Swinton for NARS

Francois Nars has signed Scottish actress Tilda Swinton to front his Spring 2015 ad campaigns. The campaign imagery features the iconic actress in a series of four portraits photographed by Founder and Creative Director, Francois Nars, himself. The celeb makeup artist chose Tilda for her signature beauty and unparalleled character.

“As a photographer, working with an actress like Tilda is very enjoyable,” says Francois. “She is a living legend. I love her bold style and really admire her work. As an actress, she brings such a strong personality to the camera. And as a woman, she lives the experience of transformation and expression. She was the perfect choice for NARS.”

The NARS makeup brand was launched in 1994. Having worked with all the major fashion magazines and a roster of celebrities including Madonna, Francois translated his signature style into a luxe makeup artistry brand.
