NARS founder François Nars and famed fashion photographer Steven Klein are bringing edginess to the holidays this year with a new makeup collaboration. Today, NARS confirmed the beauty world’s speculation regarding this unique pairing to create a collection that everyone will be coveting.

“Steven is one of the most disruptive, fearless photographers of his time. I love his work – his ability to strip down and expose his subjects, to create shocking visual narratives that are never what they seem,” says François Nars in a statement. The range, which will feature 23 limited-edition products, will showcase new packaging and evoke an edgy, provocative vibe.

“There are few hands that could do what François has done. He has impeccable taste and stands strong by his work. His colors and his eye for imagery is unique and of the highest caliber,” says Klein. The duo partnered with creative director Fabien Baron of Baron & Baron to bring the collection to life, which is set to make its debut in November.

Playboy Releases a Very Special Terry Richardson-Lensed Issue

The magazine industry’s love affair with noted alleged predator Terry Richardson continues with Playboy magazine, as the publication has finally released its 100-page, Richardson-shot special issue.

Over the past few years, the photographer’s reputation has been tarnished by claims of sexual abuse from several young models, so it feels more than a little icky to know that Richardson is still at it, photographing naked women in provocative positions. 

Richardson went through a bit of a dry spell for a while, as magazines and brands began to distance themselves from the troubled shutterbug. After a bit of a hiatus, however, longtime supporter Harper’s Bazaar released a Richardson-shot cover for February 2015.

Marc Jacobs Admits He Hates Social Media…Could Have Fooled Us

At this point, it would be unwise for any brand to ignore the power of social media. It’s a necessary aspect of marketing, selling and communicating — especially for a lifestyle brand like Marc Jacobs, which has a strong social media presence. But it seems that the designer isn’t too keen on it.

“I am so appalled by the whole social media thing,” Jacobs told Suzy Menkes in a recently-published interview for Vogue U.K. “I don’t get it, it doesn’t appeal to me, neither does a computer, or working on a laptop.” He adds: “I am just not of that generation. I get it the allure of it, but it just doesn’t appeal to me.”

Interesting, considering both of Jacobs’ brands often use social media to boost visibility and engage with customers. Consider the brand’s “Tweet Shop,” which turned customers’ tweets into currency, allowing them to get their hands on Marc Jacobs trinkets. The shop, as Glamour U.K. pointed out, had a “social media-friendly vibe.” Beyond that, for the past two seasons, Marc by Marc Jacobs has chosen its campaign models through the #CastMeMarc Instagram contest.

For someone who is so fundamentally appalled by social media, it is also quite interesting that he would choose Kendall Jenner to walk in his show and to appear in his main label’s Spring 2015 campaign. Kendall’s modeling success is believed to have much to do with her enormous social media following and her extremely social media savvy family.

But perhaps we can chalk his flip-flopping up to the inspiration for his Fall 2015 collection, Diana Vreeland. “It’s not that she couldn’t make up her mind. She was terribly decisive. It’s just that she changed her mind a day later,” he said of the legendary editrix. “She got tired of something she was obsessed with, and I think that is what fashion is. You don’t know what you want until you see it, and then when you’ve got it you sort of want something else. That’s what keeps the whole thing going.”

Vogue Mexico’s March Cover Disappoints (Forum Buzz)

There’s been a lot of debate this week on our forums about the various worldwide editions of Vogue beginning to resemble each other. Now, Vogue Mexico jumps on the Gilles Bensimon bandwagon by tapping the French and Australian Vogue favorite to shoot its newly-released March 2015 cover. The legendary French photographer captures Edita Vilkeviciute wearing head-to-toe Chanel, styled by Sarah Gore Reeves. The Lithuanian beauty makes her way through a sea of parasols, appearing remarkably polished for a trip to the beach.

The majority of us cannot help but feel unimpressed. “This is really sad. She’s such a beautiful model and here she looks awful,” GlamVal posted the moment the cover surfaced on our forums. He later returned and said, “I can’t believe this hideous angle is shot by Gilles Bensimon.” Not off to a very good start.

“I love Edita but I had higher expectations from her & Bensimon. Both can do much better than this. And I don’t like black text in combination with the peach shade,” added KateTheGreatest.

Forum member kokobombon couldn’t wrap her head around the outcome, either. “Edita + Gilles should equal an amazing cover. Instead we’ve got this, it looks like a catalog imo…so cheap looking when the clothes are so not,” she noted.

MON wrote simply, “This is an eyesore.”

Does the cover remind you of something? It does to khyrk, who commented, “Looks like an extension of her Juicy Couture campaign.” We see that, too!

Things later started looking up. “She is one of the most stunning women in the industry,” admired littlekiki.

“Love this, funny 80s in a great way,” responded GlamorousBoy.
