Today was a good day to be in Paris. For the first day of Paris Fashion Week, makeup artist Pat McGrath and her assistants partnered with Vogue to set up shop in the Jardin de Tuileries to apply her signature Gold 001 makeup to everyone from Bella Hadid to Kris Jenner. It’s the same makeup we loved from the Prada show in Milan and her editorial with Kim Kardashian-West for Violet Grey. Gold 001 is also the first product McGrath will be releasing from Pat McGrath Labs, a venture she announced on her new website on Wednesday. Models and local Parisians took advantage of the moment to score some face time with the legendary makeup artist (and have their photo snapped by the one and only Patrick Demarchelier).

Instead of vigilance, ads promise that stem cells play an integral role in everything from face lifts to breast augmentations. The FDA, however, has only approved the use of stem cells for one cosmetic procedure that treats very fine wrinkles on the face—making more dramatic claims quite false, and dangerous.
