Changes at Lancôme

I am afraid I have some sad news...

Gucci Westman’s association with Lancôme has come to an end and she will conclude her role as International Artistic Director of Lancôme. Her contributions to the brand have been vast, from her imaginative and creative colour collections to the New York Fashion Week program with emerging designers, as well as the bridge she built with the world of Hollywood.

"Gucci's eye for beauty has helped guide Lancôme to the next level in the worlds of fashion and celebrity," states Lancôme USA President Eric Lauzat. "We are grateful for all she's done to elevate our brand with her ability, instinct and grace."

Says Westman, "My time with Lancôme has been wonderful. It was an incredible learning experience being with a brand of this caliber, and I'd like to thank the Lancôme team for the opportunities and friendship they extended to me."

Westman joined the brand in 2003 and her first colour collection, French Riviera, debuted in Spring 2005. During her time with Lancôme, she created eight colour collections. Her final two collaborations are the Spring 2008 L.U.C.I. Color Collection and the Thakoon Pout-á-Porter lipstick.

Good luck Gucci with your new endeavours!
