Cara Delevingne’s status as one of the celebrities of our era is further confirmed with TAG Heuer selecting her to be one of its new ambassadors. Calling her ‘the most disruptive “it girl” of the moment’, TAG Heuer has tapped into the model’s social media following (9 million on Instagram, 2 million on Twitter, 1¬∑7 million on Facebook) to promote its range to a new audience.
   She was welcomed into the TAG Heuer family at the Salle Melpom√®ne at the √Čcole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, posing with a lion cub, in front of an audience of 150 VIPs and journalists. Tying in with the lion cub, the new TAG Heuer campaign will be hashtagged #Dont­Crack­UnderPressure.
   The lion is a symbol that Delevingne identifies with, and she had one tattooed on her right index finger in mid-2013.
   Delevingne wore a Karl Lagerfeld jacket at the event.
   Jean-Claude Biver, CEO of TAG Heuer and President of LVMH Watches Worldwide, presented her with a TAG Heuer Formula One Steel and Black Ceramic Chronograph set with diamonds.
   Biver said, ‘The TAG Heuer family is not just an idea, it is a team, with true team spirit. We needed someone disruptive yet elegant like Cara to open our minds to the brashness and boldness of today‚Äôs youth. TAG Heuer has set its sights on ‚Äúit-ness‚ÄĚ, and Cara is just the person to help us get there.’
   The Daily Mail reported concern from Dr Neil D’Cruze of World Animal Protection, who told the newspaper, ‘Lion cubs are not photo props. Their health and well-being should not be compromised.
   ‚ÄėThey belong in the wild, not draped over a celebrity just to sell a designer watch.’

Paris shows solidarity in Sunday’s March for Unity

The March for Unity that took place today in Paris was announced as the largest demonstration in the history of France, with an estimated 1¬∑5 million to 2 million on the capital’s streets. The interior ministry believes that there had not been so many since the liberation of Paris in August 1944. A number of people from around the world, politicians and celebrities walked the streets throughout the afternoon.
   Lucire‚Äôs Paris editor Lola Cristall took these photographs as she joined others to commemorate and celebrate the victims of Paris’s terror attacks last week.
   The deaths included staff at the satirical Charlie Hebdo, where cartoonists Charb, Cabu, Tignous et Wolinski (the pen names for St√©phane Charbonnier, who was also editor, Jean Cabut, Bernard Verlhac and Georges Wolinski) and police officers Franck Brinsolaro and Ahmed Merabat were slain in a massacre on Wednesday. Police officer Clarissa Jean-Philippe was killed the following day in a related attack, and four civilians were killed in a siege on Friday.
   ‚ÄėWhile my domain is predominantly the luxury and entertainment sector, the pictures might be of interest to some people to see how so many came together in the city to support the innocent journalists, artists and victims,’ said Cristall.
   ‚ÄėThe city is coming together as one. They were phenomenal artists,’ she added.
   Those in the march chanted, ‘On est tous Charlie’ (‘We are all Charlie’) and ‘Charlie Charlie Charlie,’ holding up banners and placards, reading everything from ‘Je suis Charlie’ (‘I am Charlie’), which began trending on the day of the massacre on Tumblr and other social media, and ‘Nous sommes Charlie’ (‘We are Charlie’) to ‘Je suis Muslim’ (‘I am Muslim’). French flags, hearts and Charlie Hebdo covers were also seen in the march.
   World leaders also participated in the march, including French president Fran√ßois Hollande, HM Queen Rania of Jordan, German chancellor Angela Merkel, Spanish prime minister Mariano Rajoy, Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas, Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu, British prime minister David Cameron, Malian president Ibrahim Boubacar K√ęita, Polish prime minister Ewa Kopacz, Turkish prime minister Ahmet Davutoglu, and Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko. Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov, Egyptian foreign minister Sameh Shoukry, US attorney-general Eric Holder, European Council president Donald Tusk, and UK opposition leader Ed Miliband were also present.
   Reporters sans fronti√®res were critical of the presence of Davutoglu and Shoukry, as their countries had restricted press freedoms.
   Public transport was free in Paris to discourage private car use for the march.
   Earlier in the week, Jean Paul Gaultier and his staff posed for a photograph where they held up ‘Je suis Charlie’ print-outs, showing unity with the fallen journalists.

