Last night, General Manager of Lancôme Australia, Ed Holmes, hosted an evening of beauty and elegance at The Langham Sydney, to celebrate the 80th Anniversary of the brand, founded by entrepreneur Armand Petitjean in 1935. The Langham Sydney played home to, what can only be described as, an evening to remember.

The very essence of Lancôme was captured on the evening, through an inspired voyage of the senses. As guests sipped on Cuvée Rosé by Laurent Perrier, they were treated to the beautifully crafted watercolour works of internationally acclaimed fashion illustrator, Kerrie Hess, to the olfactory delights of flawlessly arranged and perfectly formed roses by Saskia Havekes of Grandiflora, the quintessence of Lancôme. Working alongside The Langham Sydney’s Executive Chef, Thomas Heinrich and Head Patissiere, Chef Miguel Jocson, Australia’s leading food editor, Donna Hay created an exquisitely French-inspired culinary experience. Lastly, to fill the heads and hearts of our 170 VIP and media guests was a private performance by one of Australia’s most celebrated performing artists of the 21st century, Jessica Mauboy. This Australian icon was simply breath-taking. Each brought a unique element to form a much larger vision of beauty and sophistication.

Through these phenomenal women – and globally the brand’s ambassadresses, Julia Roberts, Penélope Cruz, Kate Winslet, Lupita Nyong’o, Lily Collins, Alma Jodorowsky and Daria Werbowy – Lancôme celebrates 80 years young through the women who embody the qualities of elegance, beauty and innovation so effortlessly.

We would also like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to our partner, The Langham Sydney. This most beautiful boutique hotel is befitting of the most celebratory and elegant of moments in a brand’s history.

The evening was perfectly supported by our sponsors, Laurent Perrier, for the truly elegant, French touch of Cuvée Rosé, and to our water sponsor, Santa Vittoria, for keeping our guests chic and hydrated.
