Lady Gaga: Valentino New Perfume Ambassador for Voce Viva

Valentino has announced the launch of its new perfume Voce Viva created by Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli with Valentino Beauty.

Imagined as a voice to spread a message around the world, Valentino Voce Viva invites everyone to touch hearts, inspire others and live their dreams.

Expressing the Maison’s values of inclusivity and individuality, Voce Viva celebrates one of the women’s most intimate sense.

To invite all individuals to voice their highest dreams and live them, Valentino is pleased to announce Lady Gaga as the face of its new perfume.

One of the greatest modern voices, Lady Gaga is the only artist to receive an Oscar, Grammy, BAFTA and Golden Globe in the same year for her outstanding work in A Star is Born.

The voice of a generation, Lady Gaga has inspired millions of people around the world for more than a decade. With Valentino, the singer shares more than her Italian origins. A symbol of respect for individualities and for everyone to find their place, Lady Gaga speaks to the same values as those of Valentino.

“Be yourself, love who you are, and never give up your dreams.” Lady Gaga

“Lady Gaga means freedom, self-consciousness, pure heart. Her participation in this campaign elevates the symbolic power of the project to the highest level. She is the icon of a generation. Her message of freedom, passion for art, self-consciousness and equality is the same our Valentino community stands for. I am so proud for having her in.” Pierpaolo Piccioli

Voce Viva advertising campaign will be revealed in September 2020, in conjunction with the worldwide release of the new perfume.

Model Sam Harris dives into new role as Biologi's ambassador

Biologi, the brand renowned for 100% active Clean Cosmeceuticals, has announced that Australian model Samantha Harris has signed on to become the brand’s global ambassador. To celebrate the multi-faceted, inspiring and strong woman that Samantha Harris is, her first skincare campaign launches, in line with Biologi’s new product launch – Bc Refresh Cleanser.

Biologi have had the Aussie model in their sights since the brand’s conception back in 2017, with the founders believing Samantha epitomises everything the brand represents. With her radiant complexion and empowering personality, Biologi knew Samantha would be the perfect fit.

“We’ve been patiently waiting for the opportunity to work with Samantha for a really long time now, having always loved the way her inner beauty reflects her outer beauty. She is a woman who truly understands our brand and the difference we want to make, all whilst exemplifying what modern beauty means in her own unique way. Samantha is a role model in every sense of the word because she inspires confidence in women through encouraging them to be comfortable in their own skin. She has a strong, global presence that relates to every woman, yet has a down to earth personality that is representative of the quintessential Aussie girl. We are so proud to call Samantha our new ambassador, explains Biologi’s Managing Director Lucy Macdougald.

Samantha, who was introduced to Biologi organically through social media, has been using the brand’s products for months and notes, “Biologi is a brand that I personally use on my own skin, so working with them was a natural choice in that regard, however as a brand they are so much more than just skincare. They are one of the only brands in the world that offer plant to bottle skincare, with a focus on using single Australian natives that are sourced locally, ethically and sustainably. As a brand they’re passionate about educating their consumers on everything from production processes through to how ingredients are made, but most importantly, they focus on empowering their customers to feel good in their own skin.”

Most renowned for her modelling, Samantha catapulted onto the scene when she was just 11 years old, having won the “Girlfriend Covergirl” competition. Before long, her image graced the pages of Australia’s top publications, including the cover of Australian Vogue at the age of 18. Samantha has featured prominently during Australian Fashion Week and as the face of some of Australia’s most notable brands, and most recently made headlines thanks to her philanthropic work with World Vision. Samantha is currently partnered with the charity as their first female First Nations Goodwill Ambassador.

Since first using the products, Samantha has joined the thousands of women world-wide who have experienced the phenomenal effects Biologi has on the skin. As a brand they are going from strength to strength, most recently launching the world’s first 100% natural cleanser, Bc Refresh Cleanser.

L'Oreal Paris x Karl Lagerfeld - 2 names collaborate in beauty collection

L’Oréal Paris and KARL LAGERFELD have announced their exclusive collaboration to introduce a makeup collection. 

Initiated by the late designer, the collection will channel KARL LAGERFELD’s iconic rock-chic style, fused with a sense of Parisian elegance that is both classic and effortless. 

To celebrate both his vision of beauty and his creative legacy, the KARL LAGERFELD X L’Oréal Paris collection will be revealed worldwide on September 20, 2019. The global release will take place a week later during Paris Fashion Week on September 27. 

“This line of makeup truly reflects the KARL LAGERFELD brand universe and what Karl loved in makeup — he often used eyeshadows as colors in his sketches,” said Caroline Lebar, Head of Image and Communication at Maison KARL LAGERFELD. “L’Oréal Paris has an inclusive message of beauty for all. Karl liked it when a collaboration resonated with his brand and would make a real impact to many people.”

Connected by their Parisian heritage, both KARL LAGERFELD and L’Oréal Paris share a pioneering spirit and commitment to celebrating feminine power, with a relentless quest to create the unexpected. The KARL LAGERFELD X L’Oréal Paris products have been created with L’Oréal’s scientific dedication and color expertise. The collection will be complemented by a striking campaign inspired by Karl Lagerfeld’s most iconic quotes and instantly recognizable codes.

“For L’Oréal Paris, all of our fashion designer collaborations are an honor, but this one is particularly meaningful,” said Delphine Viguier, L’Oréal Paris Global Brand President. “While Karl upturned the hierarchy of the landscape to democratize fashion, L’Oréal Paris is committed to making beauty according to women’s own rules and desires. We look forward to sharing with the world the makeup born from this creative connection: KARL LAGERFELD’s rock chic and L’Oréal Paris’ empowered vision of beauty.”

“For the House of KARL LAGERFELD, it is an exciting moment to bring these two Parisian fashion icons together in one compelling collaboration, and bring it to life in such a cool way — and Karl’s way,” said Pier Paolo Righi, CEO of KARL LAGERFELD.

Karl Lagerfeld, who passed away in February, was one of fashion’s most influential and prolific creators for more than half a century. Following nobody’s rules, he boldly stepped where no designers had before, turning his own image into a style itself. The KARL LAGERFELD X L’Oréal Paris makeup collection will be revealed worldwide on September 20, 2019.
