A limited-edition Farrah Fawcett lipstick launches Monday exclusively at Barneys New York on the ninth anniversary of her death. Farrah by Nude Envie will retail for $38 with proceeds benefiting the Farrah Fawcett Foundation for cancer research and prevention. Fawcett died from cancer at the age of 62.
In addition to availability in select Barneys’ stores, the rosy shade of nude pink will be sold on barneys.com and Nudenvie.com. The project was conceived by Barneys New York resident makeup artist, Patrick Foley. Based in Beverly Hills, Foley was a close personal friend of Fawcett’s and envisioned the lipstick as a way to honor and mark the anniversary of her death. Foley approached Nude Envie founder and creative director Isabel Madison to create the “Farrah” pink color the actress favored. “Farrah had that perfect California girl look — she liked a baby pink with a softness to it. This color flatters the teeth and skin and is on-trend with what is happening in cosmetics,” Foley said. “Farrah would blend colors together to get this exact look. She was often all natural with no make up but never left the house without her lipstick.”

Stella McCartney has been designing wedding looks 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
