NYFW Backstage Beauty Alert: Lancôme Backs Becks
Last September, Victoria Beckham swapped private appointments at the Waldorf towers for informal presentations at a West Side gallery. Is a full-scale runway show in the cards for next month? Some new information has us thinking…maybe. Style.com has just learned that Lancôme has signed on as sponsor of Beckham’s February presentation, with the makeup artist Francelle keying the show. The French beauty giant is typically pretty selective; last season, celebrity face painter Daniel Martin debuted the latest installment of the brand’s popular Pout-a-Porter designer lipstick series at Chris Benz, and Lancôme artistic director for makeup Aaron De Mey played with pink at L’Wren Scott. The brand’s presence doesn’t necessarily mean Beckham’s graduating to the big time, but it certainly ups the likelihood. Stay tuned for details.
