Modeled after Sephora's flagship on Paris' Champs Elysees, the new Times Square store will be designed "to give passersby a bird's-eye view of the store and will feature all products on one level," the retailer says. French architect Gerard Barrau will design the store, which will be flanked by two "gallery" spaces featuring global cultural exhibits and books relating to beauty and art. Sephora currently operates 61 stores in the U.S., more than 200 locations in Europe and recently expanded into Japan
