Beauty agenda: voting open for US FiFi Awards
Saturday 30 April 2011
The American edition of the perfume prize features a Consumers' Choice Award for the first time - votes can be submitted through May 12. Also coming up over the next weeks: the Makeup Show in New York, Beautyworld in Tokyo, and a new exhibition on beauty culture in Los Angeles.
6th Makeup Show NYC
New York, USA
Growing from 40 to 70 exhibitors since its debut in 2005, The Makeup Show NYC will once again aggregate the top pro-makeup and beauty brands such as Make Up For Ever, Temptu, Inglot, L'Oréal, MAC Cosmetics, Stila, Smashbox, and others, and offer deep pro discounts from 20-60 percent off. Last year, The Makeup Show NYC show broke its record attendance for the two-day event, attracting over 5,000 attendees.
13th Beautyworld Japan
Since its premiere in 1998, Beautyworld Japan has recorded a growing product spectrum and rising visitor numbers, though it still lags in prestige compared to the original German version of Beautyworld. Yet, when it comes to Asia's cosmetics market, it's an industry event not to be missed.
May 21 - November 27
Los Angeles, USA
The Annenberg Space for Photography's new display will explore the myths and legends as well as the perils of beauty and its industry. Documenting the evolution of the definition of beauty throughout the 20th and 21st centuries, the exhibition will feature 170 photographs and more than 500 digital images by renowned photographers including Herb Ritts and Man Ray and the contemporary David LaChapelle, Ellen von Unwerth, and Terry Richardson.

The Oscars of the fragrance world have been given to the most creative noses in the industry for the past 39 years and the ceremony is attended by more than 1,000 members of the international fragrance community.
