Beautiful Lives: Laura Mercier

This Time, It's Personal
Three decades after getting her start, Mercier has no plans of slowing down. For the first time in some years, she brushed and daubed and drew and smoothed on the set of her 2013 color campaign, due out early next year. She rounded up some old co-conspirators, too, enlisting Serge Normant on hair and Patrick Demarchelier behind the lens. "I love her vision of women, her incomparable talent, her philosophy of life," Normant says. "I'm blessed to know her and call her my friend."
