Gucci launch its cosmetics line in NYC
Solange Knowles, Poppy Delevingne, Mira Duma and more
A heritage fashion house as big as Gucci launching a cosmetics line for the first time is a big deal, and this deal took Frida and co 4 years to develop. With its new beauty ambassador (and longterm collaborator) in tow – Charlotte Casiraghi – Gucci celebrated its furore into the world of beauty with a stellar party.
In the presence of Gucci President and CEO Patrizio di Marco, the Carlyle hotel in New York played host to the swanky affair, which was attended by Buro 24/7's Mira Duma, Solange Knowles, Rachel Zoe, Poppy Delevingne, Anja Rubrik, Lily Donaldson and many others.
"For me, beauty and fashion are always connected. One does not exist without the other. Makeup is always a key element for the Gucci shows, it helps to convey the essence of the nature of women in the style of Gucci," - said Frida to the assembled guests, "Eyes, lips, leather - all join together to help to create the perfect image, and cosmetics are to some extent "accessories."
During the celebrations, guests had the opportunity to exclusively see what Gucci cosmetics will look like. The line up includes products for lips called Gucci Lip, for the eyes - Gucci Eye, and to create an even skin tone - Gucci Face, nail polish also features via Gucci Nail's and there are several products to prepare the skin.
