On Tuesday night, I had the pleasure of attending an event for Francois Nars held on the ground floor of the swanky boutique department store, Henri Bendel in New York City. Although Mr. Nars had left long before I arrived, I did enjoy meeting all of the friendly gals I've been speaking and emailing with for months over at Nars Cosmetics.
The event was an exhibition honoring the work of Francois Nars. What I learned is that not only is he the head of NARS, but he's also quite a talented photographer. This soiree was put together to commemorate a compilation of ten years of NARS ad campaign images.
The event team transformed the store into an art gallery and had pictures on display as well as giant cubes hanging from the ceiling with different photos on each side. The hosts of the event were Lydia Hearst, Dayle Haddon and Amy Wesson and supposedly Avril Lavigne, Linda Evangelista and Tinsley Mortimer were set to arrive, but I did not see them there.
I did however get to speak with fashion designer Anait Bain and our talk ended with her complimenting my jacket - yay! I also walked away with a fab NARS Jaipur candle that you will certainly be hearing more about!
