NEW YORK, Jan. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- L'Oreal Professionnel is proud to announce that Eva Green - Bond girl in Casino Royale, heroin of the new hit TV series Penny Dreadful and star of the next film by Tim Burton, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, which will be released in 2016 - is the new international spokesperson for L'Oreal Professionnel.

Born in Paris on July 5, 1980, Eva Green possesses a feminine and magnetic beauty. She is one of the most talented international actresses of her generation. She also has a great awareness of fashion and beauty trends. Eva is particularly renowned for her translucent complexion, blue eyes and her signature brunette hair, which she often transforms for films and red carpet appearances. Whether wearing a loose, wavy style or a sophisticated and glamorous chignon, Eva Green always channels powerful femininity.

Eva takes pride in her hair and has built a relationship of trust with her hairdresser. "As an actress, hair is so important. You need a very good relationship with your hairdresser and together we create the hairstyles. My hairdresser uses, of course, the leader of hair products, L'Oreal Professionnel. I am very glad to be on board on this new adventure," she says.

At 34, Eva Green has more than 18 films and TV series to her name. She has often played enigmatic heroines in fantastic and surreal worlds. She chooses her roles carefully and has worked on superb films as well as wonderful collaborations with renowned filmmakers.

Eva began her film career in 2003. She was offered her first screen role by Bertolucci in his film The Dreamers. She went on to star alongside Romain Duris in Arsene Lupin in 2004 before heading to Hollywood in 2005. She launched her international career after just a few months thanks to Ridley Scott who cast her as his leading lady, Sybille, in Kingdom of Heaven.

In 2006, she joined the ranks of the famous and beautiful Bond girls, landing the role of Vesper Lynd alongside Daniel Craig in Casino Royale. She continued to appeal to audiences in large-scale productions like Dark Shadows alongside Johnny Depp and Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For as well as independent films like Perfect Sense and White Bird.

In 2015, she will begin shooting Tim Burton's new film Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children while also continuing to appear in the hit American TV series Penny Dreadful, in which she plays the title role alongside Josh Hartnett.

"We have chosen Eva Green because she perfectly embodies our values: She is extremely sensitive to fashion trends and counts on the expertise of hairdressers, both on and off screen. Her beauty, modernity & personal appeal captivate. I am convinced that Eva Green will be an amazing advantage for L'Oreal Professionnel," says Anne-Laure Lecerf, International Managing Director at L'Oreal Professionnel.

Ximon Lee: First U.S. And Menswear Designer To Win The H&M Design Award



NEW YORK, Jan. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The winner of the fourth annual H&M Design Award 2015 is Ximon Lee, a 24-year-old graduate from Parsons School of Design in New York, whom was chosen by prominent jury members like Lily Allen and Tommy Ton. Ximon is the first U.S. and menswear designer to receive the prestigious award, which was presented today along with his winning collection at a fashion show during Fashion Week Stockholm. In addition to the show, Ximon has won €50,000 and the opportunity to develop pieces from his collection to be sold at selected H&M stores and online at hm.com later this fall.


"Ximon's collection captivated the jury with its contemporary yet poetic mood, its strong feeling for fabric and an incredible attention to detail," says Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M's Head of Design, New Development.

"I think he is a highly accomplished designer. He had everything; his research was beautiful, the fabric development was really skillful and his design was good," says Luella Bartley, Design Director of Marc by Marc Jacobs and member of the jury.

Ximon, originally from Hong Kong but now based in New York City, was selected by a world-renowned jury in London. His innovative collection creates layers of organic and synthetic textures, including materials such as plastic and cardboard, to build exaggerated forms that move outward from the body. These new silhouettes push menswear forward in the garments' cut and shape. Key inspiration stemmed from the documentary, Children of Leningradsky, and as a result Ximon traveled to Russia to create his personal mood boards for the collection.

