Serums are amazing. They are super light and packed with active ingredients that keep your skin healthy and looking great. They also happen to be my favorite skin care product so I know just how pricey they can get. I rounded up some of the best and brightest spring serums that are well worth every penny, so if you are looking to splurge on beauty this season, these gems are a wise investment.
During Paris Fashion Week I caught up with The Webster’s Laure Heriard Dubreuil. Since her boutique stocks some of the best brands, it was no surprise that she turned up to Hotel Raphael clad in envy inducing outfits and packing some serious accessories. Over Ladurée macarons we chatted about her love for Clarins and how she combats jet lag.
“Before I came to Gilt I had worked in publishing for the past twelve years. I had most recently been Style Director of People.com and Digital Director of People Stylewatch magazine. Gilt was one of those opportunities I felt like I just had to take, they were doing something so innovative and so interesting, and were pushing the boundaries of the way people shopped, so to be able to add content to that experience in a meaningful way was a challenge that I thought was too good to pass up.
“I am very schizophrenic: I have a very strong creative side but I’m not an artist and I love the rigor and intention of science. I was a medical student in France, but for fun I went to a makeup school for four weeks over the summer. After those four weeks I was sent to do the makeup for Vogue. It was one of those moments when they send the understudy to replace the actor and the understudy becomes famous. They just had no one else to send so they sent me, and after this first shoot I became a makeup artist. I worked with Helmut Newton, my second shoot was with Guy Bourdin. It was a complete discovery of an entire world I never thought existed. If you are a biologist how can you imagine there is a whole team behind a picture? Now it seems so obvious with the internet and all those things. I loved that, so I decided to leave university. I’ve now been a makeup artist for 10 years. It was hard work but so much fun and after the shooting we were so happy and had the best dinners with the best caviar. It was a different time. Today it is so serious. We were all devoted to creating an art piece and the art piece was the picture. Nobody cared about celebrity or their name being in the magazine it was completely art.
“I started modeling a really long time ago; I’ve been doing it for eight years—since I was twelve or thirteen. My mom’s hairdresser basically asked if he could take some photos of me and I did it for free. I was young at the time and was like, “yeah I want to be a model!” So I did it and it ended up being on posters around shopping centers in Brisbane. Afterwards, my mom took me into an agency because I hadn’t been paid for it and it was a big campaign that they used for a lot of things. So I signed with an agency in Australia and then got scouted by IMG when I was fifteen. After I signed with IMG they sent me to Paris then New York after I graduated high school. I moved here around 2009 and I have been here since then.”
