Marc Expands Into Makeup, CoverGirl Taps Olympians, Franca Sozzani Talks Body Image, And More

-------

Just days after announcing a new scent called Dot, Marc Jacobs is upping the ante with plans for a future color cosmetics line with Sephora. “I see makeup, fragrance—everything, really—as an opportunity. The idea of choosing a color for your lip, or an eyeliner—it’s just such a delight…something that people really enjoy,” Jacobs told WWD. [WWD]

The London Olympics are still several months away, but the games are already on for companies looking to snag athlete endorsements. CoverGirl recently announced two new faces—beach volleyball player Jennifer Kessy (pictured) and boxer Marlen Esparza—who will be promoting limited-edition mascara and lip color. [StyleNews]

Franca Sozzani has never been afraid to address health concerns in the fashion industry—particularly, eating disorders affecting models and young girls’ self-image issues. In a speech yesterday at Harvard, the Vogue Italia editor said, “We cannot generalize, of course, and accuse the girls we see walking runways of being anorexic. They are still undeveloped and are taken as role models, for instance, by girls who may already have personal issues and are therefore easily influenced—and fashion becomes one of the causes.” [StyleList]
