Brandy: New Face of Beauty

1,300 members of the Fashion & Beauty Industry came together in June 2001 to give Brandy the NEW FACE OF BEAUTY Award.

“Beauty is from the inside.There are a lot of ‘beautiful’ people who are not so beautiful because they’re not nice. And there are a lot of really beautiful people who go unrecognized,” she said.

Cosmetic-industry executives, fashion designers, photographers, editors and modeling agency heads came together with The Cosmetic Executive Women group to hold the ceremony in New York City in June 2001.
