Detroit is undergoing a renaissance, at least in terms of its reputation across the US. A few years ago, Eminem promoted Chrysler as being proudly from Detroit, a city that has been through it all, and John Varvatos now celebrates the place with a new store, opening with a VIP party featuring a live performance by Alice Cooper.
   It’s no surprise, then, to learn that Chrysler had a hand in this party, too, and both Varvatos and Cooper are Detroit natives, proud that their city is emerging out of some of its toughest years.
   The 600-strong ‘black carpet’ party, at which Cooper belted out ‘Nice Guy’, ‘Wheels’, ‘Billion Dollar Babies’, ‘Be My Lover’, ‘Lost in America’, ‘Dirty Diamond’, ‘Bite Your Face Off’, ‘Brown Sugar’, ‘Break on Thru’, ‘Foxy’, ‘My Generation’, ‘18’, ‘Poison’, and ‘School’s Out’, was hosted in association with Dan Gilbert and Bedrock Real Estate.
   Other VIPs included model Kate Upton, Justin Verlander (Detroit Tigers), Michael Bolton, Nicole Curtis, Eric Ebron (Detroit Lions), Chris Chelios (NHL Hall of Famer), R&B and soul singer Dwele, Fiat–Chrysler top brass such as Al Gardner and Olivier François, Nate Forbes, Jim Ketai, Dan Mullen, Devin Gardner (NFL prospect) and Mojo in the Morning hosts Thomas ‘Mojo’ Carballo, Shannon Murphy, and Spike.
   Varvatos introduced the evening in his home town, saying, ‘For me, this is more than a store opening celebration. It’s a kick-off celebration of things to come to the city of Detroit. The future is bright and it’s just the beginning!’
   Cooper noted afterwards, ‘It’s great to be back in Detroit rocking out with John Varvatos.’
   Gardner said in a release, ‘The Chrysler brand has a long-standing partnership with John Varvatos that has evolved over the years, so when he asked us to be a part of this event taking place in our own backyard, we immediately said, “Yes.”’ Chrysler showed off its rebodied 300 on the black carpet, helping cement its position as a Detroit icon.
   Gilbert said, ‘The immeasurable energy felt in the store solidified that the arrival of J. V.’s iconic fashion and rock ’n’ roll brand in downtown Detroit is truly destined for success. With construction well underway for the M-1 Rail along the Woodward Corridor, combined with the rapid growth of retail, restaurants and tech companies opening in downtown Detroit, a grand celebration such as this one is the first of many more to come to Detroiters.’
   The new 4,600 ft², two-storey store is located at a brownstone at 1500 Woodward Avenue, and is owned and managed by Bedrock Real Estate Services. John Varvatos’ full line of menswear is represented, including John Varvatos Collection, John Varvatos Star USA and Converse by John Varvatos.

Olivier Awards

From top Gemma Arterton (Made in Dagenham) in Dsquared² on the red carpet at the Olivier Awards. Dame Judi Dench and Kevin Spacey with his award, recognizing his contribution to the London theatre. Best supporting actress winner Dame Angela Lansbury (Blithe Spirit).

After a five-day tour of their Armenian homeland, Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West arrived in Israel, and had their daughter, North, baptized. The couple, along with Kardashian’s sister Khloë, had the service at St James’ Cathedral, a 12th-century Armenian church in the old walled city in Jerusalem, in what was described as a ‘minimalist’ ceremony. West wore white, while Kardashian wore a peach and beige ensemble.
   Gemma Arterton got plenty of notice at the Olivier Awards at the weekend, wearing a Dsquared² black dress with a plunging neckline. Arterton was nominated for her role in Made in Dagenham, but lost to Penelope Wilton, who won the best actress award for Taken at Midnight. But it was Dame Angela Lansbury who was the winner getting most of the attention at the end of the ceremony at the Gielgud Theatre in the West End: at 89, she took home the best support actress award for Blithe Spirit. Other celebrities walking the red carpet were nominees Gillian Anderson (A Streetcar Named Desire) and Nicole Scherzinger (Cats), and Kevin Spacey, who received an award for his contribution to the London theatre from Dame Judi Dench.
   Our final video today is from the 2015 MTV Movie Awards at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, hosted by Amy Schumer. Fashion highlights on the red carpet were from Jennifer López in a black blazer with a plunging neckline and Scarlett Johansson in hot pink. Shailene Woodley (with four awards), Robert Downey, Jr and Mark Ruffalo also feature. We’ll have our report from the pre-awards’ suites very shortly.

