L’Oreal Paris Celebrates Its Balmain Collaboration In Cannes

L’Oreal Paris celebrated its 20th year in Cannes yesterday at the annual film festival in the Riviera, with a special Balmain theme.

Hyping up the forthcoming Balmain Paris x L’Oreal Paris lipstick collection, the fashion house’s creative director, Olivier Rousteing, dressed the L’Oreal ambassadors in dresses of his own design for the red carpet.
