LONDON — Brexit fears and a slow-growing economy have done little to dampen the British consumers’ love of beauty products. In fact, those macro issues are very likely stoking passion for brow jobs, Botox, hair extensions and conditioning masks, not to mention premium color cosmetics and online beauty purchases.
In 2017, U.K. consumers spent 25.1 billion pounds on beauty products and services, according to a new report by Mintel Group and Cosmetic Executive Women, and that figure is set to rise by around 10 percent to 26.9 billion pounds by 2022.
The first retrospective of Dior in the U.S. has landed at the Denver Art Museum — and though the exhibition is a continuation of the 70th-anniversary display that bowed in Paris in 2017, “Christian Dior, Couturier du Rêve,” the DAM show offers an entirely new look at the legacy of the house, and its relationship to the world, writes @leighen .

Norwegian musician Anna of the North (a.k.a. Anna Lotterud ) has had a rapid rise in the U.S., thanks to her song “Lovers” which was included in this summer’s Netflix hit “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.” Next up, a show at Terminal 5. “I’ve never actually done promo or anything in the U.S. before so it’ll be interesting to see,” she tells @leighen . “Because of the Internet I’ve always had American listeners but never been here [playing music].” 📸: @jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
