Revlon by Marchesa Red Carpet Collection
Limited-Edition Cosmetics Collection to Benefit Half the Sky Movement
Revlon and Marchesa introduce the third collection from their successful collaboration, The Revlon by Marchesa Red Carpet Collection. The Red Carpet Collection is a celebration of the elegance, femininity and beauty that is a red carpet moment. The collection is comprised of a selection of Revlon’s signature color cosmetic pieces, each beautifully packaged in a custom Marchesa design. This design was inspired by the romantic lace pattern that has been showcased on some of Marchesa’s most famous red carpet dresses.
In creating this color collection, Marchesa co-founders Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig felt it important to pay homage to their favorite red carpet beauty looks. Working with the Revlon team, they created three distinct color collections to represent these looks: The Opulent look combines a striking dark lip with glamorous jewel nail appliques; the Romantic look pairs nude lips and nail tips with powdery fresh skin, while the Daring look takes the hottest trend shades to a dramatic level.
“Beauty plays such a huge role in completing a red carpet look and we wanted this collection to be representative of some of our most iconic red carpet moments,” said Keren Craig, co-founder and textile director for Marchesa. “We were inspired by the bespoke elements found in the Marchesa collections and translated them to the packaging through beautiful hues and intricate designs. This exclusive collection makes it possible for every woman to have her own show-stopping beauty moment.
It was important for this collection to not only be representative of the glamour and beauty of both brands, but also of their charitable nature. In honor of the Revlon by Marchesa Red Carpet Collection, Revlon has provided $15,000 in funding support to Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide. This movement is a ground-breaking initiative, cutting across platforms to ignite the change needed to put an end to the oppression of women and girls worldwide, the defining issue of our time. Inspired by journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn's book of the same name, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide brings together video, websites, games, blogs and other educational tools to not only raise awareness of women's issues, but to also provide concrete steps to fight these problems and empower women.
“It was very important to us, on a personal level, that this collection have an added philanthropic element,” adds Georgina Chapman, co-founder and designer for Marchesa. “In fact, Revlon’s dedication to charity was a driving force behind our decision to work with the company, as Keren and I both value and incorporate philanthropy into our work as much as we can. We are thrilled that The Red Carpet Collection will benefit a worthy cause.”
The Revlon by Marchesa Red Carpet Collection will be available for a limited run starting in early February.
