Sylvie Chantecaille is a modern Renaissance woman. The art-collector-turned-cosmetics pioneer is known for balancing the latest science and technology with natural, holistic ingredients in her award-winning luxury cosmetics, skincare, and fragrance brand, Chantecaille, which has continued to set new standards for modern luxury in its 20 years.

The accidental beauty mogul grew up in a family of art collectors in Paris and spent her life preparing to follow suit, until destiny finally arrived once she moved to New York in the ’70s.

Cosmetics queen Kylie Jenner has teamed up with The Grinch and they are likely to steal Christmas – with sales of her make-up range.

The beauty mogul, 23, looked stunning posing in a shimmering emerald outfit and red bikini as her Kylie x The Grinch Christmas collection was launched on Thursday.

And if the reality TV star’s past success is anything to go by, it will be celebrity rivals such as Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Victoria Beckham and Lady Gaga who will be green with envy.

Mendik, Larry Silverstein and Harry B. Helmsley.

While he dropped out of New York University in the 1950s, Mr. Solow, who was self-taught in fine art appreciation, amassed one of the city’s notable private collections of Renaissance and modern art, with works by van Gogh, Joan Miró, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Balthus, Picasso, Matisse, Botticelli, Giacometti, Morris Louis and Mark Rothko, as well as Egyptian antiquities and African art.
