You cre­ated a spe­cial holiday col­lec­tion for Guer­lain this year. What was your in­spi­ra­tion?

I was so in­spired by my trip to In­dia, where we shot The Le­gend of Shal­i­mar com­mer­cial in 2013. The col­lec­tion fea­tures all the beau­ti­ful colours of In­dia that is em­bod­ied in the Shal­i­mar scent. Blue, gold and sap­phire gem­stones are ev­ery­where in In­dia. I said to Lau­rent Boil­lot [Guer­lain pres­i­dent and CEO], “Why don’t we trans­form this into a beauty col­lec­tion and not just per­fume?” That’s how the col­lec­tion came about. It means so much to me es­pe­cially since the prof­its from the sale go to the Nakedheart Foun­da­tion, which I founded in 2004 to help chil­drenwith spe­cialneeds.

How far have you trav­elled with guer­lain?

Across Jaipur in In­dia, be­hind the walls of Lamu­ralla Roja in Spain, and around China.

What has been the cra­zi­est thing you have done with the brand?

Def­i­nitely the pro­duc­tion of the Shal­i­mar com­mer­cial with film-maker Brunoaveil­lan. We shot it in just three days, when it was sup­posed to be done over 10. That was quite crazy; we worked very long hours but it was my de­ci­sion be­cause I had to go back to Paris. I had an event with a group of autis­tic chil­dren vis­it­ing Dis­ney­land thatwas or­gan­ised in ad­vance.

What are your favourite Guer­lain prod­ucts?

I’m a huge fan of the Ter­ra­cotta bronz­ing pow­der and high­lighter. I also love the Météorites (pic­tured) be­causeit gives the skin a beau­ti­ful glow. It’s my lat­est make-up es­sen­tial.
