Naomi Campbell Is the Star of a New Nars Cosmetics Campaign
Naomi Campbell and Nars? That's one powerhouse beauty partnership. The legendary supermodel has just been announced as the new face of Nars' 2019 Spring Campaigns. According to Nars, this is Campbell's third campaign with the brand. She also appeared in campaigns in 2004 and 1996.
Her first campaign with the brand for 2019, titled Radiance Repowered, is centered around radiant skin.
"Naomi is a living icon and brings such strong personality to the camera," François Nars said in an announcement posted on Instagram. "She and I are like family. I have known her since the very beginning of her career. From the start, I have admired her, her beauty, and her style."
François Nars also noted in a release that it was important to have a woman of color as the face of the brand's new campaigns. "My choice to use models of color such as… Naomi Campbell… was a deliberate one. I feel that makeup is universal and should apply to everybody. I didn’t want to create a makeup line for one ethnic group. It had to be multi-ethnic. To me, beauty is beauty. It doesn’t matter what color the skin is."
Campbell is one of the most distinguished and celebrated supermodels of our time (and probably the first person that pops into your head when you say '90s supermodel), so this collaboration with Nars, a favorite backstage during Fashion Month and a brand known for delivering products that perform, is a perfect match.
As for Campbell's favorite Nars products? Oh, they're solid choices. "I love Mountain Soft Velvet Pressed Powder, Sophia Eyeshadow, and the Highlighting Powders," she revealed in a release.
