Lea Michele is one of those actresses with a face destined to appear in a big ad campaign. Over the years she's gained quite the following, for her red carpet and beauty style as much as for her on screen character in 'Glee'. It was only a matter of time then before she got snapped up by a major brand and L'Oréal is the one that has done just that.
Yesterday the beauty giant confimed that the actress will follow in the footsteps of Jennifer Lopez and Eva Longoria by serving as their latest spokesperson. 'Lea is fun, committed and genuine with an inspiring sense of style, in total resonance with the brand's values,' L’Oréal Paris global brand president Cyrill Chapuy said and by the looks of it, the partnership really works. Granted, the campaign image isn't particularly ground breaking but there's no doubt that Michele looks beautiful in it.
Last week Clarins announced that they've decided to jump on the digital wave by launching their own beauty blog and now L’Oréal Paris are doing the same. Instead of going down the blog route, though, today they confirmed that will soon launch a series of YouTube videos called 'Hairspray Confessions'.
According to WWD, the idea behind the videos is to celebrate the brand's signature Elnett Satin Hairspray and so far they've tapped everyone from Coco Rocha to Iris Apfel to appear in some behind-the-scenes confessionals. At the moment the format of the videos is still unclear but what we do know is that the project is part of a five-part series and will be hosted by Derek Blasberg and will start rolling out next month.
This season saw some great British designers and brands come back to London Fashion Week to celebrate the event's 25th anniversary with Matthew Williamson and Burberry being two amongst many. Despite the comeback of these great brands, we couldn't help but feel the absense of Giles Deacon who left London this season to show his collection in Paris. Although, it appears that we might have missed him more than he's missed us.
When asked if he was disappointed that he wasn't in London during the festivities he told Grazia Daily: "No, not really because I was in Paris. The thing with fashion week is that we're always working. I heard there were some great shows though, and that it was a really buoyant event. I'm a big fan of Christopher [Kane]'s work and I think Roksanda [Ilincic] does some beautiful things. I also think Burberry put on a fantastic show getting that front row."
