NEW YORK CITY, March 1, 2013 --
Director/Photographer Charlie Wan has joined the creative
collective at CHRLX Beauty, a boutique division of CHRLX. A
former art director in the motion graphics industry, Wan's credits
span a wide variety of projects including stage visuals for The
Rolling Stones' world tour and 2010's record-breaking Super
Bowl halftime show for rock legends The Who. His fashion and
beauty clients include L'Oreal Professionnel, Pinko, Fred Perry,
Oribe Hair Care, Chi, Farouk System and

Wan's fellow collaborators at CHRLX Beauty include executive
producer Corey Budro, beauty retouch artist and flame
compositor Philana Dias and editor and animator Kyle Derleth.

"We're excited to have Charlie join this creative-driven collective
because, like us, he is passionate about advancing whatever
medium he works in," said Budro. "We have been doing high-end
work in the commercial arena for a long time, collaborating with
directors like Darren Aronofsky, Pierluca De Carlo and CHRLX
director Ryan Dunn. Our recent internal projects have allowed
us to push the creative boundaries beyond the current landscape
of beauty advertising, stuff that advertisers aren't necessarily
doing yet. Adding Charlie to our roster only helps to further that
creative goal."

Wan is drawn to the CHRLX Beauty collective and their shared
thirst for adventure. "My goal is to create a new aesthetic and
voice in the beauty industry," said Wan, who garnered attention
last year for "BLOOM," an award-winner at the La Jolla Fashion
Film Festival. He is quickly becoming one of the preeminent
directorial voices in fashion films. "CHRLX Beauty offers a new
approach to creating something exciting in fashion and beauty, a
group of artists dedicated to the holistic marriage of VFX, design,
and live-action."

"It's important to us that every project feels curated and special,"
said Budro. "That begins with the core talent infused into the
culture of our collective. Bringing a photographer and filmmaker
of Charlie's caliber into the fold is fantastic not only for CHRLX
Beauty but for the greater good of the CHRLX team."

CHRLX Beauty is finishing up an internal piece that traces
the origin of lipstick in the style of Kubrick's 2001. In addition,
Wan, and CHRLX Beauty are about to go into production on
an internal piece tentatively called "Lean on Me," a poetically
choreographed vision of the delicate balance of relationships and
their beauty.
