Yasmin Le Bon Talks Beauty Secrets; The Girl Scouts Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Fashion And Makeup Badges; And More…


Model and Duran Duran band-aid Yasmin Le Bon reveals the secret to looking utterly ageless, even as she approaches 50: “The most important thing is to enjoy your life. I know that’s an old cliché but it does make a difference. How you feel inside kicks off the hormones that make your skin look good.” [Grazia]

The Girl Scouts are getting PC. The association has just announced plans to replace the Fashion, Fitness, and Makeup badge, which was introduced in 1987, with the Science of Style badge, which goes way beyond rewarding shopping and primping skills and has girls learn about nanotechnology in fabrics and the chemistry of sunscreens.

Don’t expect to find zesty notes in forthcoming fragrances from Dior and Prada. The brands’ go-to perfume house, Givaudan, has plans to fully cancel out higher input costs for raw materials such as citrus and orange oil, which have seen a spike in price over the past year. [Reuters]

The beauty business in Asia is still booming—something that hasn’t been lost on Guerlain. The LVMH-owned French brand has just enlisted Malaysian-born actress Michelle Yeoh as its latest brand ambassador to help “introduce [its] Asian clients to the enchanted world of [its] perfume creations.” [WWD]
