Beautiful Lives: François Nars

Original Glamster
It didn't take long before Nars found himself working for the same publications that he used to pore over wide-eyed. He became a part of fashion's original glam squad, with photographer Steven Meisel behind the lens and Oribe Canales on hair. Together, the trio turned out spread after spread, dominating the pages of American Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Vogue Italia, and Elle in the eighties and early nineties and launching the careers of the original supermodels in the process. While Nars had the pleasure of primping Cindy, Naomi, Christy, and Kate, he counts his collaborations with Meisel and Linda Evangelista as some of his favorite work.
