With the goal of getting consumers to think happy thoughts, bareMinerals will be joining forces with interior designer Jonathan Adler on a limited-edition collection that merges cosmetics with home decor. The Happiness by Design themed set, available in February, features an oversize version of the brand’s Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 and Handy Buki Brush housed in a decorative keepsake box.
“[It’s] intended to evoke the promise that both brands distinctly and consistently make to their customers: that every single product we create should make your life better, easier, cooler, way more interesting, way more entertaining…or in one word, happier,” said Bare Escentuals founder Leslie Blodgett. Redesigned product packaging and the coordinating memento bin will showcase Adler’s signature chevron pattern and use of vivid colors which, “[have] mood enhancing benefits,” said Blodgett. Extending its happiness theme, the kit’s Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15, which is 18 grams versus eight, is meant to be used “more luxuriously, on your décolleté,” according to Blodgett. The preservative free foundation, available in five shades — fairly light, light, medium, medium beige and medium tan — boasts adjustable sheer to full coverage when applied with the goat haired Handy Buki Brush.

“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
