When we spent time with Virginie Courtin-Clarins two years ago at Fashion's Night Out, we could tell this woman would soon be moving into a very visible, very powerful new position within the family business.
Well, we were right. (We love when that happens.) Now, Ms. Courtin-Clarins is the director of development, marketing, and communications at Thierry Mugler, which is owned by Groupe Clarins. And, as we predicted, she is already making some huge moves: first, by hiring the brand's new artistic director, David Koma, and, now, by announcing Georgia May Jagger as the newest face of the brand's iconic Angel perfume.
When Courtin-Clarins was in NYC for Monday night's Met Gala, the busy exec made some time to hang with us at the Mandarin Oriental to talk eyebrows, skin care, and business. One thing's for sure: This woman has that effortless French glamour in her blood. Read on to steal all of her beauty secrets and hear what's up next.
