With a bold call for revolution, Deb Henretta, group president of global beauty care at Procter & Gamble Co., kicked off the 2013 Beauty Summit.
Henretta, who has made transformational changes to the structure of P&G Beauty during year one of her tenure, took as her topic digital innovation, and she didn’t mince words when it came to her assessment of beauty’s progress. “Leadership in the beauty industry evangelizes a digital figure, yet still under invests. The music does not match the words,” she declared, quoting from a conversation she had with digital guru Scott Galloway. “Are we really embracing digital as a transformational technology or do we hold too tightly to traditions?”
“I see things on the hanger and I’m, like, ‘I never knew that color worked on me.’ It’s things you necessarily wouldn’t choose to wear, but once you put them on, you see why Janie is who Janie is." — Lily Collins on working with former "Mad Men" costume designer, Janie Bryant on creating looks for her role as Celia Brady's in Amazon series, "The Last Tycoon." 📸@jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