Ellen DeGeneres your most-searched celeb for 2014; Miss France 2015 article tops our chart

Lucire staff/8.17

Above Candice Swanepoel was the most-searched professional model in Lucire’s online news pages this year, coming in sixth.

In 2012, Keira Knightley was the most searched-for celebrity in the news section of the Lucire website. In 2013, that honour went to HRH Princess Madeleine of Sweden, followed by Knightley and Penélope Cruz. They are, largely, what you would expect from a fashion magazine.
   The 2014 rankings were a surprise when we began crunching the data before Christmas. In first place, talk show host and selfie queen (or was it talk show queen and selfie host?) Ellen DeGeneres: this year, everything from the Oscars to a homeware line meant she was on the consciousness of readers the most.
   Showing you can‚Äôt keep a Doctor down, Matt Smith surprisingly leapt into second place, after showing up at Cannes post-Doctor Who. Smith has plenty of fans out there, and Whovians apparently form a good part of the internet, getting the Eleventh Doctor this unexpected honour.
   Camille Cerf, the new Miss France, found herself in third place, which is not a huge surprise given that our article on the subject is the first one online. Our former cover girl, and the new Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot came in fourth, while HRH Princess Madeleine, still getting plenty of press attention, was fifth.
   Candice Swanepoel, was the most searched-for professional model, finding herself in the second half of the top 10. Cl√©mence Po√©sy came seventh, showing that France remains firmly on the radar when it comes to fashionistas. Rio de Janeiro-born model Camila Alves found herself in eighth place.
   Honor Dillon, now Honor Carter, has plenty of admirers, and might net herself a few more with the signing of her husband Dan to a rugby club in France. The sole Kiwi in the top ten found herself in ninth spot this year. Rounding off the top ten was MńÉdńÉlina Ghenea, the Romanian-born, Milano-based actress and model.
   Our biggest surprise was that Lupita Nyong’o did not appear‚ÄĒwe even called her our ‘Woman of the Year’ on our Tumblog.
   Pageant news was top, since we were the first to announce both Miss France and Miss Universe New Zealand‚ÄĒCamille Cerf and Rachel Millns‚ÄĒwhile the Brancott Estate World of Wearable Art Awards was the third-most-read news article of 2014 here (another news outlet beat us to it, thanks to a WordPress glitch). An advertorial for the Sports Illustrated Air New Zealand safety video was fourth, which perhaps is no surprise given that the cover announcement, historically, is well read. A ‚Äúproper‚ÄĚ fashion article, on Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York‚Äôs fall‚Äďwinter 2014‚Äď15 collections, came fifth. Matt Smith, along with Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, and Gemma Arterton, helped get an article from the Festival de Cannes into sixth place.
   Overall, traffic for the top 10 was down due to regular Wordpress glitches that prevented some articles from being picked up properly‚ÄĒhighlighting how online publishers can now find themselves at the mercy of software.
   Hard data aside, pop over to the main part of the site where we name our news-makers of 2014‚ÄĒEllen DeGeneres is in there, but there are some surprises, too.

A Lucire special promotion

Above Clémence Poésy.

Chlo√© has managed to be ahead of the curve this decade, from signing two up-and-coming actresses at the beginning of the decade‚ÄĒImogen Poots and Camille Rowe Pourcheresse‚ÄĒand, more recently, Cl√©mence Po√©sy, all of whom exhibit different facets of the brand when it comes to its fragrances.
   Chlo√© has managed to be true to its youthful, natural image, while injecting a sense of seduction and modernity. It‚Äôs completely in line with the Chlo√© clothing line‚ÄĒand it‚Äôs imperative that the two work side by side.
   The fragrances, which are from Coty Prestige, are distinguished not just by their scents, but by the faces that promote them. Poots, Rowe Pourcheresse and Po√©sy speak to the younger demographic sought by Coty. Their natural look‚ÄĒthe actresses themselves are regularly photographed wearing nude make-up‚ÄĒties in perfectly with the natural scents of the Chlo√© fragrances, which are always subtle and never over the top. Chlo√©, which was a trend-setting brand in 1950s Paris, happily works in its home city in its promotions.
   Chlo√© Love Story, which was launched in July, is a perfect example, featuring orange blossom, neroli and jasmine stephanotis. The signature Chlo√© scent, meanwhile, is fresh, floral and smooth, with pink peony, freesia, lychee as top notes, magnolia flower, lily of the valley, and rose in the middle, and cedarwood, amber and honey as basenotes. Roses de Chlo√© features Damascene rose and magnolia, while See by Chlo√© has bergamot and apple.
   The range is one of the most youthful and well defined that we know.
   Chlo√© is having a busy Christmas season, focusing on the messages of love, joy and happiness‚ÄĒwishing you a happy holiday season from Chlo√© fragrances. The New Year is going to see even more promotions: as Chlo√© leads up to the 40th anniversary of its fragrances in 2015.

