NEW YORK — In years past, Cosmetic Executive Women held award luncheons honoring an executive for her career achievement. This year, the spotlight fell on a dozen women.
Carlotta Jacobson, president of CEW, noted that this year many women were honored, citing that "this was an opportunity for the organization to look at achievement at all levels."
Leading off the parade of honorees at last Friday’s luncheon ceremony at the Waldorf-Astoria was Jeanette Wagner, vice chairman of the Estée Lauder Cos., who was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award. The award was created in 1989 for Estée Lauder, until now, its only recipient.
An award for Special Recognition was presented to Annette Green, president of the Fragrance Foundation, who announced her retirement earlier this year.
Other 2002 honorees were: Jennifer Balbier, senior vice president of corporate product innovation for Estée Lauder Cos.; Tova Borgnine, founder of Tova Beverly Hills; Anne Carullo, senior vice president of global product innovation at Lauder; Gail Federici, president of John Frieda Professional Hair Care Inc.; Ann Gottlieb, president of Ann Gottlieb Associates; Jeanine Lobell, president of Stila; Camille McDonald, president and ceo of American Designer Fragrances, Parfums Givenchy and Guerlain; Andrea Robinson, president worldwide of Ralph Lauren Fragrances; Jill Scalamandre, general manager of Prada Beauty; Kathleen Walas, group vice president of public relations and corporate affairs, Avon Products Inc. and president of The Avon Foundation.

For @monsemaison’s pre-fall 2018 collection, Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim honed in on the brand’s many signatures — men’s wear, which was tweaked and feminized through deconstruction, proportion play and lots of bare shoulders. See the rest of the photos on WWD.com #wwdfashion (📷: George Chinese)

@janellemonae’s “What’s Your Frequency?” room in @refinery29's #29Rooms made its debut this week at the opening of the Los Angeles art exhibit. “It’s about the ongoing conversation around mass surveillance, the weaponization of technology and cultural uniformity. My space was created so that we can come together and talk about the complexities of our humanity,” said Monáe. #wwdeye (📷: @bucknerphoto)
@pantone announced their Color of the Year 2018: Ultra Violet. Nearly 20 months after the musician Prince’s death, fashion is having a purple moment. Varying shades of purple appeared on spring or fall runways, from @christopherkane to @calvinklein. @gucci’s Alessandro Michele bathed his fall runway in ultra violet-colored light at one point. Pantone 18-3838 is meant to “push the boundaries of what inspires us to look upward and outward to the future.” #wwdnews #wwdfashion (📷: @kukukuba)
