Newly dubbed the “Architect of Beauty”, Hollywood stylist and media entrepreneur Derek Warburton celebrates Pride Month 2022 with every intention of bringing attention to the LGBTQ+ community and the challenges each individual experiences, especially as of late.
The stars aligned for him as he launched his PRIDE makeup collection with sustainable beauty conglomerate Face Stockholm and GLSEN.org. The Derek Fabulous Collection came out just in time to celebrate being #outloudandproud!
Celebrities such as Taryn Manning, Daniel Gillies, Peta Murgatroyd, Cynthia Bailey, and Tara Reid, along with Princess Martha of Norway and her new fiance Shaman Durek were out in full force to join the festivities at Doors. Nyc, a fashion-forward pop-up shop on Melrose Avenue last weekend.
Speaking on his behalf at the launch, Cynthia Bailey presented an uplifting speech, sharing the media entrepreneur and stylist’s series of successful ventures, which now includes the beauty realm while reminiscing on their long-spanning friendship. Even actress Taryn Manning spoke of his honesty, kindness and his humanitarian work.
The makeup collection comprises several vibrant palettes in bright colours, customized glitter, and lipstick tubes. All proceeds from the Derek Fabulous Collection benefit GLSEN as a way of tribute from Warburton. “I knew this was the beginning of a new chapter, and it is important for me to pay this forward. I want to honour the boy I was–for staying alive so I can help other children find their light, the way I found mine.”
GLSEN focuses on activating supportive educators, and uplifting student-led movements, which have powered initiatives like the Day of Silence, Ally Week, and more.
