Jason Wu teams with Lancôme

Jason Wu has teamed up with Lancôme to create a make-up line inspired by the "truly modern, sexy and confident woman".

The designer explained why he chose to partner with the global beauty brand on his debut limited-edition cosmetics range.

Jason says Lancôme's make-up values match his fashion ones, which is why this was the perfect pairing.

"What was so intriguing about partnering with Lancôme, beyond the unparalleled quality and luxury of their products, is the notion that the brand doesn’t impose a model of beauty but rather invites women to embrace themselves," Jason told WWD. "This is the embodiment of a truly modern, sexy and confident woman, much like the women I design for.”

The designer hinted that a cosmetics collection is something he had thought about for the future at the end of last year.

Jason revealed he'd begun to think about a character to inspire a potential make-up line while promoting his contemporary clothing range Miss Wu, which launched in department store Nordstrom last month.

The results of his collaboration with Lancôme will be seen when the collection is offered on counters from September this year.

“Beauty has always been extremely important to the Jason Wu label and I’ve made it an integral part of my fashion shows,” Jason explained.

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician. The images showed Bey in full makeup for the 2013 L’Oreal ad campaign — but with the kinds of “imperfections” we all have — beauty marks, bumps, creases. In the wake of Cindy Crawford’s unretouched photos, the images have been praised by critics of a beauty industry that sets impossibly high standards, standards that Queen Bey …
