Howard Suslow, who helped launch and develop the beauty business within WWD and W, died Jan. 14 at his home in West Palm Beach, Fla. He was 89 years old.
Suslow’s career in beauty and fragrance marketing began at Revlon. He joined WWD’s then owner Fairchild Publications in 1958. During his tenure, he elevated the presence of beauty advertising in WWD’s pages and oversaw the development of the mass market segment in 1992. He was promoted to vice president, beauty sales and marketing for Fairchild in 1994. Suslow retired from his role in 1996. Those who worked with Suslow called him “one of a kind,” with access to the key players in the budding beauty business. He was involved with the Fragrance Foundation and numerous industry charities.

“I’ve been an actress since I was like 10 or 12, and then I went to drama school. I have a technique, and I have a process that I bring to every role. And I can talk about it, but that kind of makes it less magic, and also when I talk about it, it makes me feel like I’m full of myself,” ‘Crazy Rich Asians Star’ Constance Wu tells @leighen .(📸: @emmanmontalvan: styled by @micaelaerlanger ) #wwdeye #crazyrichasians #constancewu
As Zachary Quinto’s impactful run as Harold in “The Boys in the Band” comes to a close this weekend, he tells @leighen , "People have been really connected to the themes and the ideas in the show...It’s also really reflected back to audiences how similar our experiences are today. And I think it also, in a way, transcends gay identity as well.” #wwdeye #zacharyquinto (📸 @jgreenery )
