LONDON — Model Barbara Palvin is the latest woman to be named as an ambassador for L’Oréal Paris.
Palvin, an 18-year-old who hails from Budapest, has walked the runway for labels including Louis Vuitton, Prada, Miu Miu and Chanel, and has appeared on the cover of titles including French Elle, Russian Vogue, and Korean Harper’s Bazaar. She’s also appeared in ads for Emporio Armani and Calvin Klein’s Forbidden Euphoria fragrance.
Cyril Chapuy, global brand president of L’Oréal Paris, said that he was struck by Palvin’s “strong character and self-assurance,” when he first met her on the sidelines of a Paris fashion show. “[Palvin] is a very promising supermodel with a fascinating personality, [a] fresh and elegant beauty with a great sense of humor and astonishing maturity,” said Chapuy. “I think she has this incredible potential to become a household name.”
Palvin will make her debut as the face of Rouge Caresse, a new L’Oréal Paris lipstick aimed at twentysomething women, formulated to give a light veil of color to lips. She will appear in both print and television ads for the product, which will run globally from February. Chapuy also noted that Palvin will be the face of a “variety” of L’Oréal Paris products in the brand’s makeup, styling and hair care categories.
Palvin said of her appointment: “I’m very excited about the prospect of joining the L’Oréal Paris family alongside huge, iconic celebrities such as Gwen Stefani and Claudia Schiffer. I have a very personal vision of beauty, which is very closely aligned with [L’Oréal Paris’] modern approach.
“What he has done at Vuitton is really exceptional,” said @gameofthrones’ actress Gwendoline Christie on @mrkimjones’ final show for @louisvuitton. “He has rebooted luxury in terms of making it commercial, viable and contemporary. And most importantly artistic. He has never compromised his artistic vision for the sake of commodity.” (📷: @zefashioninsider)

“And so spending so much time with a character who thinks like that, inevitability you try and analyze yourself and go back and think about your own demons and dark chapters that you had in your life,” says @thedanielbruhl of his role in TNT’s “The Alienist.” The show, set in the Gilded Age of New York, also stars Dakota Fanning and Luke Evans.

“My personal philosophy to beauty is paying attention to oneself. I love to be outdoors, lots of fresh air, trying to take care of yourself as best you can.

According to @laurentsai, former “Terrace House: Aloha State” cast member, she didn’t know she was auditioning for the Japanese version of “Real World.” “I was telling a couple of my friends and someone’s like, ‘That sounds a lot like Terrace House.’ I was like, ’No it can’t be.’” Turns out, it was. But Tsai isn’t just a reality star — she’s an illustrator who has worked with Starbucks Japan and most recently, she’s dipping her toes into the fashion world.
