HARAM TO CAROL’S DAUGHTER: Lori Haram has been named general manager of Carol’s Daughter. She will work with founder Lisa Price and chief executive Steve Stoute to continue to grow the beauty brand.
Haram, most recently a consultant for Carol’s Daughter and MAC Cosmetics, began her beauty career as executive director of financial planning and analysis for Estée Lauder International in 1994. She was vice president of finance for Estée Lauder USA and Canada from 1995 to 1996 before working in the finance and strategic planning group at EMI Group’s Angel Records division. She returned to Lauder in 2000 as vice president of global finance and strategic planning for MAC Cosmetics, a role she held until 2006. She also served as Sean John Fragrances’ vice president of global finance from 2003 to 2006. JESEL PROMOTED: Guillaume Jesel has been named senior vice president of global marketing for MAC Cosmetics. Jesel, who previously was vice president of global marketing, will continue to report to John Demsey, group president of the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc.
“Guillaume Jesel is a global strategic thinker who is invaluable to MAC,” said Demsey. “His deep understanding of the brand and love of the MAC culture emanates in his work. I am confident that he will continue to contribute to the evolution of the MAC brand.”
In his new role, Jesel will continue to lead MAC’s global marketing efforts with five strategic areas of focus: product marketing, consumer marketing, new launch management, makeup artistry and artist research. His expanded responsibilities include overseeing the artist relations department, which Demsey noted “is central to MAC’s ties with the professional makeup artist community,” and the creation of an alternative media department.
Before joining MAC, Jesel served as vice president of global makeup marketing for the Estée Lauder brand where he served as a liaison with Tom Ford for Ford’s collaboration with the brand. SUNSCREEN STATS: Two-thirds of women in the U.S. use sunscreen but the use of such products varies by ethnicity, according to a skin care survey conducted by The NPD Group. While 69 percent of white women use sunscreen, 64 percent of Hispanic women and 45 percent of black women use the products, the firm stated. The majority of black women who use sunscreen, NPD noted, uses SPF 30 and above, and 40 percent of white and Hispanic women use sunscreen that is SPF 30 and above. “More and more women are recognizing that preventing sun damage is a first line of defense against aging,” said Karen Grant, NPD’s global industry analyst and vice president of beauty. “Since 2005, in-sun products have outsold self-tanners in the U.S. prestige market, and growth is being fueled primarily by higher protection products with SPF 30 and above.” The firm added that 60 percent of women use sunscreens that are SPF 15 and above.
ROYAL GROOMING: Prince Charles’ charms may not extend to fairy-tale good looks, nevertheless, the heir to the British throne has teamed up with The Organic Pharmacy to create a treatment line inspired by plants found in the garden at his country retreat. The five-unit collection, dubbed Highgrove in honor of the prince’s estate in Gloucestershire, comprises products tailored for gardeners, including a hand scrub and hand cream. Given the prince’s strident views on traditional farming methods, the line is organic, naturally. A king’s ransom is hardly required to snap up the products, which range in price from 7.50 pounds, or about $15, for a hand cream to 16.50 pounds, or about $33, for a hand scrub. The line, which bowed in June, is sold in The Organic Pharmacy stores, as well as Prince Charles’ boutiques in Highgrove and Tetbury. Profits from their sale go to the Prince’s Charities Foundation.
@kith is moving into children’s. The men’s and women’s streetwear brand has launched Kidset, a Kith kids line located in New York at 64 Bleecker Street.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.

“Azzedine has been one of the biggest influences in my life. He has always been such a strong, loving, fatherly figure to me. I call him Papa. His designs are indescribably unique, they are pieces of art. He knew how to make the female form look its loveliest. I have so many memories of him; my favorite might be during my first show with him in Paris. He liked me and he wanted to help me get more work. He called all his friends at Kenzo and Comme des Garcons, and asked them to book me. They said, ‘But she can’t walk!’ And he said, ‘but she has such a great ass!' His friendship and support has been the great privilege of my career. I can't imagine life without him. Repose en paix mon Papa.” - @stephanieseymour tells @wwd. #wwdfashion (📷: @steveeichner) #alaia #azzedinealaia
Azzedine Alaïa, flanked by two of his closest friends, models Stephanie Seymour and Naomi Campbell.
He designed Seymour’s dress for her 1995 wedding to Peter Brant, and treated Campbell (who famously called him Papa), like a daughter. For more on the legendary designer, tap the link in bio. #wwdfashion #alaia #azzedinealaia
