With a star-studded roster of spokesmodels that includes Lily Collins, Lupita Nyong'o, Julia Roberts, Penelope Cruz and Kate Winslet, the Lancôme's Paris Couture Week bash was bound to be an exciting one. The cosmetic giant pulled out all the stops for its 80th birthday party on Tuesday night (July 7) as Kylie Minogue took the stage to perform her hits and attendees kept cool with lace fans.
Actress Isabella Rossellini, one of the beauty brand's first ever faces, played emcee at the shindig, introducing each of the A-list ambassadors, which also included Canadian model Daria Werbowy and Alma Jodorowsky, one by one as guests clapped and cheered (by the time Julia was called up rest assured the crowd was in a state of pandemonium!). Isabella shared her excitement over the milestone and being on stage with a group of "strong, intelligent and joyful" women. Cue the pink confetti!
In addition to the traits mentioned by Isabella, the group is an incredibly stylish one. Each woman showed off her personality in a unique take on black, aside from Lupita, who dazzled in a silver sequinned gown.
After the starry group discussed their involvement with Lancôme, they heading off to mingle with the well-heeled guests and friends in the VIP section. Lupita hit the dance floor to sing, dance and fan herself as Bruno Mars blasted through the speakers. Lily held court with famed photographer Ellen von Unwerth and showcased the most flawless pixie cut.
Showing that their relationships go beyond their work for Lancôme, Julia, Kate and Penelope held hands as they posed for photographers, with the Spanish beauty smouldering courtesy of her signature tousled waves and smoky eyes (so perfect!).

Model Petra Nemcova was red hot in a one-shoulder jumpsuit, showing us a hair flip of epic proportions as she expertly posed for a snap. She also hopped the velvet rope to hit the main dance floor with one of the Les Twins brothers (you know, Beyonce's wild-haired, lookalike backup dancers) - that's right, the dance-off of our dreams.
Pint-sized popstar Kylie, who was every inch the lady in red in a ruched scarlet strapless dress, launched a show-stopping performance with her hit song "Timebomb," and proceeded to sing a sultry, Marilyn Monroe-worthy version of "Happy Birthday" to Lancôme. Cue more pink confetti!
It's proving to be a busy week for Chrissy, who attended the star-studded Vogue party the previous evening as part of Paris's annual couture extravaganza.
