"Bonjour, we're at Le Bon Marché in Paris, one of my favorite department stores in the world!" says Gucci, who is making a mandatory stop at the iconic retailer in the 1st arrondissement. It's the middle of a whirlwind Paris Fashion Week, and between catching runway shows (Chloé! Chanel!) and prepping actresses Emily Ratajkowski, Nicola Peltz, and Lucy Hale for appearances, she's in need of a radiance boost and a little restorative reset at the store's clean beauty outpost on the first floor.
After a quick spin past the Westman Atelier counter for a glassy just-had-a-facial boost using Lit Up Highlight stick, she's ready to shop. The goal is to keep her choices streamlined—there's only so much room in her suitcase!—while hunting down new discoveries from the most intriguing French beauty brands. In her basket, there's a little black bottle of hair-and-body cleanser from David Mallett, the city's most sought-after hairstylist, and a slim biocellulose sheet mask with a double detoxifying-and-hydrating punch. C27's luxurious lifting repair balm promises to drench her tired skin in nutrients, while a beautifully crafted gua sha body tool is perfect for a lymph draining nighttime ritual. And for the plane ride home? Hervé Herau's petite "discovery" skincare kit for cleansing and hydrating is just the pint-size ticket.
