Today, Givenchy is relaunching for the all-important American market, and the pregnant Tyler's presence is thus required. Flying the corporate flag in head to toe Givenchy-pale pink pleated dress, black cardigan and black heels- with minimal jewellery. She looks incredibly pretty with none of the airy-fairyness of her most famous acting role to date, as the elf princess Arwen in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and says that being involved with a big cosmetic house is a dream come true.
It was Paulina Porizkova, the one time face of Esteé Lauder and among the most successful supermodels of the late 1980's, who showed Tyler the joy of products. "Her bathroom is filled with every product Esteé Lauder ever made," recalls Tyler. "I've always been a big product person and I remember her saying, 'Get yourself a cosmetic contract and you can have all the products you want!'"
