Charlotte Gainsbourg x NARS

French artist and fashion muse Charlotte Gainsbourg is collaborating with François Nars for a limited edition capsule makeup collection that arrives on counters this month. It is carefully edited, sophisticated and chic – just like Gainsbourg herself. Here’s the backstory to the collection!

nars x charlotte gainsbourg “Charlotte is an incredibly charming and giving person with an instinctive taste and style. I admire her for building a career with no compromise, no limits, and totally dedicating herself to it. Her work reflects her soul more than anyone I know.” – Francois Nars

 Brand: NARS

City: New York City

Collaboration: NARS x Charlotte Gainsbourg Collection

The muse: Charlotte is the ultimate French “cool girl”. She embodies effortless beauty and ease. The daughter of Paris’ most influential and ultimate bohemians, Serge Gainsbourg, France’s biggest rock star poet and provocateur, and his muse, Jane Birkin, the actor and English rose. Charlotte inherited her love of music and acting, making a name for herself in both industries. She’s appeared in campaigns for Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton. Most recently, she appeared in Independence Day 2. She has a new music project launching at the same time as this collection.

The quote: “Letting go of things and not being afraid of being ridiculous or over-the-top – I think that’s the main thing for me to work on.” – Charlotte Gainsbourg

The Madonna connection: Gainsbourg was featured on the Madonna single “What It Feels Like For A Girl” from 2000’s Music album

The makeup: an inspiring and timeless collection of products with a focus on the eyes

The style: deep, intense eye makeup enhanced by natural-looking skin, tinted cheeks and bitten sheer lips
