We aren't seriously comparing the process of developing medications with what goes on in the chem labs of cosmetics companies, are we?


I wouldn't care to take a guess at who the target audience of this perfume campaign is, but at the last ABT performance I attended in June I was seated in row G of the orchestra, so among some more affluent folk, and next to a couple of women of retirement age, who used smart phones and social media, and as they were flipping though their programs, one of them said, "Misty Copeland. That sounds familiar." Probably not the perfume's target audience. (They did know who Alessandra Ferri was.)


Many different industries share similar business models. For example, the oil industry and pharmaceutical industry are very similar. High capital and high uncertainty. With regard to cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, dirac got it right in a prior post. 


As far as the target audience, those that can afford and appreciate the product. Full stop.

A bit off topic, but Hallberg is now a Tiffany spokesperson.  He seems to be ramping up his endorsements, trying to cash in while he still can.  His relationship as a dancer at the Bolshoi seems to have come to an end.

And Nike!

Misty Copeland featured prominently in last night's Kennedy Center Honors. She paid tribute to honoree Carmen de Lavallade before dancing a pdd ("Bill") with Robert Fairchild. De Lavallade's segment concluded with a mass dance to "She's Got the Whole World in Her Hands" performed by alumni from ABT, Ailey and DTH.




Scroll a little past half-way down the article for amazing photos of de Lavallade and Copeland on the red carpet. That is quite the queenly silk purple gown on Carmen de Lavallade!

Thanks for the heads-up and the link -- looking forward to the telecast later in the winter.
