The exhilarating formula of Rouge G de Guerlain can be seen on the radiant lips of Natalia Vodianova - the new face of Guerlain. At the heart of this unique formula is a true “jewellery ingredient”: ruby powder, obtained from a genuine ruby gem. It interacts with the ultraviolet rays in daylight to reveal spectacular radiance, unachieved to date. Moreover, the concentration of pigments ensures instantaneous and intense lip definition, while a cocktail of precious active ingredients leaves lips perfectly smooth, plumped up and incredibly comfortable.

LOUIS VUITTON CITY GUIDES 2009 Since 1999, the Louis vuitton city guides have been capturing the spirit of different cities. To celebrate ten years of travelling across Europe and the rest of the world, the 2009 edition features new destinations, a new design and new sections - and is held in a new travel accessory.

THE “BAL DES VAMPIRES” LOOK FROM CÉLINE Actress Emmanuelle Seigner has taken on the role of guest designer for the Céline fashion house and designed a pair of cowboy boots and bag under the name of “Le Bal des Vampires”.This tongue-in-cheek name is a light-hearted, stylish and colourful reference to the 1967 “Dance of the Vampires” film directed by her husband, Roman Polanski.
