Celebrating 80 Years of Lancome
The French beauty brand marked the occasion in Sydney on Bastille Day
French beauty brand Lancôme celebrated its 80th birthday in Sydney on Bastille Day at a rose-bedecked Langham hotel. Roses are the symbol of the brand and from the hotel's foyer to its dining room, where a special menu including rose-inspired desserts designed by Donna Hay was served, they set the scene beautifully.
A who's who of the Australian beauty and media world dined at tables with more 1000 roses and listened to reality television songstress Jessica Mauboy, surrounded by art work by illustrator Kerrie Hess.
L'Oreal's glamorous communications director Christine Burke was just off the plane from Paris where the brand had earlier celebrated with its international spokesmodels. She continued the rosy theme in a striking Toni Maticevski outfit (pictured above).
Lancome's La Vie est Belle fragrance has recently become the No. 1 selling fragrance in France, guests were told, meaning it has edged ahead of Dior and Chanel. Life is indeed beautiful for the heritage brand with a rosy future which includes the launch in New Zealand next month of a trend-setting cushion foundation.Share this:
