Before the days of Photoshop, Botox and airbrushing, Hollywood had its own secret for complexion perfection: Erno Laszlo. Legendary starlets Ava Gardener, Marilyn Monroe, Katharine Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Greta Garbo – the most glamorous women to ever grace the silver screen – all sought the genius of this dermatological pioneer. He custom-crafted individual skincare regimens for these icons, unintentionally creating the first special effects for naturally luminous skin.
85 Has Never Looked Better
To celebrate the brand’s 85th anniversary, Erno Laszlo launched a limited-edition Hollywood collection, inspired by the original divas. The kit is comprised of five new products originally formulated for Ava, Marilyn, Katharine, Grace and Greta – with updated technology to glamorize the visage of today’s modern woman.
The Hollywood Collection
We got to spend the night testing these luxurious products to start the New Year off to a fresh start with some old school glam:
Instant Eye Repair (Ava Gardener): Capture the effect of Ava’s captivating eyes with the luxurious firming cream formulated to smooth away fine lines and fade dark circles.
Intensive Porcelain Veil (Katharine Hepburn): Achieve the delicately flawless perfection of Katharine with this youth-guarding, feather-light moisturizer enriched with vitamins and antioxidants formulated to shield the skin from accelerated aging and protect against environmental damage.
Morning Beauty Rescue (Marilyn Monroe):
We know Marilyn liked to party, but you could never see it on her face because of her love of Laszlo. This velvety smooth whipped gel instantly brightens and rejuvenates the complexion.
Refresh Moisture Infusion (Grace Kelly): Grace's classic beauty provides the inspiration to this moisture rich elixir comprised of blended botanicals and tourmaline gem technology that restore skin's supple quality and clarity.
Velvet Night Cream (Greta Garbo): Like the starlet it was originally created for, this cream is incredibly rich. Apply at night when cells are recovering and awake to find diminished fine lines and youthfully soft and radiant skin.
The Hollywood Collection is valued at $250, but is available for a limited time at Nordstrom.com for $125.
