NEW YORK, Dec. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Avon Products, Inc. (NYSE: AVP) today announced that it has signed world-famous tennis champions, Venus Williams and Serena Williams, to an exclusive three-year global advertising and promotional agreement. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Under the agreement, the Williams sisters will appear in television and print advertising in connection with Avon's "Let's Talk" advertising campaign, which launched earlier this year.
The new television advertising utilizing Venus and Serena will launch nationally in the United States in the first quarter of 2001. Creative imagery will be made available to Avon's global markets for use in brochures, collateral materials, public relations materials, Internet, and events.
The Williams sisters also will appear as spokespersons for Avon and its products, be featured on Avon-owned websites, and make personal appearances at Avon-sponsored events such as the company's annual National Representative Convention. In addition, they will be involved with the launch of Avon Wellness, the company's new global line of women's health and well-being products including vitamins and nutritional supplements.
"Venus and Serena are wonderful role models for young women all over the world," said Janice Spector, vice president of advertising for Avon. "Their winning spirit and dedication to being their best is a perfect fit with Avon's heritage of empowering women to strive for their own goals and aspirations. And their close personal relationship is at the very essence of Avon's "Let's Talk" campaign, which celebrates the relationships women value in their lives."
"This is a wonderful opportunity for Serena and me to partner with Avon in their efforts to communicate to women the importance of achieving their goals and taking care of their health," said Venus Williams.
"Venus and I are very excited to be associated with a company like Avon that's trusted by women all over the world and that plays such an important role in their lives," Serena Williams said.
The Williams sisters are world-class athletes who have risen to the very pinnacle of professional tennis. Venus Williams, 20, is the 2000 Wimbledon and U.S. Open Singles Champion. She won gold medals at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney in both singles and doubles (partnering with her sister, Serena.) In addition to winning the Olympic gold medal in doubles, Serena Williams, age 19, is also the 1999 U.S. Open Singles Champion.

Avon Expects to Achieve Its Fourth Quarter and Full-Year Earnings Targets; Company Comfortable With Analysts' EPS Estimates for 2001

NEW YORK, Dec. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Avon Products, Inc. (NYSE: AVP) said today that it expects to report fourth quarter and full-year earnings that are in line with Wall Street expectations and the guidance provided by the company in October. Avon also indicated that it is comfortable with analysts' estimates for earnings in 2001.
Earnings for the fourth quarter, to be reported on or around January 25, are expected to be in line with the consensus estimate of $.65 per share. For the full year, earnings are expected to be $1.87 per share, which would be a 14% increase over 1999 and solidly within the target of low to mid-teens growth set by the company at the beginning of the year.
Sales growth for the fourth quarter is expected to be in the 4-5% range, after an approximate 5% negative impact from foreign currency translation. Local currency sales are expected to be up in the high single digits, driven by continued solid growth in units and Representatives.
For the full year, sales are expected to be up approximately 7%, which is at the high end of the company's target range, despite a steady strengthening of the dollar during 2000. Sales in local currencies for the year should be up approximately 11%.
Commenting on the outlook for 2001, Avon's president and chief executive officer, Andrea Jung, said: "We intend to build on the momentum we have established this year, when we invested an additional nearly $100 million to strengthen Avon's brand image and direct selling channel. We will continue to increase strategic spending in our core business next year while also funding new growth opportunities. Equally important, we expect to deliver another year of solid sales and earnings growth in 2001."
Ms. Jung said Avon is targeting sales growth for 2001 in the mid
single-digit range, despite an estimated negative foreign currency impact of 6%. Local currency sales are planned to rise double digits again, reflecting strong fundamentals in the company's worldwide direct selling operations.
Regarding the outlook for earnings next year, Ms. Jung said, "Based on everything we see right now, we're comfortable with the range of $2.10 to $2.12 per share that most analysts are estimating, even after continued healthy increases to fund our growth strategies in 2001.
"We think our goals are realistic and achievable and we are confident we will continue to deliver value for our shareholders in 2001 on top of a strong 2000," Ms. Jung added.
Avon will conduct a teleconference for investors and analysts to discuss the 2000-2001 outlook at 1:30 p.m. Eastern time today. The conference can be accessed live via the Avon Investor section of the company's web site http://www.avon.com.

