Caroline de Maigret the new Lancôme muse: brand wants to connect with Parisian attitude

Filed by Lucire staff/July 7, 2014/22.13

Model and music producer Caroline de Maigret is the new muse of Lancôme, the company calling her choice ‘an obvious conclusion’.
   Lancôme says that de Maigret was chosen for her nonchalance and sophistication, as well as for her musical work (she created, with partner Yarol Poupaud, Bonus Track Records and Yarock Productions), her runway experience, and her aristocracy (descended from Polish and French royalty). She is described by Lancôme as ‘the favourite subject of the most renowned photographers of the last two decades; a woman from the fashion world, but one who prefers style in its every form to fashion itself; a strong woman, above all, with great intellectual curiosity and an exceptional grasp of people and things.’
   The collaboration with de Maigret will begin in September as she heads off on an international tour for her book How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits, a humorous look at the Parisian attitude, written with Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan and Sophie Mas.
   Lancôme says this intellectual wit is in line with its own brand: ‘The brand saw Caroline de Maigret as an expert with whom they could have an intelligent discussion in order to better transmit a different, liberating form of beauty, a smart mix of indulgence and perfectionism, carefreeness and commitment.’
   The second stage sees de Maigret work on a make-up collection for 2015.
