Eva Chen to Replace Brandon Holley as Lucky’s Editor-in-Chief
Yesterday, Conde Nast’s Chief Executive Officer, Charles Townsend, announced that Lucky magazine has a new editor-in-chief: Eva Chen. In April, Chen was hired by Anna Wintour as a consult of various projects in an effort to revive the magazine, although exactly what those projects were is unclear. Chen worked as a fashion assistant at Lucky early in her career, before becoming beauty editor at Teen Vogue. She is also well known for her digital and social media expertise, which Wintour believes will help restore and modernize Lucky. Chen’s first issue of Lucky in her new role is the September issue. After being editor-in-chief of the magazine since September 2010, Brandon Holley’s next move is uncertain.
Chanel Exhibit Opening in Beijing, Shanghai
Tuesday, June 18 and Thursday, June 20 mark the next stops for Chanel’s “Little Black Jacket” exhibit, a showcase of celebrity portraits taken by Karl Lagerfeld and styled by Carine Roitfeld. For the opening Tuesday, Lagerfeld added 21 new portraits of Chinese celebrities donning the iconic jacket. Beijing and Shanghai are the 13th and 14th global stops on the show’s itinerary; with every new location, it changes in scope and design. The exhibit is a way for the brand to convey its creativity to new, expanding markets. So, it’s no surprise that it’s stopping in China, one of Chanel’s most important markets. Many fashion houses have thrived overseas as accessories brands – Chanel wants to expand by proving they are a luxury fashion brand. Due to the Beijing show’s opening party, which drew about 1,000 people, it seems like expanding won’t be hard to do.
Charlotte Tilbury Launches Pop-Up Beauty Event in Selfridges
Charlotte Tilbury, a British make-up artist, is determined to bring make-up to a broader audience. Her pop-up event, Rock ‘n’ Kohl, launched Monday night at Selfridges. The event also featured fine art – numerous images of Kate Moss shot by Chris Levine using lenticular technology, and a 3D light installation in the center that makes it look like Moss’s eyes are following the viewer. The pop-up will run until June 23, offering makeovers and make-up tutorials. Tilbury’s friends, including model Cara Delevingne, will make guest appearances and talk about life behind the scenes at fashion shows. Guests at the pop-up event will also receive Charlotte’s Magic Cream, a hand-blended cream Tilbury has been making for the past 20 years. She plans on launching her own beauty brand later this year.
