Kate Moss and Georgia May Jagger, arrived in the legendary branded Rimmel London black cab for the occasion.A fashion show commemorating 18 models with iconic looks describing the evolution of fashion and make-up of the last 180 years from 1834 to 2014 . Rita Ora dressed in Moschino , has embodied the style of the contemporary London and closed the show by singing her singles Shiner Light Ya , Hey Ya and RIP supported by Dj Fat Tony , dear friend of Kate Moss, who animated the party .
A unique day , as was Eugene Rimmel , the talented perfumer born in 1820 who founded the empire in 1834 when he moved from France to London to open its first shop in Bond Street. A man who in times when ” marketing” was not born yet, had the idea to” advertise ” his brand by printing the address of the store on fliers distributed at the Royal Opera House in London. He also invented the first “non- toxic” mascara , also known even today, just as ” rimmel ” . So…. Happy Birthday Rimmel , we wish you another great 180 years !
