Kevyn Aucoin Beauty & the Beast in Me
Directed by Lori Kaye
90 minutes, USA
This extraordinary film documents renowned celebrity makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin, who fought his way from rural Louisiana to become the most sought after makeup artist of his time. At the heart of the documentary is an abundance of never before seen archival footage of some of the most iconic moments in fashion history, shot by Kevyn himself throughout his life and career. Intimate and uncensored moments with the celebrated paragons of 80s and 90s fashion and pop culture include Naomi Campbell, Cher, Cindy Crawford, Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, Andie MacDowell, Paulina Porizkova, Tina Turner, and Amber Valletta. Interviews with celebrities, colleagues, family, friends, and former lovers explain and share why they think Kevyn was able to achieve all of his dreams and create so much beauty, yet struggled to see the beauty within himself.
