CHINA CLIPS THE WINGS OF SEVERAL “ANGELS”

Thursday, November 16th, 2017
Singer Katy Perry and model Gigi Hadid will not be by flying among the angels at Victoria’s Secret’s widely-anticipated Shanghai runway show this month.  Sharing her regrets on Twitter (below), Hadid wished her Victoria’s Secret family well, but did not acknowledge the “Buddha incident” which allegedly led to her being banned by Chinese officials.
According to Page Six, Perry’s denial stems from a controversial 2015 performance in Taipei, where she sported a sunflower-adorned costume; the sunflower is regarded as an anti-government symbol in China.  Additionally, models Adriana Lima, Irina Shripova, Julia Belyakova, and Kate Grigorieva have not yet been granted visas to enter the country.

Academy Award-nominated actress, Felicity Jones, has be named the global brand face for luxury skincare company Clé de Peau.  The English actress, known internationally for her starring role in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, replaces Amanda Seyfried, as the Shiseido-owned beauty brand’s spokesperson.  Her announcement comes as Clé de Peau undergoes a relaunch to build global awareness outside of its native Japan.

Yukari Suzuki, Brand Director of Clé de Peau Beauté says, “A crucial element of Clé de Peau Beauté is to help customers feel that our brand belongs in their lives. Felicity is aspirational, yet highly relatable, which makes her the ideal face of Clé de Peau Beauté. She embodies the brand’s DNA: intelligent, uncompromising and exquisite. Her passion and incredible dedication to her craft have allowed her to make an impact on the world and those around her.”  The brand has chosen to pursue a spokesperson who embodies its core values (rather than the number of its social media followers she has).  Jones, in fact, has not posted on Twitter since 2011, Instagram since 2015, and Facebook since January of 2017.

“It’s important to me that my values align with any brand I’m affiliated with,” says Jones. “Clé de Peau Beauté made it clear that they approached me because of my principles and dedication. I’m so proud of the Spring/Summer 2018 campaign and cannot wait to unveil it to the world.”
