After creating detailed and imaginative collections for Disney and Marvel, Bésame Cosmetics is now honoring memorable women across history with our newest “Iconic Women Series”. Introducing our first leading lady: Lucille Ball!
Widely known as the spunky redhead from the hit sitcom I Love Lucy, Lucille Ball was a beloved comedienne that captured America’s heart and broke barriers for women in the entertainment business.
After a career in “B movies” at RKO, Lucy fought to bring her life with Desi Arnaz to television. With I Love Lucy, Ball brought the first multiethnic relationship to TV, invented the 3-camera sitcom, and created one of the most popular shows in history. Afterwards, Lucy continued to produce programs like The Lucy Show, The Untouchables, and Star Trek. When her company Desilu bought RKO, she became the first female head of a studio. From chorus girl to owner, Lucille Ball shaped entertainment forever. This limited release collection celebrates the life and legacy of this iconic woman.
