District notes that Kendall Jenner, the new face of Estée Lauder, wears a top from its range. The blush pink top retails for US$108. Blake Lively had also recently chosen District for a photo shoot for her new website, Preserve.


   Charlie’s wants New Zealand customers to try their Straight Up cola, and decide whether it should become a permanent part of its range. Kiwis are invited to post their feedback with a thumbs-up or thumbs-down selfie, or simply write a few words, at Charlie’s Facebook or Instagram, using the hashtag #straightupcola.
   Finally, Carrera y Carrera, the Spanish jewellery brand, has launched new visuals with model Alejandra Alonso as its new face. The campaign has been conceived by MAFIA, and features items from Carrera y Carrera’s new Seda Imperial range, as well as from Círculos de Fuego, Bambú and Ruedo. It will break in publications internationally this month.

Estée Lauder has signed model Kendall Jenner for digital, TV, print advertising and social media campaigns.
   The company sees Jenner’s personal social media following as an asset, able to bridge them with fashion and entertainment, while targeting younger consumers.
   She has 30 million fans across Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, and is believed to be the most socially connected model.
   Estée Lauder global brand president Jane Hertzmark Hudis calls Jenner ‘the ultimate Instagirl. We are excited to leverage her image, voice, energy and extraordinary social media power to introduce Estée Lauder to millions of young women around the world.’
   Jenner says she had known since Paris Fashion Week, but had to keep the news under wraps.
   â€˜It honestly feels like a dream to represent such an iconic beauty brand: it is an incredible honour and quite humbling,’ she says.
   She also features in a 13 pp. editorial shot by Patrick Demarchelier in the December 2014 issue of Vogue.
   Jenner had first walked in Marc Jacobs’ fall 2014 show, then at the Chanel haute couture show, followed by an advertising campaign for Givenchy for autumn–winter 2014. She has since walked for Balmain, Dolce & Gabbana and Fendi. She has worked with photographers such as Demarchelier, Mert & Marcus, Mario Sorrenti and Mikael Janssen, and has appeared in Love, Vogue Paris, W, and Interview.
   She follows in the footsteps of luminaries including Willow Bay, Paulina Porizkova, Elizabeth Hurley, Gwyneth Paltrow, Liu Wen, and Julia Roberts.

Nanette Lepore for Origins launches limited-edition holiday collection in NYC

This past Wednesday I attended the Nanette Lepore for Origins launch of their limited holiday collection at Lepore’s showroom in New York City. This collection was inspired by Lepore’s travels, from Morocco to India to Venezia, and coincides perfectly with Origins’ earth-sourced approach to beauty.
   Nanette’s showroom was the perfect place for the event, showcasing her line’s æsthetic alongside cult-classic products from Origins such as the Clear Improvement charcoal mask and the Ginger Soufflé body cream. I was also introduced to products from the hair line, Ojon, such as the Rare Blend Tamer, a flyaway fixing hair mascara perfect to keep in your purse for humid nights. All the products went into the Nanette Lepore-designed make-up bag that is also great for transitioning your look from day to night as a clutch. The print is colourful and clearly travel-inspired and made of 100 per cent recycled cotton.
   Along with all the products, there was a photo booth and a product styling photo op where you can style the contents of your bag with your own items and supplied common purse items. I added my NYC Metro card, headphones, compass, and lip balm to the Origins and Ojon items I received and the assortment of items they had to choose from. I’m quite proud of my first product styling experience and would love to see other Lucire readers style a #WhatsInMyBag photo. Let me know if you do and tag @Lucire (on Twitter and Instagram). I can’t wait to see what you create!—Jamie Dorman, New York Beauty Editor

Availability: Origins retail stores and Origins.com
Price: Exclusive limited edition cosmetic bag plus a travel size Drink Up hydrating lip balm with any US$65 purchase

Top international hairstylist Richard Kavanagh presents Rodney Wayne’s summer ’15 looks

Lucire staff/14.43

Pin It




Top and centre The ‘Sunrise and Shine’ look from Rodney Wayne: cut and colour from NZ$250. Prep hair with Redken Rootful 06, blow-dry with a large flat paddle brush, flat iron for definition, and finish with Redken Fashion Works 12 hairspray. Above The ‘Dusk-oh’ look: cut and colour from NZ$280. For naturally curly hair, apply a generous amount of a styling paste such as Redken’s Rough Paste 12 to shampooed and conditioned, towel-dried hair. Hang head upside-down and dry with a hot hairdryer and diffuser attachment. Use a shine serum such as Redken All Soft Argan-6 Oil for a little extra polish. Finish with Redken Control Addict 28 hairspray.

