The fabulously fierce actress Tilda Swindon the new face of Nars, and will appear in the brand’s spring 2015 campaign imagery as photographed by François Nars himself. Swindon joins fellow actress Charlotte Rampling who is currently the face of Nars’s Audacious Lipstick Collection.
Speaking of working with Swindon, Nars said, “As a photographer, working with an actress like Tilda is very enjoyable. She is a living legend. I love her bold style and really admire her work. As an actress, she brings such strong personality to the camera. And as a woman, she lives the experience of transformation and expression. She was the perfect choice for Nars.”
In an exclusive piece for Vogue‘s October issue about his life in beauty to celebrate the brand’s twentieth anniversary this year, Nars wrote: “My favourite actresses – Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Silvana Mangano, Romy Schneider, Catherine Deneuve, Charlotte Rampling, Tilda Swinton – are not what you would call typical beauties.”
“Tilda is almost ethereal, but these women I’ve used for Nars over the years are beautiful in an unconventional sense. I find my best work as a make-up artist has always been with those kinds of faces,” he added.
