Agent Provocateur co-founder and Dame Viv’s son Joe Corre has taken an active interest in London-based cosmetics brand Illamasqua—a 10 percent interest, to be exact, which will make him a part of the brand’s development over the next few years. Three words for you, Mr. Corre: United States flagship. [WWD]
After avoiding financial disaster last September when Art Capital Group called in her $24 million loan, Annie Leibovitz is in the red again, but this time to Shiseido’s artistic director of makeup Dick Page. And you know what they say: Hell hath no fury like a makeup artist scorned. [Newsday]
Gyms aren’t the only fitness venues overrun with resolutioners this month. Apparently parks, tracks, and the mall power-walking set are also feeling the burden of newfound crowds. [WSJ]
All you hand-sanitizer loyalists out there might want to slow your roll a little bit with the obsessive disinfecting. It may be doing more harm than good to your skin. [Pantagraph]
Last night, Vivienne Westwood was bestowed a prestigious award that most beauty legends would kill for—let alone a fashion icon who dabbles in perfumes and powders. Inducted into the Circle of Champions by the Fragrance Foundation, Westwood was honored at an industry-only affair at Claridge’s Hotel in London for making “notable and newsworthy contributions to the fragrance industry,” according to an article from Cosmetics Business. Following in the footsteps of fellow Brit Paul Smith, who won the award last year, Westwood was selected for an ability to continually create fragrances “evocative of decades gone by,” including Boudoir in 1998, Libertine in 2000, Anglomania in 2004, and Boudoir Sin Garden and Let It Rock in 2007. Her personal perfume strides have been noteworthy, for sure, and there’s also the fact that she produced Joe Corre, co-founder of Agent Provocateur, the brand that took home last year’s FiFi for best women’s prestige fragrance. A good nose apparently runs in the family.