Triumph launches animated Find the One film for the perfect bra, starring Hannah Ferguson

Lucire staff/15.03

A departure from the usual approach of showing top models in intimate apparel, Triumph has launched an animated movie, Find the One (hashtag #FindTheOne), to promote the perfectly fitting bra.
   The two-minute spot, which will air from April 13 in Germany, the UK and Italy, evokes a romantic, Disney-esque style that many wearers will be familiar with, along with a memorable musical number entitled ‘Find the One’. However, instead of finding Prince Charming, the song is about the ‘life-changing experience’ (Triumph’s words) of finding the right brassière.
   The main animated character, Hannah (right), is based around Triumph and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model Hannah Ferguson, who appears in real-life form at the end of the spot.
   In true fairy-tale form, Hannah appears with her friends Tammy and Mara, who head to the boutique with her, Fred the Frog and the Fairy Godmother, who appears as a dress form.
   Stories AG’s Tobias Fueter and Yves Bollag were behind the animation and the characters. Fueter said, ‘Triumph is a fantastic brand for which to create an emotional story. Women easily identify with animated characters, which explains the success of animated fairy tales all over the world.’
   The score was composed by Tony Award-winning composer, Jason Robert Brown, with the vocal performed by three Broadway singers. The Prague Filmharmonic Orchestra performed the score.
   Eszter Szijarto, Head of Brand Marketing at Triumph, said, ‘It is really important for us to find new ways of bringing to life the bra finding journey so that we continue to inspire customers to go for a fitting and find the perfectly fitting bra—“The One”.’
   Through the spot, Triumph wishes to encourage women to look at getting properly fitted for a bra as part of its campaign, aiming to help 500,000 women this year.
   To celebrate the spot, Triumph is running an international competition for its customers, with the hashtag #animateme. The winners will receive an illustration of themselves in the animated style of the film. Details of the competition will be revealed on April 22 and will run through May 13.
   Ferguson wears the Triumph Magic Wire bra at the conclusion of the film. The innovative, award-winning bra features silicone instead of underwire, making it more comfortable to wear.
   Triumph’s Find the One page can be found at triumph.com/findtheone. Customers can visit a Triumph boutique for a fitting or book online.

Kylie Jenner, on Instagram

With nearly 21 million followers on her Instagram, 17-year-old Kylie Jenner will be an influencer, and her hair choice—going with a turquoise wig—could spark some copycats out there who decide that this is the “in” shade. Her latest photo sporting the look (above), at the Coachella festival, has already netted a million likes in just over 12 hours. Our first entertainment video goes through Jenner’s hair history, with the dark locks at the start, before her bleaching and ombre trend.
   Both Jenner sisters, Kylie and Kendall, headed to the festival this weekend. Kendall hit the 1970s vibe with a cropped top and max skirt, while Kylie also went with a cropped top, sleeveless vest, and white shorts. Fergie channelled the ’70s vibe, too, with her brown fringed waistcoat, denim shorts, and ankle boots on day one; and a fitted lace dress and black fedora for day two.
   Paris Hilton, who was at Kari Feinstein’s pre-Coachella suites, and her sister, former Lucire cover girl Nicky Hilton, went with white crochet ensembles (bikini top for Paris; dress for Nicky); one of our 2014 news-makers, FKA Twigs, wore a simple chiffon dress; and Beyoncé similarly went with chiffon with her maxi dress and black leather ankle boots.

Dove encourages women to see themselves as beautiful with new campaign; summit session announced

Lucire staff/21.08

Dove wants to change the way women think about themselves with its new campaign, called Choose Beautiful. According to its 2010 research, 96 per cent of women do not choose the word beautiful to describe how they look. Its new five-minute film, shot in San Francisco, Shanghai, New Delhi, London and São Paulo, encourages women to choose beautiful to describe themselves, to radiate their inner confidence and become happier.
   The film shows a building with two doorways: ‘Average’ and ‘Beautiful’. Those who chose the latter reported that they felt better, having made a statement publicly about how they viewed themselves.
   It ties in with Dove’s #SpeakBeautiful campaign to encourage women to understand how words impact on self-esteem and confidence.
   Dove will partner with Women in the World this year, a summit that brings together inspirational female leaders to discuss women’s issues. This year’s summit in New York, on April 22–4 at the David H. Koch Theater, includes Meryl Streep, Helen Mirren, Freida Pinto, Thandie Newton, Ashley Judd, former senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, Diane von Furstenberg, Barbra Streisand, Christiane Amanpour, Obiageli Ezekwesili (Bring Back Our Girls), author Elif Shafak, North Korean human rights’ activist Yeonmi Park, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Zainab Salbi and others. Dove will host a session on the 24th, ‘The Beautiful Brain’, discussing beauty and choice with Newton, Dr Stacie Grossman Bloom, Assistant Professor, Department of Neuroscience and Physiology at the NYU Langone Medical Center, and Dr Rénée Engeln, Professor of Psychology, Northwestern University.
   The five-minute film is shown below, and Dove has set up a site on Tumblr.

