Bobbi Brown Cosmetics is proud to announce that American actress Katie Holmes has partnered with Bobbi Brown Cosmetics as the brand’s first-ever celebrity face.
“Katie Holmes epitomizes the modern ‘Bobbi woman’… I think of her as the modern day Ali McGraw, who I have always admired,” says Bobbi Brown, “Katie is a classic natural beauty, entrepreneur, and mother. When I met her, I thought she was a natural fit for my brand, and felt an instant connection with her because we have so much in common.”
“Bobbi is exceptional and Bobbi Brown Cosmetics is a company that we, as women, all turn to because it is makeup that is very accessible and makes you feel pretty,” says Holmes, “Sometimes it is just a lipstick or a blush that makes you feel like you can do what you need to do. Makeup is powerful and I am thrilled to be a part of this brand.”
The first iteration of the partnership will appear in spring 2013 print ads, light boxes, on-counter and with supporting editorial features. Additionally, Bobbi will be the lead makeup artist at the Spring/Summer 2013 Holmes & Yang Fashion Show, the eponymous line founded by Katie Holmes and celebrity stylist Jeanne Yang.
“This is a very exciting time for Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, and we are thrilled to be embarking on this new partnership with Katie, whose influence spans the globe,” says Estee Lauder Specialty Brands President Maureen Case, “We are confident that this partnership will raise the brand’s profile with strong, smart, powerful women, while also introducing the brand and its compelling ethos to new consumers.”
Makeup artist Bobbi Brown revolutionized the beauty industry in 1991 with the launch of 10 brown-based lipsticks and a simple philosophy that “makeup is a way for a woman to look and feel like herself, only prettier and more confident.” In 1995, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics was acquired by the Esteé Lauder Companies; however, Bobbi retains an active role in the company as Chief Creative Officer. More than 20 years later, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics is the number one makeup artist brand founded by a woman. It is available in 60 countries and offers a full range of color cosmetics, skincare, fragrance and accessories.
