PERFUME PARTIES: At a cocktail party held at the Ritz-Carlton in Cannes, during the recent TFWA trade show, Lalique Group revealed that it had changed the name of its fragrance and cosmetics division from Art & Fragrance to Lalique Beauty, meant to capitalize on the Lalique brand.
That division includes the fragrance labels Jaguar, Grès, Bentley, Samouraï and Alain Delon; Ultrasun sun care, and Lalique Beauty Services (formerly Art & Fragrance Services), specializing in bottling and logistics, and based in France.
Cosmetics entrepreneur Charlotte Tilbury came face to face with one of her inspirations when Queen Elizabeth handed her an MBE, or Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, at Buckingham Palace earlier today. #wwdbeauty
Stella McCartney has been designing wedding looks for years for customers, friends, family — and herself for years.
And now, leveraging the success of the dress she designed for the Duchess of Sussex’s wedding reception in May, McCartney is launching, Made with Love, a bridal line including eight dresses and an ivory tuxedo, reports @natalietheodosi . “I feel very protective over the bride, because I know what it was like when I got married, and for me to do my own wedding dress. There are moments that are so personal and private, so emotional and loaded with many different issues,” McCartney told WWD in an interview in June. “I think we are really blessed to have the emotional trust with a woman. She’ll come in and feel the love that we put into everything. What she chooses can be conventional or unconventional. It’s a personal experience.” #wwdnews
