Anastasia Beverly Hills’ investment from private equity firm TPG may be the last big makeup deal the beauty world sees for a while.
The transaction, which sources say values the business at $3 billion, follows several other large deals in the makeup space, including L’Oréal’s acquisition of IT Cosmetics for $1.2 billion and the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc. purchase of Too Faced for $1.45 billion. According to experts, Anastasia will likely be the last of this large-scale makeup M&A era.
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
