LFW Backstage Beauty Alert: NARS Crosses The Pond
After spreading its backstage beauty wings last month, sponsoring its first-ever Couture show at Bouchra Jarrar in Paris, NARS Cosmetics made a convincing case for taking its face-painting show on the road. While François Nars’ beloved brand is a fixture at New York fashion week, frequently turning up at Marc Jacobs, Rodarte, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Thakoon, it has yet to become a global fashion force to be reckoned with in cities across the pond. But that’s about to change. Style.com has just learned that Nars will be spear-heading makeup and nail duties at Christopher Kane’s Fall show in London, supplying makeup artist Lucia Pieroni and nail artist Sophy Robson with a veritable rainbow of pigments and polishes with which to create runway magic. Word on the street is that this is just the beginning of a an expansion that, if you ask us, is a long time coming. Stay tuned.
