Beauty Bytes: Pure Luxury

August 17th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Christy Turlington, Karolina Kurkova and Liya Kebede by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin for Donna Karan Woman

Donna Karan has always stood for a celebration of modern femininty and the latest fragrance launch from her eponymous line captures that ideal perfectly. Donna Karan Woman is an elegant tribute to the many sides of being a modern woman and the result of a dynamic collaboration between some of the most prominent female talents working. Famed architect Zaha Hadid created the impressive, sculptural bottle, celebrated perfumer Anne Flipo crafted the intoxicating blend of sandalwood, Haitian vetiver and orange blossom and the stunning campaign was shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin and features 3 of extraordinary beauties of substance Karolina, Christy & Liya. The end result is truly a showcase for the power of women and the sensual scent itself is absolutely irresistible.

Francophiles and fragrance addicts rejoice – Serge Lutens comes stateside to Barney’s New York offering their previously Paris only scents at the Madison Avenue location.

Actress Jessica Chastain becomes the latest face of YSL Beaute, taking a starring role in the brand’s campaign for Manifesto. She also shares an adorable story about wearing Opium in the 5th grade.

Aline Weber shows off some beautiful hot pink lids on Into the Gloss‘ exploration of vivid eyeshadow color inspired by Dior Couture.

Nail innovator Jin Soon Choi – woman behind some of the greatest editorial nail moments ever – talks about her brand new line of polishes.

 

Tom Ford Beauty never fails to impress us with its commitment to all out glamour. We’re especially taken by the latest campaign imagery featuring Snejana Onopka wearing a glossy crimson lip and looking every inch the supermodel. You can almost smell the scent of Lavender Palm wafting through the air just by looking at this shot. Get the look on your own with a swipe of the oh so chic Tom Ford Ultra Shine Lipgloss in Lost Cherry.
