The Body Shop’s Tea Tree range is celebrating its 12th year in production with a limited-edition super-sized collection of natural, skin-friendly products.
   From its launch in 1993, exclusive to Australia and New Zealand, the demand for the little bottle that packs a punch allowed for wider global distribution one year later. Now, as one of the best sellers, the Body Shop sells one bottle of Tea Tree Oil every eight seconds globally!
   The tea tree leaves are sourced from the foothills of Mount Kenya and, in line with the Body Shop’s ethics and values, are harvested and distilled through Fair Trade-approved farm work. From this comes the concentrated Tea Tree Oil. The oil itself targets blemishes, without any nasty chemicals, and leaves your skin feeling and looking clearer. Now, as part of a limited-edition collection, Tea Tree Oil comes in a 20 ml bottle, and the Tea Tree facial wash and Tea Tree toner are now available in larger 400 ml sizes. The range is in store from August 24.—Alex Barrow

Actress Mila Kunis, who has promoted her association with Gemfields enthusiastically since becoming its brand ambassador, appears in the company’s new film, directed by Jeff Burton.
   Gemfields, which celebrated a major ruby find in Mozambique last month, continues to promote the gemstones in its latest spot, with Kunis wearing designs by Fabergé, Georg Jensen, Spinelli Kilcollin, Miiori and Gyan of Jaipur.
   The responsibly sourced Mozambican rubies from Cabo Delgado that feature reflect, refract and shimmer in close-ups and in shots where they come into focus, giving them a mysterious effect.
   In a release, the actress said, ‘Working on this film with Gemfields and Jeff Burton was an amazing experience. I was given the opportunity to try and capture the allure and passion that rubies evoke in an unexpected way. I believe it will help to inspire a whole new generation to fall in love with this rarest of gemstones.’
   Burton is a well respected photographer who has worked on campaigns for Tom Ford, Yves Saint Laurent and Céline, among many others, and his work has been exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and the Barbican Centre in London. It has been published in Vogue Paris, Vanity Fair, Numéro, and The New York Times.
   Gemfields says its Montepuez ruby mune in Mozambique is believed to be one of the largest sources of responsibly sourced rubies in the world.
   The film can be viewed in full at www.gemfields.co.uk/rubies. A version appears below.

Former Lucire cover girl Nicky Hilton, wearing a $100,000 Valentino wedding gown with a long train and custom-made Christian Louboutin heels, married banking heir James Rothschild at the Kensington Palace Orangery on Friday. There was only the tiniest glitch of her train getting caught under the wheels of the Bentley that took her to the venue. Sister Paris served as bridesmaid, and guests included Kate Beckinsale and Petra Ecclestone. Insights came courtesy of siblings Paris and Barron via Instagram for those outside the milliard-dollar club.
   Kylie Jenner, 17, is in the news again with her hair colour, this time a blue tint at a Bellami Beauty Bar event in Hollywood on Thursday launching her Kylie Hair Kouture extension line. It’s an icier pastel hue than the startling blue she had in 2014, and it’s similar to the colour she adopted in April very briefly, while her white jumpsuit revealed a plummeting neckline.
   Our final video is a profile of 23-year-old actress Lorenza Izzo, who is married to Eli Roth. Hailing from Chile, Izzo began in the modelling world before moving into acting, and she will star in The Green Inferno later this year, which her husband directs.

Suki Waterhouse is the new face of Redken, the company announced yesterday, joining the likes of Lea T. and Soo Joo Park.
   At 23, Waterhouse is one of the most sought-after models today, as predicted in an earlier issue of Lucire. In recent years, she has represented Burberry, appeared in the film Love, Rosie with Lily Allen, and was one of the most-photographed celebrities at Glastonbury. She has covered British Vogue, Elle UK, Allure UK and other titles.
   â€˜Suki is known for her chic style and effortless cool,’ said Shane Wolf, global general manager of Redken 5th Avenue in a release. ‘She’s striking, multi-talented and dynamic. She brings a great energy to Redken.’
   The first collaboration will be for Redken’s Diamond Glow Dry Oil this August, a product which reaches New Zealand shores in November. The company has released its first images, and more will appear on Redken’s and Waterhouse’s social media, including her Instagram at @sukiwaterhouse.

With so much going on in the fashion world 24–7 we at Lucire thought you might need a quick Instagram update on what’s been happening in the lives of models and designers in the last week as we chronicle this world.
   With the spring–summer men’s runway shows in the last couple of weeks, most of the designers have runway shots or close-ups of details: we see that in Vivienne Westwood, Gucci and Valentino’s photos. Moschino released this beautiful illustration by Natalia Sanabria of Daphne Groeneveld in a look from their men’s show.
   The models’ Instagrams are a bit more interesting: Gigi Hadid and Liu Wen are giving us a sneak peak into their different photo shoots, the former with her sister and latter a shot of herself from Vogue. Cara Delevingne’s latest doesn’t have much to do with fashion at all: she is traveling around the world at the moment, promoting her new movie, Paper Towns. Kendall Jenner was also promoting something a little unexpected: a signature lipstick collaboration with none other than Estée Lauder, whom Jenner now represents.—Fenella Clarke

As its brand ambassador, actress Mila Kunis attended Gemfields’ ruby launch party in London on Tuesday night.
   Kunis wore two pieces from Fabergé’s Devotion collection: a pair of earrings set with diamonds, 10 oval Mozambican rubies totalling 9·32 ct, and a ring set with diamonds and one 5 ct oval Mozambican ruby. She also wore Fabergé’s Regalia diamond and ruby bracelet set with 176 Mozambican rubies totalling over 17 ct.
   This party celebrated the launch of Gemfields’ newly found ruby deposit in Montepuez, Mozambique, one of the most significant of its type in the world. Gemfields has previously specialized in high quality emeralds and amethysts from Zambia, until finding this deposit in Mozambique.
   Gemfields is a leading supplier of responsibly sourced coloured gemstones and has experts on hand to make sure that they are not harming the environment or its people. ‘It’s really a luxury to own jewellery and gemstones. If you’re in the position to do so, you’re fortunate. Given that, I think it’s important to pay attention to what you’re wearing and where it came from,’ said Kunis, who has been the brand ambassador for Gemfields since 2013.
   The actress looked positively glowing, only nine months after giving birth, accompanying the jewellery with a white dress, a pair of white stilettos and a pop of red lipstick to match the rubies.—Fenella Clarke
