Prabal + Sephora = Sleek & Cool


Your favorite Sephora cast member will no longer greet you in a staid black ensemble. Expect to see a flash of red and a much more sleek silhouette as envisioned by hotter than hot designer Prabal Gurung.

Before continuing, I must confess... I've been a huge fan of Prabal's since long before he became so popular. In 2010 he made an appearance here in Dallas at the flagship Neiman Marcus and I jumped at the chance to see his collection. He was already on the popularity upswing at that point, but it was one of those moments when you knew you were standing in the presence of greatness before the whole world fully caught on.

Fast forward to today and he - and his fresh modern aesthetic - have taken the fashion world by storm. He has truly become the darling of design, and having examined some of his more elaborate pieces in person, I can assure you that his craftsmanship and attention to detail are a large factor in his success. Add that to his healthy good looks, easy and magnanimous demeanor and his ability to consistently produce imaginative collections and you've described the combo that has taken the fashion world by storm.

Now... on to those updated uniforms for your male or female favorite beauty expert. Here's what BellaSugar has to say:

Designer Prabal Gurung has just previewed the new uniforms he designed for Sephora, and they're a big change from the plain black ensembles you're used to seeing. Now, male "cast members" will have their choice of sleek, black separates with red detailing, and women will be wearing fitted pantsuits with blazers or black trapeze dresses with red accents. The classic palette and sophisticated feel of the new attire is chic, and there's something a little futuristic about the styling, too. All in all, it's a Prabal Gurung collection beauty aficionados are sure to see frequently.

How this will impact the beauty peddler's bottom line is hard to say. But the updated look will surely energize the staff and the overall appearance of the store. That flash of red - like the heel of a Louboutin - adds much needed zing to the full black outfit. Be sure to see the video of these fetching outfits in person.

What the beautiful people are saying...

Something to say, gorgeous?
