François Nars is a man of many talents. As well as creating a beauty brand that's turned into a worldwide phenomenon — largely down to his multi-award-winning Orgasm Blush — and seen him able to buy his own small island in the South Pacific, he's secured a spot as Marc Jacobs go-to runway makeup artist and is a pretty ace photographer. Yep, what initially started as a passion soon turned into him shooting his own advertising campaigns (he still does to this day) and launching a photography book, X-Ray, in 1999. His striking images mean that he's regularly called upon for his skills behind the lens. His latest project is a stunning editorial spread of German model Toni Garrn in Vogue Japan. Call us biased, but we think François' expert face painting skills allow him to take beautiful shots of makeup, no?
Move over Candice, shove down a little Erin! There's a new leggy blonde joining the Victoria's Secret Angel team. Say hello to Toni Garrn. The German-born beauty made her VS fashion show debut just last year, and has a slew of campaigns for the likes of Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein, Prada and Chloé in the bag. Her super-high cheekbones and classic brand of beauty means that Toni can easily switch gears between high-fashion aloofness and the sex kitten appeal required for the lingerie behemoth. Toni started rumours of her impending winged-status by stepping out with Erin Heatherton and Lindsay Ellington at VS event in NYC last week, but now it's official! We have to admit we weren't super familiar with Ms Garrn, so thought it best to do a little research. Step inside to see her stellar CV.
We've just spotted German model Toni Garrn as the face of Givenchy's 2012 Spring-Summer Collection. The inspiration behind the line was poppies and pointillism (the art of joining dots together to form an image) and the products are comprised of bright palettes in pink, spearmint and lilac, cherry red lips and rosy blush. With a field-like background setting the scene, Toni sports silky straight strands teamed with a flawless complexion, a pop of bold green eyeshadow and a coordinating red nail and lip colour. While the products won't hit our shores until mid-late next year, what do you think of the brand's latest ad campaign?
Nothing says Summer like an all white ensemble. Pity we're heading into Winter! We're going to take this Camilla Akrans' lensed shoot as a point of inspiration for combating those dreary days ahead, with head to toe white (Blake Lively knows what we're talking about). US Harper's Bazaar takes us away to sunshine filled LA with this spread, showcasing looks by Dolce & Gabbana, Dior and Celine and The Row on the gorgeous Toni Garrn. Want to fight the cold-weather blues with us? Then suit up, coz it's set to be blinding (white) Winter!