There’s more news from the Kering group as the company continues to shake up its brands: Puma has announced that Rihanna is the creative director of its women’s training line.
   The singer joins Usain Bolt and Mario Balotelli as a global brand ambassador, and attended her first meeting in Germany with the design team on Monday.
   Rihanna says she will be ‘all over it’ when it comes to her involvement with the line. Puma says her influence on the women’s training line will be felt early in 2015.
   Kering wants to boost Puma’s profile alongside Nike and Adidas, and Rihanna’s celebrity status should earn it new adherents.
   Puma CEO Bj√łrn Gulden said in a release, ‘Signing Rihanna is a fantastic step for Puma. Her global profile, her charisma and individuality, her ambition‚ÄĒall these things make her a perfect ambassador for our brand. She also aligns perfectly with the values Puma strives for: to be confident, brave, determined and joyful. With a strong portfolio in football, running and motorsport, finding an inspiring partner for women‚Äôs training was very important. Rihanna was a natural choice for us. We‚Äôre delighted to have her as a partner, and we‚Äôre looking forward to what‚Äôs to come.’
   Adam Petrick, Puma’s global brand and marketing director, said, ‘Rihanna brings joy to audiences around the world but also ignites and awes. Puma admires her for never waiting for the next big thing, but more so for driving what happens next‚ÄĒin fashion, style, music and soon to be‚ÄĒsports. We can’t wait to empower women worldwide with Rihanna‚ÄĒshe demonstrates a body confidence and determination that is the exact representation of the Puma Woman.’
   Rihanna has already represented brands such as MAC, Giorgio Armani, Nivea and Renault.

Dita von Teese has unveiled a new collection, called XXXtian, as part of her lingerie range, in collaboration with Christian Louboutin.
   XXXtian, pronounced ‘X X Christian,’ features an exclusive silk toile de jouy print developed by Louboutin for his shoes and handbags in his spring‚Äďsummer 2011 collection.
   The toile shows von Teese in her gilded birdcage dancing with her feather fans, and being fitted for custom Louboutin fetish boots, says the company.
   ‚ÄėChristian and I have been dear friends for years, and he has created many custom pairs of shoes for my burlesque shows. When this toile originally appeared in his shoe and handbag collection, I was honoured to have such a tribute,’ said von Teese. ‘I‚Äôm so thrilled that he generously allowed me to offer this risqu√© print in luscious Italian silk in my Tulip collection, plus a glamorous 1940s style neglig√©e and dressing gown for the ultimate luxury lingerie experience.’
   Louboutin said, ‘The Toile de Jouy is the essence of French 18th-century feminine sophistication. No one can be closer to a modern Marie-Antoinette than Dita, her curves and wit celebrated on a canvas dedicated to adorn either a shoe or divine lingerie.’
   The XXXtian collection comprises an underwire bra, corselette, garter belt, thong, bikini, a high-waisted brief and, for the first time, two chemises and a robe.
   It is available at Myer.com.au and glamuse.com.

Frida Giannini, Patrizio di Marco to leave Gucci; Giannini’s last collection to be autumn ’15

Gucci creative director Frida Giannini and CEO Patrizio di Marco will leave the label shortly, parent company Kering SA, formerly PPR, announced Friday.
   Giannini will depart after showing her autumn‚Äďwinter 2015 collection at the end of February, and no successor has been named. She will have worked for over 12 years at Gucci, and has been creative director since 2006. She had succeeded Tom Ford at the label.
   Di Marco, who has been with Gucci since 2009, will leave at the end of the year, with his role taken up by Marco Bizzarri, who is presently Kering’s luxury couture and leather goods’ division. Like di Marco, Bizzarri is formerly of Bottega Veneta.
   Gucci’s revenues have been dropping, suffering from a perception that its brand is not exclusive enough. Demand in China is down this year, while third-quarter sales showed a 1¬∑6 per cent fall. Turnover has also fallen in recent years.
   Kering had already named new CEOs in October at Bottega Veneta, Brioni and Christopher Kane as part of an internal overhaul. It also owns Stella McCartney and Puma.

