PARIS – There was nothing dull last year about the complexion of the beauty industry, which maintained growth despite contrasting trends in geographic markets and product categories.
That was among the main takeaways from the financial analysts’ meeting hosted by Jean-Paul Agon, L’Oréal chairman and chief executive officer, on Friday at the company’s headquarters in the Paris suburb of Clichy. It was held the morning after the maker of Lancôme lipsticks and Vichy skin care published its results for 2017.
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
