The British beauty celebrates her decade-spanning friendship with Nars in a new campaign for Spring 2019
NARS Cosmetics has announced yesterday that world-renowned supermodel Naomi Campbell is to be the face of the brand’s upcoming Spring 2019 campaigns. This will be the third time Naomi has taken up the role for the much-loved French cosmetics and skincare company.
A longtime friend and muse of the brand’s founder and creative director, the sumptuous campaign images were also shot by the man himself - François Nars. The main image features Naomi head-on, her skin glowing and glossy lips ajar, while, in the second black and white frame, the famed model throws her head back in rapturous laughter, wearing a pillar-like dress as her toned legs protrude from either side.
“Naomi is a living icon and brings such strong personality to the camera. 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,” said Nars.
This is just the latest move in Naomi’s illustrious career. Appearing as the first black woman ever to land a Vogue cover in 1989, let alone the September issue, she has since become a vocal spokesperson advocating for higher levels of diversity within the fashion industry. NARS is a luxury brand which defines itself as embracing individuality, self-expression and creativity, so, what better brand ambassador to have than Naomi?
