Olay aims to help women put their best face forward in the New Year.
Early next week, Procter & Gamble’s $2 billion skin-care line will launch a marketing campaign that cuts across all its subbrands called “Your Best Beautiful.”
“The campaign is about women not settling and being their best beautiful,” said Leigh Radford, vice president of global skin care at P&G. “When women feel beautiful, they stand taller and embrace life. There’s a skip in their step.”
Radford, who described the effort as “multilayered and unapologetic,” said the message will be communicated through affirmations, or first-person promises. “It brings a woman’s voice forward.”
It will be articulated across each of the subbrands — from Fresh Effects, a line tailored for young women, to Regenerist, an antiaging range.
The digital effort will launch on Monday, via a video on Olay’s social media channels. Radford said consumers will be able to share their best beautiful moments on Olay’s social media outlets. The digital campaign will be followed by TV, which will premiere during the Grammy Awards on Jan. 26, and print ads featuring the new Regenerist Luminous collection in February books.
The campaign follows past efforts such as “Love the Skin You’re In” and, most recently, “Challenge What’s Possible.”

“It was a very surreal feeling. It wasn’t like we were in the studio together coming up with it — it’s more like he discovered it and loved it. I didn’t let myself get my hopes up, but then it happened it was very exciting,” said singer-songwriter @nombe on discovering that @pharrell would be using his song, “Cant Catch Me” on his HBO documentary series “Outpost.” The German-born singer — named Noah MacBeth — talked to WWD about feminism, using art as a platform for political expression and personal style.

“It’s a hard industry to keep motivated, as well, so finding different subjects and people is what makes it worth it – when you’re like, oh, I’ve met great people, I feel like I’ve done something good, and I feel proud of having done this,” said French actress Stacy Martin on being grateful for the variety of roles she’s take on.
