We are honored—and humbled—to welcome Chris Salgardo, the president of Kiehl's USA and author of the new book, Manmade. Not only does he ensure that one of the oldest beauty brands in the world is still one of the coolest and most cutting-edge (Kiehl's, est. 1851!), but he is someone who actually puts himself on the line when it comes to philanthropy. He is not writing checks behind a desk; he is getting his butt on a motorcycle and riding to raise money for the causes that move him. That, and so many other charity initiatives he has done under Kiehl's.
If Fat Mascara ever goes corporate, let it be in Chris Salgardo style.
But before that...
Let's talk Coachella: Festival season is upon us, and there are too many headdresses and bindis to count. Is cultural misappropriation killing your buzz, too? Or are we being too harsh? Tweet us, email us, let us know.
Bikini waxing: Jess had a discussion with a friend that had us all Women's Studies 101. Do we have to wax? Is bikini hair removal an option, or sort of a cultural obligation, like shaving your legs?
The Oscars of Fragrance: The Fragrance Foundation Awards are coming up in June—did we mention Alec Baldwin is hosting?—and while most of the categories are voted on by The Industry, the rest of us can vote on the Consumer Choice Awards! Yes! Should Ariana Grande go home with an award? Does victory belong to V.S.? Was Johnny Depp's work for Dior for naught? Use your vote!
