The campaign supporting this launch was filmed at the Louvre Museum with Zendaya, Aya Nakamura, Amanda Seyfried and He Cong, all ambassadors for this collaboration. These four personalities, each an image of the beauty of our time, embody the characteristics and myths of some sculptural icons through their strong personalities.

The Louvre, a source of inspiration

From its beginnings in 1793, the Louvre Museum was intended as a place where artists could learn from the works of great masters, being inspired to create their own pieces. Today, the Louvre is a living museum, an inexhaustible source of inspiration for all creators, while art history continues to illuminate our times in many fields. For this unprecedented partnership, Lancôme drew inspiration from the Venus de Milo, the Winged Victory of Samothrace, Corine, Diana of Gabies, Nymph with a Scorpion, Echo, Hygieia, Venus of Arles and finally Hermaphrodite. Each of these masterpieces, through its history and that of the myth it embodies, inspired Lisa Eldridge, Lancôme's makeup director, to create this makeup collection.

"I am delighted with this first collaboration with Lancôme, which skilfully illustrates the various forms of beauty presented in the Louvre collections, where cultures and civilizations meet beyond earth and time. The choice of the Venus de Milo, the Nymph with a scorpion or Diana Gabies, as ambassadors for this campaign, brings new perspectives on iconic and inspiring images of antiquity, contrasting them with contemporary representations and standards.The history of art and beauty, its "making" and its search, are Intricately linked, pop culture, with its movement of images, advertising, and the social media that pervade our daily lives, often draws upon these timeless, sometimes clever, other times ancient, representations and visuals. Louvre are surprising and exciting in the way that they allow us to see and understand how those standards are interpreted, transformed and evolved. Through this collaboration, the Louvre, a center for contemporary art, helps to write today's vision of beauty."