News in brief: Chanel’s Paris‚ÄďSalzburg collection; Lady Gaga, Eva Longoria in NYC; Anja Rubik launches perfume

Karl Lagerfeld has unveiled the 13th Chanel M√©tiers d’Art collection in Salzburg, Austria, recognizing its historical connection with Gabrielle Chanel (she got the inspiration for the Chanel jacket there, at the Hotel Schloss Mittersill, then owned by Baron Hubert von Pantz, with whom she had a fling). Lagerfeld discusses his collection in the video clip below, which showcases the Paris‚ÄďSalzburg collection, featuring Cara Delevingne, who not only closed the show, but is the face of the collection itself.
   The presentation, at the Leopoldskron ch√Ęteau, showcased the fine work of the feather-workers, milliners, tuckers and bootmakers. Lagerfeld took inspiration from traditional Austrian clothing, revisiting the dirndls and lederhosen, using loden, tweed, felt, leather and satin cashmere mix, taffeta and lace. Evening dresses featured pin-tucked fronts, frills, pleats and voluminous sleeves.
   ‚ÄėYou can take inspiration from the apron, from the sleeves, from all the little details, but you have to forget it all and we do it in a new way,’ said Lagerfeld. ‘The star of Salzburg is about the jacket, but what I like is the craftsmanship, the embroidery with all the feathers. There is an unbelievable craftsmanship in all those clothes: most of the embroidery includes stones and many feathers, it‚Äôs like fur, it‚Äôs like flying fur. If you look at them closely, it‚Äôs quite unbelievable; when you see them or you touch them. So I tried, with beautiful fake pearls, to make interesting pearl jewellery that looks like embroidery. It‚Äôs the updated version of what I think it should be, could be, and had to be today.’
   In New York celebrity sightings, Lady Gaga has been spotted wearing the Blake wide-brim hat in oyster felt with pearl trim from Eugenia Kim’s fall 2014 collection last week, while Eva Longoria wore a Ralph & Russo spring‚Äďsummer 2014 white silk cr√™pe cap sleeve embellished jacket with structured peplum, pencil skirt and black alligator belt to the ninth annual L’Or√©al Women of Worth event.
   L’Or√©al Paris notes that Longoria’s look uses True Match liquid foundation in C2 Rose Vanilla, the Volume Million Lashes Excess in Extra Black, Color Riche Le Kajal in 501 Oriental Black, the Super Liner Brow Artist Plumper in medium to dark, and the Elnett Volume Excess hairspray. Blake Lively, very much this year’s L’Or√©al Paris celebrity with all the attention she garnered at Cannes, was also at Women of Worth, her look accomplished with True Match in N3 Creamy Beige, the Glam Bronze Powder Duo in 101 Blonde, the Flash Lash Butterfly in Intenza, Txt Wave Creating Spray, and the Nude Rose Color Riche La Palette.

   Polish model Anja Rubik, 31, meanwhile, has released her new perfume, Original. At Colette in Paris, she discusses some of her beauty tips from her career, including using eyelash curlers and moisturizing your skin. Rubik also reveals that Brigitte Bardot is her ‘ultimate beauty’, and rates Charlotte Gainsbourg and Patty Smyth highly.
   The perfume scents are those that have followed her over the years, namely white lilies and green tea, while the black-and-white imagery was inspired by her love of black-and-white photography and the work of Robert Mapplethorpe.
   Carrera y Carrera is going from strength to strength: the Madrid-based luxury jewellery brand has opened a boutique in Macau, as a first beach-head into China. Manuel Carrera, a fourth-generation descendant of the Carrera family who founded the brand, was on hand with CEO Svetlana Kupriyanova.
   Finally, in the main part of our site, travel editor Stanley Moss fits museums and great food into 48 hours in Torino, while publisher Jack Yan tests the BMW X1 Sdrive18d‚ÄĒreaders might like the title.