This year's jury members included:

Lily Allen, Singer/Songwriter

Luella Bartley, Design Director of Marc by Marc Jacobs

Lucinda Chambers, Fashion Director of British Vogue

Paula Goldstein di Principe, Creative Director, H&M

Tommy Ton, Visual Journalist

Angelo Flaccavento, Freelance Fashion Critic

Justin O'Shea, Buying Director for MyTheresa.com

Ann-Sofie Johansson, Head of Design, New Development, H&M

Margareta van den Bosch, Creative Advisor, H&M

"It's very street, it's very art-inspired, it's very architectural, and it's very individual, but at the same time the collection is approachable because you can see the story and history behind everything that Ximon Lee does. There is a lot of promise in him. We all saw that and we felt unanimously that he was the front runner," says Tommy Ton.

"I was stunned when they announced I was the winner. The H&M Design Award means so much to me at the beginning of my career – I cannot imagine how I'd start my own label without it. My collection was designed as menswear but I'm excited to see it also worn by women," says Ximon Lee.

As a rapidly expanding brand, H&M offers endless possibilities. We are always looking for new talent to grow with the company and take on new challenges. For all available job positions please visit career.hm.com

The Sexiest Swim Show Of The Year, "THE VICTORIA'S SECRET SWIM SPECIAL" 2015


The Sexiest Swim Show Of The Year, "THE VICTORIA'S SECRET SWIM SPECIAL", Premieres Thursday, Feb. 26, On The CBS Television Network
A New Special Shot on Location in Puerto Rico Featuring Victoria's Secret Angels Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, Behati Prinsloo, Alessandra Ambrosio Among Others

Grammy Award-Winning Artists Maroon 5 and Juanes To Perform

NEW YORK, Jan. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- For the first time on network television, viewers will get a glimpse into Victoria's Secret's sexiest swim show of the year, THE VICTORIA'S SECRET SWIM SPECIAL, Thursday, Feb. 26 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network. This new special follows the Angels as they land in Puerto Rico to shoot the swimwear campaign. With exclusive access to the models as they tackle jungle treks, underwater shoots and overcome personal fears, the special gives unique insight into their character and life stories. Joining them on the island to perform exclusively will be Grammy Award-winning artists Maroon 5 and Juanes.


Supermodels Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, Behati Prinsloo, Alessandra Ambrosio, Elsa Hosk, Martha Hunt, Jasmine Tookes, Stella Maxwell, Joan Smalls and Jac Jagaciak will talk about shooting in Puerto Rico, the significance of VS Swim to their lives and careers and what drives them.

Capturing their first of three Grammy Awards as "Best New Artist" of 2005 and going on to sell more than 17 million albums worldwide, Maroon 5's releases have gone gold and platinum in over 35 countries. The band quickly won over fans and critics alike with the hybrid rock/R&B sound they introduced on their debut album, "Songs About Jane" and their double platinum release, "It Won't be Soon Before Long." In 2010, the band debuted their third studio album, "Hands All Over," which featured the group's anthemic chart-topping smash single "Moves Like Jagger." The song has since gone on to become one of the best-selling singles of all time. Maroon 5's last album "Overexposed" reinforced the group's status as a powerhouse in popular music with all of its singles rising to the top of the charts and setting an all-time record for the most #1s (six in total) by a group in the Top 40 chart's 20-year history. The group's latest release, "V," debuted at #1 on Billboard's TOP 200 chart and features the hit singles "Maps" and "Animals," which just hit #1 on the Top 40 chart and their new single, "Sugar." On February 16, Maroon 5 will embark on a world tour that kicks off at the American Airlines Center in Dallas and takes them all over North America and then Europe.

