As modeling careers go, reality TV star-turned-runway star Kendall Jenner is on the fast track to success--she was a major hit at Fashion Month back in September, works the red carpet like nobody's business, and now the California native has landed a deal as the face of beauty giant Estée Lauder. Jenner, who recently celebrated her nineteenth birthday, actually received the good news while backstage at the Sonia Rykiel show at Paris Fashion Week on September 29, and has managed to keep mum about it until now. Taking to Instagram, Jenner posted, "I am super excited to announce that I am the new face of @esteelauder!! I still can't believe it myself!" As the new global face of Estée Lauder, Jenner follows in the footsteps of such industry heavyhitters like Joan Smalls, Carolyn Murphy, and Liu Wen. Congrats to Kendall--we can't wait to see the glamorous campaigns!
Just a year after launching its fragrance, Nirvana, Elizabeth and James is taking the next step, albeit a small one, in the beauty world with the debut of its first color cosmetic: the Elizabeth and James Nirvana Nude Lipgloss. The limited edition gloss is part of the brand's holiday gift set at Sephora, which includes a rollerball of either of the Nirvana fragrances (Black Nirvana, a warm and faintly sweet scent, or White Nirvana, a rich floral). Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, the twins behind the label have no plans to launch and entire makeup line--the Elizabeth and James Nirvana Nude Lipgloss will only be sold during this holiday season--so you'd better get to Sephora quick and scoop it up. At $29 for each gift set it's kind of a steal; we may just have to pick up both fragrances (hooray for double lip the gloss!).
