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 ftÂČ, 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.

Perriam, the luxury merino label from Christina Perriam, will show at ID Dunedin Fashion Week next week. The event begins on April 18 and runs to April 26. The last time she showed was under the Christina Perriam label in 2002.
   Her autumn–winter 2015 collection is structured and edgy, using New Zealand-sourced merino wool mixed with other fabrics and textiles, including merino leather. ‘It’s an amazing texture that you simply don’t find in deer pelts. When you look at a merino sheep, their skin is so wrinkly and that’s why the texture of the leather is really interesting,’ says Perriam.
   Preciosa, the Czech crystal brand HQed in the famed town of Jablonec nad Nisou, has collaborated with Ohio-born designer Johny Dar, known for his extravagant art, on a work called The Queen of Pearls. The sculpture features Preciosa crystals and took Dar 300 hours to complete. The company says it has been valued at €927,000.
   Finally, we learn that one of the “pre-parties” for Coachella, on April 9, was hosted by Australian streetwear label Nana Judy, partnering with One Oak nightclub, Tinder, and Up and Down, at the ChĂąteau at Lake La Quinta. Celebrity names attending included Joe Jonas, Leonardo DiCaprio, Josh Henderson, Kendall Jenner, skateboarder Corbin Harris and model–blogger Mimi Elashiry.

A spring in their steps: Secret Room’s pre-MTV Movie Awards’ suite

As usual, Rita Branch and Amy Boatright’s Secret Room Events lined up a docket of product talent filled with delights for girls and boys of all ages. However, young Reef Carneson was the true VIP of the day. At age six, he is a cancer survivor as well as the first pediatric bonemarrow recipient in his native South Africa. Unfortunately, he developed Graft Versus Host Disease (GVHD) after his procedure. When a diagnosis of skin cancer made matters worse, his family came to the United States for further treatment. To help offset the costs for his family, Rock It 4 Reef has been established to keep Reef and his family going strong in his quest to beat his illness. This year, generous Style Lounge attendees have enabled the Secret Room to collect for little Reef’s health care.
   As befitting any pre-awards show fĂȘte, a red carpet led into one of the brightly lit ballrooms of the elegant SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills. But this was no ordinary trade show. A sparkling hall showcased a hit parade of new products, accompanied by high-energy pop blasting out of a small device that looked like a coffee pot. In spite of its appearance, the Archt One 360-degree sound system did not dispense Lavazza or Starbucks. Instead, a pulsating brew of multi-directional sound poured straight from the Singapore-based inventor’s Iphone, through the device and to the farthest corners of the ballroom. Information for this percolating Kickstarter invention can be found at archtaudio.com.
   Another impressive device we discovered is Cheero’s Ingress Power Cube, offering 12,000 MHz of juice that allows the user to charge two devices while flying, camping, mountain biking or surviving on a deserted island. Even castaways and hermits need their music and games. Cheero has several models of chargers available, including one that comes with a flexible toy “transformer” whose eyes light up when the gadget is fully charged. Speck was on hand with a colourful array of Ipad, tablet and phone covers with mid-century modern patterns in vivid turquoise, teal, yellow and vermilion.
   One literal highlight of the day is best used at night-time, and not only by children. Total Dreamz by Aloka Designs USA offers a variety of hypnotic, colour-changing nightlights. Little girls will fall asleep alongside a rainbow-tinted horse, puppy, or fairy, while little boys will ride a train or spaceship to Dreamland. Children over 18 will be mesmerized by the psychedelic heart and butterfly designs that bring an aurora borealis effect to their bedroom. Sleepyheads can program these night lights to turn off automatically when the fun is over.
   After splitting a surprisingly tasty, probiotic-packed Effi Bar made of raw dates, cashews, and goji berries, we moved on to the clothing and accessories. Wiley X Eyewear outfitted attendees with the same sleek model of shades worn by Bradley Cooper in American Sniper. Although designed for men, these are quite flattering on women. Lightweight yet durable, they cool off the eyes by cutting the glare effectively. It is interesting to note that this brand also provides eye protection for the Australian military.
   No style lounge is complete without introducing designers who turn trash into fashion. Protecting the earth while making us look good: we’ve all seen or worn recycled denim, restructured vintage clothing, and jewellery created from old glass. Made from recycled plastic bottles harvested in the US, Underground Chic has a collection of stylish handbags, clutches, and totes in a variety of fun, crayon-coloured hues. One style looks and feels like genuine, soft brown suede. It’s easy to forget that these cute accessories were once bottles that could have ended up clogging our oceans.
   Anje, also based in New York, has created a line of luxurious yet minimalist cashmere garments in multiple shades of grey, charcoal and black. Although expensive, the generous, flowing silhouettes flatter all figure types. They are true and timeless investment pieces for one’s wardrobe.
   So, what about colour? After all, it is spring here in North America, and not only the Ipads should be attired in teal and vermilion. When choosing the most flattering gowns, celebrities the world over reach out to color consultant Jill Kirsh. She provides one-on-one as well as online consultations for international clients to determine the best colour palette based on the individual’s hair colour. She also customizes make-up to complement each client’s hair colour, skin tone, and wardrobe, thereby ensuring a uniform look.
   We had already shared our second better-for-you-than-yoghurt Effi Bar (this time it was coconut and cacao) when we started to explore the multitude of beauty products and services. Joey New York introduced their newest skin care product, This N That, a multi-use liquid to shrink pores and exfoliate; their Keep It Up, described as an instant natural facelift, is one of their best-selling products. Coconut water and ginseng, used in some Joey New York products, lift and tighten sagging skin and pesky jowls. The new Cellusanaskin care line rejuvenates the skin with the same stem cell technology used for burn victims. Cellusana looks forward to the launch of injectable stem cells, which eliminate wrinkles and other imperfections, without the use of paralysing toxins.
   EMK presented attendees with a gift of plant placental anti-ageing face serum with firming kelp and clarifying tea tree oil. Used together with their Supra night cream and their firming eye gel, we can look forward to waking up with brighter, more refreshed skin. The line has a devoted following in Malaysia and Dubai, where hot climates wreak havoc upon delicate skin. Our first whiff of Kuumba Made botanically infused organic body care and first-aid products brought back memories of the late 1960s and early 1970s, of bell-bottomed jeans, incense and free love. We were particularly drawn to the jasmine, white ginger and black coconut scents. The all-natural scented coconut oil relieves feminine dryness, and the vanilla-infused variety improves intimacy. And speaking of which, Matt Titus is the first nationally recognized male matchmaker to develop a fragrance collection. The YOU collection (also known as the Scent of a Woman collection) consists of three distinctive fragrances sold together, each with notes of fresh green tea, warm musk or feminine florals.
   Korean bath houses are becoming increasingly popular outside the Korean community. Men and women enjoy a variety of saunas, hot and cold plunge pools, and body treatments au naturel. Tikkun Holistic Spa is one of the better known, high-end Korean spas with heat therapy and infrared rooms that help soothe tired muscles and tense moods. The ladies of Tikkun are delighted to introduce Lucire readers to an indulgent cleansing ritual designed for our “lady bits”. One just sits on the specially designed ‘V’ treatment chair (‘A’ treatment for the boys), and allow the steam to do its thing. Afterwards, one retires to either the clay or the salt room at the spa to further detoxify and relax. A day at Tikkun is an all-day affair. Karen’s Skincare is the secret behind the effectiveness of Tikkun’s facials. In particular, the Advanced C and E Infusion Complex diffuses highly concentrated vitamins to combat wrinkles, age spots and sagging skin. Made in the US without animal testing, Tikkun’s products are paraben-free and customized for various skin types.
   Of course, time is ultimately a thief, and steals our youthful appearances no matter how carefully we take care of ourselves. Dr Jason Emer offers facial contouring with fillers as well as surgical and non-invasive procedures. Boasting clients like Sofia Vergara and Cara Delevingne, Dr Emer offers the Venus Treatment, guaranteed to lift and tighten one’s face, neck or body.—Leyla Messian, LA correspondent, with Elyse Glickman, US West Coast Editor

