Francois Nars shows his skills as a multi-tasker with a beautiful editorial in Vogue Nippon. The famed makeup artist shoots the story and transforms the babyfaced Anna de Rijk into a futuristic siren in the process. Nars’ frequent collaborator Lena Koro handles the brightly colored makeup, while Patti Wilson styles Anna in the now ubiquitous Miu Miu collection, the end result is a glam story with some truly inspiring looks.

Model News:
We’ve always been big fans of Karmen Pedaru; her energy backstage is just ridiculously awesome. Read her interview with W about being a former Estonian soccer goalie and chocolate chip lover (specially made by close friend Karlie Kloss).

Speaking of Karlie Kloss…. Karlie is, in the words of Jean Paul Gaultier “inspires and is inspired”. Galliano says “She’s one of those girls, like a Naomi, like a Linda, like a Shalom.” That’s some major praise.

Though Francois Nars is best known for his makeup artistry (remember the incredible new wave looks at Marc Jacobs F/W 09) and eponymous cosmetics line he has also made waves as a photographer. The latest issue of Vogue Nippon features Nars’ elegant style for what else – a stellar beauty editorial. Platinum blondes Julia Dunstall, Iekeliene Stange and Daul Kim wear daring, colorful looks courtesy of Diane Kendal and they manage to make even rainbow shadows and pastel lips look wearable.