With seven solo albums to his credit and multi-platinum sales of over 16 million copies, Juanes is the world's leading all-Spanish language rock artist - both a two-time Grammy and 20-time Latin Grammy Award winner with nine #1 singles on Billboard's Latin Singles charts. Hailed by the Associated Press as "the first truly international rock star to emerge from Latin America," Juanes is also frequently recognized as one of the Spanish-speaking world's leading social media voices with an online following of over 19 million fans. The Colombian superstar's dedication as a global activist also extends far beyond his passionate lyrics and is seen in his wide ranging charitable work for his own Mi Sangre Foundation and as a co-founder of the Paz sin Fronteras (Peace Without Borders) organization. Working with famed rock producer Steve Lillywhite, Juanes' latest album, "Loco De Amor," debuted at #1 on Billboard's "Latin Pop Albums" chart and topped iTunes sales in over a dozen countries. In addition to already winning a Latin Grammy Award, "Loco De Amor" holds a current Grammy Award nomination for Best Latin Pop Album. The new year has also seen the release of Juanes' latest single, "Juntos" (Together), recorded for the new Disney movie, "McFarland USA."

THE VICTORIA'S SECRET SWIM SPECIAL is being produced by done and dusted, inc. Edward G. Razek, Ian Stewart and Hamish Hamilton are the executive producers. Hamish Hamilton is the director.

bareMinerals® Complexion Rescue: The Best of a BB, a CC, and a Tinted Moisturizer



bareMinerals® Complexion Rescue:™ The Best of a BB, a CC, and a Tinted Moisturizer

San Francisco, CA (January 27, 2015) / PR Newswire / — Introducing bareMinerals® Complexion Rescue,™ a tinted hydrating gel cream invented by encapsulating hydrating humectants and pigment with mineral infused water to help lock in moisture upon contact with skin for instant hydration and rapid absorption.


By challenging the composition of traditional complexion emulsions that feature water on the inside and oil on the outside, Complexion Rescue takes an inside-out approach with naturally hydrating squalane at the core, surrounded by mineral-infused water. The result? A staggering 215% increase in skin hydration after just one week.*

Formulated without oil, silicone, parabens or fragrance to maintain the integrity of the skin–loving formula, Complexion Rescue combines marine botanicals and hydrating humectants to help refuel thirsty skin, energizing mineral electrolytes to help enhance skin’s appearance, and a skin–protecting antioxidant that acts as skin’s bodyguard to help defend against environmental stressors. A non–chemical, mineral–based, broad spectrum SPF 30 provides superior protection against damaging UV rays.

Beyond a thirst–quenching cure–all, this freckle–friendly skin savior is available in 10 natural–looking shades to provide effortless sheer–to–medium coverage for both workday and weekend wear. Providing just the right amount of coverage, Complexion Rescue enables skin to appear more awake and even–toned due to its imperfection–diffusing properties and naturally radiant color.

Never has a dewy, youthful–looking glow been so easy to achieve. With fuss–free application, this balanced cocktail of ingredients works synergistically to jump–start the complexion every day with a surge of refreshing hydration, revitalizing energy and advanced protection with comfortable coverage.

*Based on average results of an independent U.S. clinical study of 62 subjects

KEY INGREDIENTS:

HYDRATING HUMECTANTS
Olive–derived squalane, marine botanicals and water-loving humectants trehalose and glycerin help keep skin replenished and hydrated, while a unique emulsion delivers an instant burst of hydration in a silicone– and oil–free formula.

SKIN–LOVING ANTIOXIDANT
Globularia cordifolia ferment—also known as heart–leaved globe daisy—acts like skin’s bodyguard to help defend against environmental stressors due to its natural ability to withstand even the harshest environmental conditions.

MINERAL ELECTROLYTES
Calcium and magnesium are known to help replenish skin’s moisture barrier, while potassium is known to help keep skin’s water content in balance.

BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 30
Non–chemical, mineral–based broad spectrum SPF 30 protects skin against UV damage and environmental aggressors.

APPLICATION:
Easy to apply, Complexion Rescue feels like total freedom on your skin. Simply apply to clean skin with fingertips. Layer for additional coverage at home or on the go.
