Anna Sui Paints Agyness In Full Color


Anna Sui’s cosmetics range became a favorite with beauty gurus and editors alike when it debuted almost ten years ago. After disappearing for a while due to some unresolved licensing “issues,” the collection of brightly colored, boudoir-inspired eye shadows, lip glosses, and nail lacquers has been in slow-moving comeback mode (elaborate “beauty bars” were erected backstage at the designer’s Spring and Fall shows to preview upcoming launches, although the products are still only available for purchase at her Soho store). This week, the blogosphere is abuzz with news that the CFDA Lifetime Achievement Award winner has not only decided to dabble in haircare, but has also chosen model Agyness Deyn to front the new range. The influx of intelligence put us into information overdrive, so we called our trusted sources to get the inside scoop. And here it is: Yes, there is indeed a haircare line and while it’s not necessarily new (it’s been out in Japan for over a year), the rose-scented shampoo, conditioner, and hair oil finally arrived at Sui’s flagship in late July. Re: Agyness, she’s fronting the campaign for Sui’s new Fall colors, not the haircare line. Thoughts on her Prism Beige lipstick and Glassy Silver and Glassy Purple eye shadows?
