Michèle Fitoussi’s new biography, Helena Rubinstein: The Woman Who Invented Beauty, tells the story of Helena Rubinstein and her popular beauty brand, from her initial success in Australia to the international empire she left behind after her death, in 1965. Rubinstein was among the first to popularize cosmetics for the average woman, and marketed not just her products’ results but also the rigorous scientific testing that went into developing them. She was an avid follower of fashion and a collector of art, which she displayed at her many homes in America and Europe. Michèle Fitoussi is a writer, journalist, and screenwriter based in Paris, where for the past 25 years she has been an editor at Elle magazine.
