On April 17, Jean-Victor Meyers was ratified by L’Oréal shareholders as the newest board member of the beauty giant at its annual meeting in Paris, succeeding his grandmother, Liliane Bettencourt, who exited the board in February. The ascension made Meyers the youngest director of any company on the French CAC 40 blue-chip index.
In some ways, however, tending to those new high-profile duties are a side note to Meyers’ full-time job as president of Exemplaire, the men’s knitwear company he established in February with his close friend Louis Leboiteux. The two 26-year-olds, who met five years ago through common friends, are out to create a label for consumers much like themselves: affluent, young and interested in luxury garments with a contemporary fit.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
