For those who haven’t heard, Pür’s youngest model, Marianna Gunther, has been winning praise (and prizes) at leading beauty pageants throughout the Southeast. A native of Kennesaw, Georgia, Marianna began her Miss Teen journey last September when she won the title of Teen Miss North Georgia State Fair.  This month, our favorite teen model-and-artist earned a top spot in Miss Georgia Teen America, wowing in her gorgeous teal gown and, of course, Pür Minerals makeup. On behalf of everyone at Pür: we’re so proud of you!
For more on Marianna’s amazing life—including how she spent seven years at sea on her family’s sailboat—read our exclusive interview.

Maybe it was the buzz around The Artist—the silent film redux that took home five awards, including Best Picture—that inspired the classic revival, but whatever the cause, the result was stunning. Here’s a brief look at who stole the pre-show scene and who came up short on the red carpet.

We love it when members of the Pür team make news. So when we heard that our hometown magazine The Atlantan wanted to profile CEO JuE Wong, we were thrilled.

Golden Globe’s Best and Worst Dressed

Monday, January 16, 2012 | COLUMNS: Around Town, Campaigns, current affairs, events, film, news

IStock_000000067375MediumThe stars were shining last night, as the 69th Golden Globe Awards honored film and television’s best and brightest. And while the ceremony itself was fairly tame (barring the odd expletive from bad boy host Ricky Gervais), the red carpet run-up was anything but. Long considered the dress rehearsal for the Oscars, the Globes are where A-listers show off their more adventuresome—and questionable—tastes, and last night was no exception. Here’s your Golden Globe style sum-up—from the most stunning standouts to our favorite five-star fashion disasters.


Happy Holidays from Our Family to Yours

Shutterstock_7024150Sometimes it’s hard to believe the holidays are almost here (especially here in Atlanta, where the temperature is still in the mid-60s). Yet as family and friends gather from near and far, everywhere there is a sense of cheer and wonder. However you celebrate it, we at Pür Minerals wish you a season filled with love, laughter and joy. While the gifts certainly delight, the thing we’re most thankful for is you. You lift our spirits just by being good to yourself and expressing who you are. In short, just by being you.

Since its inception in 1995, the star-studded event has become a holiday tradition, as synonymous with the season as Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade or Black Friday, albeit, not without its share of controversy. Despite being criticized for commercialism and suggestive content, the program drew 9 million viewers last year alone and included performers Akon and Katy Perry, plus supermodel Adriana Lima in the $2 million Bombshell Fantasy Bra.
