Move over fashionistas, Jason Wu is taking a brief backseat to fashion and launching a makeup collection with Lancôme. After Michelle Obama chose his design for her second inaugural gown, the 28-year-old is becoming even more notable. His new beauty line is expected to drop in September with loads of color.
“Beauty has always been extremely important to the Jason Wu label and I’ve made it an integral part of my fashion shows,” Wu told WWD. “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. This is the embodiment of a truly modern, sexy and confident woman, much like the women I design for.”
Congrats Jason Wu on the continued success of your fashion and beauty industry domination.
