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.’

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

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.

Chrissy Teigen and Jack Guinness front Ugg’s Iceland-set winter 2015 campaign

Model Chrissy Teigen and DJ Jack Guinness front Ugg’s winter 2015 marketing campaign, which d√©buted Friday.
   The campaign, called This Is Ugg, was shot in Iceland, and emphasizes the range’s weatherproof, waterproof and water-resistant qualities. It will run through February 1.
   The campaign is also designed to connect emotionally to consumers, and sees Teigen and Guinness “unplugging” in Iceland to reconnect to the environment and experiences, including discovering local treasures and reflecting on a snow-topped glacier, says the company.
   The women’s collection includes the Emalie boot, with waterproof leather and a water-repellent wool blend; the Simmens boot with a water-resistant shaft and a cozy lining; and the Adirondack Boot II with waterproof full-grain leather, cuffable suede shaft, and an exclusive Vibram outsole for snowy weather.
   The men’s collection sees the Munroe boot with oiled suede and waterproof leather, rated to ‚Äď20¬įC (‚Äď4¬įF) and featuring the Vibram outsole; the Classic Mini D√©co with a moisture-wicking interior and sophisticated stitching at the heel counter; and the Butte pairs with cuffable, waterproof leather and nylon, finished with the Vibram outside and moisture-wicking lining.
   Ugg has launched two videos already, including one entitled Soul Food, featuring Teigen indulging in food and beauty. ‘Life goes by so quickly so it is really important to create time and space for yourself. Sometimes you have to think of your surroundings and how blessed you are: Close your eyes, take it all in and be in the moment. In Iceland we were surrounded by so much beauty and so much simplicity¬≠ it’s just food for the soul,’ she says in the video.
   In On the Rocks, Guinness reflects on the dramatic Icelandic landscape: ‘It’s rugged and magic. I want to meet the people, listen to the music that’s popular there, and learn about their culture. Does living in Iceland create a different outlook on life? An original √¶sthetic and way of looking at things? I want to drink and dance with the locals, and try and see the world through their eyes. It sounds cheesy but it’s true! I’m really, really excited ‚Ķ I’ll keep a diary while I’m out there, sometimes writing helps me share thoughts that would otherwise go unexpressed and be forgotten. I don’t just want to remember what I did, I want to remember how it made me feel.’

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.

The $300 million budget set aside for Spectre, the 24th Eon James Bond film, will need a marketing bonanza. After Aston Martin revealed its DB10‚ÄĒ10 cars built exclusively for the film and not general sale‚ÄĒand Jaguar Land Rover confirmed that they would be supplying a C-X75 and Range Rover vehicles, Belvedere Vodka is next, launching its global partnership with James Bond at the Bond in Motion exhibition at the London Film Museum last night.
   Guests included Lily Cole, Tinie Tempah, Amber Atherton, Pixie Geldof, Douglas Booth, Kim Hersov, Ella Catliff and Christophe Navarre, while Belvedere president Charles Gibb played host.

   The marketing programme commences in February, with point-of-sale promotions. Updates will be put on Belvedere’s Instagram account.
   Spectre, which is named after the fictional terrorist organization from the Ian Fleming novels, will premi√®re on November 6, 2015. Daniel Craig will return as the super-spy, and the cast includes Monica Bellucci, L√©a Seydoux, Andrew Scott, Dave Bautista, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, and Christoph Waltz as the villain.

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.
