Hot on the heels of CEW’s 2024 Visionary Awards last week, which drew over 200 guests to Santa Monica, California to honor five exceptional female entrepreneurs, all eyes will be on the red carpet in Cannes today. The Dior Suite at the Majestic Hotel will open its doors to pamper and prep stars for the 77th Cannes Film Festival. Among the offerings will be facials using Dior Prestige skin care and the new Dior Lucibel mask which uses red LED light. Dyson will make its debut at the event, providing tech for hair styling teams. 

In New York, meanwhile, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCR), founded by Evelyn Lauder 30 years ago, will host its annual Hot Pink Party this evening, in which it will honor William P. Lauder, grandson of Estée Lauder and son of Leonard A. Lauder, with the Evelyn H. Lauder Spirit of Philanthropy award.

In skin care news, CEW reports on how brand executives feel about Gen Alpha using their products. “This trend where tweens are buying and using advanced skin care is very concerning,” notes Dr. Heather Woolery-Lloyd, a Miami dermatologist. “Ingredients like retinol and alpha hydroxy acids are not appropriate for young skin and can cause significant irritation in this age group.” 

Speaking of skin care, GNTL, the sustainable and minimalist skin care brand founded by Sydney Drake, a former innovator at e.l.f. Cosmetics, is launching online at Credo Beauty, as well as in its stores. And in fragrance, Belarus-born couture designer Olga Sorokin tells CEW how she came to create five, personality-driven scents with dsm-firmenich for the fashion brand Masion IRFĒ.
