BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Cosmetic Executive Women inaugurated the Women in Beauty Series on the West Coast last week with a clear message from Pamela Baxter that the recession has not — and will not — kill the luxury market.
“If you are a luxury brand, you have to stay focused. I don’t think you can go with the winds of the economy,” the president and chief executive officer of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton’s Perfume and Cosmetics Group and Christian Dior Inc.’s U.S. division told 225 people gathered at the Beverly Hilton. “At the end of the day, people do want to dream.”
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