Rodney Wayne’s latest campaign, breaking this month, gets a jump on summer, with a bright 1970s pop-rock vibe mixed with an androgynous, rave-culture 1990s look, harking back to the international cultural influences of those decades.
   Entitled Do Summer, the campaign is proudly New Zealand in flavour despite its international inspirations, with Rodney Wayne’s global creative director Richard Kavanagh encouraging women to make a bolder statement this coming season with a new look. ‘The smart way to go is with fabulous hair that can take you from the pool to the party and places in between. Our latest looks are designed to help you make the most of the season in individual style,’ says Kavanagh.
   Kavanagh has driven the campaign, photographed by Steven Chee, directed by Lachlan McPherson, with Rodney Wayne’s Matt Butcher, Adrine Singh, Hannah McKenzie and Christie Beard assisting on hair.
   The five looks, ‘Sunrise and Shine’, ‘Dusk-oh’, ‘Honey Dipped’, ‘Twice the Nice’ and ‘Bourdin Patrol’, pay homage to the season, all using Redken products for preparation, finishing and protection.
   ‘Sunrise and Shine’ has been inspired by Annie Lennox and the rave culture of the early ’90s, with copper shades, using a halo technique of colouring, and shorter under-layers. ‘Dusk-oh’ was inspired by the 1970s’ soul sisters, enhancing curls à la Donna Summer and Lorde. ‘Honey Dipped’ takes its inspiration from Michelle Pfeiffer’s Elvira Hancock character in Scarface, with a centre part and honey-dipped ends. ‘Twice the Nice’ sees braids at the core, whether they are herringbonem four-strand, French or classic. Finally, ‘Bourdin Patrol’ takes its name from photographer Guy Bourdin and the 1970s’ hyper-real styles of the models in his shoots.




Top ‘Honey Dipped': cut and colour from NZ$280. Create lived-in luxury with Redken Duo Shield 07 before blow-drying hair with a large round brush. Add a little Redken Powder Grip 03 at the roots for body and texture. Carry some Pillow Proof Two Day Extender to keep your style fresher longer. Centre The ‘Twice the Nice’ cut and colour starts at NZ$280. Redken Rough Paste 12 will help control hair while it’s being braided. Blow-dry with Redken Satinwear 02 for heat protection and light control. Bottom Getting the ‘Twice the Nice’ look: set hair on a small curling iron using a heat-active texturizer like Redken Fabricate 03 for heat protection and light hold. Once hair is set and cooled, brush it out and spray generously with Redken Forceful 23 strong hold hairspray for extra shine and hold.

The Peninsula Beverly Hills is known for its sophistication, adding a European flair in a Californian setting. It was a perfect location for Organic Spa Magazine to host the launch of their 2014 Los Angeles Experience Wellness Media and Eco-Celebrity Event. Celebrities included John Salley, Katie Chonacas, Jennifer Taylor and their stunning October cover girl Nancy O’Dell. With natural holistic services offered in cabanas by the poolside on the rooftop, overlooking marvellous views, the event was based around the beauty and delicacy of naturally infused products.
   Eileen Fischer’s stylish, restrained fashion appeared alongside Nubian Heritage, founded by Richelieu Dennis and Nyema Tubman, who presented a slew of high-end natural skin care products. Others tapping in to their organic creativity included Ikove, Ayushi, Jurlique, the Organic Face, Susie Frazer, Two Bunch Palms, Organics Brasil, Plantlife, Shankara, Aura Cacia, Tsuiya, Gaëlle Organic, Malebranche, Nordic Naturals, Green Spa Network, Vana Retreats, Immunocologie, Ojai Valley Inn and Spa, Natracare, Kari Gran, Riviera Maya, Dahliana Skincare, Fifth Dimension Clothing, Golden Door and Shea Moisture. The brands had one special factor in common: they brought the mind, body and soul together in the midst of natural products.

