Marcelle is extremely proud to announce Karine Vanasse as the new face for the brand. The actress, well known for her many roles in television series as well as on the big screen, will soon appear in Marcelle skincare and make-up advertising.
Karine Vanasse, the new face of Marcelle
Karine always appeared as naturally beautiful, with no need for superficial extravagance. Marcelle, with its hypo-allergenic and perfume-free products, is a brand that fits perfectly with her personality and that matches her values. “When a public figure associates with a brand, states Karine Vanasse, the general public isn’t fooled. People feel when there is truth behind the collaboration, when the person’s values correspond to those of the brand.” If the actress is happy and proud of her new role as spokesmodel for Marcelle skincare and make-up, it truly is because she shares the brand’s philosophy and core traits. Gentleness, efficacy, authenticity, trustworthiness, focusing on natural beauty, Canadian-made; those are some of the values shared by both the accomplished woman that is Karine Vanasse and the cosmetic brand.
« I enjoy taking care of myself, caring for my skin, confides Vanasse. It’s a moment for myself! I like the idea of making women feel beautiful by accentuating their best features rather than looking to be beautiful. Canadian women feel a really close connection to Marcelle. It has been developed for us, for our skin. The quality of the products is there and I believe that is why Canadian women keep going back to the brand.”
A page in history
Marcelle celebrates its 80th anniversary in 2013. This new association marks yet another landmark in the brand’s beauty credentials. “It is an honor for us that Karine accepted to become the new face of Marcelle and to write with us another page in our brand history”, proudly says François Lafortune, Vice-President of Marketing for Groupe Marcelle. “Karine’s authenticity, her keen mind and her contagious liveliness really speaks to women, who can relate to her”, adds Cathy Samson, Marketing Director for Marcelle.
The association between Marcelle and Karine Vanasse had to be strong, significant, sincere and more profound than a signature on a dotted line between a brand and a beautiful celebrity. Karine, with her personal qualities, her natural beauty and her authenticity embodies the brand image. Marcelle is extremely proud to confirm that Karine Vanasse will be seen as the new spokesmodel in ads for some of the brand’s biggest spring 2013 launches.
