In tribute to iconic fashion photographer Guy Bourdin, NARS has just revealed their brand new Holiday 2013 collection inspired by his work.
As a child, NARS Founder and Creative Director François Nars discovered Guy Bourdin’s color-saturated, seductive, suspenseful photography in the pages of French Vogue, a world of dangerous women and intriguing sensual decadence. It was then that Nars was first inspired to become a makeup artist. Today François Nars honors Bourdin’s legacy with an entire limited edition collection for Holiday 2013, created in the spirit of Guy Bourdin: bold, uncompromising color and high-impact finishes in shades that launch us into his intriguing, high-fashion world. Guy Bourdin’s spellbinding and cinematic narratives served as the apex of the sexually charged fashion photography of the ’70s. Now, NARS celebrates his legacy with bold, uninhibited color and high-impact finishes inspired by the audacious, high-fashion, and decadent world of Guy Bourdin.
And the elements of Bourdin’s bold signature compositions are translated into vivid color tones and slick finishes, with products encompassing everything from blush and lipstick to nail polish and eye shadow.
And each item comes with a fittingly fun name, from “Cinematic” Eye Shadows to “Wishful Thinking” and “Mississippi Mermaid” to “No Limits” and “Tomorrow’s Red” Nail Varnish. We absolutely loved the Cinematic Lipstick in “Last Tango”. Ideal for those who like to make a statement, there’s a style to suit every look – so get prettied up and prepare to smolder on the dance floor, in the bedroom and beyond.
Available from November 1st at Sephora.