Adriana Lima opens library at Pequeno Principe children’s hospital, funded by IWC watch auction

Last November, IWC Schaffhausen announced that it would auction a rare pilot’s watch, called ‘The Last Flight’, in platinum, with the entire proceeds going to the Fondation Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry pour la Jeunesse, which will use them to help a children’s hospital in Brazil. That project has now been realized at the Pequeno Principe children’s hospital in Curitiba, Brazil, and IWC Schaffhausen ambassador and model Adriana Lima went there on Tuesday to declare its new library and recreation centres open.
   Lima was joined by the hospital’s director, Ety Cristina Forte Carneiro, its CEO, Jose Alvaro Carneiro, Olivier d’Agay, great-nephew of Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry and director of the Fondation Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry, Fabiele Fortes, one of its current patients, IWC regional director Michel Cheval and marketing director StĂ©phanie Aubry, in inaugurating the new spaces.
   Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry was not only an aviation pioneer, but the author of The Little Prince, Southern Mail and Night Flight, known to many children worldwide.
   IWC Schaffhausen has partnered with the Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry foundation, which helps keep the French aviator and author’s legacy alive, for the last 10 years.
   Pequeno Principe is the largest public children’s hospital in the country.
   The foundation netted SFr 40,000 from the Important Watches auction held by Sotheby’s in GenĂšve. The Last Flight, a chronograph, was a limited-edition watch produced to commemorate Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry’s last flight 70 years ago. Only 17 were made.

Olivier Awards

From top Gemma Arterton (Made in Dagenham) in DsquaredÂČ 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 KhloĂ«, 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 DsquaredÂČ 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 LĂłpez 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.

Coachella fashion summarized: from Kylie Jenner’s turquoise hair to Paris Hilton’s crochet outfit

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 BeyoncĂ© 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 SĂŁo 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.