Redken’s Guido on Christian Dior and Balenciaga’s autumn–winter 2015–16 hair looks

Lucire staff/2.31

Redken has released details of the hairstyles at Paris Fashion Week that it contributed to, namely the autumn–winter 2015–16 collections of Christian Dior and Balenciaga.
   Guido, its global creative director, gave Christian Dior a science fiction-inspired ponytail look. In a release, Guido said, ‘I created this very long, asymmetrical side ponytail at Christian Dior this season, but it’s not your standard, fun, side pony. There’s something sinister and almost strange about it. It’s sophisticated, but very sci-fi and has somewhat of a child-like quality. First, I prepped and blow dried the hair with Redken’s Satinwear 02 Prepping Blow Dry Lotion, so it’s super-straight and smooth. Then, I created a deep, exaggerated side part and gathered the hair into this smooth, low side ponytail, getting a
clean finish with Redken’s Fashion Work 12 hairspray. It has a strange sense to it because it’s so asymmetrical and has such extreme length. It’s really a continuation of the woman we’ve been seeing this season, who is more done with a very modern, futuristic feeling.’
   For Balenciaga, ‘At Balenciaga, I created this very chic, sculpted chignon on the top of the crown that really accentuates the long neck and gives you a beautiful, elegant silhouette. It’s kind of futuristic-feeling in the way it’s moulded to the head, but it’s still very polished and stylized, which makes the style look very new to the eye again. I used Redken’s Guts 10 to blow dry the hair straight, pulled it up into a high ponytail right on the crown and then moulded it into a flat chignon with Redken’s Forceful 23 Super Strength hair spray. I left out two pieces of hair on either side of the head to create the illusion of little sideburns. Though the shape is based on something classic, the shiny, lacquer-like finish gives it a new, modern feeling,’ said Guido.
   Lola Cristall’s fashion week summary will be published online shortly.

The look at Christian Dior

1. After shampooing, apply a nickel-size amount of Redken Extreme Length Primer (NZ$35, available in New Zealand from April 2015) to wet hair and rinse out.
2. Brush Redken Extreme Length Sealer (NZ$33, from April) on damp hair from mid-lengths to ends.
3. Spray Redken Pillow Proof Express Primer (NZ$36) all over damp hair.
4. Apply a nickel-size amount of Redken Satinwear 02 Prepping Blow Dry Lotion (NZ$36) to damp hair, working into the hair from roots to ends.
5. Use a comb to create a deep side part and blow-dry smooth using a round brush.
6. Gather hair into a low side ponytail, ensuring the sides are super smooth, and secure with an elastic.
7. Take a small section of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic to hide it.
8. Spray Redken Fashion Work 12 (NZ$36) versatile working spray all over to get a smooth, clean finish.

The look at Balenciaga

1. Spray Redken Pillow Proof Express Primer (NZ$36) all over damp hair and comb through.
2. Apply a quarter-size amount of Redken Guts 10 volumizing spray-foam mousse (NZ$38) to damp hair, working into the hair from roots to ends.
3. Blow-dry hair straight using a flat brush.
4. Gather hair into a high ponytail, leaving two small pieces out on each side, and secure with an elastic at the crown of the head.
5. Twist ponytail into a wide, flat chignon that’s moulded to the head, and secure with U-shaped pins.
6. Thoroughly spray Redken Forceful 23 Super Strength Hairspray (NZ$36) and Redken Shine Flash 02 (NZ$38) for a lacquer-like finish.
7. Flat iron the two small pieces of hair on each side of the head to create the illusion of sideburns.

The Victoria & Albert Museum’s Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition has proven to be one of its most popular, with 70,000 tickets sold two days before it opened to the public.
   The retrospective has 66 additional garments that were not seen in the earlier exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and has an extra third more space.
   The opening on Thursday night saw David and Victoria Beckham (video below), Kate Moss and Jamie Hince, Salma Hayek and François Pinault, Naomi Campbell, Erin O’Connor, Colin Farrell, Poppy Delevingne, Eva Herzigova and FKA Twigs attend.
   Victoria Beckham wore a black strapless gown from her own collection at the V&A gala. Moss wore a design from the pre-autumn 2015 collection from the Alexander McQueen label, while Campbell donned a design from McQueen’s spring–summer 2007 collection.
   Moss herself appears in holographic form in the exhibition.
   For those who cannot get there in person, Tinie Tempah offers a private view on the BBC’s Iplayer, with a personal tour online on March 14, at 9 p.m.
   McQueen committed suicide in 2010 on the eve of his mother’s funeral.
   The exhibition, in partnership with Swarovski and others, runs from March 14 to August 2, with admission at £16.

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, playing Derek Zoolander and Hansel from their roles in the 2001 hit film Zoolander, appeared to spontaneous applause at Paris Fashion Week, where Paris editor Lola Cristall is compiling her full report.
   The pair appeared on the catwalk at the Valentino ready-to-wear autumn–winter 2015–16 show, and posed with their “blue steel” looks—a term popularized by the movie about the fictional male model, Derek Zoolander.
   Stiller wrote and directed the original film, and it remains well known within the fashion industry.
   A sequel will be released on February 12, 2016.
   Stiller and Wilson posed with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour backstage.
