Hannah Ferguson in a Triumph-ant return, with spot aimed at new mothers

Lucire staff/3.26




Hannah Ferguson returns in a sequel to Triumph’s earlier animated promotion, Find the One. Find the One, Again sees the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model in both live and cartoon forms, this time following her character after giving birth to her first child.
   Two new characters, Luna and Jade, make their dĂ©but, with the premise being similar, although aimed at new mothers.
   Triumph says the new promotion helps women reclaim their shape and finding a perfectly fitting bra, and as with last year’s promotion, it is done with a fun, entertaining approach.
   The animation sees Hannah finding life overwhelming and her body confidence affected by the birth, and Luna and Jade encouraging her to find herself again.
   The new product being pushed is Triumph’s Magic Boost, with three bras, Push-Up, Lift-Up and Shape-Up.
   The score is by Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown, performed by a professional orchestra and choir, with lead vocals by Broadway singers J. Elaine Marcos, Ta’rea Campbell, Betsy Wolfe and Leslie Kritzer. It was recorded at Avatar Studios in New York.
   The spot broke earlier this week on German TV, and will next be seen in Italy and Portugal (April 10), Switzerland (April 11), Poland (April 21) and Denmark (May 2).

Gal Gadot talks Wonder Woman, Criminal—video interview

Lucire staff/23.47

Former Lucire cover girl Gal Gadot arrived in London as the actress of the moment, coming off the high of Warner Bros.–DC Comics’ Batman v. Superman, in which she plays Wonder Woman.
   Gadot spoke of her ‘interesting first day of shooting’ Criminal with Kevin Costner, who has both acting and directorial duties on the new film.
   She called her co-star a ‘talented, good-hearted man’, noting that it was a different experience working with an actor who is also a director. ‘There’s something more into it,’ she says.
   She notes that she is ‘really busy’ after Batman v. Superman, coming off an international press tour to promote the film, and then getting straight into the stand-alone Wonder Woman movie for Warners.
   Fortunately, her family life remains relatively normal and she is still enjoying everything. As to London, she says she loves everything about the city ‘except the weather’.
   Costner, meanwhile, calls Gadot a ‘wonderful woman’ and a ‘great screen partner’, and tells ITN that their first scene saw him sporting long hair and a beard—both of which were fake, although he had that very look just before he began filming.

Lucire staff/4.38

Gigi Hadid’s in the Zeitgeist right now: not only has she appeared in a spread in Vogue with boyfriend Zayn Malik—himself rustling up plenty of headlines in the music world with his solo career—her make-up artist, Julianne Kaye, who currently has the reputation for being behind the beauty for today’s “it girls”, has been spreading the word with her tips on controlling acne.
   Kaye’s tips have appeared in E Online, including using green concealer over your blemish as it will neutralize the red, and pad on the concealer afterwards. She also has tips on dealing with cystic acne using eye drops (that’s not a typo) and acneic skin (try milk of magnesia), which are summarized in the video below, as well as in the original link.
   We’ve also a video on the Vogue shoot from Napoli—you can get a glimpse of the couple’s very romantic photographs as released by the magazine in the second one below.

Lily Cole shines a light on social enterprise at Chivas Regal’s the Venture panel discussion

In line with the movement that began in the early 2000s for more responsible brands—something this title, along with organizations such as Medinge Group in Sweden, have promoted—Chivas Regal’s the Venture search seeks to find and support the most promising social entrepreneurs creating profitable businesses that also makes a positive impact on people. Lily Cole added credibility as well as celebrity power to the panel discussion in London’s Natural History Museum on Thursday, and debated whether social enterprise would ever grow to a point to solve some of the world’s biggest problems, and whether big business, government and investors should do more.
   Cole herself is a social entrepreneur, having founded Impossible, a social giving network that enables people to share their time, skills and objects. She was joined by Sonal Shah of the Beeck Center for Social Impact and Innovation at Georgetown University, Rajeeb Day, CEO of Enternships, and Thomas Davies, CIO of investment platform Seedrs.
   Alexandre Ricard, chairman and CEO of Pernod Ricard‏, hosted the event.
   Also in attendance were 27 start-ups who had been chosen to compete for a share of the Venture’s $1 million fund. The finalists were taking part in a programme created by the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship at the SaĂŻd Business School at Oxford University. The public can vote for their favourite finalist between May 9 and June 13, and determine how the first $250,000 in funding is split among the finalists. They already feature at the Venture’s website at www.theventure.com.
   The remaining $750,000 will be awarded at the Venture’s final in July.

Lucire staff/4.18



Model Cara Delevingne will model the spring–summer 2016 Chanel eyewear campaign, wearing a tweed and cotton cap, a tweed jacket and a sleeveless top with silver embroideries and ribbon bows from the Chanel Airlines ready-to-wear collection. The campaign breaks in April.
   The advertising will showcase frames from the Plein Soleil and Bijou 2016 collections, and a mirrored mask with a laser-engraved effect from the spring–summer 2016 ready-to-wear catwalk show.
   The Plein Soleil collection has a two-tone look (black merges into blue on the cat-eye frames, and black to white on the oval optical) and is inspired by tie-dye motifs. The Bijou collection features the camellia motif extensively.
   Delevingne appears in blue when modelling the mask, and in more conventional lighting when showing off the regular frames.
   Karl Lagerfeld himself chose Delevingne and shot the campaign.
