Lipstick On The Rim: Meet Your New BFFs Molly & Emese (Ep. 1)

By Sarah Jio

In their inaugural podcast, Molly Sims and her best friend, Emese Gormley, have the ultimate girlfriend convo. Listen along as they share the (hilariously adorable) way they first met, and dish on everything from their husbands to their favorite beauty products—and the drinks they’re sipping.

Episode Highlights:


On how they met:

Life is patchwork of beautiful and random moments, as is the case of how Molly and Emese first met.

The year: 2000. The setting: Sundance. Molly admits that she was dating a slightly younger man, (and he may or may not have been a bit of a loser) when she walked up to Eseme—a complete stranger—to give her a compliment on her hair. The rest is history. “Our friendship literally started with a hair compliment,” Molly says (note to self: Great things can come from random acts of kindness!).

Let’s get real:

Molly shares her goals for the podcast—realness. “I want to talk about all things, beauty inside and out … you know, from diet trends to seeing a therapist, to my mom dying. I want this to be who I am. I want people to be able to listen to the highs and the lows.” 

Get to know Molly’s best friend, Emese:

Emese discusses her super power (she can find anything!). “She can,” Molly says. “Like clothes, an item, a lipstick, something at Zara that’s sold out in every country. It’s a real skill set.” But not her only one! Emese shares her background—as the child of Hungarian immigrants who went on to be the head of public relations for Diane Von Furstenberg and then start her own successful organic baby food business. #goals



On creating the name for the podcast:

“We love beauty and we love to drink,” Molly says, laughing. But it’s more than just looks: inner beauty, friendship, real talk—these are the topics that get these best friends revved up. “When you look good, you feel good,” Emese adds. “And when you feel good, you look good. And I think that’s the, that’s the very definition of this podcast in my mind.” Molly agrees.

When your best friend is a supermodel:

Emese discusses what it’s like when your best friend is Molly Sims and her husband may or may not have once had the Sports Illustrated issue with Molly on the cover tucked under his mattress.  



Molly & Emese dish on their most embarrassing moments:

Molly on fashion mistakes: “It was this ghost dress,” she explains. Which you’ll find out more on the podcast… And Emese dishes on the spray tan from hell.

Rapid fire questions:

Molly shares her favorite drink and how to make it—and P.S. she promises the recipe makes delicious popsicles (for adults!). Emese shares her favorite holy grail lip gloss from Hermes, and both friends divulge which plastic surgery procedure they secretly want right this second.
