The Pretty Price Check: Your Friday round-up of what we paid for beauty this week.
- $42,500: How much the highest bidder paid for a week “working” at Vogue in a charity auction to benefit the RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights. My favorite part is that “the experience” was originally valued at $10,000. Because that’s a typical entry level fashion magazine weekly salary. (Via The Cut.)
- $3000: What Jude Law dropped on La Mer wrinkle cream at Nordstrom this week. Because you asked.
- 4,795,357: The number of Botox injections administered in 2009. Which is down four percent from 2008. But is still 4,795,357 shots of Botox. Average cost? $405 a pop. (Via Jezebel and the New York Times.)
- $330 billion: The current value of the global beauty industry, says business historian Geoffrey G. Jones, author of Beauty Imagined: A History of the Global Beauty Industry. (Via Harvard Business School.)
