Cassie, Selita & Solange Chat With Carol’s Daughter Founder

27 April 2011, 01.19 | Posted in Make- up,Cosmetics, advertisement, celebrity | 3 comments »

We posted the announcement last week that Carol’s Daughter was rolling out a new “polyethnic” marketing campaign, featuring Cassie, Selita Ebanks and Solange Knowles. At the time, we also predicted the campaign would ruffle some feathers and indeed comments were hot and heavy here, here and here.

Posters were ticked off for a few different reasons but mainly because the campaign was labeled polyethic but featured models who were all the same light shade. In the video above, Carol’s Daughter founder, Lisa Price, sits down with the threesome and attempts to do some clean up in aisle 4, featuring a whole mess of hurt feelings. She zeroes in on the theme of hair though once again, folks are going to point out that among the three ladies, there isn’t a lot of texture diversity.

CarrolsDaughter Carols Daughter Launches Polyethnic Ad Campaign

Brooklyn-born beauty line, Carol’s Daughter, founded by Lisa Price (who started selling at street fairs assisted by a friend of mine!), recently announced plans for a new marketing campaign featuring Solange Knowles, Selita Ebanks and Cassie. According to Steve Stoute (yes, the music industry guy), who is the lead investor, the model’s were chosen for their “polyethnic” backgrounds:

“What we’re doing now is moving into a polyethnic space. We want to be the first beauty brand that truly captures the beauty of the tapestry of skin types in America. When I say polyethnic, I mean women who are made up of several ethnicities. If you ask them what they are, they’re going to use a lot of different words to describe themselves. That’s in line with the Census data coming out — people are checking much more than two boxes. We believe we’ve put together a shoot that celebrates many different ethnicities, to become a mirror of what America’s really becoming.”

That may be true, but given racial politics in America, it’s hard to believe that the message behind this campaign isn’t going to ruffle some feathers since making claims to be “mixed” is still viewed by many as a politically incorrect attempt to escape being black. So….let’s see what discussions arise from this, but complete silence would suprise me.

Beyonce Walks Super Exclusive Tom Ford Show

TomFordBeyonce Beyonce Walks Super Exclusive Tom Ford Show

Tom Ford relaunched his name as a woman’s wear designer with a Spring 2011 runway show featuring Beyonce, Julianne Moore, Lauren Hutton, Rita Wilson, Daphne Guinness, Farida Khelfa, as well as models Amber Valletta and Stella Tennant. According to Cathy Horyn of the NY Times, the show was held in Ford’s Madison Avenue men’s store and was limited to about 100 editors, who all must have been in heaven to be transported back to a world before the barbarians, i.e. bloggers, crossed the barriers. No images were released (the one on this page is Beyonce arriving), which in addition to protecting Ford’s ideas, certainly creates mystique, and though none will be released until January, one has to bet they will be leaked here and there as needed to create buzz. One more pic of Solange Knowles, wearing a leopard print turban, after the flip. UPDATE: A blurry image showing the shimmery top-half of Beyonce’s dress added.

Solange in Honey Mag

solangehoney Solange in Honey Mag

Solange’s new hair has generated her a ton of buzz, but my gut feeling is that the move wasn’t all that calculated on her part. It is just flat out crazy how much heat the topic of women’s hair can generate. Samson should have been a story about a woman. Anyway, go check out more images of Solange at Honey and also read the interview. That’s a solid family those Knowles.
