L’Oréal Paris names Kendall Jenner next global ambassador.
Kenny J has a new role: global ambassador at beauty giant L’Oréal Paris. As part of her partnership, Jenner will lead the brand’s makeup campaigns starting this September (will we also see her return to the runways during NYFW the same month? Only time will tell!) In an alert, L’Oréal teased the supermodel’s favorite products too. And dare we cause a frenzy making them sell out at the drug store quicker than you can say ‘TikTok,’ she name checked the OG Telescopic Mascara, Infallible Fresh Wear Foundation, and the newly-unveiled Infallible Matte Resistance liquid lippie. Run!
Hetrick-Martin Institute’s School’s Out benefit broke records with well-attended bash
The annual HMI School’s Out benefit, a staple on the social calendar since 1988, returned over the weekend, raising a staggering and record-breaking $600,000 to benefit LGBTQIA youth, thanks to the support of generous Hamptonites. This year’s installment was hosted at the home of Nathan Orsman and Jose Castro, with Douglas Elliman’s Benjamin Dixon, Alessandro Ford-Rippolone, and The Points Guy founder Brian Kelly on event co-chair duty. The fun-filled fête featured synchronized swimmers with parasols and hunky mermen, which delighted guests as they dined on a delectable dinner provided by Duryea’s, STK Steak, Almond, and Kerber’s Farm. Designer Dennis Basso led the paddle raise auction during dinner, with major prizes such as tickets to his NYFW show and first class airline flights to anywhere in the world fetching top dollar. Guests on the evening included Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, Candace Bushnell, Don Lemon, Antoni Porowski, Peter Som, Timo Weiland, and many, many more.
