Prefers Tilda Swinton

0 Comments

FrancoiTilda_NARSs Nars prefers women such as Swinton, over models. Nars shot Swinton himself for the latest campaign.

I like edgy fashion and strong features. I cannot photograph models that are very weak or too pretty; there always needs to be some strength, so the choice of the model is very important to me. If I don’t like the model I cannot take the picture, and I do not choose “boring” beauty models — I prefer beauty with character.

I just had a reverse Zoolander moment, where I think I heard someone else’s name and suddenly, slooooooooowly heard my own. I’m still recovering from that moment. You could tell me my dress fell off and I’d believe you.
