Pascal Dangin responsible for the Creative Direction.

In interviews, Olivier often asked to explain what it is exactly in Balmain’s DNA that sets them apart. He said in a statement, ” I often answer that our instantly recognizable silhouette and style is due in part to my insistence on reflecting the way that members of my generation think, live and dress today. My generation’s distinctive spirit, values and taste are echoed in the rebellious attitude of the Balmain Army, the diversity of our runway and the singular tailoring of the house’s offerings.”

“While planning for and shooting this campaign, I wanted to ensure that the same youthful spirit was front and center in each and every final image. By relying on a casting of fresh, new faces and keeping things upbeat and relaxed, my team and I have managed to create a campaign that stands out for its young, spontaneous and positive vibe,” he added.

Featured Article: Hailee Steinfeld for Marie Claire US February 2018


With a booming music career—more than 1.4 billion streams on Spotify, the lead single on the upcoming Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack—and an acting resume that already includes Oscar and Golden Globe nominations, there’s nothing can stop this young starlet! Inside the February issue of Marie Claire US, Steinfeld opens up about finding love, advice she would give to her younger self, using her platform for good, and many more.

On pursuing her music career: “As an actor, I’m masked by characters, protected by them. But as a musician, it’s my story, my voice, my face. It’s me on that stage talking about that horrible experience I went through and [saying,] ‘Here, I’m going to sing about it.’ It’s such a different kind of vulnerable. To connect with fans, there’s pressure in feeling like I have to do things that I’m uncomfortable with, in terms of opening up enough about myself.”

On finding love: “I’m trying to protect myself and have a bit of a guard up, but I also want to fall in love and know why love hurts.”

Advice she’d give to her younger self: “Listen to yourself. So many people will try and steer you in a certain direction— not saying that that’s the wrong direction at all—but you have to know what’s right for you. Trust yourself, follow your heart, and do what makes you happy. Don’t forget to live for yourself.”

On using her platform for good: “I’ve worked hard and gotten to a place where I have a voice: How can I use it? What can I, as a human, as an artist, do?”

L’Oréal Paris x Balmain 2017 Ad Campaign


Balmain and L’Oréal Paris have joined forces on a limited edition lip colour collection, designed by Balmain‘s creative director Olivier Rousteing. The lipstick will come in 12 shades and is set to debut later this September. The collection will also feature three lipstick “jewels” in which the product will be encased in a wearable accessory.

Rousteing said that the partnership was an opportunity to make Balmain accessible to a wider audience. “I’m really close to luxury but at the same time I’m also close to pop culture and I think a lot of people who may love the Balmain universe can’t afford the clothes.”

“The collaboration with L’Oréal Paris opens up luxury in a different way. For [consumers] to get a piece of Balmain [makeup] is a way for them to get into the Balmain universe. Makeup has always been part of my aesthetic and my silhouette. Having the opportunity to do that with an institution like L’Oréal Paris for me is an incredible dream,” he continue.

The campaign image is featuring Olivier himself and a group of L’Oréal spokesmodels and Balmain girls such as Lara Stone, Doutzen Kroes, Ming Xi, Soo Joo Park, Grace Bol, Valentina Sampaio, Neelam Gill, Maria Borges, Ysaunny Brito, Alexina Graham, Luma Grothe and Cindy Bruna. (source)
