According to Women’s Wear Daily, the makeup maestro has just been named the creative and image director for Dior, effective immediately. Philips will follow in the footsteps of Tyen, who has worked with the brand for over 30 years but will remain with the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton.
Philips officially severed ties with #CCertified brand in 2013 after 5 years and several makeup musts, including the iconic Jade nail polish and even grey blush, as well as unforgettable runways looks to go freelance for a while but maintained close ties. “Peter Philips has left an indelible mark on Chanel Make-Up and his contribution to the Brand is an important part of the Chanel legacy,” Chanel’s statement read when he departed. “He will remain a cherished friend and contributor to the House of Chanel.”
“His talent and his unique and modern vision of beauty are recognized around the world,” Claude Martinez, president and chief executive officer of Parfums Christian Dior, said in a statement. And they’re sure to do wonders as he set off to create new classics for the cosmetics company to join fan favorites like the Dior Show Mascara and Airflash complexion products.
We can’t wait to see what Philips has up his sleeve. Best of luck!
