PARIS - Thirteen prestige beauty brands and France's three leading selective perfumery retailers have been fined a combined 46.2 million euros, or $55.1 million at current exchange, by the country's competition watchdog for fixing retail prices between 1997 and 2000.
The fines were handed out to beauty brands owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, L'Oréal and Chanel, and to retailers Marionnaud Parfumeries, Sephora and Nocibe.
@moncler unveiled its latest project, #MonclerGenius, yesterday at Milan Fashion Week. The Italian outwear maker gave show-goers a preview of the monthly collections – which were created by eight designers and creative talents including Pierpaolo Piccioli, Simone Rocha, Craig Green and more – that will start rolling out in the summer.
In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
