Rihanna Reveals Fenty Beauty Holiday Collection

She has done it again! Just two weeks after Rihanna’s cosmetics line Fenty Beauty hit Sephora stores around the planet, the singer cum designer declared a capsule collection, just in time for the holiday season. Rather than this central Fenty Beauty range, the Galaxy Collection will include a collection of appropriately bold and festive shades, such as a whole palette of metallic blues, pink, gold, silver and purples. There will also be an addition of liquid lining and lively lipsticks. Since its launch, Fenty Beauty has cosmetics fans lined up in front of Sephora stores worldwide.

The cosmetics range, which includes 40 distinct shades of base is Rihanna’s first expedition to the world of beauty and has caused a stir within the business.   “It’s not rocket science you understand,” she told BBC News. “It’s a shame that this is becoming a minute. I feel like this should have been happening all together.” Basma Khalifa, a wonder industry analyst, predicts that this abrupt disruption may produce a much-needed wakeup call for your business. “It sort of triggered a ripple impact anxiety, which is exactly what was required. So I feel that the future of style and the future of attractiveness is looking up with regard to individuals beginning to listen and starting to attack the issue, which may just be a good thing. This is bigger than Rihanna, if that’s even possible.” The Galaxy Collection will be available only at Sephora from October 13.

L’Oreal Heiress Liliane Bettencourt Dies at 94

French businesswoman and heiress into the L’Oreal beauty emporium Liliane Bettencourt has died, as her family confirmed on Thursday. According to reports, she passed away peacefully on Wednesday night in her house in Paris at age 94. Bettencourt joined her daddy, L’Oreal founder Eugene Schueller, in the family business at age 15, mixing cosmetics and labelling bottles of shampoo. She married French politician Andre Bettencourt at 1950 and inherited the family fortune at the time of her father’s departure in 1957.

Bettencourt was also known as the richest woman in the world. Before this year, Forbes magazine estimated her net worth to be at US$39.5 billion (AUD$49.5 billion), which makes her the richest woman one of the 20 wealthiest people in the world. Her departure is expected to have a significant effect on the company’s future. While crucial banks Nestle and the Swiss food company entered an arrangement with founding family not to increase their stakes during Liliane Bettencourt’s life, this arrangement will stop within six months after her passing. So far, Bettencourt and her children still own 33% of the makeup manufacturer. “I want to emphasise on behalf of our loved ones, our whole commitment and devotion to L’Oreal and to renew my confidence in its President Jean-Paul Agon and his teams globally,” Franchise Bettencourt-Meyers, daughter of Liliane Bettencourt, said in a statement.

La femme d’affaires Liliane Bettencourt est morte dans la nuit du 20 au 21 septembre à l’âge p 94 ans. Elle aura consacré sa vie à conforter l’hégémonie de L’Oréal, premier groupe mondial de cosmétiques, fondé par son père. Rien ne prédestinait la femme la plus riche du monde, à devenir, au soir de sa vie, l’héroïne d’un feuilleton politico-judiciaire aux rebondissements shakespeariens. Mêlant conflits familiaux, intérêts d’Etat, cupidités insondables et bataillons d’aigrefins sans vergogne. — Photo : Liliane Bettencourt chez elle à Neuilly-sur-Seine (Hauts-de-Seine), vers 1980.

Highlights of London Fashion Week SS18

Kaia Gerber convinced has a busy schedule for a 16-year-old. While last week we watched her runway debut at Calvin Klein in New York, this week that she was strutting her stuff at the Burberry show in London. Just this time she had to share the runway with her brother Presley. The real highlight of this series, however, was, of course, the collection itself. After a few difficult seasons for the tag, Christopher Bailey won critics over with a show that “fizzed with youthful zest” while preserving Burberry’s British spirit. Meanwhile, outside the former courthouse in Circkwell, animal activists had shot place. The series was forced to start late as protestors attempted to enter into the backstage area and assaulted fashion icons Kate Moss and Anna Winter. Other events, like the Versus Versace and Gareth Pugh shows, were targeted by the anti-fur protestors.

Ironically, faux fur seems to be as popular as ever. Designer Hannah Weiland has made it her mission to make beautiful designs produced from cruelty-free fabrics. Her new collection features an array of clothes made from faux fur and faux patent leather. Molly Goddard has built a small party girl reputation for presenting her layouts in less or more unorthodox celebratory configurations. This year, version Edie Campbell got the party began, walking the runway in biker boots, holding a glass of champagne and an e-cigarette. She had been followed closely by a herd of versions, dance, posing, loving themselves. “I wanted it to be fruity,” the designer said after the series. “I keep using the drug analogy, which is probably a bit inappropriate.” Tommy Hilfiger closed the fashion week spectacle with looks out of Georgia May and Lizzie Jagger, Gigi Hadid along with also a performance from the Chainsmokers.
