Apparently, the woman who runs Glossier — the online-only makeup store that dominates your Facebook ads — used to be a Teen Vogue “super intern”, but that’s not all. She was an intern in 2007, which means she made a three-episode appearance on The Hills as an intern poised to upstage Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port with her general awesomeness. Apparently, this wasn’t just fabricated for television, because Emily Weiss has since gone on to found Glossier. Talk about interesting career trajectory.

We found it hard to believe as well, but luckily we have video proof. Take a look at this crucial moment in which Emily the intern got a seat at the Teen Vogue table — instead of Lauren and Whitney.
