One thing I learned about Lauren is that if I’m in a bind, I can throw the gun at her,” Bezos says.

“I think I can get him out of most situations,” she admits. “I would make him fly!”

While her life may be over-the-top, Sánchez (here with Leonardo DiCaprio, left, and Bezos) deserves credit for her high-octane joie de vivre.

Maybe she’d take him to the nearest Gucci for some leather pants and a flamboyant hat. But that seems to be their MO: she makes the third richest man in the world infinitely more ridiculous – but also more interesting.

And she does it without any apology.
