Diane Kruger for Chanel Skincare; Beauty Lessons To Be Learned From Margaret Thatcher; And More…

-------

“No matter what makeup you do, flawless skin is your canvas for everything,” Diane Kruger told us in an interview last year. Now it appears as though the actress’ devotion to her complexion has paid off. Kruger has just been named the first-ever face of Chanel skincare. [HuffPo]

Lauren Bush Lauren and her FEED initiative have teamed up with Clarins for a second charitable collaboration that pairs a newly designed FEED bag with a six-piece product lineup, which will offer Macy’s customers a “gift with purpose” through April 20. [People]

Margaret Thatcher, who passed away this morning at age 87, was as much of a beauty icon as a political legend. “However late and however tired, I use cleanser to get the makeup off, and then a good moisturizer,” she once said of her skincare regimen, adding “there is a nonsense about intelligent women not being beautiful. There is no genetic link between brains and beauty. Most women are far more intelligent than people give them credit for.” [Telegraph]

…Yet somehow, all these years later, the debate rages on. Following an offhanded comment in which President Obama called friend and supporter California Attorney General Kamala Harris “the best-looking” AG in the country, a new study found that comments like this can tarnish the perception of women in executive roles. The moment a woman contending for power within the system of power gets talked about as if she’s contending for top marks within the system of beauty, it diminishes her standing in the other power realm, the findings contend.

The growth of celebrity Twitter accounts has given us many mind-boggling moments, and Heidi Klum offered up another one yesterday when she tweeted a modeling photo of herself from 20 years ago, in which she sports black eyebrows and dark brunette hair. “This is my original hair color,” the model mogul admits in the post. [Twitter]

Following its successful makeup bag collaboration with Lauren Bush Lauren’s FEED project, Clarins has signed on to help stage the Million Meals Concert next month, which will raise money to help nourish children in need and will include performances by John Legend, Natasha Bedingfield and a speech from the one and only Bill Clinton.

FEED And Clarins Team Up

-------

After a well-played partnership with evening bag designer Judith Leiber in April, Lauren Bush continues to up the ante with her FEED bags. Her latest collaborative effort is with French beauty giant Clarins. “We’ve done a lot of partnerships in our short life at FEED, but this really is so natural and so easy,” Bush says of the union, alluding to Clarins’ commitment to sustainable bio-diversity programs worldwide. The resulting organic cotton, recycled nylon-lined makeup bags are packed with travel-sized versions of Clarins Moisture-Rich Body Lotion, Hand and Nail Treatment Cream, and Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector. Emblazoned with a new, Clarins-branded red logo, the zipper pouch debuted at Colette in Paris this spring, which is where Bush was first introduced to the company’s president, Christian Courtin-Clarins. “As a father of two daughters, it was great to see a young lady who was giving meaning to her life,” Courtin-Clarins said of why he wanted to work with Bush. “She built something that was very clever, extremely easy to understand, and very efficient.”

As with all of her bags, the new addition to Bush’s collection of totes and clutches includes a number—15—denoting how many meals it will provide for children in need through a donation to the United Nations World Food Programme. “The partnership goes beyond this bag, though,” Bush explains. “Clarins is committed to giving money for at least 1 million school meals in two years, which is the first partnership we’ve done that has had a long-term goal.” Look for full-size, Clarins-packed totes printed with the number 25 this October.

Bobbi Brown Gives Good Gloss

-------


After they met on the slopes in Telluride (where all great ideas are hatched), Lauren Bush partnered with Bobbi Brown for the latest installment of her successful Feed bag line. The result of their collaboration, an organic makeup bag, will be filled with three of Brown’s best-selling lip glosses in Petal, Rose Sugar, and Aubergine when it goes on sale in October. It also does double duty as a clutch, and proceeds from its $50 price tag go to the United Nations World Food Program’s Food for Work initiative. Definitely a worthwhile addition to your fall shopping list.