Author Beverly Sassoon Set to Astound the Beauty and Health World Once Again

Author Beverly Sassoon Set to Astound the Beauty and Health World Once Again On the 25th Anniversary of Her First Bestseller

BOCA RATON, Fla., Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Beverly Sassoon is poised once again to have a major impact on the world of health and beauty with the release of her provocatively titled (but as yet unrevealed) new book scheduled to be published in the spring.
A series of media events marking the release of the new title are planned to coincide with the 25th Anniversary of her first book, "A YEAR OF BEAUTY AND HEALTH," which reached the #3 spot on the New York Times best-seller list.
According to book publisher Thomas J. Madden, chairman of TransMedia Group Publishing, "beauty, health and lifestyle insiders are already buzzing about what is sure to be another blockbuster as this new book brings all of Beverly's common sense living lifestyle tips to the modern family."
The launch of the new book also "is certain to draw more exposure to the publicly traded International Cosmetics Marketing Co. d/b/a Beverly Sassoon & Company(TM) (OTC Bulletin Board: ICMK), which will significantly increase the company's revenue stream," said company CEO, Menderes Akdag. "We have a unique financial advantage because through our exclusive world wide license agreement, Beverly Sassoon & Company(TM) retains all rights as well as a substantial percentage of revenue from sales of the book."
"We have an extraordinary high profile launch planned for this book," said Madden, "including major talk show appearances and leading magazine interviews. This is the book today's woman has been waiting for. Fortunately the wait won't be much longer."
"I want to make women aware of their lifestyle choices in a manner that hasn't been done before," said Beverly Sassoon. "Twenty-five years ago my first book taught women how to be more beautiful and healthy, this new book will enlighten women in a whole different way."
Co-authoring with Beverly is her son and business partner, Elan Vidal Sassoon, which will bring an interesting generational and historic twist, since the first book was co-authored with her former husband and Elan's father, hairstyle king Vidal Sassoon.
"Elan brings with him vast knowledge in the fields of exercise and
nutrition," said Menderes Akdag. "Elan heads the vitamin supplement division of Beverly Sassoon & Company and has been instrumental in having the world's foremost athletes use their products."
International Cosmetics Marketing Co. d/b/a Beverly Sassoon & Company, a publicly traded company, began its operations in late 1999. The company develops, markets, and distributes health and beauty consumer products through direct sales and e-commerce. The company has an exclusive world-wide license agreement with Beverly Sassoon International, L.L.C., Beverly Sassoon, and Elan Sassoon, which grants the Company the exclusive world-wide rights to utilize the names and likeness of "Beverly Sassoon" and "Elan Sassoon."
This press release contains forward-looking statements, which involve numerous risks and uncertainties. The foregoing information does not constitute an offer to sell securities. The foregoing information includes forward-looking statements. Those statements are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause the Company's actual results to differ materially from those described by the statements.

American Society of Plastic Surgeons Celebrates 70 Years

Posted Tuesday, February 6, 2001 - 11:47 by Diane
American Society of Plastic Surgeons Celebrates 70 Years Looks Back on Growth and Accomplishments of the Specialty

