Hollywood Hibiscus First Lady™

Who looks perfectly polished and camera-ready, no matter the time of day or night? FIRST LADY™, of course! Her endless elegance keeps her cool, composed, and perfectly coiffed, no matter if she’s hosting an all-star soirée or sporting casual kicks when creating a community garden. While she always looks cover-shoot ready, watch out: beneath her beauty is a brilliant mind, constantly thinking three steps ahead of everyone else. Brains, beauty, and a big heart keep her social calendar booked solid. But she’s a true friend, never forgetting her long-time BFFs Earth Angel™ and Social Butterfly™, whether walking the red carpet with them or celebrating their successes with a girls’ night in. When First Lady™ enters the room, heads turn—and people listen, because she dazzles.  


You might be a FIRST LADY™ if:

  • Your natural beauty shines, whether in couture or classic jeans.
  • You believe in doing good—and being a good friend to all.
  • Your brain power outshines your flashiest jewels—and you’re not afraid to use it