   Travelling cross-country, we arrive in New York where Alyson Dutch hosted her Valentine’s Day Gift Guide Event. The Artisan Group was in attendance to present everything from jewellery pieces to skin care products. Brainy Pac presented their conveniently designed hats, where separate compartments permit the wearer to store away important items, including their gadgets, while staying chic. Signature Soul Socks introduced their comfortable socks, with solid soles that can easily slide into a boot. Lulu DK’s jewellery-like metallic temporary tattoos, in gold or silver, illuminate. Grande Lash-MD is perfect for the woman interested in elongating her eyelashes, with a product made out of exclusively natural ingredients. Dollipop Cosmetics featured their radiant eye shadows consisting of a range of various shades from lusterless matte to shimmering gloss.
   In Paris, Deux A’s head designer and founder, Anna-Liza, presented her spring 2015 collection during an intimate gathering in Paris. The collection entitled Naga Botanicus added her personal take on floral creativity, with vibrant, vivid shades and slightly psychedelic features. Casual, basic knee-high skirts to hip-hugging dresses are accompanied by large floral headdresses.—Lola Cristall, Paris Editor

   She will promote the company’s Chromatics hair colouring range.
   Discovered by Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy, she has featured in some of the top fashion titles in the world, and made the cover of Elle Brasil in 2011 (below).

Above Paula Sweet photographs exclusively in Morocco for Lucire: the secrets of Berber Saffron Tea. From left to right, Amanjena GM Gabriel Louzada, Paula Sweet, Abdelhadi.

In an upcoming edition of Lucire: letter from Marrakech. An exclusive report from travel editor Stanley Moss which includes a private visit behind closed doors at the original home of Yves Saint Laurent in the Medina, then the lost recipe for saffron tea, a Berber delicacy prepared for our readers at Amanjena in Marrakech.
   In beauty news, Jessica Alba has publicly declared her love of Jane Iredale’s real gold shimmer powder in OK. Says Alba, ‘If I’m going to show some leg, I’ll mix a little into my body lotion too. It creates a subtle shimmer that makes cellulite lumps and bumps a tad less noticeable.’ The powder is the headline product commemorating the brand’s 20th anniversary year. And they really mean ‘real gold': it contains 24 ct gold leaf and mica, and it’s available alongside silver and bronze shimmers in a limited-edition Jane’s Signature Gilded Collection tin (£32). The gold and silver can be used on top of the cheekbones as a highlight, while the bronze can be applied over the body.
   Meanwhile, publisher Jack Yan has been testing more cars in the ‘Living’ section in Lucire. There’s the BMW 116i here, a real driver’s car for those seeking something small, while he dons his halo and channels his Simon Templar in his test drive of the Volvo S60 T6 AWD R Design Polestar.

Sponsored video: Moroccanoil wants to hear your stories that are #inspiredbywomen

Lucire staff/13.09

A Lucire special promotion


Lucire has featured Moroccanoil for years—we like to think we were one of the insiders that let readers know of this beauty range from Canada first.
   Moroccanoil is known for its luxury hair care approach, with performance-driven formulas that help nourish and restore hair to a natural, silky finish. With modern environmental factors conspiring to hurt hair, Moroccanoil’s light formula helps reverse those adverse effects.
   When Moroccanoil first started, oil treatments for hair were rare, but founder Carmen Tal persisted, and the range has caught the attention of celebrities and hair professionals around the world.
   Last month, Moroccanoil appointed its first ambassador, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who began gracing our pages at roughly the same time as the oil treatments. It’s a great campaign, because we finally get to see the real Huntington-Whiteley on a wider scale—she’s far more articulate and fun than you might expect—and it taps in to an idea that everyone will find familiar.
   The campaign asks viewers to create a brief video, hashtagged #inspiredbywomen, telling the world which woman has inspired them, sharing their stories. There are no gimmicks or prizes: the company wants to get these stories out and begins with its own six women, chosen by Tal herself, in a video series directed by Bryce Dallas Howard.
   Huntington-Whiteley is one of the six, joined by Chrissy Beckles (who literally fights for abandoned dogs in Puerto Rico, by going into the boxing ring to raise funds through charity bouts), Rebecca Welsh (whose HALO Foundation provides underprivileged children a chance to unlock their creativity), Kavita Shukla (whose FreshPaper venture has revolutionized food storage in 35 countries), Allyson Ahlstrom (who created Threads for Teens, a free boutique serving at-risk girls), and Jessica Matthews (who invented the Soccket, a soccer ball that creates electrical energy).
   Says Tal, ‘Inspiration is about feeling empowered. If we can empower women, the sky’s the limit.’
