5 Minutes with L’Wren Scott…

We caught up with model-turned-stylist-turned-designer


By Joely Walker

We caught up with model-turned-stylist-turned-designer, L’Wren 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?

Caudalie’s owner, Mathilde Thomas and I share a very similar philosophy for beauty and fashion – we like things to be simple. I’m 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 you’ll see on the bottle.

What’s 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 it’s 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.

What’s your signature scent?

I have my own scent which I'm wearing now. (L’Wren 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. It’s exclusive to Barney’s at the moment but it’s coming to the UK soon.

Were you very involved in the making of the fragrance?

Very! I’ve 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 you’d do more of in the future?

Absolutely! I had so much fun doing it. And I keep collecting my ideas for my next time.

What products do you swear by when you’re travelling?

I love Rodin Face Oil, £97; I use it on my hands, face, cuticles – and then I always spray Caudalie Elixir, £32, over the top.
