With a spectacular event during New York Fashion Week, P&G Prestige brought to life its purpose of “touching and improving lives with beauty beyond imagination.” 

To visually represent the evolution of P&G Prestige, the company’s beauty segment that includes prestige fragrances and the SK-II brand, the team partnered with W Magazine and Editor-in-Chief Stefano Tonchi to host a star-studded evening February 14 at The Armory Park Avenue in New York. The event unveiled The Ever Changing Face of Beauty, a unique video installation created by acclaimed fashion photographer Solve Sundsbo.

The event was attended by more than 900 guests including key influencers and P&G Prestige brand ambassadors such as Cate Blanchett, Sienna Miller, Evan Rachel Wood, Chris Evans, Adam Senn, Frederic Fekkai, Olivia Palermo, Felicity Jones -- as well as others like Coco Rocha, Diane von Furstenberg, Daphne Guinness, Nicole Miller, Martha Stewart and many more.

The Ever Changing Face of Beauty was a multi-screen film installation that explored the idea of beauty as a constantly shifting, constantly changing force. The exhibit featured two 60-foot video screens (shown at right) representing man and woman and explored the consequences of the global evolution of beauty.

“We’re thrilled to partner with P&G Prestige on an exploration of beauty in flux,” said Tonchi. “Our partnership aims to admire beauty as an ever-evolving force. W’s collaboration with P&G Prestige is an opportunity for their consumers to see P&G brands in the transformative manner that only W can showcase."

"W  has a courageously innovative approach to constantly delight the men and women that love beauty,” said Joanne Crewes, President, Global Prestige. “We share these elements of the W spirit, which made them a natural choice of partners for us.”

Highlights from the event have been featured on WWD, New York Times and, among other media outlets. Links to the coverage are included below.
