Supermodel Naomi Campbell, longtime friend and muse of François Nars, is the new face of its Spring 2019 campaign

The frequent collaborators reunited for the Nars Spring 2019 ad campaign to create a series of four portraits photographed by François Nars, known for his disruptive and rule-breaking approach to makeup.

“Naomi is a living icon and brings such strong personality to the camera,” said Nars. “She and I are like family. I have known her since the very beginning of her career. From the start, I have admired her, her beauty, and her style.”

Nars continues, “I love women with strength and character, strong faces and personalities. Naomi embodies all of these qualities, which is why I always love working with her.”

This marks the legendary model’s third time as the face of the brand, a relationship built around Nars and Campbell’s friendship, which spans over two decades. The two have also worked together on countless editorials, runway shows, and projects, including X-Ray, Makeup Your Mind, and 15X15.

Campbell echoed, “François and I are like family and the same goes for Nars. I am honored to be a part of such an incredible brand for so long.”
