Naomi Campbell’s New Show

It had to happen sooner or later. The statuesque model with the infamous temper on a television reality show contest judging others. Naomi Campbell will be joining a new show on the Oxygen network known as “The Face”. Campbell will be one of the three mentors on the upcoming series which will see models compete to become the spokeswoman for a national brand.

Rod Aissa, senior vice-president of original programming and development for the channel, said about the show, “The Face … delivers all the elements our audience craves: fashion, beauty and drama.”

Benefit Cosmetics, the Movie?

Twin sisters Jean and Jane Ford, who founded Benefit Cosmetics, are about to hit the big screen … and the internet. The film Glamouriety, which chronicles the sisters’ journey from small town girls to runway models to beauty legends, premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and will play a few more cities before screening on Benefit’s website. The movie combines “animation, skits, and original musical numbers” and has been compared to a Sonny and Cher variety show.

Lanvin to Launch Couture Scent

Four years after the launch of the Jeanne Lanvin women’s fragrance comes a Couture version, meant to lure a slightly more mature consumer. “Jeanne Couture is more womanly,” explained Delphine Pommier, marketing director for Lanvin, Jimmy Choo and Van Cleef & Arpels, at fragrance licensee Inter Parfums SA. “The target is a little less young than for Jeanne.”

Both fragrances have a fruity aspect, sharing a raspberry note, as well as the same bottle shape. However, Jeanne Lanvin has more red fruit and musky characteristics than Couture’s floral woody juice. The new scent is to be introduced starting in May in Northern Europe. The U.S. is not slated at present to get the fragrance. in Trouble?

Why else would everyone be leaving? Keith Pollock,‘s editorial director, is leaving to become editor in chief of Du Jour–a new digital and print editorial publication launching in collaboration with Gilt Groupe. Also,’s market editor, Sydney Wasserman, and art director Stephanie Jones. And that’s not it! Britt Aboutaleb,’s fashion news editor, plans on leaving NYC to head to CA for Who What Wear’s beauty director.

No word yet on who could be replacing all of these high directing officials but no doubt there is about to be a scramble.
