Estee Lauder name new Modern Muse spokesmodel as ballerina Misty Copeland

Estée Lauder today announced Misty Copeland, principal ballerina at American Ballet Theatre, as the new global spokesmodel for the brand’s Modern Muse fragrance.

Misty will front the new Modern Muse fragrance campaign across digital, TV, in-store and print, debuting August 2017.

“When Estée Lauder launched the Modern Muse fragrance in 2013, we embraced the idea of women as muses, living life on their own terms, achieving great things and inspiring everyone around them,” said Stephane de La Faverie, Global Brand President, Estée Lauder.

“Misty has challenged the status quo to achieve her dreams and inspired so many young women along the way. Misty will bring the fragrance concept to life through her unique story.”

“Misty is the perfect representation of today’s modern muse,” said Aerin Lauder, Style and Image Director, Estée Lauder.

“She is all about feminine strength, power, dedication and passion, and you see that in what she does every day, whether she is performing or inspiring the next generation of dancers. I think she is a wonderful role model and I am thrilled to welcome her to the Estée Lauder brand.”

“I am so honored to represent Estée Lauder Modern Muse,” said Misty Copeland.

“My two passions are dance and giving back, and I love passing on knowledge to the next generation. I also have a strong connection to the scents I wear when I perform. The Modern Muse campaign is the perfect way to see another side of my story.”

The Modern Muse campaign was produced by Estée Lauder’s in-house Creative team in collaboration with Spring Studios and director and photographer Pamela Hanson.

The campaign includes extensive storytelling around the theme, “What inspires you?” to personalize the Modern Muse concept to Misty, and engage women in conversation across digital and social platforms using the hashtag #BeAnInspiration.

Misty is featured in the campaign teaching and inspiring young ballerinas and talking about the importance of connecting with the next generation.

'Gabrielle Chanel' Party - What a Night!

CHANEL has unveiled its new fragrance GABRIELLE CHANEL during a private reception at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris.

The launch is the culmination of an exceptional year dedicated to the founder of the House, who, on the heels of the Gabrielle bag launch, is now being celebrated with a luminous and solar fragrance created by Olivier Polge in collaboration with the CHANEL Fragrance Creation and Development Laboratory.

A few short hours after the CHANEL 2017-2018 Fall-Winter Haute Couture Collection show, guests were introduced to the world of the GABRIELLE CHANEL fragrance through an immersive experience.

The launch was staged to reflect Gabrielle Chanel’s personality: choose your destination, take your own path, become the person you want to be and stay true to yourself.

Walls lined with faceted movable mirrors reflected images that multiplied and disappeared as guests moved through the space, and thus served as the antechamber of a maze peppered with Mademoiselle’s favorite quotes.

Like an anamorphosis, a giant mobile gave viewers the impression of diving into the heart of the golden-hued fragrance. Scented niches provided guests with the opportunity to smell the main ingredients of the fragrance (ylang-ylang, orange blossom, jasmine and Grasse tuberose).

A room plunged into darkness projected a hologram—an allegory of the bottle exploding into a bouquet of flowers. The scent of the new CHANEL fragrance wafting through the air only heightened the experience. The bottle was then revealed in a majestic play of shadow and light.

The journey came to an end with the exclusive showing of the new advertising film for the GABRIELLE CHANEL fragrance.

Ambassadors and friends of the House in attendance included Kristen Stewart, the face of GABRIELLE CHANEL, along with Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry, Cara Delevingne, Caroline de Maigret, Gaspard Ulliel, Alma Jodorowsky, Kaya Scodelario, Ines de la Fressange, Cécile Cassel, Alessandra Mastronardi, Blanca Li, Rossy di Palma, Zhou Xun, Liu Wen etc.

Guests were treated to a music performance by Pharrell Williams in the presence of Karl Lagerfeld and danced until the break of dawn.
