“Because I’m worth it”, the world’s leading beauty brand signature that’s just celebrated its
50th anniversary, was the first in the world to underline the value of self-worth. Coined in 1971 by Ilon Specht, a young 23-year-old female copywriter at Manhattan ad agency McCann, the L’Oréal Paris
signature was considered revolutionary at the time in its bold message and in that it featured a woman’s voice (most advertisements for women’s products at the time featured a male voice, which was thought to be more authoritative). “Because We’re Worth It” has since become symbolic with empowering women of all ages and backgrounds to believe in their beauty and sense of worth. Since its inception, the memorable slogan has been translated into 40 languages, reflecting the brand’s global expansion and diverse notion of beauty.