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill., Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovation, progress and growth have marked the 70 years that the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) has been in existence. Celebrating its 70th anniversary, the ASPS was established in 1931 to promote research, education and board certification of plastic surgeons. Today, its more than 5,000 member board-certified plastic
surgeons perform both cosmetic surgery, reshaping normal body structures to improve appearance, and reconstructive surgery to correct abnormal structures of the body.
(Photo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20000720/LOGO )
Millions of people have benefited from the skill and artistry of board-certified ASPS plastic surgeons. In 1999 more than two million plastic surgery procedures were performed (the latest year for which statistics are available). Cosmetic surgery procedures have nearly tripled since 1992.
"Plastic surgeons offer hope and happiness to their patients, both
cosmetic and reconstructive," says Walter Erhardt, MD, ASPS president. "Over the past 70 years, plastic surgery has grown from treating horrible war wounds inflicted on soldiers of World War I to correcting the abnormal appearance of the body caused by birth defects, developmental abnormalities, tumors and disease to purely aesthetic improvements that allow people to achieve the look
they're striving for when exercise and skin care can't help them."
Cosmetic surgery is more popular than ever. Both men and women are choosing cosmetic procedures to keep their youthful appearance and feel good about themselves. Advances in the specialty have made cosmetic surgery easier and safer than ever before. The five most popular procedures in 1999 were: liposuction, breast augmentation, eyelid surgery, facelifts and tummy tucks.
More men are taking advantage of the expertise of ASPS members. Since 1992, there has been an almost 50 percent increase in cosmetic surgery procedures for men. Eleven percent of all cosmetic surgery procedures are now performed on men. Liposuction, eyelid surgery and nose reshaping are the three most popular male procedures.
More than 1.25 million reconstructive procedures were performed by board-certified plastic surgeons in 1999. In addition to birth defects, developmental abnormalities, tumors and disease, commonly cited causes of abnormalities, dog attacks, auto accidents, and mishaps with seasonal equipment, snow blowers, lawn mowers, etc., can also be the cause of a trip to the operating room under the careful hands of a board-certified plastic surgeon.
ASPS members take their talents across the country and world to help patients in need. Since 1988, more than 2 million people in developing countries and throughout the U.S. have benefited from the humanitarian work of plastic surgeons who provide free reconstructive surgery for the correction of deformities. The Reconstructive Surgeons Volunteer Program (RSVP) is an umbrella organization formed by the Plastic Surgery Educational Foundation, the educational and research arm of ASPS.
The care and concern of plastic surgeons for their patients goes beyond the operating room. The ASPS supported and worked for passage of the landmark 1998 Women's Health and Cancer Rights Act, which requires insurance companies to cover the cost of breast reconstruction for women who have undergone a mastectomy after breast cancer. The Act has made breast reconstruction more available to women, and through a wealth of information, patients now have more knowledge about the procedure and its benefits. The number of women who had breast reconstruction following mastectomy increased 180 percent since 1992.
ASPS members' advocacy work on behalf of their patients continues in its support of and fight for passage of The Treatment of Children's Deformities Act (TCDA). This bill would require insurance companies to cover reconstructive surgery for children with congenital or developmental deformities, diseases or injuries.
In response to public concern regarding office-based surgery, ASPS
established a task force in 2000 to study the safety of office-based surgical facilities and fully examine the benefits of choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon who works in an accredited facility.
ASPS members are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) or Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. These surgeons must have graduated from an accredited medical school; completed a combination of at least five years of general surgery and plastic surgery residency training; and passed comprehensive oral and written exams. The ASPS is accredited by
the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide
continuing medical education for physicians.

The ASPS, founded in 1931, will celebrate throughout 2001 as the society commemorates its 70th year as the largest plastic surgery organization in the world. To find an ABPS-certified plastic surgeon in your area or to learn more about cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, call the Plastic Surgery Information Service at (888) 4-PLASTIC (475-2783) or visit http://www.plasticsurgery.org .

'All She Wants is Diamonds ... ' Women Put Diamonds At Top of Wish Lists

'All She Wants is Diamonds ... ' Women Put Diamonds At Top of Wish Lists

NEW YORK, Dec. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Topping wish lists once again are
diamonds. Whether it's a diamond line bracelet, diamond stud earrings or a diamond necklace, the sparkling gems of choice for the season are diamonds.
"As we approach the dawn of the new millennium, a gift of diamond jewelry becomes an instant heirloom," according to Elizabeth Florence, Director of the Jewelry Information Center, a nonprofit trade association based in New York City. "The sparkle and fire of a diamond is a joy to behold, and a treasure to last for generations to come."
(Photo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20001207/NYTH012 )
But every woman wants her diamond to be special and unique -- now there are options in diamond cuts to help achieve a more personal and individual look. There are new branded diamonds entering jewelry stores that consumers are starting to ask for by name. The most popular is the GABRIELLE(R) diamond.
Heralded as the new standard in diamonds, the GABRIELLE(R), created by master diamond cutter, Gabi Tolkowsky, has 105 facets of fire and light (traditional diamond cuts have 58 facets) releasing a never-before-seen brilliance and incomparable fire. It is the number and position of the 47 additional facets and Gabi's expertise, which give the GABRIELLE(R) diamond its extraordinary sparkle.
"A diamond holds a special place in every woman's heart," says the
diamond's creator Tolkowsky. "It creates the emotion we call beauty." All GABRIELLE(R) diamonds are cut by hand and each is as individual and unique as the woman who wears it, he explains.
This new diamond phenomenon is the first to come in all diamond shapes and sizes. The GABRIELLE(R) diamond is available in 7 different shapes: round, square, pear, marquise, oval, emerald and heart shape. The most wanted for this season can be found in earrings, pendant necklaces, rings and line bracelets.
When shopping for a special piece of diamond jewelry this holiday,
remember the new cuts and styles of the GABRIELLE(R) diamond. The
GABRIELLE(R) is available in your local jewelry store; customers can find the location nearest them by logging on to http://www.GabrielleDiamonds.com.
