We caught up with model-turned-stylist-turned-designer, LWren Scott to chat about her limited edition collaboration with cult skincare brand Caudalie.
With some of the longest legs in the business (measuring 42 inches, no less) the 6ft 3in girlfriend of Mick Jagger was everything we hoped her to be and more; welcoming, charismatic and passionate about both fashion and beauty, we could have spoken to her for hours
What was your inspiration behind the new Caudalie bottle?
Caudalies owner, Mathilde Thomas and I share a very similar philosophy for beauty and fashion we like things to be simple. Im all about female form - femininity first and foremost, so I took these elements and put them into designing the Beauty Elixir bottle.
When I started drawing the bottle I subliminally incorporated elements of my Fall/Winter collection which was very inspired by Gustav Klimt and his muse Adele Bloch Bauer; it featured lots of signature fabrics with tweed, circles and swirl patterns, which youll see on the bottle.
Whats in your make-up bag?
I love Bobbi Brown Lip Liner in Cocoa, £16, and Pot Rouge, £19, for cheeks and lips. My favourite mascara is Eyeko, £18, which I discovered on a plane and the first time I used it I said to myself, this is amazing.
By Terry Eclat de Rose, £60, tinted moisturiser is great if, like me, you never have much time to do your make-up; you can just throw it on and its so light on your skin.
My philosophy is: wear one statement product like a red lipstick and keep it in your bag to top up.
Whats your signature scent?
I have my own scent which I'm wearing now. (LWren digs out a sample-size vial of fragrance from her bag and sprays it on my wrist it smells divine like musky florals).
It goes through a few phases and the dry-down is really sexy. Its exclusive to Barneys at the moment but its coming to the UK soon.
Were you very involved in the making of the fragrance?
Very! Ive been collecting oils on my travels for years and mixing my own things, so making this perfume was really exciting. I had all the little elements and notes I wanted in it and I worked with a brilliant nose to create the final scent.
Is fragrance something youd do more of in the future?
Absolutely! I had so much fun doing it. And I keep collecting my ideas for my next time.
